Ordinary to extraordinary
“We don’t even know how things will look next week,” Douglas Henderson says jokingly about the quirky art and collections that define the Hendersons’ fanciful gardens.
Doug and his wife, Barbara, both Master Gardeners, live on a heavily wooded 1-acre lot on Wisconsin’s Door County Peninsula. Under the canopy of green, hostas and other shade-loving plants blanket the land. Within this potentially dim and staid setting, they installed their singular artwork to create a color-infused wonderland.
Here, an urn of flowers towers above mosaic stepping-stones. The pedestal material? Decorated concrete septic rings. Nearby, a cut-in-half fireplace screen forms a garden gate.
