Garden Decor

December 15th, 2008

I always put a few things out in the garden during the winter to brighten it up since there aren’t any more flowers. I have a few metal birds that go out by a birdbath right by the back door. I really like the way they look when there’s snow on the ground, they’re very cheery. They make me smile every time I come and go.

Anyone else decorate their gardens during the dull winter months? With what?

    We have a cartoonish pink flamingo that goes into the garden once the snow begins to fall. Whenever we see it the reminder that spring will return soon enough is with us.
