Circular Iron Grate Fountain at Phipps Conservatory

Ingenious use of a tree pit made into a child-proof fountain.

As a designer who often works for clients with small children, I am a big fan of this circular iron grate as a safe way for children to interact with a water fountain in the garden. It is futile to try to keep children out of the water! They were meant to paddle and play in it. So this design makes a beautiful and worry-proof water feature that is suitable for any garden. I recently found the company who supplied this iron grate: Urban Accessories in Tacoma, WA

UK Gardens

Well, I finally made it! After all these long years of waiting, my hubby and I were able to take a nice eleven day trip to the UK in June.

Lenten Roses in Bloom

I'm in love with Helleborus 'Pink Frost' in the Rose garden. It needs a few more ;)
They are all under snow now.

But oh! What a lovely start to March!

First Snowdrop Sighting!

Galanthus elwesii
One of the most exciting January moments is finding that first snowdrop, usually in the Birch Walk.
Stay warm friends!
