Community Garden Ornament .. Artifact

Our community garden is located on the property of a once grand estate in town,
an historic house that survives along with deteriorating walls and ornamentation.


The hardscape is quite amazing, though falling ever deeper into disrepair.

    1. Thanks Mark and Gaz,
      It's one small bit that caught my eye. There are other colorful terra cotta forms, and some are quite odd in their design.

  2. Hopefully, that and other forms can be saved or some generous folks can pay for replicas! Nice moss, too.

    1. Hi David,
      You can imagine the difficulty getting funding for such projects these days...

  3. I like it because it's not perfect and yet it's organized. It's comforting in some way, and has a lot of character. Good luck with the garden!
