Garden Tour Finale

When I visited the Rockcastle River Trading Company which is an hour’s drive away from Lexington, I didn’t realize that I would get enough photos to share in three posts.  This will wrap it up, though, with these random shots I had to share.  Previous posts are here and here.

For instance, I showed you this tool shed, but I didn’t tell you that it sits beside the vegetable garden.

The garden is divided down the middle with pebbles that have round rock discs in them.

Several trellises support the pole beans.

Flowers grew among the vegetables and ……

This is a view of the main house that I didn’t show you last week.  I love this angle.

Little ceramic bird houses like this were tucked into trees all over the property.  Jon designed them, and they were made by Louisville Stoneware.

The shop sells a good selection of his bird houses.

I thought this was really unusual.  The guest house had a door knocker made out of a little hand-held garden shovel.

This little area is perfect for roasting marshmallows and singing camp songs.  It reminded me of 4-H camp when I was growing up.

Instead of putting birds in this cage, Jon added wonderful succulents surrounded by moss and one lone peacock feather.  The plants were enjoying the rain when I was there.

 

Rockcastle River Trading Company is located about two miles off of Interstate 75 at exit 49 on Highway 25.  If you are ever traveling  this north/south interstate, be sure to take the time to stop in and see all the goodness the shop has to offer.

Take care.
