It's supposed to be very cold tonight. I'll be out in the dark this evening covering my plants with old fabric remnants and sheets. This crazy cold doesn't stop a girl from dreaming though. I've already mentioned that this is my year… my year of getting the backyard into shape.
I love where the internet leads me… "Devon" commented on my last blog post and I followed her name to her blog… and low and behold… I find THIS post she did on Garden Architect David Pfeiffer… which led me to these images… (click to enlarge images for full effect)
Those corrugated galvanized forms made my heart race. I know my husband will know how to get our hands on some of these. We have a metal roof and galvanized porch railings on our house, our outdoor shower surround has galvanized curtain rods (to deter any peeping tom neighbors), and these lights adorn our entries… these would be very nice with grapefruit, meyer lemon, and kumquat trees planted in them… oh yes… I can smell the citrus blossoms already!
I love it. It's a little bit of everything! Which is what I think a garden should be… all about you and what you love. No set rules. David Pfeiffer has totally got it going on. I think that house has been published… it looks very familiar…? Ahhh, wait. I figured it out… his publications page leads me to believe it was probably this: June 2005, Country Home Magazine "Best of Both Worlds” -Vashon house and garden – David Pfeiffer’s Vashon Garden. Now I have my weekend homework cut out for me… finding the June 05 issue of Country Home.
Stay warm my friends… it's cold out there!!!
