Look! The Saucers Have Landed

Look! The Saucers Have Landed

Venice has some pretty spectacular gardens, but these elevated planters are a first for me. A newly landscaped house had these 3 saucers planted in the front yard this morning. A cross between ufo's and elongated mod sculpture, each saucer has drought tolerant plants packed inside with the whole thing resting on an iron base.

The house hasn't been 'done' yet, so these really look swanky by comparison. What do you think? These make me think more of public art than private, mainly because of the scale. Would you do this in your front yard?
