Wednesday Vignette – Plaque and Jonquil

This plaque came from my old garden in inner-city Sydney.

Surrounded by 100 year old bricks, render and strict Victorian-era order, it worked well there….but in this garden….not quite so well.

Except for a month in spring….I rather like how the ruffles on the Jonquil reference the details of the garden plaque…perhaps I just haven’t found the right spot for the plaque yet.

It does, however have sentimental value. It came from a parapet atop the very first house I bought which, when I sold it, was to be raised for duplexes, so I salvaged some of the old architectural details and have kept this one ever since.
