Garden Art: Dina Weiss’s Picket Fence

picketfence-detail
I’m hard to please when it comes to garden art.  Though not an art critic (I wouldn’t even begin to pretend I know enough about art to think I could reasonably critique) – I have strong opinions.

Art should feel imaginative and expressive.  I’m pretty sure it can’t be bought on a website…because to be right, I think it needs to be more personal than achievable through a retail outlet.  To me, the best garden art isn’t trying too hard, it makes me think, and it always surprising enough to make me smile.

Dina Weiss’s city-scape picket fence works perfectly for me….for sentimental reasons, I want one with a Denver skyline (sans mountains — because don’t you think that would teeter off the cheesy end of the art scale?).

I’m curious, what sort of rules do you follow when judging garden art?

The photography is gasp worthy as Starr is clearly a very talented photographer, writer and gardener. Go take a look, here is a little piece of what you will…

My “some day when my ship comes in” life (or at least when our savings gets back to somewhere near where it was this time last year) includes a house in the south of France or the south of Italy.   I yearn for a place where olive trees and lemons can grow in my garden…

The Scent of Nostalgia: Prairie Dropseed

The Scent of Nostalgia: Prairie Dropseed

Walking through New York city brings to mind a unique combination of good and bad smells. Cooking onions and sausages from street food vendors, fresh roasted coffee from the one of a kind coffee shop, and of course, urine from the subway and parks. Maybe it was the sense of smell that set the High…
