I love ferns -- all different kind of ferns and once we had the breakfast room with great quantities of light, ferns seemed easier to grow.
This isn't really a log but a faux bois piece. I love faux bois and the French seem to do it so well. This is a planter but we also have a bird feeder in the garden. The faux bois that I truly covet is a concrete table. Alas, they are pricey and I'm afraid that there will never be one in the garden at Linderhof.
Faux bois is French for false wood and that are what faux bois pieces are -- it looks like wood but it isn't wood! Like my new planter which appears to be a log.
A table in the breakfast room is the perfect place for my faux bois planter filled with ferns, ivy, a begonia.
To keep all the greenery company, a perky little bird that looks like a wren. That looks a lot like the Carolina wrens that decided to visit the inside of Linderhof last fall! I guess if the planter is "faux bois", then the wren is a "faux bird"!
The planter, ferns and bird bring a bit of whimsy to the breakfast room.
