Kia hora te manno
Kia whakapapa paumamu te moana
Kia tere te Karohirohi

May the calm be widespread
May the sea glisten like the greenstone
And may the glimmer of summer dance across your pathways

My little bit of whimsy

I am a sucker for yard art which I usually find at yard sales. This wee spot of garden is filled with all manner of "yard art"

There is a goose, and half a broken clay pot adding a little interest.

The lovely glass bird bath Mr C gave me for Christmas, takes pride of place.

Found three flower shaped stepping stones at a yard sale, but thought them too unstable to use as such, so they are for decoration only.

And this cute hedgehog was a bargain I found at a end of year sale at one of the large chain stores.
So there you have it, a little bit of my um! yard art, and there is plenty more of it scattered throughout the other garden areas.

I love art in the garden. It just looks better and I don't have to dust it if it's outside. (((grin)))

That hedgehog is adorable.


p.s.
You have much better self-control than I do with chocolate.

Jan@Thanks for today. said...

I love your glass birdbath;-) The flower stepping stones look nice just as accents, although if you dug down slightly and placed them at ground level, perhaps you could walk on them? Such a cute hedgehog, too;-) I love yard art, as well. Each garden area just HAS to have at least one but preferably several whimsical pieces!
