Plants and Sculpture at the San Diego Botanic Garden

Plants and art – two things dearly loved here at Garden Gluttony!   The beautiful San Diego Botanic Garden  is not only home to plants from all over the world, but it also showcases a diversity of sculpture from local artists throughout the gardens.  It’s a great mix of both.  I showed you the Bamboo Grove, our nation’s largest collection, in a previous post and now you will see some of the sculpture as well as plants from the part of the garden the pieces are in.  Let the art walk begin!

There are many more pieces than these shown above but my little point and shoot gave up the ghost at this garden – a camera gone to digital heaven!    Can you imagine any of these in your garden?   Lucky for you they are all for sale.  Just click here and you can see more and pick out your favorite.

Two big green thumbs up for plants and art!
