Many of us have placed urns in our gardens, like this one at Sissinghurst, without giving much thought to their history or why they became popular as garden ornaments. For you lovers of garden history, check out this post on “The Ornamental Urn” in Barbara Wells Sarudy’s wonderful Early American Gardens blog. And, to learn more about Sibylle Kreutzberger, who was the head gardener at Sissinghurst for more than thirty years, check out this post from Notes from Juniper Hill archives.
Happy Friday! Have a great weekend!
