LAMPSHADES + LANDSCAPES

You've got to adore a woman who eyes a lamp, a regular everyday lamp, and thinks, I'll put that in my garden. Lamps happen to be another fetish of mine. Susanne Hudson's too, above.
.
Under a tree and near a pond this lamp is on 24/7 and has been for years.
.
The little glass jar? Fish food.
.
Notice the clay saucer atop the silk lampshade? A practical detail.
.
The fence? Susanne scoured books for which style to choose for her, over 100 year-old, home.
.
Another BIG THING in this tiny little nothing of a garden pic?
.
SUSANNE'S COLORS: green, brown, white.
.
Throughout the landscape Susanne only uses green, brown & white.
.
Tiny garden picture with lots to teach.

I have two lamps out on my deck. Since it isn't covered, I use outdoor lamps. But I'd love to figure out how she worked that lamp, which does not to me look like the "outdoor" lamps I've seen when shopping anywhere.

Nifty but.... I have a naughty shih tzu x and he would have the whole lot on the ground broken!
I like her restrained colour rule.
