What is it about statuary and statuary with prominent faces? Some of us have an affinity for the serene face planters, statues and ornaments with faces which are available for garden decor. The pictures above were taken last summer. Both needed a new wardrobe for this year. This is Athena
goddess of wisdom. Here she does look quite wise! She has a head dress of Bacopa and parsley. I thought it would be good to give her some food for thought! Now here,
is Zeus , the king of the gods. He needed a purple robe for his majesty. In addition, here is the previously shown planter of the sleeping woman.
I finally decided on the Athyrium nipponicum pictum 'Ghost' fern to fill her. She looks a bit ghostly don't you think? I have this other five face planter which does need re-planting now that the pansies have given up but it is an curious planter. This one has one face with a broken nose which is facing toward the back. The customer wanted it removed so here it is!
I don't know whose faces are here but it always elicits a comment from those who see it. Then there is this lovely lady reclining on her Josephine sofa with such a classic look about her.
She begs one to sit down and enjoy the garden but, who has time for that. The 'native plants' beckon for removal!
