Crayon Garden Sculpture, Lubbock, Texas

crayon garden art sculpture

While I find this to be stunningly beautiful as a piece of art, I can’t help but wonder about the practicality of this particular landscape installation.  Using thousands of large crayons, artist Herb Williams created a field of sculpture flames for Unwanted Visitor: Portrait of Wildfire at the National Ranching Heritage Center in Lubbock, Texas.  My concern….will these not melt in the hot Texas sun?  Perhaps it is only temporary, it would certainly be a fantastic permanent display.

  1. I believe that that is part of the plan for the sculptures–the heat causing an ever-changing work of art. Very cool.

  2. Hey,

    Love the blog, you def have a new follower.

    I was wondering if you knew what kind of plants are good for heavily shaded gardens? we have a tiny tiny city garden, but it is surrounded by big oak trees which i suspect are sucking the life out of everything, couple that with it not getting an ounce of sun and me being a complete novice, i’ve no idea what to plant in there, everything from last year died.

    thanks for your help!!

Garden Umbrellas with a Twist

Sywawa has one of the most imaginative collections of garden umbrellas and bases I have seen. I love when a good design team puts their minds to re-imagining the mundane and transforms it to spectacular. This laundry inspired version is my favorite. I love the breeziness of the BREEZER, -“a new parasol concept which plays…

Garden Fresh Tomato Juice

Garden Fresh Tomato Juice

I’m overwhelmed with tomatoes.  My few beds are producing about 25 lbs of tomatoes every few days.  So I have this idea — now that school is back in session.   I’m making little morning gifts for a few mom friends (in honor of the first full week back to school)…it involves lots of tomatoes, souped up with celery, and the peppers…
