I have a new obsession, and a garden trend prediction for 2012

Okay so I may be obsessed. Just a little obsessed. Hairdos in the garden. Meaning, plants in pots shaped like heads. I've had one in the kitchen sitting atop our coffee maker for the past 8 months or so. His name is Edgar.
Have you met Edgar?

Some people have walked in and stopped dead in their tracks asking "What. The. Hell. Is. That." Apparently it may be frightening. I find Edgar to be delightful.

And it's with this delight my obsession is growing, and over on Pinterest I have a whole board for Hairdos in the Garden.

I'm envisioning amassing a collection of them in our garden this year. Curly hair, medusa hair, dreadlocks, fancy combinations, mullets. Oh the thrill of it all. I love it when I get like this. And as for the potentially frightful aspect for some? That's only an indicator that I love it more. Weird is always, always good.

And as a garden writer? I officially predict wild hairdos planted in pots shaped like heads to be an official new trend. (at least in my own garden.)

More garden stuff over at my place on Pinterest here.

I spy a little girl behind  Edgar

Heather, I believe the saying goes: It takes one to know one. Bird lady.

AWESOME. Potentially frightful to some? In the wise words of Maurice Sendak, "let them wet their pants!"

These are delightful! I especially love the stone work and the "couple" discreetly tucked away.

I've been enjoying your blog so much. I look forward to your next contribution!
