Blenko Glass Garden

Hillary,  Can you post photos from your family's yard?  We visited in 2001 during a Blenko event. I can't seem to find my photos.  Mary Helen Scrub
Mary Helen,   I don't have photos - however,  last year someone gave me this link to a U Tube video of my Dad's yard.   HJH

This is a garden in Charleston, WV that is decorated entirely with Blenko Glass sculptures ...

This is good but the yard is 100 times better than this video.
Blenko bird feeders, blenko hummingbird feeders, blenko stepping stones. It was so colorful and the flower selection was amazing.
My weather condition wouldn't allow for growing most of the plants, WV is warmer. Otherwise I would try to duplicate the beds.
Will your parents open the garden again? I would make the drive down. The lemonade and cookies were superior and the conversation with other Blenko and glass lovers priceless.
