I ventured off the beaten path and found an unexpectedly peaceful place.

Hill of Trees

The ice crunched underneath my feet and tires,
adding sound to the otherwise silent landscape.

Three Trees and Nature's Light

Here were three trees, standing tall and majestic.

A Red Bench and a View

I walked across a field of hard snow to this red bench and thought to myself –
‘I’m walking on water’.
Being in the quiet and beauty of nature always makes me
feel connected to things greater than myself.

When did you last veer off the beaten path? What did you discover?

Garden Find: The Louisiane Bench

 

Louisiane Bench

 

Summer is nearly over here in Minnesota. People will soon be preparing their gardens for the colder weather. Does your garden have space for this French-made, red Louisiane bench? What a beautiful contrast it will make against the golden foliage of fall, the white snow of winter, the chartreuse greens of spring, and then the deeper greens of summer.

Go ahead: Imagine this curvy, poppy red bench in your garden. It has a lacquered steel base with galvanized slats and is covered in a glossy paint. The base receives the Cataphorese process, meaning it is dipped 17 times in an anti-corrosive bath, then powder-coated and baked. It can remain outdoors permanently. Wonderful lines, wonderful color. As the French say, “ooh la la”!

It was featured in the New York Times Home Section in January 2010 and it’s easy to see why. I’d love to see some of these in our city parks here in the Twin Cities. They would further enhance our beautiful public park spaces.

Available in a virtual sea of colors through American Country Wicker.

A Garden Full of Curb Appeal: Part 2

There is a wide variety of front gardens in view as one wanders around town. I find myself drawn to arbors and white picket fences with plenty of plantings. Here’s another example of an abundant front yard, complete with fountain, bench seating, trellises, zen rock sculpture, and blooms a-plenty! Enjoy.

A welcoming entrance to the front yard.

A most interesting plant. Anyone know what this is?

A pretty bench to sit and enjoy a pretty garden.

An attractive and colorful brick-paver path leads to the front door.

A lily pad pot and a fountain.

A corner amassed in blooms.

Lilies

Blooms on both sides of the fence.

A blend of English, formal and zen feel on this side.

The side yard gets green thumb treatment as well.

A wide mix of elements adds much charm to this garden.
