There are many aspects to the Historic Gardens that are of interest each and every season. Many of them are made of metal, and these are the ones I have chosen to feature in Week 6 of Project 7×52.
#1 – Railing: A great combination of function and form, created by metal artist Brad Hall.
#2 – Heron Silhouette: Dance of the Blue Heron, by Gerald Jank, stands on the front lawn for all the community to enjoy.
#3 – Plaque Bolt: The detail on the bolts holding our 30 year old “Opening Day” plaque.
#4 – Fire Bowl: This chickadee sits atop our copper fire bowl, in the courtyard during the winter for Winter Market fun.
#5 – Basalt II: This detail shot of Brad Hall’s Basalt II shows the rusty patina developing.
#6 – Tool Bird: This character, created from old garden tools, graces the doorway to the Gardens Shop.
#7 – Detail Wrap: Again, by Brad Hall, this is some of the detail found on posts and rails in the Gardens.
We are so fortunate to have a wealth of wonderful artists who are happy to display their work in the Historic Gardens.
