Wipe Your Paws

There are so many things that we use to embellish our gardens and make them uniquely our own. One of those things is to add some garden art. It could be statuary, plaques, custom stepping stones, signage, etc…

When I went to a clients this week I noticed this bear statue and it caught my fancy! When I noticed the gnome on the bottom of the bear’s paw it made me laugh – that little unexpected touch brought me a moment of delight. Bravo!

These are the things that make our gardens individual and charming.

What have you done in your garden to give it your signature?

I would love to hear about it in the comments, and feel free to include a pic.

Have a great day!

    Menard’s carries them but most are out for the season. I just bought the last one in our area at a great price but only because the gnome had escaped. Now I am on a quest to find a flattened gnome to glue on. They will probably have them again next year but that doesn’t help you now.
