Artful Garden Stakes to Grace Your Garden

Introduction: Artful Garden Stakes to Grace Your Garden

About: Retired, doing art work now. Great. Have the time and the money to spend doing what I want to do.

It's springtime!  Time to get the seeds and plants into the ground and start the growing season.  To help keep things in order, and help identify plants, every garden needs stakes!  I found the round "mini-gazing globes" at a garage sale, and didn't know what they were, or what I would do with them, but they were ceramic, very bright, and I liked them, so took them home, then came up with the idea of putting them on stakes in the garden.  Names of plants are simply painted with acrylic paints, and varnished over with poly-urethane.

    Lucky you! We used to live there and had orange, grapefruit, lemon, banana, and avacodo trees. I really miss those fresh tree picked oranges in the middle of the night. I love your garden idea! You have a lot of super ideas!
