Art in the Garden - Kiwi Garden

This is always a fabulous event! We attended in 2011:  Perth's Art in the Garden, in 2012, and in 2013. Amazing piece of art, sculpture, glass work, metal work.
Also, a wonderful selection of plants in their nursery. If they haven't got one potted, they will pot it up for you. A vast army of people to help us park, too.

Hubby wanted to buy a cat, as a memorial to our Oliver. I repurposed a headboard, painted the cat black, and attached the piece. It is dedicated to both our black cats, who didn't look both ways when they crossed the highway. We call our Lot #2 Oliver's Lot, since this was where Oliver spent much time looking for prey. Lovely, deep grasses, where the deer feed, as well. I attached the board with lag bolts to a huge, dead log I hauled over from the middle of his lot.
The headboard isn't exactly rubbish, but it could have been. We got rid of the rest of the bed and mattress, as they were pretty old! More rubbish by Roan.



Not only fabulous, creative sculptures, but they have music, and an amazing array of foods, as well as a pizza oven, on-site. Here are my photos.

What a fun event, I'd need a trailer, in case everything I saw I liked ended up at our place, Lovely black cat, headboard and log, perfect place for Oliver's memory. Cheers,Jean.

Quite an eclectic lot! What draws my eyes is the sculpture of the woman.

You found some really fascinating stuff! I like your repurposed headboard, as well as the rustic wood gate further down in the series.

Dunno, William, she kinda gave me the creeps! It's from a human figure, using a form. I'd hate to meet her in the woods!
