Art at Keppel Croft

I got sooo many ideas from the art installations at Keppel Croft, I hope you do too.

I especially like the stone balls. I remember reading Frances post on making them, perhaps this summer I will finally get to it, now I have even more inspiration. If you missed the first part of my story about Keppel Croft, you can read about it here.

I realized after I published the post on Keppel Croft I forgot to give you the link to their website. Please do go visit, they have lots of interesting stories.

    Absolutely fantastic, have been trying to decide which I like best and I can’t, they are all so wonderful. I think they work especially well when surrounded by foliage, they set each other off. What a super garden to visit, thanks for sharing it with those of us who live too far away.

      Pauline, it does seem like there is a lot of art, but the garden is quite large, you can’t see most of them together, so it doesn’t look busy. Compared to the UK, there is not as many gardens to visit, so I will show you mine, if you show me yours.

    Such inspiration here, Deborah, thanks for sharing it ! (And the linkage, my friend.) Painting the ball blue, and/ or setting them on the obelisks, which I plan to make, someday, would be sublime with blue glazed containers. I look forward to seeing your projects come to fruition!

      I certainly was, love to see large gardens divided up into different areas, most gardens seem to have the standard foundation planting at the front, and then maybe a border on each side at the back, love something different.

    I particularly like the fourth photo down, with the swirly, red accented artwork. This place is full of inspiration!

    Gosh, what a wonderful place. Love the birdbath with it’s surrounding area in the ground. I’m having work done on my house soffits and changing the color. Visiting the Keppel Croft website gave me some additional ideas on how I might want to use the old metal trim that’s being replaced with a different color trim. Thanks!

    Hi Deborah – can’t decide which I like best – the obelisk with balls on top, the row of balls in the grass or Thyme to Pause. Made me think about how it’s those inanimate objects that make a garden more interesting.

    Deborah, Wow! So many wonderful ideas. I can’t decide which I love more; the turquoise items in the 4th photo from the top (what are they made of?) or the stained glass (?) birds of paradise. -Jean
