Arte y jardines de México

I was in Mexico last week on vacation and enjoying visiting a few gardens, markets, a garden art store, and even a garden center. There were great meals & margaritas too, but this isn’t a blog about them. We were staying with friends about 40 miles north of Puerto Vallarta, on the Pacific coast. Here is some random Mexican loveliness from our wandering. I’ll post more about the gardens & visits later in the week.

Those parasite plants will grow anywhere. This is a variegated philodendron.
We took a hike through the forest. No Tarzan sightings.
Great use of Mother-in-law’s tongue (Sansevieria) and coordinated house color.
A rock stacker practicing his craft in front of a crowd on the beach in Puerto Vallarta.

Pinhead/stapleface at an artist’s market.
Loved the exuberance of this name/marker.
Our Lady of Guadalupe appearing on a cookie sheet.
A shrine was set up in the cookie sheet’s honor for all to enjoy.

I have a long-time garden blog, a popular garden on America's largest garden tour, and have co-written a book on garden design titled, "Buffalo-Style Gardens: Create a Quirky, One-of-a-Kind Private Garden with Eye-Catching Designs" When I'm not doing all that, I am an advertising designer always out looking to design things to promote your business. Look me up at #jcharlier.

  1. I think the rock stacking must take a lot of practice (picture of the beach) I'd be afraid of them falling over on my toes.
