The rain and wind came, and the heat broke. (For now)
I have been so crabby and out of sorts husband took pity on me (or maybe himself) and took me to Bedrock Gardens in the southern part of the state today. It is a 37-acre parcel that was landscaped over 30 years as a hobby by husband and wife and now is in conservation.
This takes so much work and patience I just love the look.
There were hidden gardens all over the property.
And specimen trees everywhere. Trees not native to us.
The woman of the original gardeners sculps with scrap pieces of iron. Knock, Knock anybody home?
Well, hello! this is made from all found objects.
She has done lots and lots of bugs all through the property and yes sometimes the bugs do seem that big. (His body is a spring, legs saws, etc.)
We walked around sat in the swings enjoyed the day it took us over 2 hours to just enjoy.
There are over 200 sculptures throughout the property.
I was so pleased to meet John Forti while I was there. It really was just a chance meeting, but he was so kind to chat with us and he signed his book for me.
It you are a gardener and on facebook you really should follow him.
The Heirloom Gardener
even if gardening is not your thing, he also tells lots of folklore surrounding nature
And before we leave the garden, I had to show the beehives they were buzzing too! wrapped in electric fence to keep the bears out.
We went out to a lovely lunch. I had the shark bite. Really a Cosmo fancied up. I even ate the gummy shark.
Well, that was my day. this evening is so cool and crisp I will need a blanket to sleep with isn't that grand!!
Have a wonderful week!
