Behind the Hedgerow

The clocks have gone back, the afternoons darken so early and as I write the rain is lashing against the window, Winter is on its way. Our office is filling up with all sorts of Christmas gifts and gifts for the garden. Please take a moment to click on our latest staked Wind Sculptures, the Ballerina and the Pinwheel on the Wind Sculpture page. These are two wonderful wind dancers, unique and mesmerising! They both would make a delightful Christmas gift for anyone who finds kinetic wind sculptures both fun and fascinating. I am a real fan of them, I love the way they interact with the elements. It is not just the wind but because we use stainless steel, the sun reflects and sparkles off the shiny surface, bouncing light off the ground and walls! It is beautiful!

Another product that comes into it’s own in the winter is the Rainbow Bubble which one will find on a frosty morning, has turned into a giant pearl! The way we have had the glass blown and splashed with iridescence on the crown creates a milky opalescence effect that is enchanting. It is gratifying to know that our Rainbow Bubbles, gazing balls, tealight holders are all mouth blown using 100% recycled vodka bottles!

We have many other new products for winter, a large selection of solar decoration and lights, Fun and whimsical christmas decorations made from natural, organic material,
treats for gardeners, and bathing products to soak away the cold with.

The light and the colour at this time of year have a soft muted palette, there is still gold in the trees, the berries are brightening, and many shades of green and brown surround us in Chorleywood. It is as if nature is holding her breath for but a moment before winter truly arrives.

GLEE 2010 – Our Garden Ornaments Show

This weekend we are building up our stand for the annual Garden and Leisure trade show here in the UK.Visitors to our stand will see our latest designs in Wind Sculptures,Wind Dancers, Wind Spinners, Glass Ornaments, Garden Gifts and Home Gifts! We have three new designs in our Wind Sculpture range, which look stunning, I especially love the Ballerina! It is so graceful!
We have expanded the Home Sweet Home collection of garden ornaments, which now contains whimsical, folksy designs in Wind Chimes, Plant Picks, hanging plaques and flower containers.
Creating a home to garden stand is always fun as I can bring a little enchantment and magic to the sometimes sterile atmosphere of a big hall. I usually have a pond in which to float the rainbow bubbles, and I have a tree from my local woods that will be used to hang bubbles, wind dancers, sun catchers, garden nymphs and fairies. Taken centre stage this year will be the Wind Sculptures on stakes, freestanding and hopefully mesmerizing those who pass by, with their silent, hypnotic dance on a breeze, (The breeze bit is going to a challenge since we are indoors!) That is where I am off now, to find 2 large unobtrusive fans!
Will let you know how it all goes and post a photo!
