I suppose like any person who loves their profession the job is never really shutoff and left behind at the office at 5pm. As a designer, I am constantly looking, admiring, studying, oohing, aahing, and occasionally judging (though i like to limit that urge). Today I was walking Murphy (the dog) and came across one of my favorite neighborhood gardens and it managed to spark the spirit of one of these oooooooooohhhh moments. I thought I would share with you this wonderful space that has been deemed worthy by the National Wildlife Federation as a Certified Wildlife Habitat! It’s a gem of a garden on a dead end road that we were lucky to find – I suppose i should thank the dog. What was particularly interesting in this garden to me were the awesome metal sculptures that adorn the mature succulent display. They are wonderfully hand crafted heavy metal and rustic in appearance, and against the wildly colorful cactus and succulents they seem to fit in right at home. I hope you enjoy these as much as I did.
