Chistmas Gifts in the Garden

April 5th, 2010

Mr Chiots and I don’t have children, but we have 3 nieces and a nephew (my sister’s children). You’ve probably seen photos of them if you’ve been reading this blog for a while (here are some more of their Christmas photos if you’d like to see them).

For Christmas they made me mosaic stepping stones for my garden. I’ve been waiting for the weather to be nice enough to put them out. Since it looks like the hard freezes are over, I put them in the garden yesterday. One of the stones has their names on it and the other is a small flower shaped stone. Both are jeweled with colorful pieces of glass.

These will be perfect to put in the garden to give me a place to step so I don’t compact the soil. I’m not traditionally a garden ornament kind of person, but I do love these.

Do you have any decorations/ornaments in your gardens?

Reading & Watching

Shop through these links and I get a few cents each time. It's not much, but it allows me to buy a new cookbook or new gardening book every couple months. I appreciate your support!
