Garden Photo of the Day

Still in Bali…and loving it!

Yesterday just wasn’t enough of Michelle Derviss‘ awesome garden, so today we view it from another angle. Here’s what Michelle had to say about this little tableau: “In 2006 I traveled to Bali with a local gardening group called the Hortisexuals.  We found this wonderful little hole in the wall shop in a small village that sold traditional Balinese ceremonial umbrellas that are often seen in the local temples and used in wedding and other celebratory parades.
It is small touches like this umbrella that evoke a sense tropical escapism in my garden and remind me of past exotic traveling adventures.” Thanks, Michelle! Check out Michelle’s blog here.
