January Dream

“Anyone who thinks gardening begins in the spring and ends in the fall is missing the best part of the whole year; for gardening begins in January with a dream.” ~ Josephine Nuese

We shared this quote a while back on our Pinterest and Facebook but some how it escaped the blog. While January is behind us (thank goodness) we still have a ways to go in the Midwest before we see thawing and blooming. That doesn’t mean a girl can’t dream, right? What garden style do you dream of?

Cento Urn On 6' Pool Fountain

Cento Urn On 6′ Pool Fountain

My dream style is one that mixes the deep South (think Charleston and Savannah) with the formality of English gardens. I love the idea of mixing the Massarelli’s  Carnelian Mountain finish Cento Urn with the pop of bright colors from azaleas and roses. I can almost hear the fountain flowing now.

Unfortunately, Spanish moss does not fair well with our deep freezes but I do love the evergreen look of Spanish Moss providing a romantic backdrop.

Dancing Girl of the Wind Bronze Garden Statue

Of course my dream garden would not be complete without statuary. The Dancing Girl statue gives my dream garden the formality of the English Garden… despite her free spirit.

My grandmother use to line walkways of her garden with mint, rosemary, lavender and various other herbs. Her beautiful logic was that when one passed through it would create a fragrant journey.  I hope to do the same this year when the frost subsides.

I am also looking forward to the chirping of our winged friends. No perfect garden is complete without a birdbath and birdhouse.

What does your dream garden include? What are you dreaming about the most in your garden? We would love to help you make your dream garden a reality!

Astor Fountain 36.5″ High

Garden fountains were first used in the Middle East. Drawings can be seen on the walls of ancient Egyptian tombs showing garden fountains in the courtyards of homes. They were usually depicted as being rectangular and lined by trees. Water and the shade of the trees provided a cooling escape from the hot sun. Originally fountains were purely functional, mainly being connected to springs or aqueducts they provided a source for drinking water and water for bathing or washing. Later they were used as decoration or to celebrate their builders.

As bathing rituals were important to the Romans, public baths were often found in gardens with fountains. In the Middle East where deserts were abundant, pools and fountains provided great relief from the heat.

Ancient Greeks were apparently the first to use gravity and aqueducts to power fountains to distribute water. This technology was later adopted by others to create more fountains per area and higher jets. The amount of aqueducts used and the distance and height from which the water travelled determined what kind of fountain or pool was created.

In Spain similar garden pools and fountains were seen to have been built as early as the 15th century and in India they began building them in the 17th and 18th century.

By the late 18th century, gardens often were designed to look more natural with rivers and ponds haphazardly placed amongst trees and shrubs.

By the 20th century as indoor plumbing became the main source for drinking water fountains became purely decorative.  As the love of nature continued, architects would incorporate fountains into the homes or gardens decor.  Indoor fountains and pools were often found appearing in malls, offices and homes.

Fountains are used today to decorate city parks and squares; to commemorate individuals or events; for recreation and entertainment.
