Our friend found these lush, vegetation-covered furniture at a county fair &mdash they're a great take on garden furniture. It's furniture that's literally a part of the garden.
Garden expert Debra Prinzing found them at a fair in California, and they were planted with succulents (which grow well in southern California). If you wanted to do them in your own backyard in the Mid-Atlantic region, she recommends that you use a spreading evergreen plant, such as a fern or a moss. We think they would be great for a whimsical garden of a furniture lover.
Looking at them at least gives us a last look at the beauty of summer before we head into autumn. What do you think?
