Garden Gazing Globe
Anything sparkly and colorful always attracts my eye - my husband says that it's a good thing that I'm not a trout. This gazing globe is exactly that kind of sparkly thing that I can't resist. We have always had this ugly metal block sitting in the middle of the yard (it's the well water cap - I think), so a few years ago I set out to disguise that cap. We had the stand to a bird bath (the bird bath itself had cracked years ago) and it happened to fit perfectly over the well cap. There you have it - I planted flowers around the base. The final touch was a gift from my husband - they are these wonderful solar globe lights that change color (see the last picture).
|The flowers are still young but will fill in nicely later in the season.|
|It's not exactly centered - but close enough for me.|

What a great disguise for the cap!ReplyDelete
Oh wow, that's a lovely disguise!! The flowers will be beautiful around it when they grow a bit, and the lights are so fun! How nice of your hubby!ReplyDelete
Fun! What a perfect way to keep it (fairly) accessible and turn it into something so pleasant to look at!ReplyDelete
I like it when people make-do rather then creating somethingReplyDelete
entirely new. That was a great idea for disguising an ugly
necessity. Sometimes it is good to think "outside the box"!
