Speaking mason to mason, the Rock Pirate, Ricki Pierce and Frank Hyman of the Liberated Gardener. There was mention of some upcoming rock conference in Asheville I think. It didn't quite sink in.
Even the not yet used collectibles get artfully stacked.
And when the artist Damaris Pierce and the stone mason collaborate something special happens.
The gardens meld with the stone in a natural embrace creating a sense of timelessness. Sculptures dot the landscape in small vignettes.
Flowing water, gold fish, reflecting the massive oaks and the sky above.
The plants in the garden are as artfully and intentionally placed as all the other sculptural elements.
Resting. Is that really a picture on my camera? Did I see that for real?
This is my personal favorite piece in the garden. Every time I see it, she pulls me in, my mind radiates out.
I believe I have met this woman before in another setting. But here you see the house that was next to the house that it has become.
