Sorry, got the old Libby's label commercial song stuck in my head.
Well as most of you know I am installing a display garden ... and I am somewhat detail obsessed. ( somewhat ! ha !! ) _ more like compulsive obsessive disorder on a grand garden show scale.
I need to label the plants in the garden.
I hate doing this. *!* - I know it is an excellent educational factor, but I hate the way the usual white tags muddy up the design and make it look like a yard sale!
So I could use a couple of very creative suggestions for some lovely but understated looking card name tags.
The overall look , emotion and fee of the garden is "quiet , personal, inner reflective , zen like sanctuary".
The garden room is surrounded by a tall hedge of tall whispery bamboo plants and has a few nice big fat bromeliad and succulents as accent and detail plants.
I thought about writing in black sumi ink on bamboo leaves , pasted to a bamboo stake but they kept on curling . - though I liked the bamboo stake look .
What can you guy think of that will be unique but not too big and flashy as to call attention to " hey look at all those cool plant tags".
Subtle , sophisticated, but with fine line and attention to detail.
