Garden Cloches

Williamsburg, Virginia is a great place to get gardening and decorating ideas and inspiration. On a recent visit, I saw these garden cloches and fell in love with the idea of glass in the garden. A cloche is a bell-shaped glass cover placed over a plant to protect it from the frost. When not in use, it doubles as a piece of art for the garden, as the sun bounces off the surface and creates great plays of shadow and light. I especially like the old green glass ones. They were selling reproductions in the gift shop, but they were a little out of my price range, so I'll have to come up with a DIY way to make my own.
