My mother always said, “Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery”. Of course, I wasn’t flattered when my sister dyed her her red, (I wanted to be unique), but I hope that my friend Barry Parker is flattered.
If you read my post on Monday, you will have seen pictures of his delightful garden. I just love all of it, he is especially talented at building “objects” in his garden. And when I visited my dad on the weekend, and he had a load of bricks that he didn’t want I knew what I could do with them, (or at least what I would have Ian do with them, lol).
So, I had the free bricks, 2 free round paving stones, 2 free urns (my mums) and 2 free agaves (from work). Are you sensing a theme here?
The before, so sorry, terribly bad picture!
Can you see the pile of bricks on the right hand side of the picture, just behind the urn?
During-Ian hard at work.
Although I would love a stone wall a la Barry, I have cedars planted here already. One day, the clipped cedar hedge will meet this pedestal.
I love being a copycatio!
