My Garden Accessories

Similar to people, gardens can be transformed with decorations, ornaments, etc. Some of them are practical and are meаnt to perform a certain function. Others are purely for eye pleasing. Garden accessories are earrings, necklaces, brouches and pins for a garden.
 I like these definitions of Accessory from BING dictionary:
- optional part: an optional part that may be fitted to something to perform an additional function or enhance performance
 - fashion article: an item of clothing that is worn or used for a fashionable effect with an outfit
Accessories in my garden do exactly what the dictionary says. Among their functions are: to hold, to prompt, to support plants and to enhance the garden performance.
The word optional is very important. I usually take some time to decide whether to opt for a certain item or to skip it. I prefer a garden which underuses accessories to a garden that is overwhelmed with them.
Together with  permanent items, I like accessories which can be moved in and out of the garden, relocated to a different garden corner and combined with other items.
Here are some of my garden accessories. Pictures can be enlarged by clicking.

























I hope you like them...

  1. Hi Tatyana, I like your approach to using garden accessories in an understated manner. Actually I like your accessories a lot. They are tasteful and I can feel that you selected them very carefully. I myself think that I haven't found my way with garden accessories, except containers, yet. Since my garden is very small I feel I have to really watch out to not overdue it. Also many reasonable priced items that you can buy here in America look often cheap and like kitsch in my opinion. I still dream of my English stone garden statuary and will most likely continue to do so for a long time. They are just way out of my price range :-(.

    1. Christina, as I wrote in the comment on your blog - tell everyone you need gift certificates for your B-day and X-mas. Also, I was always able to negotiate price in the place where I got my ornaments.Good luck!

  2. Those accessories in your garden certainly fit your garden style and maybe your home. I am sure the styles also depends on the personality of the owner. But among them i love that rock with crevices which plants grow. Those succulents are cute in there.
