The Portland Garden of Lucy Hardiman





  1. Yes, the mosaic was made by Jeffrey Bale. He also did the mosaic work at Nancyland (Nancy Goldman’s garden) another GWA garden.

    Did you make it there, Susan? Even though our paths crossed several times that day, I don’t think we were quite on the same bus schedule. I didn’t get to Nancy’s but since I had visited Nancyland recently, ditto for Darcy Daniel’s garden, I took extra time in the other gardens.

    Lucy has been adding the dried Allium seed heads to that spot in her garden for as long as I can remember; painting them is a relatively new, very cool twist.

  2. THANK YOU for posting. My camera batteries BOTH took this part of day off and I so wanted to share how FUN this garden was. Now I can.

  3. The garden has way too many knick knacks for my taste. I mean stuff like the glass balls.

    But most of the landscape decorations look nice.

    It’s nice that there are people who really enjoy gardens like this. With all the rank and file landscapes in the suburbs, it’s nice to have some inspiring gardens owned by people who understand what they are growing.

  4. Hi, Jeffrey Bale here. We built Lucy’s Flying carpet pebble mosaics in 2002 and 3. My best work is mostly out of town these days, which is a shame because Portland is my favorite place to work. So save your pennies for pebbles and commission a beautiful mosaic in your garden!
