Private Garden showcase

I was lucky to be invited to bring some of my glass to a private garden tour and plant sale last weekend. Creating art for the garden is wonderfully fulfilling but actually being able to decorate an beautiful existing garden with my art is the icing on the cake for me.

Robin Haglund of Garden Mentors has a gorgeous city garden and she makes use of every square inch including both edibles and ornamentals, annuals and perennials.  Adding my glass “jewelry” to this already beautiful space was a dream. Here are some pictures of the glass in her garden:

Elise Haavick creates wonderful containers and I was able to add a little bit more bling to her already wonderful creations.

These glass Flowers and Fiddlesticks add year round color to any part of the garden – without needing water or fertilizer!

Robin hosts a couple of Honey Bee hives in her garden for Corky Luster of Ballard Bee Company. 

I started making Bee Preservers which are floating orbs with added texture so the bees can safely land on the orbs and crawl down the side to drink water without drowning. The Honey Bees also landed briefly on a garden visitor  (but no one was stung!).

Our regular pond floats look wonderful floating in water or jazzing up gardens. Even one float in a small area can create huge impact.

Here are some pictures of Robin’s garden – she does an incredible job of creating visually fun and decorative edible gardens.

Near the end of the afternoon Lacia Bailey arrived with one of her newborn (6 day old!) doelings. We all had great cuddles and the dogs were very confused!

All in all it was a wonderful day and we hope you enjoyed this virtual tour!
