I don’t mind stealing a phrase many others have used concerning the Asheville garden of Christopher Mello, visited by garden bloggers (our annual get-together) this past weekend.
The space is dominated by a central circular space filled with Tonka trucks and surrounded by upright shovels. There are also perennial borders—amazing blue (ish) poppies and campanula among other plants—and many other found object constructions. Spectacular bottle trees are another prominent feature.
Some members of our group suggested there might be a gender divide when it comes to truly appreciating such a garden. Others disagree. What do you think?
