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 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.

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.

Featured Artist: Allison Armour

A garden can be a sanctuary, a visual and sensory delight, a source of food, a habitat for nature’s various creatures and birds, and a place to satisfactorily work on a hobby or passion. It’s also an appropriate place for art.

I recently read about Allison Armour and her award-winning work. I was immediately struck by the simple beauty and elegance of her pieces. The light-catching metal reflects and enhances the wonderful array of colors in a garden and the sky. The sphere fountain adds a soothing water feature to an already peaceful place.

Look at the mirror obelisk for more inspiration. It’s mirror surface reflects the flowers and sunlight while it’s pointed and sharp-edged shape offers a striking contrast to the softness of the plantings.

Here are additional photos of her spherical fountains and sculptures:
