White Flower Peacock

White Petunias
Cascading Down a Vintage Tiered Metal Plant Stand


I began with this (those look like flamingo legs...)




and painted him the colors of a real peacock I visit 


Here's how he looked when I first planted the Petunias

I found the rusted plant stand on Craigs list and the containers are from a dollar store




and this is him now




When I began this project, this is how I pictured it looking.
{I admit to increasing the flowers in Photoshop}



June flew by!
We moved!  And are selling our 3 year old house we built,
and bought a 30 year old home with more space for gardening.

I will share more in my next blog post,
which won't be so long in coming!

Your Petunia Peacock is stunning. I have seen pure white peacocks in Charleston at a beautiful historical plantation. How exciting that you have moved and will be sharing your spaces with us. Safe and Happy Fourth...

My dear one! HELLO and good morning! I can see your visionary mind here....but I never would have thought of that tiered planter to be the cascading feathers of a peacock. WELL DONE, WELL DONE! And you must tell me how to "increase" in Photoshop....you really found a winner here, and the peacock lends itself to this very composition. He long legs really add to the necessary placement for this to work! Bravo.

And next post, more of the new house? YAHOOOOO!

Sending you love and wishes for a wonderful fourth! See you in email!
