I’ve mentioned several times in earlier posts (see previous post Anna Karin Gallery: Warming the Exterior) that Bill Loyd is making huge planters for our gallery out of rusty metal. Are we lucky or what? And he just installed the first two. The third will be placed in the corner at the front of the building, but we’re laying bricks in that whole area to create a little plaza, so we must complete that before Bill can put in the final planter. Patience, patience… Whaaaaaa! Can you tell I’m excited?
We started the day going to our friends Vicki and Brian’s horse ranch to get a trailer load of composted manure. I can feel you gardeners out there turning green with envy as I write this. I’ll admit it’s a completely different errand than running down to the local garden store to buy it in 50 pound bags. I like this way better.
Then we headed over to Bill and Anna’s to load the planters onto his tractor.
Next stop the gallery.
And, voila! Two beautiful planters are installed changing the front look of the gallery dramatically and immediately.
They aren’t planted yet. It’s still a little cold to be doing that, but Anna and I are buying plants and she planted seeds in little pots some time ago. Before we know it lush little gardens will exist out there where once was only dirt. THANK YOU BILL! And Anna. Lovely to have such talented friends.
Love to you all,
