Detail oriented....

My eye is always drawn to small details, touches that capture the special quality of an object, insignificant perhaps in the grand scheme of things, but none the less apparent to me...this is especially true in the garden....

The tiny green flower heads from a deciduous shrub have blown into a small bird bath and added a little touch of detail to an outdoor vignette...In direct competition with full blown white peonies in a vintage silver jug.....

Weathered and aged garden ornaments softened by late afternoon light add detail to an entrance way...

 

 

Adding a corona trellis to a planter with fledgling annuals in early Spring adds detail to a garden urn.....

Although the stone steps are holding there own in this corner of the garden, this rather formal garden accent adds detail to the soft ivy border.....

I love the small wisps of tiny fern fronds which add detail to the base of this rusted and weathered planter...

Adding accent planters to each side of the back path to our garden adds detail and structure......

More small ferns growing adjacent to this late summer planter add detail, not really needed here, but very welcome....

I love the added detail here of the rusted and weathered planter box, tiny ivy and bird bath against the moss covered terrace stones....

......more green detail!

 

 

 

 

.....so happy ivy grows here in the garden, climbing trees.....still waiting for it to cover portions of our red brick house.....

....absolutely gorgeous detail....provided by Mother Nature.....

....I have been waiting to add a table like this to my garden for some time.....

The detail is perfect.....moss covered beauty....

My husband would wonder about where to put his plate, the whole impracticality of it all...

Waiting patiently for the sun to shine and Spring to arrive, plotting and planning details

in the garden....

...all photos of our garden, the last two are from This Ivy House...
