I’m a sucker for Pink…all of us are…I’m also a sucker for pretty dishes…especially Pink dishes. Well, look what I found at the Master Gardeners Herb and Plant Fair…
Yard Art made of layered Pink dishes…looks like a luncheon plate, a shallow bowl, and a salt shaker!
If you look at the top of the pink rose, you can see that it’s actually a salt shaker! The craftsman who made it is from Austin. She had the most amazing combinations, but I knew this would be right at home with the Opal Basil and the Polka Dot plant. I may let it spend some time in the side yard with the Purple Coneflower which isn’t purple at all, but a wonderful, bright Pink.
They were in full sun when I took this shot and the color is a bit washed out, but would you just look at all those buds! The flowers last forever and the center turns orange as it matures. Then the little finches come to eat the seeds. The deer love the flower buds, but leave the full open flowers alone. These are behind a little fence and I spray them with deer repellant to make them less attractive to the does and the fawns.
I’m heading out for a Margarita, some queso, and a fish taco in our favorite cantina on the banks of the Guadalupe River. But first I’ll link up with Beverly at How Sweet the Sound… I’ve noticed that my link is out of date, but my Blog guru, Nancy at My Crafty Little Page is not available to help me fix it…she just got a new knee last Friday and she is still working out the kinks…but, you know how to find your way back to Beverly’s Pink Saturday party.
