It was a while back when I picked up this little wishing well. I see them in front yards all over the south so decided I needed one. I had no idea where to find one then someone suggested I look at Harbor Freight. I think it was Cindee at Cindee's Garden but not sure. Please correct me if I am wrong as to who gave this hot tip!
To the left of the well is the small Canna & Caladium bed I have talked about in the past. To the right of the well, is the banana plant that Tina gave me while on a visit with her. It came complete with roly poly bugs! Too funny Tina...With the Saints help, we dug out the grass into an oval shape. I then got busy and pounded a brick border and poured a pea gravel pathway from the grass to the well and around to the back side. Then I planted the Sage plants I had sitting on the back stoop for some time. You recently saw our last hummingbird sipping from the blooms. Then topped it all off with fresh pine straw.
I was not sure where the wishing well was going to end up but Lola helped me decide. Lola was kind enough to send me lots of Canna and Caladium from her garden this fall. So I needed to extend the Canna bed and this came to mind! Thank you so much for the inspiration Lola. As the Canna, Caladium and Banana trees flourish, I may end up extending this small garden to the swing and spread things out a bit. I can hardly wait until next summer to see what happens in this new garden.
Lola and Tina, Thank you both so much for the wonderful gifts! I will think of you both every time I look at my WISHING WELL, In the Garden...
