| Ya'll are welcome to visit the garden here... see all the containers...just let me know when you'll be by..|

|Well... two lovely ladies have shown up for the tour...|
MMMMM I've got some interesting ideas as to how to introduce them to gardening..
Oct 3, 2011 6:13 PM CST
|well... the best way to introduce them to container gardening....|
to see what it's like it to become one...

|Looks like a couple of very elegant visitors and a couple of gals who are very appreciative of container gardening.|

|Gordon you are just a down right amazingly creative person. That is indeed an elegant gardening lady. : )|

|I think the height on those allows for extra creativity. All kinds of creeping plants would work well. I wonder what kind of plant would work good for a Mohawk right in the middle,,,|

|Lynn... well...thanks... they are elegant.. and a bit spacey also.. I wanted to use that... n something more exciting..|
Connie.. yes.. they seemed to be appreciative... very receptive.. I thought MoHawk myself..but there I go again.... there's surely more exciting things about.. than ivy... but this time of year here... if it's not a cactus... a mum.. or aster... oh.. perhaps an ornamental cabbage... your out of luck.. I did get a few spikey things to improve a shorter ivy.. I did one years ago... with Tahatian bridal veil as the hair... it hung so well... so full ... with the tiny white flowers sprinkled through out... it was perfect.. one of these will go in a botique designers store window... she makes piles of the cutest things... so durability was also a concern for one of them.. she had a bag of heads when I beged one from her ....n exchange I'd do one for her... I could see them in more extravagant ways in every hair salon n town... I'll try to get one to trade for my next do...
Tahatian bridal veil pictured...imagine it trimed around her face..

|It would be stunning to say the least.|

|well with not much in the stores now... our second lady was able to start something going on with her new Do... she got a smlar treatment... a bit shorter.. but with a bit of a sprouting on the top.. they are both anamored of container gardening now... and don't want to grow in any other way..|
she seems to be breaking out in a bit of a sweat though...

|Those are very lovely dos. The ladies look right at home!|
Oct 6, 2011 3:32 PM CST
|That's what I call stylish, Gordon. And very creative. |
Why is she sweating?
Oct 6, 2011 3:40 PM CST
|lol....oh.. container gardening is exciting... and a good work out.... it might just be left over from her after do wash .. when I saw it in the photo my first thought was she's come alive and is sweating ..|

|She may be a cousin to Pinnocchio.|

|Funny Lynn.. that's exactly who I first thought of when I thought she'd come alive with her visit... |
well.. for the less adventuresome.. or those living too far away.. there's a soon to be released here on ATP an account with a battery of pictures..of another couple of lovely ladies to have made the garden tour here.. Luckily they escaped without being planted.. or seeded watch for it...

|How exciting Gordon, I can't wait to see and will definitely be watching for it.|
Oct 7, 2011 5:16 PM CST
|Well... I dropped one of the origional ladies off @ the designers... there... there was a group of ladies.. having heard about the garden tour ... with all of it's joys and pleasures.. hopping into the car... well we got back here..... |
We'll go to some plant stores and garden centers.. tomorrow to get some floral accents for them...
Oct 7, 2011 5:23 PM CST
|Wow, more garden buddies.|
Oct 9, 2011 8:17 AM CST
|well... a few more get to leave with gardening on their mind ..|
Oct 9, 2011 9:14 AM CST
|Gordon those are just amazing. I see you did the Mohawk style. |
And just look at the tresses on the last one. Bet she is proud of those.

|Gordon are you preforming surgery on the ladies? Are they hollow? I collect head planters and I am often disappointed when it's a statue not a planter. Never occurred to me to cut into their head and make them a planter. Tell us all about converting them to planters please.|
