WANTED: Four Seasons Garden Flags - Smith & Hawken

Posted by beachcottage (My Page) on

Not sure where to post to see if anyone knows where I can get this set of four seasonal garden flags that were sold by Smith & Hawken about 6-8 years ago.

There was a flag for Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. Each had different designs with nice patterns and "classy" seasonal images. Smith & Noble knows nothing about them anymore. If anyone remembers them or can give me a better description, that would help also.

Hi, I am also looking for what I believe are the same flags. The funny thing is that I saw them a couple years back on Target's website. Spring was a bird and nest, summer was the sun, fall was a big sheaf of wheat and I don't remember winter... Anyway the were all black vintage style images printed on solid colored backgrounds for each season. Is that what you're looking for too? I'm going crazy!

Sorry for the delay...I have not checked this thread in a while. I had posted on the Landscape Design forum with most people suggesting ebay or to custom make them.

I can't believe you are looking for the seasonal flags as well. Are you saying the images were all black like what would be in a coloring book? I have a hard time remembering what the flags looked like, but I think they were many colors and quite detailed as far as the images were. However, your description sounds sort of familiar. I remember the images and flag colors to be suggestive of the seasons without the stereotypical flower, sun, pumpkin and snow-scene of other seasonal flags. The wheat one sounds similar but I'm not sure about the others. The following is part of a reply that I posted on the Landscape Design forum from early May:

"The one I seem to remember is Winter. It did not have the typical snowman or christmas tree motif that most seasonal flags have. I think the colors were white, light purple and maybe a sage green. Not the usual winter flag colors, but very cool in tone and feeling. I think it had a rectangular field of harlequin pattern and some item in the middle like a family crest or something similarly shaped."

I seem to remember the Smith & Hawken ones being about $200 for the four...they might have included a nice pole and mount as well, not sure. We didn't buy them because we didn't have a place for them at the time. How much were the ones at Target? Let me know if you remember any other details.

Thanks, Don
