Rocks and a Head

When my wife and I inherited her mother's gardens, we were determined to put our own imprint on them, but just as determined to preserve their historic elements. That included the beds bordered with rocks my mother-in-law had gathered from various areas of the U.S. while on family vacations. I'd been wanting to expand on the rock theme but couldn't quite decide how. Then I came upon the perfect solution. I found a head.

And ambitious to do something myself. I tip my hat to you. I love gardens that do this and one of my favorites is Brookgreen Gardens in Murrell's Inlet, SC near Myrtle Beach. The walls of poetry and sculpture throughout the gardens really is good for the soul. Definitely worth a trip any time of year.
