Every Garden Needs A Magic Ship
If you were in the blogging world in the early 2000′s, you’re familiar with what a small and wonderful world it was.
Blogging software and internet connections were rickety and unreliable —sometimes entire posts would vanish forever— but the payoff was all the people you could meet and new worlds to explore —prior to the overflowing wealth of what we have today. Plus, it actually seemed possible to know everyone in your blogging niche and keep up with content and comments.
Maitri is one of those early birds who came upon my blog back then (Pioneer Woman With Cell Phone) and we have had a mutual admiration society for each other’s art and gardens ever since.
I finally asked permission to share Maitri’s garden here. If you’d like to see more, you can find Maitri here: at maitriatdragonflycottage.com and facebook.com/Maitrisheartandhands and pinterest.com/maitrilibellule/.
Let’s have a look around. The theme, as you’ll see, is vibrant colours and garden decor with character. And yes, I think you can tell a lot about a gardener by seeing their garden style .
First, the Magic Ship:
Words cannot express how much I love the mermaid who guides this ship:
At the side of the shed, here’s a little rose greenhouse, painted pink:
Flowers and picket fence —another signature in Maitri’s garden style:
We share the eternal question: how to place bird feeders for optimal viewing yet minimal squirrel dining:
Colourful picket fence:
Giant flying fish:
Raised beds, perfect for backs and knees that don’t like to bend so much:
Another little rose greenhouse, made from old windows:
After seeing them all together, I’m thinking of doing the same for my stash of roadside windows. See how great they look:
Reclaimed iron fence keeps the flamingos from roaming too far:
A tall, curious rose:
The bold, happy colours tie the entire space together:
And last but not least, the shed is painted to match:
I hope you’ll visit Maitri and tell her the Empress says hello. She recently launched a whole new blog with lots of bells and whistles, and you are welcome to join her and see where that Magic Ship goes:
