Garden Art in Indianapolis

When I attended the GWA Convention in Indianapolis last month, the 499 garden writers/tv/radio hosts and I were bused to various public and private gardens for a handful of tours. Two of my favourite spots were the Slow Food Garden (I'll post about this in the next day or so - fantastic!) and the Indianapolis Art Museum garden. Yet, no matter where we went, I loved snapping photos of the garden art and statuary. Here is a sampling of some of the pieces I encountered.

This handsome fellow was my favourite piece.

From whimsical to regal..

Where did her arm go!! :)


A statue in a private garden tucked among hundreds of hosta.

Another private garden. I loved this piece.

Oh Canada! In a sea of green, a lone maple leaf.

A very interesting garden that does a lot of weddings. Dozens of well-used candelabra scattered amongst the plants. Love it?  The garden writers had various opinions on this.. but it would be lovely in the evening..

A garden angel in the same 'wedding' garden.

Another view of the angel. So weathered.

  1. These were lovely; the maple leaf very special; the candelabra's a bit quirky but fitting the theme. Can't wait to see more photos of your fabulous trip.
