For the Garden Historian who has Almost Everything

And if like me your favorite garden historian doesn't have quite everything (but is rich, rich in friends!), then perhaps something south in price from the lovely Porter telescope is appropriate. (Disclaimer:  I have no connection to any of these purveyors, so nothing to gain)

Sundial made from recycled cups from the UK's Save-a-Cup scheme, at the gardenboutique (garden clock also available)

Handcrafted modernist birdhouses by the Austrian firm raumhochrosen, representing twentieth century buildings in their home state of Vorarlberg

Garden spheres from Los Angeles nursery Pot-ted


c. 1890 French terracotta edging tiles from thethompsonstudio

1820s oak garden gate, just £140 at salvo uk

Beautiful copper trowel (personalizable!) at implementations (also uk, but shippable)

silver spoon garden markers by buttermilkhollow at etsy (or DIY!)

c. 1715Vitruvius Britannicus garden plans from leggeprints.  This is Belton, Lincolnshire, listed at $400.

And don't forget to include a membership in the Garden History Society or the Folly Fellowship or a subscription to Historic Gardens Review...

The sundial image reminds me: there is a heliochronographics pool on flickr so I discovered recently.

I want a sphere! Reminds me very much of the birdfeeder I have, which I have a pic of in a recent post this week. Lovely.
