stratford blooms-spring 2010

the pooches explore another festival.   the following are all pictures that i took while on this adventure.
and the first one (top) is actually an ice sculpture
heres what we saw


i love these guys

 we are copycats and have a dublin here.  its really small tho, barely a village, BUT  what they do have  is a huge ornamental concrete place called merv's patio and shewan's ornaments
the buddha guy above is from there.
once pooch special k and i went to a party and said we were from dublin.

the last 2 pics are gourds made into cool planters and bowls.  if you are into gourd craft, here is their website check it out
i have some gourds that i grew and pooch JP, who is a very crafty pooch, is going to help me turn them into something beautiful.

the above 2 shots are of this huge glass tube that pulsed water and different coloured lights to music
cool and unique garden feature for a party, im thinking.... 

thats it!
a long post, and a really fun event

have a bloomin' happy weekend!

  4. P. S. Thanks for stopping were wondering where I shot that picture...Bergen, Norway. I was there last June, wandering around the buildings of the Hanseatic League...they're ancient business buildings established by Germans sometime in the 1600s. Now the buildings are shops for tourists in this extremely colorful part of town.
