I visited the garden of Karen Deutschlander of Lancaster last summer as she was preparing for the Lancaster Garden Walk, then I showed you how she uses vignettes in her garden.

She has quite a collection of other garden art, too. On this first day of autumn, let’s take another peek at some of the art in her garden. I hope it inspires you to get creative in your garden, too. Note: Deutschlander brings in her art for the winter. Depending on what items you use in your garden, you may want to leave them out to add interest in winter, too.

Check out views of other gardens from garden walks here.

Treat your fence as if it is a wall in your living room and use it to display art. Karen’s husband Bob had the idea to display welcome mats as if they were paintings. Photo by Connie Oswald Stofko
