Plants and things

I am completely immersed and being slightly overtaken by plants at the moment.  There are a few garden plans on my desk that I am finishing all the plant lists for and so I am eating, dreaming, sleeping all the colours, textures, greens and flowers that are possibilities.

Narrowing the list is always a good challenge...how does one choose their top 10 favourite plants....impossible!

I suppose really it comes down to all the practical things sometimes, like soil and site and rainfall and aspect.

And then its always fun to throw a few wild cards and absolutley must have beauties in.

It's good that gardens don't just need to be about one thing I suppose also....there can be formal parts and flowering parts and vege parts that all work together to give a verdant green enjoyable landscape.

fun outdoor art

Every now and again its nice to come across something that is a little different, especially when it is using materials that are so familiar.
I thought this was really clever and a little intriguing.

Its all by a German artist Cornelia Konrads.  Its been described as installations that appear as thought the universe is reassembling itself and you walk in on the process....exactly!

Its fun and could be used anywhere....
hope it inspires you to do something quirky in your garden.
