This past weekend I enjoyed a walking tour of Jackson, NH to see how individual gardeners put together their floral interpretations of art:

It is held by the Mountain Garden Club and this year marked their 10th anniversary of the walking tour,which is their annual gift to the valley. Art In Bloom is a walking tour of eight sites in Jackson where pieces of art are interpreted through member crafted floral arrangements:

They are all so unique. I loved this simple display:

This above was named ‘Garden Party’. She even painted the picture!

Many different and unique ideas were used as art:

This display had a nice story how this picture was her first art work purchased at nine years old:

A sign I saw on my walk I thought was cute:

If you are wondering like I was, why the artist did not use poppies like in the artwork, here was the answer:

I was telling everyone that I was glad we did not have to vote for a favorite! Too many that I really liked:

Loved this one! I met the artist and she said that everything here was made from items she found in her yard and garden.

I want one of these birdhouses:

They sell these handmade birdhouses locally. Look at the details:

Totally awesome. The photographer was there and told me he walked by an alleyway in Venice and saw these three women sitting there. He asked permission to take the photo. I love it, it is so interesting to me.

  1. Oh I too love the last one! All are beautiful and like all art, some appeal to me more than others. The simple ones also draw my attention first. I think it’s because I’m a cottage gardener at heart 🙂 Thank you for sharing all these lovely displays of multi-faceted artwork.
