I usually post in the Clematis Forum, but I went to a garden show last weekend and had too much fun! Just had to share some of the stuff I got!

Plant Forum

This ball is made out of barbed wire and is about 2.5' in diameter. It was fascinating to watch this gal work with the barbed wire.

It's not for everyone but, I love it!

The ball is fab! What if anything do you intend to plant through it, round it, over it? A clematis by any chance?

Haven't decided yet, Moira. Not sure about a clematis because I don't want it to get covered up. Perhaps something low growing? Hmmm...

Hi Jeanie, Her business is called "Stray Cat Art" and they are from Altona, IL. I'm in Rockford, IL and they're about 3 hours south of me. She has a web site that's not very updated. She also said they aren't doing as many shows this year because her mother is quite ill... in fact they were going to Mayo the week after the show that I went to. Her name is Rachel Haynes and her web site is: http://www.straycatart.com

Marcia, what a great find! The bugs are really cute and I love the ball of barbed wire. Yes a clematis would probably hide it altogether but what about some of your perennials?

I live in Janesville, not too far from Rockford. Where are you located in the northwoods Denise? I'll be heading up to the Woodruff area next week - always love to head north.

Marcia,
I can't believe it. Today we were driving by Çal Ripkins home in Hunt Valley, MD, and I saw these huge balls out of wire out in his lawn. I had never seen them before and then tonight they pop up in your picture too.

How about setting the wire ball on top of an upside-down tomato cage with an integrefolia planted under it?

Have you ever seen barbed wire? She uses authentic old, rusty barbed wire. I do have to be careful where I pick it up. Time will tell what I plant with it, still haven't decided it's permanent home yet. That will help. BTW... I don't know what I was thinking because I never gave her web site. Here it is: http://www.artfromthefarm.com/

Yes, I have. That's why I asked! You are brave. Just make sure you are up on your tetanus shot.

Love your new bugs. Best kind to have, they don't bite and are so cute. Love the ball, but I'd be afraid to handle it. I think something light and airy like Flax or Coreopsis Moombeam would be nice with it.

Did you ever plant anything in or around your barbed wire ball, Marcia? I love it. I'm wondering how she got it so round- is there some kind of "non-lethal" form inside it for the wire to wrap around?
I have all kinds of twig balls & wrought iron stuff in my gardens- if the art is beautiful in itself I just nestle it in a border somewhere & let it stand on it's own. If you plant stuff on it it just takes away from the beauty of the piece.

Yes, they are. Mostly old vases, medicine bottles, "Ball" canning jars... whatever she can find. I just love'em!

No, I didn't Cory, but a volunteer Cypress vine managed to meander a bit through it and the Cleomes. I didn't see her working on these, but I did watch her working on the dragon fly I bought. She must use some kind of form because it's perfectly round. I'd always wanted a grapevine sphere so I was thrilled when I found this. Don't have to worry about it deteriorating. I love it. She makes a larger one and a smaller one as well. Next time I might get the other 2.

Many Garden tools or stuffs I used in my Garden...

The first power tool to become popular with gardeners was the lawn mower. This has been followed by a very wide range of power tools, including cultivators, string trimmer, Irrigation sprinklers, hedge trimmers, lawn aerators, leaf sweepers, leaf blowers, and mini-tractors.
