A Garden of Delights

Though I am no green-thumb by any means, I have always had a passion for gardens and beautiful garden accessories. I suppose it has to do with my love for flowers and the sun and fresh clean air. As a young girl, I was fascinated with the book "The Secret Garden," and the collection of garden accents below are what I would have imagined that garden to possess.

For winter's rains and ruins are over,
And all the season of snows and sins;
The days dividing lover and lover,
The light that loses, the night that wins;
And time remembered is grief forgotten,
And frosts are slain and flowers begotten,
And in green underwood and cover
Blossom by blossom the spring begins.
-Algernon Charles Swinburne-

Oooo, gorgeous!! I love gardens, too. But, alas, I really stink at them. It's hard to keep pansies alive, when you're trying to ensure the well being of three little people.

Sorry to comment twice, but where did you find that mossy fountain. I couldn't find it on Ballard Design anywhere.

No need to apologize! Here is a direct link to the product. Let me know if you still have difficulties. I had to redo this comment to fit the url.
