Garden Railroad tour

Here's a few photos from the garden railroad tour in Springfield a couple weeks ago. There were a few listed that were in area towns, Ozark, Mt. Vernon, Fordland, and (I can't remember where else) that I didn't go to. There was more railroad than garden but I still enjoyed going and my son thought it was great of course. Some of them used small plants to try to keep it in scale. There were some interesting little sedums and things like that.

I never knew there was such a thing as a garden railroad tour. I love the bird houses on rustic wood. I bought the bentwood trellis book, but I have never made anything. I keep thinking I will make something out of hedge because it would last.

RE: Garden Railroad tour

I love the birdhouses and the pump water fountain. I have all I need to make one, except the pump.....but haven't done it yet.

Helen, I keep thinking the same thing about the hedge saplings. I if could find some really slender ones...they would last indefinitely.

RE: Garden Railroad tour

I like the water pump. I have a small pond.

Gldno-I got my pump from Wal-Mart. You would need a high volume pump to pump that much water that is coming out of the facet. I have lights around mine and it is relaxing to sit out at night and listen to the waterfall.
