Crazy calyces

Working in the garden recently and stumbled on these flower calyces (the things that protect a developing flower bud) from a nearby Japanese persimmon. Nature creates the most amazing art if we just slow down enough to notice.

Art in the Garden

Art is subjective! Whether in a museum, your home, or the garden, art can be aesthetically pleasing , functional, and whimsical. There is art that will fit into every garden situation. Here are a few examples from the garden yesterday.

Birdbath – Aesthetics and Functionality
“Free Form” – Japanese Pyrophyllite Sculpture – Jim Phillips Sculpture

During the second weekend of our Fall Open Nursery & Garden Days Jim & Kathy Phillips will have a booth set up with pottery, stone sculptures & garden art. Find the perfect artistic element to fit your garden.
