Hi Barbie – your post about Non-plant Garden Things you did last week motivated me look around the garden and see what photo-worthy “Non-Plant garden things” I have. I have a few but I don’t have as many as I would really like. Right now I’m dreaming of a statue for my deep-shade garden, maybe a fair maiden carrying a water jug, surrounded by some lovely ferns and moss, a few lillies at her feet, you get the picture? But when I mention that idea here at home I get raised eyebrows and weird sidelong glances, so I haven’t pursued it any further. But I’m sure my gardening companions would welcome it – for Hercules it would be another spot to watch for possible bird landings and as for Dexter … well, he’s been to known to cock a leg at strange objects and another would suit him just fine I’m sure.

But besides imaginary garden statues, what do I actually have? Here are a few favourites …

Posting these few favourite items that live in my garden but are non-plant related made me think a bit about the things that are not in the garden but are plant related. Are those classified as “Non-Garden Plant Things”? Like all the gardening books I’ve managed to collect in the last few months, the  now well-thumbed sample “Gardening Journal” I use daily and my watering can? What about my lovely chest that holds all my gardening paraphenalia and the iPad Apps for gardeners? Can I post those too? heck, you know what … this is my blog and I can post what I want to – so here we go …
