Birds in One Show Garden


*
Love it! A bird! And not just any bird. A bird with laces, a crown and jewels for a wedding party! And not just a wedding party, but a wedding in the garden! And not just a garden, but a garden at the Northwest Flower and Garden show. There was a whole flock of these birds! 'Garden in Verse' reminded me of a theatre. It even had walls! And the flowers, of course, were all white:




To learn more about these romantically funky bird sculptures please check d4collective blog posts here and here.


‘Caprifolium’ and McGilvra Elementary School created this flock of Ibis. All the birds have names: Dudley, Emmett, Paris, Gloria, Mrs. Wentworth, Beulah Margot, Maria Rosita and Florence B (check their blog to see what else they call this lady on the right):

  14. Their planting scheme is just perfect with all of those white spring blooms - fluffybutt and co are wonderful additions never mind all that lace. it was great to pop over to their blog and see how they were preparing for the grand opening. I'm sure that is one project those kids will never forget.
