Welcome to Week #2 of FUN IN THE GARDEN! I’d only planned on one week, but the cool photos just keep coming! So, here we are, kicking off another week of fun and funky garden ideas. Enjoy!

TODAY’S POST: In Laura Crockett’s garden in Oregon, foam pool noodles lend a playful alien flair to the clumps of miscanthus at the entrance to her kids’ pool. Some curlicue metal antennae complete to poufball creature look! We’re having FUN in the garden all week! Got some photos of wild and whimsical features in your garden? Email me!

    The clumps of miscanthus remind me of a Puli in disguise. Great fun for the kids and their adults!
