Kathy - I've gotten a lot of mileage out of your heads. It's been great fun. The flower on this echiverium has been in bloom the ENTIRE summer, and while the stem has now collapsed from our first frost, it still has flowers. I just refer to her, as "all dressed up and ready to party".

Zelda loved the idea of her picture being on the website (she's such a diva) but Thor wasn't as excited about it and said it was "girl stuff". She proceded to tell him how manly and authoritative he looked in the picture and he actually bought it! So you may put their picture on your website with our blessings.

How fortunate for this pair to have been given a place in the beautiful garden of Ann and Bill in Tigard, Oregon!

I'd like to introduce the latest headshot of "Gracie" my Garden Goddess. She watches over my garden looking quite spiffy in her summer attire and greets all my garden guests. She is a little head strong and didn't like her latest "do" 'cuz it was cut too short, but she knows all about the Miracle. The morning sun bothers her, but she has several pairs of cool shades to help ease the brightness.

Everybody loves Gracie! I think she is ahead of her time! and...

I have loved her since I first saw her! Dressing her up was a ton of fun. I will probably do something different seasonally!

Susan from Talking Rock Ga, writes:

The planter is great! I love this planter because it looks so good from all sides.....as you can see in the attached picture, I have it placed on a platform I formed from an old tree trunk that sits where several of my gardening paths intersect.....so as you walk through my garden, you can see the head planter from various perspectives (and they all look good!) It was hard to find a piece with such a nice sculptural quality and the right scale for this problem spot that looks good from all sides, but I think this worked out perfectly.

Hi Kat! I have been SO inspired by your planter combinations, and particularly your head planters! I have spent a lot of the winter browsing through threads and also browsing through my local stores and second hand shops for containers. Today is a lottle early for planting pots for me here in NE Tn but I just couldn't wait a minute longer lol. So in honor of you Kat, here is my first head planter (freshly planted today as a matter of fact). Its not uncommon to still get more freezes here and if it does happen I will just bring Caliope indoors for the night!

Thanks for all the inspiration - Susan O.

Thanks Susan!

Caliope is just beautiful! Is she made out of resin or concrete? Is that a sedum that you've planted her with?

Just great!

Caliope is resin and is planted with angelina sedum. There isn't a drainage hole so I am going to have to keep her out of the rain and only water sparingly. I was thinking I would just plop the sedum pot and all into the cavity but stupid me didn't notice that the sedum came in a square pot lol. I may just change out the sedum if I find one in a round pot.

My Gal Aggie from my office was on a trip and sent me this photo from a store in Thomasville, GA. She called it a "head sighting"! It's gorgeous but is retailing for $210.00! YIKES!
