Concrete Leaves: For the Modern Gardener
Garden ornaments tend to be fussy, gaudy, and just plain strange, but we found the perfect gift for the design-conscious farmer or stylish windowsill gardener in your life. Todd Carr's handcrafted concrete leaves, sold at Oak Hill's Hort and Pott, fuse botanical beauty with an urban edge. The larger leaves ($45) lend serious style to a rock garden or flower bed. The smaller ones ($25-$35) could find a home in a container garden like mine (hint, hint!) or could make a decorative indoor object for a plant lover with a black thumb.
When he isn't sculpting leaves, Todd (pictured above) also teaches wreathing workshops.
