Sticks, Stones, Music and Flowers at Cottonwood

Cottonwood is an arts festival held every Spring and Fall in a northern suburb of Dallas. This garden display was erected just for the event two weeks ago, I believe. Anyway, I thought it was pretty. I wouldn't mind something like this in my garden.

Serendipity... Ben found a work kind of (very?) similar to this a while back so he'll post it tomorrow' I'm liking the idea of stone-on-a-stick a bit more now.

what they did with the stones (stuck on sticks) was quirky..the idea would be great for my future garden ;)

meg - yeah - I think it's rather lovely, although there's something odd about the weighty things being at the top. I also loved the wild grasses and heat-hardy native Texas perennials they had planted around them - it's like my style of gardening.

I reread our own post and found out ours have aluminum 'boulders' to look like rocks. Strange. Native plants are the best, aren't they, because they suit the local conditions, though some of ours are having trouble with global warming - oh, wait, that's because we're horrible gardeners.
