These Boots Are Made For Walking

Flash Back to 2010

Oh really? These boots are made for planting! That’s what Sally Hewett planted out in her Bainbridge Island garden.

Boot Planter

I visited the Hewett Garden as part of the Garden Conservancy Garden Open Days. I believe this garden owner loves shoes! Shoes are a definite must when touring the property. I wasn’t too keen on the bits of stained glass shards strewn about. Although it looked fantastic, all I could think about was that I would be hollering ouch, ooch, eech, for my poor bare feet had I not been wearing shoes. It’s my only complaint about this beautifully planted space that overlooked Puget Sound. I loved this garden.

Photos below show a designated footpath, a shoeway going down the side garden. The clever plantings in shoes I want to describe using only clichés. Enjoy!

Baby Shoe Garden
Awww, cute little toddler shoes planted appropriately with baby tears.
High Heels Garden
Finally, another use for high heels: after you aerate the lawn with them, plant and forget about all foot torture devices.

And last but not least ,the embellished garden slippers to protect your feet from glass shards.
