A few years ago when I was at one of the local garden centers, I bought several glass and ceramic spheres which are meant to be placed on a pedestal as a "gazing globe". These are of different colors rather than the traditional silver, reflective spheres. Instead of putting them on pedestals, I arranged them on the ground.
I didn't put them out last summer, but yesterday I brought them out of the storage shed. Sometimes, when I look at them I think that they look cool. Other times I think they look silly... as if I had set a bunch of bowling balls in the garden. What do you think?
