Concrete Creations

That's the name of a store in Virginia Beach that sells, yup, concrete statuary.  That along with a few other hardscape items for the garden.  I love this store because I love concrete "stuff" for my garden and I love their reasonable prices. 

I especially love my seashell planters that sit on top of a short brick wall in the corner next to the driveway.  They give me a chance to add color to that spot every year and they help provide a bit extra privacy.

I just stopped into Concrete Creations last week to replace a small conch shell planter that had been stolen (those bastards!) from my yard.  They are offering some new paint colors that I absolutely love!  Pink, aqua, lilac, and orange. 

I got the replacement conch shell planter in aqua.

I have always loved the seahorse bird baths that have been around forever.  They offer them in 3 sizes and I picked out the medium size to use more as a plant stand in the garden.  In yellow!

I'm throwin' in this picture of one of the concrete hosta leaves that my mother makes just because I love them.

I mulched the entire yard this past weekend, that was about 7 yards of mulch that I spread.  So I will have some lovely garden shots soon.  The hostas are really starting to pop up.

  3. You have got some beautiful containers for your garden. Are they concrete or hyper-tufas? Hyper tufas are lighter because concrete is mixed with perlite and/or paper. I have one posted on my blog that a girl makes here in Connecticut. I gave one to my Mom also Thanks for sharing. I love that stuff, too. I have lots of garden ornamentation. 🙂
