    Hey, marlingardener, I must say all the photos you have uploaded defines your ideas as a gardener. All the sculptures, and amounts are placed correctly and are given a fancy look to the garden area. Along with sculptures, Ammonites, Concrete paver path in between shrubs and trees will make your garden look even more beautiful.

    I have a few ornaments here & there that I use as focal points among the plants. I tend to be a less is more kind of person......except when it comes to plants! I really need to learn to restrain myself.

    Thank you, Kevin. Our gardens are pretty big, so we do have pavers or bricks as paths through them, and so I can tend the plants. Would you believe there were two pallets of bricks in front of the barn when we moved here? They've all been used up, either as paths or edgings.
    Cayuga, restraint doesn't work. Believe me, I know! Everyone deserves a small vice, and ours seems to be plant acquisition!

    I love what you have done, I have always admired everything you collected but having cement things as you get older have to be left out and the weather does a number on them. We usually put all of our garden art away every winter and since we moved, we have less space to keep things...
