We visited the new art museum, Crystal Bridges, in Bentonville, Arkansas twice. The first trip, we focused on the grounds and didn’t see any of the collection! From this first visit, most of my photos are of the landscaping — ideas that we might use in our yard.
We liked this bridge — particularly the steel cable along the sides. We’re considering a deck railing made with steel cable and wood.
We thought this log had something to do with controlling water run off — then we saw a mountain biker ride across it. We still think it’s a cool idea for diverting water flow. We liked the carving on top.
We liked this roof garden with a pattern created by planting each type of plant into a separate large shape. This might be a good way to plant the large section at the bottom of the yard.
This is my post for Saturday Snapshot – November 3 hosted by Alyce of At Home with Books. I’ll have more Arkansas trip photos next week.
Have you been to Northwest Arkansas? Do you know about Crystal Bridges?
