Garden Girl

Kay Polk is one of our antique dealers (there are four ladies and Wendy's husband Jerry) you probably have already met in our store. She enjoys playing golf and bridge, gardening and hunting down the best antiques for you to treasure. Her and her husband, Bobby, have an amazing garden which they have created with alot of sweat, ice tea and vintage inspiration.
Here are some pics of their garden from the Pike Co. Garden Club tour of which they are members.

It may be hard to notice in this pic but Kay and Bobby have many birdhouses, some erected upon old newell posts or fence posts.

I love Kay's koi pond! It is so relaxing to hear the water trickling into the pond and the occasional flick of tail and fins.

Iron gates and old brick foundation pieces make for interesting backdrops to showcase nature's beauties.

Does this concrete head look familiar? You can find these and many other concrete pieces on our garden path at Ms. Wendy's.

Vintage signage adds such charm to a garden.

Kay's son made this free form arbor for one of her many garden plots. Very talented!

Before you cast off old chairs, you may want to consider using them as planters as Kay has done. Just attach some chicken wire or screen to the bottom and fill with your favorite blooms.

Showcase your favorite statue in a bird bath to add height and drama.

Thank you Kay and Bobby for letting us take a stroll through your enchanting garden!
