Herb Society Picnic

Last Tuesday night we had our Herb Society summer picnic at one of our member's house, (Kathy S). We gathered in her beautiful back yard. Herb people are such great cooks, I guess that's why they love their herb gardens.

I wandered around taking pictures of some of her garden accents. There were so many to choose from. The following are a few.

She has 4 of these antique chairs painted with herb words and pictures.

This is a great outdoor stone mosaic clock. I think she may have made the mosaic pieces throughout the garden.

A glass beaded sculpture.

Paths leading to other gardens.

A little rusted doll chair tucked in the flowers.

Sea shells strung on a rope to remind her of time spent at the ocean and a rusted gate.

Another rusty gate with a vine growing up it.

A mermaid.

A gargoyle watching it all.

Bottle bush with vintage bottles.

She had several bird baths throughout the gardens with this wonderful little spinner in them, it keeps the water moving so no mosquito larvae settle in.

A great piece with North, South, East and West each on a different side.

A beautiful bird cage hanging in the flowers.

This weekend I'm having a natural dying class in my dye studio, stay tuned next week I should have some wonderful pictures to share with you.
