Savannah. Charleston. New Orleans. San Antonio. These colonial-era cities inspire the courtyard garden ideal: green and lush, with beautiful plants, pools and fountains, paved with stone, tiles or bricks, & protected by sheltering walls with gates that reveal a table and chairs for cocktails or an al fresco meal...

Terra Cotta Rosary

Here, a gardener used a Terra Cotta rosary from Mexico to adorn an aquamarine colored urn in a shady corner of the garden. These may be found at Mexican markets, for example El Mercado in downtown San Antonio. Two may be combined and restrung on weather resistant cording to provide the length desired. They may be hung from tree limbs, wrought iron fences, and even used as necklaces on statues and fountains.
