The first garden of the Garden Blogger's Fling tour was exciting. I knew when I walked up to the entrance of this garden that it was going to be something special. The creators, artist Damaris Pierce and Rock Pirate Ricki Pierce, of this garden are sensationally present in all the details.
The details are unique. You can see their hand everywhere.
There are houses for Elves,
water side accomodations for fairies.
It was such an inviting space. Even the fish were welcoming.
The paths drew you up
and through the garden.
and gathering in groups.
If you have a chain link fence they can teach you how to make it disappear.
Then there are the details...
within the details.
I haven't mentioned the plantings in the garden. Obviously I was taken by the stone work and art work in the garden. There was a palette of plantings to ensure that any plant geek would be thrilled to stroll through this fascinating place.
If you are ever in Asheville you would want to call them for an appointment to see
this haven of horticulture and creative energy.
I want to thank Damarius and Ricki Pierce for allowing our group to wander through their garden on the side of the mountain in Asheville TN.
