Friday Fences - New England Garden Whimsy
Behind this graceful garden gate you'll find the hand of a gardener with a great sense of humor and talent for combining a stunning variety of plants. Nestled up against the garden fence, I spotted this "stacking" turtle water fountain. What were they thinking? "Okay boys, let's just keep climbing up on each others' backs and surely we'll be able to reach the gate latch and blow this joint!"
If you like this image, scroll down to the Valentine's Day post earlier this week for the huge terra cotta salamander entwined in the passion flower vine on the fence in this same garden. (photos taken on a late 90s garden tour of New England)
