An Artist’s Garden Containers – Bagicha Bazaar



Today’s photos are of Julian, sharing the beautiful garden created by his mother, Tina Iowska. We have been lucky enough to visit this beautiful garden before: The Secret Garden.

This is another beautiful garden from my parent’s house this year. My mother is an absolutely wonderful artist, and everything she touches turns into beauty. It is his biggest work till date. Its container gardening is wonderful, because it doesn’t have a lot of landscape space to plant. She lives in Coatesville, Pennsylvania. She is an antiques dealer. His house was built in 1740.

She loves topiaries and plants them with a variety of whimsical flowers.

These pictures are from his visit to the garden.

Diverse container plantings with bright pink flowers and foliage plantsEach container is different—some are filled with flowers, others are simple studies of green and textured shades. Variety makes this display look vibrant and exciting.
