Flo and Mingo Garden
I love yard art. These metal flamingos were rescued from a discard pile and restored by Darick Jarvis. Mingo’s legs and stand were rewelded. Flo’s legs were beyond help and had to be amputated. She now sits on a nest. They are surrounded by Encore azaleas, daffodils, ferns, and hellebores. Sweet shrub forms the backdrop.

This is one of the few grasses that will tolerate part shade. I have used it in many areas of my garden because of its height and texture.
