New Decorative Feature

September 20th, 2018

I purchased this armillary years ago, but never had a stand to put it on. Earlier this summer, we had some pieces of cedar left from making raised beds, so I whipped up this stand to put it on. I’m happy to finally have it in the garden, getting rusty and looking great. It’s probably been sitting in my garage for 15 years.

It’s covering up our well head, which it nice because now it’s a feature and not an eyesore in the middle of the yard.

It’s not super tall, about two feet. I surrounded it with marjoram, next spring I plan on digging it up and replacing it with calamint so it’s a bit shorter.

Have you added any decorative features to the garden this summer?
