Remember the Garden Bloggers Spring Fling in Asheville, NC? It was not that long ago and still so fresh on my mind. I brought back a piece of Wamboldtopia with me to incorporate into my GEORGIA GARDENS. Click HERE to see Wamboldtopia.
It was a sunny day when capturing my creation with this long shot. So a bit difficult to see within. I am adding this shot to show the location of this scene along the woods edge.
Moving in closer, we can see my little creation much better. An Elm tree fell after a freak and rare snow storm in Feb 2010. Click HERE to read about this fallen tree. We were not able to remove this heavy stump so we left it in place all this time.
I knew in time, I would come up with something to make this stump look nice. Robert Frost Hosta, Samuel Blue Hosta and an unknown Hosta along with Purple Coral Bells and Creeping Jenny.
Krossa Regal Hosta, Tiramisu Coral Bells and Creeping Jenny. This Hosta was found and added after the Coral Bells were planted. It shall be switched with the Coral Bells when cooler weather arrives this fall.
Since this is my little piece of Wamboltopia, I had to add this Fairy found at the Goodwill store. The topper is not exactly what I was looking for but will work for now. I know in time, I shall find the perfect castle type topper to this enchanting area.
I added stone to keep with the Wamboltopia inspired gardens.
The Saint calls the stone work, a little Stonehenge. This stump has sat in this place for 2 years now just being a dead tree. After my trip to the Fling in Asheville, I have been INSPIRED BY WAMBOLDTOPIA, In the Garden...
