Oh really? These boots are made for planting! That’s what Sally Hewett planted out in her Bainbridge Island garden.
I visited the Hewett garden as part of the Garden Conservancy Garden Open Days. I believe this garden owner loves shoes! Shoes are a definite must when touring the property. I wasn’t too keen on the bits of stained glass chards strewn about. Although it looked wonderful, all I could think about that I would be hollering ouch, ooch, eech, for my poor bare footsies had I not been wearing shoes. It's my only complaint for this beautifully planted space that overlooked Puget Sound. I loved this garden.
Photos below, show a designated footpath, a shoe-way going down the side garden. The clever plantings in shoes I want to describe, using only clichés. Enjoy!
|Awww, cute little toddler shoes planted appropriately with baby tears.|
|Finally, another use for high heels: after you aerate the lawn with them, plant and forget about all foot torture devices.|
|And last but not least ,the embellished garden slippers to protect your feet from glass shards.|
