I did it

Landart‘ “à ma façon” ! I did it … my way. Landart is some kind of art, in which you invest the garden with a piece of art, a sculpture, a stone, a painting, a photograph, preferably recycled or weathered or really looking home-made…

I recycled a wooden feature that used to welcome visitors in the entry hall of our house. Until Mike Lucky Spade and his tall figure lead the head to collide with it, causing its end as a one-piece feature. So we had two pieces of wood : the two faces had been seperated and it would have taken only a few drops of superglue to mend it. Only it wasn’t a favourite feature of Mike’s anymore, probably due to the fact that it hurt when it hit… The two faces laid dormant on a shelf in the study for a looooong time, until this morning, when I needed to put some schoolwork away. They were in my way, and I thought I was going to repair it once and for good.

It appeared as flash : I could see them by the pond, nestled amongst our fushia nursery. What do you think ? Better outdoor or indoor ?

The reds have come forward a lot lately at Botanic Bay :

and my new rose ‘Louis de Funès :
