The coolest garden clock ever created, an original work of art by Linda Hudgens of the Pink Elephant. Based in Tennessee, Linda creates only two garden clocks a year, one for the spring sale and one for the fall. Linda will spend months searching for the right found object to use as the clock face: this one is an old Dr Pepper sign. You can find The Pink Elephant in the North Gate Village in Warrenton on Aisle F (maybe F1, can't remember). Tell Linda you found her here first!
'Kolomikta' joins 'Table with Legs' in the courtyard: clearly I'm going to need some much bigger and more dramatic plants to go on either side of Doug Sargent's works of art. You can find more of his work at www.doug-sargent.com. Take a look at 'Unity' ... wouldn't it look fabulous in my courtyard? I need an anonymous benefactor to make it happen, though. Sigh.
And finally, the sculpture that captured my heart, mind and soul yesterday at Warrenton: an untitled piece by Al Roche' of Things A.T. Roche's. He has some stunning pieces out there that are way too big for my garden and my budget ... another heavy sigh. As I took these pictures earlier, neighbors on their morning walk came over for a closer look. One of them said she saw it as a heart around the earth. So I think I'll give it the title "Love Your Mother".
