Garden Ornaments

In spite of the cool weather we had last week it is very encouraging to see so much promise in the garden as things are coming to life again.I get excited to think of the difference a few short weeks will make in our garden- especially as the weather man promises warmer temperatures this week. We have done a little yard clean up as the snow has finally melted off most of our lawn and flower beds. It feels so good to be back out inthe garden!
Today I am sharing some pictures I have taken in the last couple of years of some of the ornaments in our garden. I think some ornaments tucked in the garden add interest and romance .
I hope you have a good day!
Carolyn

I seem to be very behind on your posts, my dashboard is not showing up that you have posted new, and so I am missing some lovely things! Have a good day. Debby

I just wanted to let you know how much I love looking at your beautiful pictures of your gardens. They are truly breathtaking. I wish I could visit you to see the garden in person. The pictures are beautiful but they can never really show the true beauty of the flowers. I just become messmerized when I see a flower closeup. Thank you for sharing your beauty. It makes me want to go out there and get busy, you are such an inspiration to me.

Your garden just amazes me more every time I visit. It is so lovely. I love all your garden statues, arbors, amd fountains. I love what they do for a garden. I have a few statues, but Hubs frowns every time I bring one home, beacause they have to be put away in the shed each fall. Because of our temps sometimes dipping as low as -20, the concrete does not hold up well here.
Hugs from here, June

I love, love, love your blog. I'm always interested in your posts whether it's about tea, home decor, family, or garden. We're kindred spirits. I was thrilled when I saw you posted pictures of some of your garden ornaments; each one is beautiful. I've always wondered how many you actually have in your garden. Do you bring them in in the winter? I see some are cement; what are the others made of. I ask, because I'm interested in buying the ones with a long life:-) I only have a few small pieces, but I store them in the winter; I don't have much storage space. I have one birdbath and one bench made of cement; I leave them out.

Thank you for sharing your garden and home with us--it's all so inspiring.

Your blog is my oasis.

It's been raining and dreary for so many days that I fear the sun may never peek it's lovely face out again.

Your gardens are my most favorite place in all of blog-world. Cheerful, beautiful, welcoming, a treasure.

Oh Carolyn, I wish I had a garden. I rent so it is not possible to have what you have. I did have a place at one time of our own, and I can assure you, it was starting to look beautiful.- With all the assorted plants, perennials, etc, how could you not make something Grand out of what God has given us. The main thing about gardening is watching everything mature into a fullness of beauty.. I know you have put a lot of work into yours, and it shows. Just LOVELY!

Dear Carolyn,

Your garden ornaments are wonderful and more important is your choice in locating them in your garden, I find that part difficult. I only have a couple but hope to invest in more on an on-going basis. I would love to see a more wide-angle of the lady with the container with the mirror background. I would love to see a more overall look of that. What I see looks fabulous..
