Obelisks in the garden

Obelisks look fabulous in the garden. Think stone or metal. They provide a focal point or a grand entrance.

In this London garden, the garden designer Xa Tollemache placed an obelisk in a niche to draw the eye across the garden.

In a Hollywood home, the designer Timothy Corrigan uses a pair of massive stone obelisks to create a grand entry. 

One of my favorite obelisks 'in the garden' is Cleopatra's needle in New York's Central Park. They knew a long time ago that obelisks make great garden decoration!
