Statuary

It always pays to embrace the season and so at this time of year I could say my heart turns to stone! Of course there is always an inner hanker for a lusty May Day but the joy is really that it’s gone and will come again. The here and now is November and for the garden it is all about the drama of structure. Stone looks particularly elegant in a cool light – it makes you want to touch it and blow breath clouds onto its flintiness. It looks reassuring, eternal and always the better for being old, mottled and moss addled. What could be better than a chance glimpse of a pretty renaissance face peaking from some dark green ivy perhaps. There but not. 

A place I like to go it is The Vintage Garden Company for a browse around and today I have taken a few pictures of some lovely faces for a new project. Click on the link and talk to Sally if any of these interest you.
