Wonderful Garden Junk Potting Table
The Boy Wizard Is Now A Wild Gardener
Last summer on a garden tour I discovered this wonderful garden junk / folk artist. His entire garden was filled with creative, repurposed ideas. And punny functional garden art like this Hairy Potter Bench.
This one is definitely going into my Potting Bench Photo Gallery.
The Potions Are Ready
The tour was very busy and the garden was fairly small so unfortunately I had to snap photos really fast to avoid inconveniencing others (or accidentally photographing them). Or falling into the claw-foot tub/pond (you’ll see it in an upcoming post)!
There are glimpses of more from this garden (and others) here: Rusty Garden Art Gallery.
Cacti, Old Licence Plates, and Barber Shop Pole
I love how he set up the bench to look like some sort of mad scientist / wizard / gardener works there, with somewhat ghoulish looking potions (I see chives in there!).
This potting table was just one tiny bit of this guy’s wonderful imagination. I’ll have lots more of his ideas to share in upcoming pots. He does not have a website but sells his wares locally once a year so I hope to track him down there.
It was a really fun garden to visit just to see the variety of garden art/junk. There were even some plants including veggies growing in there too!
