Wind chasers, birdbaths, toadstools, tortoises, ladybugs, garden gnomes… Each time I see one, I’d try to envision how it’d look in the garden.
I’d look for them at garden centres, flea markets and car boot sales. I’d bargain and plead.
I’ve lugged home ornaments from abroad that take up almost half my luggage space, and would hand-carry the fragile ones. I’d rather toss out my clothes or chocolates than sacrifice the garden ornament.
The lengths I’d go through …
But butterfingers has been known to carry an ornament all the way home without incident, only to chip it as soon it’s unpacked.
I should stop getting any more; especially since the latest ornament to catch my attention is a life-like lamb. Sounds crazy … especially since it’s life-sized too.
And it’s not cheap either. Now I’d really, really have to be crazy or desperate to buy that.
