I just love the decay of glitter / adornments. They are slowly sinking back into the garden. i imagine that these are from the 40s - maybe 30s or 50s even?? Whatever, i can't believe i actually like them alot! the last shot is a manzanita from a cutting i took in the wild. it doesn't key out to any known manzanita, but in between several of them. it's the best/most beautiful manzanita i've found for containers. this one flowers for 4 months and even a little longer, never needs pruning, develops a very beautiful structure slowly and w/ a minimum of water and always looks fresh and green w/ bright orange coffee bark covering it's sinuous trunks.
i wouldn't call the wall medallions 'folk art' except that it was the only category which comes even close to 'cement garden art / statues'. ??
