There are about 8 different English herbs and plants, including the adorable topiary, in the planter.
This adorable 400-pound planter is another find from the auction. It is seriously 400+ pounds. It took Edgar and 2 guys to load it in to the poor Lexus(RX300s were never meant for this...) and Ed almost mashed himself in the face taking it out BY HIMSELF!! (I tried to hold the dolly but that didnt' go so well.) It is really English-esque and so sweet with the little topiary. It was supposed to sit on the courtyard wall in my efforts to make it private (any ideas on how to achieve this??) but it was too heavy and there were concerns the wall would be compromised, particularly during an earthquake. Cost of this piece, $150.00 !! I said the prices were incredible!
The planter is residing by a wall in the front of the house. Sadly it is far too heavy to be placed on the small courtyard wall.
Close up of the little bird in the planter. It is also very old and heavy. This little thing must weigh about 40 pounds.
Close up of the stone planter. It is so well designed and HEAVY!
