There is no doubt that my yard is EZ. Actually that is how I came up with the tag line, Ez Herb Gardening. I spend so much time taking care of other peoples yards that my yard must be as maintenance free as possible. Most beds are perennial and we add contrast with yard art. Even the herb gardens get their share of gnomes, and bird houses.
Over the years we have had a blast filling our yard with unusual yard art. My husbands tastes and my tastes are very different. While he has an old toilet full of cactus. I have a sink full of flowers and herbs. Oh yea, I forgot I do plant an old bed pan.
I love walking through my gardens and finding little surprises, like cement frogs living among the succulents. Or a bright red bowling ball tucked under the green leaves of a Hosta plant. My favorite bowling ball looks like a witching ball. I found my first bowling balls at the thrift store for about 5 bucks.
Well, that is a quick tour of some of the stuff. It has been said that we run a museum. Hmmm
P.S. You can find unique planters and yard art online. I have a whole collection of turkey planters I have purchased online….but that is another story entirely.
