These Garden Faces Add a Touch of Whimsy to any Garden Setting.
Garden faces take normal outdoor settings to a new level with their whimsical appeal. Helen Keller once said: “Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see a shadow.” This quote somehow seems to fit into this collection of garden faces.
Garden faces come in all forms, from those that have been purchased at retail stores, through ones that nature has somehow made along the way. And of course, let’s not forget those made by those who love to DIY.
I recently asked the fans of my Gardening Cook Facebook page if they had faces in their garden. This is what they came up with to share.
Crystal Harvey says: This is Mexican hand painted pottery. I purchased it on a trip this summer to CO. I can’t believe it made the plane trip, all in one piece. It is beautiful and of course the picture does not do it justice. I have never seen one like it. These two faces keep an eye on my fish pond garden,day and night.”
Bente Havelund painted this cute face on a rock in her garden bed. Her neighbor says that he smiles at her every day and cheers her up!
Amazing rustic Garden Sun face. Page fan Bob Tingwald says “this guy keeps an eye on our backyard gardens.”
From page fan Bente Havelund. Just smile!
Kris Keller Gause says that this face is Whichford. She hand carried him back from the amazing Whichford Pottery, in Shipston-on-Stour, England. What a great addition to any garden!
Natalie Adams shared this whimsical face with us. She says: “This was bought because my daughter, 4, at the time would stick her tongue out at me behind my back, and when I said No to her, and she didn’t want to accept my answer.”
Another cute planter idea from Bente Havelund. Mr. and Mrs. Garden Grove.
Robyn Ping has a whimsical face in her garden. She said it is located on her arbor. There is even a bird’s nest within the mouth. How delightful!
Jacki from Blue Fox Farm has this face in her garden. She says “The Green Man is a common motif in garden art; this one is so full of character, and the little wind chime is precious to me as it was a memento of a trip. I always look for some kind of garden themed souvenir whenever I go on a road trip.” ( Jacki also has other garden faces on her website too!)
