Inspirational Stakes Make Any Garden a Zen Garden

It is always a good idea to use markers to help you remember which plants inhabit the various spaces in your garden, but these inspirational stakes take matters a step further, helping to sow a little zen in even the most riotous outdoor space. Though you may need to key each message to a particular plant, who wouldn't want to label their daises as "happy" or their daffodils as "joy"?

These handmade Inspirational Stakes are cut from slabs of stoneware, stamped, glazed and fired to cone 6 in oxidation. They are sold in sets of three; you can choose from any of 30+ suggested messages, or even customize your own. The soft colors will blend into any garden without getting lost in the undergrowth. The stakes are approx. 9.25''H x 2"W at the widest point, and the set of three is $20 plus S&H. Artisan Hands also offers similarly finished stakes in more traditional vegetable and herb varieties.
