This is one of my favorite fountain statutes. I only wish I had a place to install it. Water lilies bloom best in still, calm water, so my new stock tank pond would not be a good choice. My koi pond is more natural looking with a large moss rock waterfall, so it definitely would look out of place. I’m left with leaving him near my teak garden chair where I can enjoy his company.
These Rustic Garden Bells hang outside my kitchen window.
The bees were off somewhere else when I took these photos of the coral vine (Antigonon leptopus). They soon returned that afternoon. The magenta to pink hues of this delicate vine are delicious. It is a prolific bloomer all summer long and well into fall.
Another shot of my new little friend. He is only about an inch long and clung patiently to a garden stake for me to take this photograph. When I leaned in to get closer, he vanished, and I haven’t seen him since. Tree frogs can jump so quickly that if you blink, you’ve missed it. They can cover a lot of distance too. I suspect he did not go far with all the tasty insects near my container garden and I hope to see him again soon. I’ll be listening for him outside my kitchen window.
I bought this piece about 12 years ago at a local nursery. It is a sundial, with the zodiac signs and angels. Lovely piece that adds structure to my garden space.
The coolness of this Plumbago (Plumbago auriculata) balances the warmer colors of my garden corner and gives your eye a place to rest.
Hope you had a wonderful fall weekend too!
