A Little Rock From The Garden Show

 

Some Rock from the “Gardens that Rock”, with a few critters thrown in and a lot of water.

HGS_Foggy_Falls

Add a little fog to your waterfalls.
Hopefully this little critter will not visit it though.

HGS_Foggy_Falls2

Those pesky deer are everywhere.


HGS_Fountain_Hyacinths

Smells divine. HGS_Garden

The possibilities are limitless for creating a secret garden.
I think Mary Poppins was in this very spot two years ago for the movie displays theme.

HGS_HydrangeaBlue

A little blue to soften the stone.

 HGS_Wolf

Its eyes followed me where ever I walked. LOL!


HGS_RockFountain

Fancy a bubbler…HGS_Waterfall

Or a small waterfall.

  HGS_Urn_Patina

I loved the patina on this urn, but the rock
bench may get a little hard after setting a while.

HGS_UrnBed
Urns are always big at the shows.

Some lighting within the rocks perhaps.

HGS_Twigs_Blue

Or  maybe some lighted flowers to soften an evening patio.
Okay, what can I say they were blue.

 Until Next Time,
Lona

Awesome post, Lona. It looks like you had a great time at the show. Those critters looked very real. I also loved the patina on the urn. Fun!

Dear Lona, I am sure the sounds and fragrances there were wonderful. Thanks for sharing!

Not so sure about the selection of garden critters. A coyote and skunk are not on my decor list. Real or resin.

Lona, that's my kind of garden show! A few tropicals and bright colors are fine, but I can't give up my pinks and blues.

someone stole my rock fountain idea :)

I have bigger and better stones though.

These photos are beautiful. A secret garden surely must hide within the confines of the stone and iron fence. It's so romantic and mysterious.

Loved the skunk in the top photo,too.

Love the pictures from the garden show. The skunk looks so cute on the rock, but a very smelly visitor to my garden. I hope you have great week.

I can hardly wait to compare notes with you this week. The magnolia was so lovely. V

I just love those bubblers, I'm going to have to get one someday! The purple carpet around my daffodils is simply Chocolate Chip Ajuga in bloom. I didn't plan it that way, but when they both bloomed at once, serendipity!

Hi Lona, Whoa, the skunk on the falls scared me, it looked so real! I loved all the rocks (of course I would) but are they trying to say that rocks attract wildlife? I'd better look into that, don't need skunks, deer, wolves and let's not forget my possums watching me every time I'm in the garden, it would make me paranoid!

The little blue flowers are cute and if they light up, hey, all the better. Thanks again for taking me along virtually to the Garden Show, I had a great time.

I'm wishing I had some of those pretty lights. The bubbling water would be nice to have. Looks like a lot of fun. I bet those hyancinths were heavenly.

I've really enjoyed your Home and Garden Show pictures. I'd love to see and smell real spring flowers here! Jean

Stephanie said...

Haha those lighted blue flowers... they are nice! I am sure they will brighten up a night garden well. I love the look of those urns also. That patina urn is beautiful and so classy ;-D

The Redneck Rosarian said...

Hey Lona, Great post. Love the big urns. The critters would be fun to have too! My dog would go crazy......

Tootsie said...

More beautiful pictures from the garden show. I really hope no skunks will be visiting my garden either :) I love the urns.
