WHIMSEY IN THE GARDEN

Barbara Whitaker is a Master Gardener who shows off a sense of humor in her garden. Her garden was on the Lexington County Master Gardener Volunteers Garden Tour in South Carolina last year. Some of the whimsy displayed in her garden might just inspire you to add a little fun to your yard.

Her scarecrow is all dressed up in garden finery, rivaling any flower with her wild color pallet. Love the purple shoes and check out the southern belle pearls around her neck.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Don’t you just love the switch plate used as a garden marker? Bet you could find some at a Thrift Store, donated when someone changed their décor. It is screwed onto a wood stake and the name of the plant is written on the stake, showing through the switch hole.

 

 

 

 

The garden froggie is hiding in some greenery.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This fish out of water might be looking for froggie! Or is it the other way ‘round?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is one of my personal favorites and it proved to be a favorite of many of the people touring her garden. It is a wine glass holder made out of a garden rake and attached next to the garden swing. Perfect combination.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Last but far from least is this garden fan trellis repurposed into a rack for hats and other gardening accoutrements.
