Garden Whimsey - Part Two



Oh I'd be done by now with "Chicken Sampler", but I used the wrong color of Anchor floss.  I got the correct color - tried it out on Chicken #6 and liked it better  - it is a softer color.  So now it's Redo Chicken #1 Time.

Each of the gardens I visited had it's own personality.
Plant choice, and hardscape, and "Art Elements" combined to create unique gardens styles.
This gardener was not afraid of color and this bench illustrated that point nicely.

Every garden I visited had bird feeders, bird baths, and bird houses.

Look!  An African Tribal Mask!  Or is it? 

Do you think this frog is after...

...this ginormous mosquito?

A metal dragonfly.

Isn't this garden gate wonderful?  The property has belonged to the same family for 100 years.  The gate is composed of old tools that belonged to the great-uncle of the current owner. 

Another frog!

I mentioned birds earlier...this garden even had a peacock!

I would have to agree. 
I hope you enjoyed the Garden Tour.

Your chickens are adorable! I think it's a good thing I don't garden. I can see I would go crazy wanting to buy chatchkas for the garden if I did. Love all the pretty items!

The chickens look great, it's a pity though that you're having to change a colour. I love the colourful bench, very unusual.
