May 24


I got this pretty glass ball and hook for Mother's Day from my daughters and son-in-law. We were looking for a good place to put it, and decided this little bed, next to our flag pole looked just right!
I love the detail in the hook, and there are colors swirled in the ball although they don't show up well in the picture.
Thanks Laura, Aaron and Heather - I love it!

Gorgeous, Mari? I love that kind of stuff - I have a gazing ball in my yard.

What keeps the ball from swinging or sliding on the hook?

PS My son has a strained and swollen hamstring - no frisbee for a few days for him.

What a beautiful pastoral scene you have! It's just gorgeous. Everything just looks perfect. I am envious. I'm having trouble to get grass to grow through dead stuff!

Lovely garden Mari. I would love a bigger one, but then I would have to weed even more than I already do! And you know, I am all about garden ornaments, especially pretty glass ones.

Perfect place for the ornament.

Your winding "hosta trail" is great! It looks like your yard keeps you busy since it's so beautifully maintained.

That's beautiful in your garden. The color of the glass ball goes so well with the grass. What a pretty yard, too. I love the curves and the texture of the plants. Very nice!

I've been looking/longing for a few of those in my garden. I just {{love}} how they add character to nature.

Your yard looks like a park and the gazing ball and hook look wonderful where you placed it.

Personally I am a big fan of cool yard art.

I love the decorative ball and I am so glad that they bought green. It is perfect for you walk.

I am hooked on hosta too! I love yours under the big trees and along the walk. They show up nicely on your new mulch. It is very, very lovely!
