Very nice! I agree - a great finishing touch and "bit of useful visual tension" - well said.

Thanks, Lecia! And thanks for your nice post on International Women's Day ... can't believe I forgot it!

You have a Lecia, above, and now you have a Lucia commenter. I have so enjoyed reading about your garden(s). As a native Wisconsonian transplanted to NYC, there is even more for me to love about your blog than a denizen from another state. Wow -- I love your apple half hoops. Can you explain (but not in painstaking detail) how you constructed your peg and wood hoop shaper. I'm going to copy you! They do make nice winter interest, but to paraphrase the New Yorker (I believe) I say winter interest -- and I say the hell with it! C'mon -- when is spring going to arrive?

Lucia — I've hit the "hell with it" stage, too. Since Sunday we've had, rain, freezing rain, snow, high winds, and way below normal temps! I just want the snow to be gone and there to be some green that's not a pine tree.

I'm going to have my husband email you some simple directions since he made the hoop form.

Great idea. Materials from your own garden are the best possible edging. I'm using stone chunks found at the back of our new garden, presumably broken up when the pool was installed. However, I'm also finding chunks of concrete mixed in, which makes me think they broke up a mortared patio or path somewhere along the way.

We had lots of broken concrete at the first garden and a whole wall of it here — which is still in place for a few more years until we get around to re-doing that area of the garden. There's always something that presents ideas for reuse!

A great idea. Tying them together not only makes them look neat and purposeful but probably makes them last longer too.
