Signs In My Garden
Last week I shared three smiles in my garden.
This week? I'm sharing signs.
I have all kinds of "words" in my garden . . .
(They're everywhere in my garden, actually.)
But today, I'm going to share 3 signs I don't think I've shared before.
First, there's this one.
This one is right next to my garage, right at the top of my driveway, so that anyone pulling in can see just what we stand for . . . in this house. It's a standard yard sign that I have nestled into my front flower border. It works. Enough said.
Then, there's this one . . .
Many years ago, I certified my garden as a Wildlife Habitat with the National Wildlife Federation, and Tom was kind enough to get me this lovely plaque to mark my garden. The sign gets obliterated in the summer by my very happy and very vigorous Autumn Joy clematis, but I do get asked about it quite often - especially in the spring and fall, when the sign is more visible. I love having a garden that is welcoming and safe for "woodland creatures" . . . even if it means deer nibbling on my hydrangeas and bunnies shredding my basil. (If you want to learn more about certifying your garden, click here for the scoop.)
And last, there's this one . . .
A gentle reminder.
And the epitome of what I want my garden to remind me (and anyone visiting it) to do!
How about you? Do you have any signs in your garden?
