Create Some Forever Flowers with Garden Art
Add a few year round no maintenance perennials to your landscape by converting discards and antiques into beautiful works of art.
This trio of flowers made from an old propeller and an assortment of mechanical parts is nestled into the garden bed.
The nearby plantings help connect the artwork to the landscape.
And, no this isn't a bottle tree. A closer look reveals the blue petals and reproductive parts of a flower.
Convert old bicycle wheels into colorful flowers. Fill the spokes with translucent glass plates. Attach a bird feeder for your feathered friends.
And these ever blooming blue bells are just overturned blue votive candles on posts.
Old edgers create the look and feel of allium flowers, adding year round interest to this natural planting.
A bit more information: Extend the color of your real flowers with a bit of flower paint. Select subtle colors that mimic real flowers for a more natural look. Or break out intense colors for a more eye-catching piece of living art.
