Garden Decorations

A lot of garden decorations are pure kitsch... think of garden gnomes and pink flamingos... but during my visits to garden centers this spring I found a number of items that I liked and bought.

This ceramic globe is supposed to be placed on a pedestal... a la gazing globes of Victorian gardens... but I find it interesting simply placed on the ground.  I have a couple other globes which I bought in previous years and which are strategically placed in the garden.

Today I found this interesting item created by a local artisan.  A piece of granite is sculpted to resemble an owl.

I also found today this garden plaque.  I definitely concur with its message.


  1. I think the globes are a nice touch - I love sculpture art in gardens. My current yard only grows weeds and dog poop.

    1. Thanks, Scott. At first I had the globes all together. But I thought they looked too much like a bunch of bowling balls, so I put each one in a different area of the garden.
