Wildlife gardeners are a friendly lot, always eager to share a cutting of their favorite hummingbird plant, to pass along seeds from their garden, and to share their knowledge of the wildlife that visits their garden, and the plants that attract them. They are eager to teach others how to create welcoming habitats for wildlife in their gardens.
But they’re also amazingly creative, decorating their wildlife gardens with bits of whimsy, gorgeous art, and fun signs. These artistic touches create welcoming habitats for people. Comfy, beautiful, and creative spaces for human enjoyment and to benefit wildlife. What could be better than that?
Our own Barbara Pintozzi has taken up welding to create stunning garden sculptures in her beautiful wildlife garden.
And our own Gail Eichelberger has created a stunning bottle tree at Clay and Limestone. It’s simple yet beautiful.
How about a cupola growing in a wildlife garden bed?
A sign that makes a statement?
