New Spring Garden Decor

Yesterday I received some things I ordered for my yard. This one here is a wind chime. I really like it, but because it would be so fragile, at this point I dont know where I want to put it. Well, actually I do know where--but I picture little fingers picking it up and splat.....broke on the cement. Thats why I keep tellin Baldyman I need a porch!
This little girl is my favorite so far. Its a solar light piece so the lights will shine on her at night. Its a little girl reading and I think it depicts so much of what should be for many of us...finding a quiet warm place to take in a good book!
And I leave you with this, my crocus is about to bloom! Now I planted enough crocus to fill in this spot but of course my planting is similar to my house decorating and probably only about 10 crocus if I"m lucky will come in each Spring. I"m happy with one!

We are off to a Home and Garden Show today, to get some ideas and hopefully even some more neat things for the yard. I hope everyone has a great weekend!

I used to really be into gardening and I had raised beds to make it easier...with the house we are in now, the dirt is like concrete and it kills my back bending over, so I don't do as much anymore. I like your decorations.
I hope you have a great weekend.

How I love the windchime! I have lots of them and can just sit and listen to them all day long! They just relax my soul....
The solar one is precious too. Would love to see a picture of it when it is lit up! Have loads of fun at the Home 7 garden show. Can't wait to hear about it. Plus see what all you bought! Enjoy this first day of spring!

Dawnie,
I love that little girl reading with the light. I bet that will look wonderful and I agree porches are wonderful. Have a fun time at the Home and Garden show and I want to see your crocus when they bloom. Are you sure your in Wisconsin (lol) I still have a bit of snow in my yard. Cindy
