Garden Signs for Unique Gardens
What’s your sign?
This collection of ideas should help you zero in on the perfect sign for your garden unless you’re like me and have a terrible time deciding.
Some of sweet, others are funny, a few are dark in humor or a tad sarcastic.
I’ve listed shopping sources wherever I’ve been able to.
I hope you find what you’re looking for.
