“Rust Has a Home” is a suburban setting for fruit trees, herbs, and flowers which are the incidental backdrop for the gardener’s many collections.
Galvanized treasures and found objects are displayed with whimsy and prominence. Shovels, old wire gates, and salvaged chairs that mingle in the plantings are all props and focal points within this limited palette of pink, purple, and white. Cobalt blue bottles and an army of vintage trowels encircle the flower beds.
A new area, “The Camino Garden,” was added to remember and reflect the gardener’s recent pilgrimage across Northern Spain. Custom designed stacked stone benches, Camino symbols, and a water feature recreate, “the Way to Santiago.”
