Gardening, for me, is about the details. A garden with nothing but plants can be a little uninteresting. But bring in some rocks, some wood rounds, a bird bath, different colored foliage or different shapes, and it changes the whole perspective. Like this little house. Weathered. Broken. But it has its place on this broken piece of pallet. It's proud! It's interesting! It has a place in this world!
Next to it is a planter box, practically rotten, but it still held dirt. So what better way to honor this little shadowbox of a garden, then to plant some curry. It's a lovely addition to the compost area. I love this little picture.
