Garden day booty

So, as you may know, I attended the Garden Day workshop in Grand Forks on Saturday.

Well, I made a couple of purchases that I just have to share with you–I’ve got such a weakness for garden art!

Metal birdies

I just loved these little birdies–you probably know of my weakness for birds, too, and I just couldn’t resist them (especially since they were a measly FIVE DOLLARS).  Aren’t they adorable?  I’m not sure that this is their permanent home, but I had to stick them somewhere while I decide on their final placement.

Metal heron

Then there was this beautiful metal heron (at least I think that’s what it is)–I loved the white color and I also loved the cattails.  This piece, also, is probably not yet in it’s permanent home, but I’ve got a few possibilities.  I do like the way it stands out against the blue house and the darker shrubs behind it (which you can’t really see in this photograph, partly because the shrubs haven’t actually leafed out yet–haha!).

Daffodils

Then, I had to share the beautiful daffodils that are blooming right now–if last year is an indication, I should have about another 6 weeks or so of daffodils.  I love their bright yellow cheeriness!

It’s been a crazy week so just a short post–but I wanted to share my fun new garden art acquisitions.

And tomorrow after work I’m off to the cities for another MN State Master Gardener Advisory Board meeting, so no post again until Monday. . . but I promise I will actually bring my camera this time and take some pictures to share with you after I get back. :)

    Your metal heron has three cousins living on the south side of Flag Island, Lake of the Woods! Mine have rusted beautifully over the past 3-5 years!

      That’s great! Aren’t they just cool?? You probably got them from the same guy. I just couldn’t believe how reasonable his prices were–if I’d had Trevor’s truck I think I would have gone crazy. Haha! :)
