Garden art comes in many different forms. These Horses in Singapore’s Gardens by the Bay Indian Garden are delightful.
But you don’t have to buy garden art.
The inspiration from the florists’ hall in any garden show gives so many different looks which can lead to art that is individual as you.
The creative art on show makes me realize that garden art can be created from anything.
Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show 2014 gave some great examples
Look at this from Aladdin and the Flower Show
It would be easy to put up a mural and then plant and add cushions and pots and lighting to enhance the space – wonderful.
And while the bed in the photos below really attracted the crowds it was the detail in this display which really comes up with some ideas. Both of these displays show how to pull something together using stuff which really does not cost an arm and a leg.
This old chair with milk basket holding a pot of flowers looks great. And so does this old bench with buckets of spiky purple blossom.
And this one I Live It. Needless to say I love the message behind the display but I also love the simplicity of the figures and the energy.
Inspiration in cane….
I would add the flowers in small pots or with a climber…
In Singapore, the towering cane cones with orchids would easily lend themselves to something similar with flowering or green plants. Three of these lit in a corner would make for individual and majestic features.
And look at these woven birds from the Ellerslie Flower and Garden Show in New Zealand. I thin they are cute…
Most of all I have to say it is the clusters of things apparently from nothing arranged to say something that I love. Look at this wonderful driftwood furniture found in the Chelsea Garden Show in 2011.
And this wonderful panel – so simple but a vertical garden at its best.
