In the garden today...well, actually yesterday!

Got some great ideas for garden art while visiting "The Vintage Roost," a cool little 3-times-a-year craft sale that takes place just a few miles from here. A group of women from Albany created this magical event, housed in a small barn constructed more than 100 years ago. It's an "invite only" event I've been attending for about 6 years...and I LOVE it!
Here are some scenes from yesterday...

"Leather Leaf" hydrangea, purchased from my friend who has created "Morning Wood Nursery." I now have 18 varieties of hydrangea to admire.

A view down the back pathway.

Barbie heads in the herb garden...nothing more to say...


The wisteria is in full-bloom along the back of our shop. We cut it back hard 2 times each year to encourage the big blooms!

Garden sculpture I bought at Fall Festival last September. It was produced by a local artist...and I'm going to visit her workshop soon so that we can design something with native fish images!
My newly revamped compost area. My husband and son reconstructed the original compost bin to have more open sides, for more air flow. I love it!
Wallflowers and Japanese Honeysuckle, along with some lavender just waiting to burst into bloom!
