Show and Tell

I love garden art! Since I have several garden areas, I have different "themes" in the areas. Some are very rustic and some more formal. One consistency in my gardens is angels.
These first 3 are in an area seen from the front of my house in a more confined garden area.
This angel is iron and only about 6 inches tall. I just got her this year.
This one is in the shade garden at the back of my yard.
I love this cherub. It is in the day lily garden.
This is an area by my shed that is mostly bushes. She is in front of my hydrangea. Lastly, my country angel. It's hard to see in the picture but she has chicken wire wings. This garden is on the house side of the steps to my beauty shop.
I love all kinds of conventional and unconventional (as in my "kitchen"garden) garden art. To me garden art is like the small touches you add to your home to make it yours.

Jean, I love the look of your blog-so pretty! And of course the butterfly is wonderful! I really like your angels and cherubs. My theme is dragonflies(can you tell:}).

Jean, I, too, was hesitant about the side effects of the Lyrica, but decided it was worth a try as I was so miserable. Within 3 days I could tell it was working and noticed no problems at all. It is expensive, but as my husband says it is money well spent if it improves the quality of my life. If you do decide to try it, go with a small dose(50 mg) once a day to start. Then you can increase it gradually. I take 50mg twice a day now and could go up to four times as much if needed. In the end, it is your decision, but I think the side effects are pretty rare. Good luck!

I particularly loved the first one! Angels are always special to collect. I'm always wanting one, but havent found just the right one yet.
