    This thread is for exchanging ideas / sharing pictures of your garden decorations, either store bought or do-it-yourself that offer nice, unique or [insert your adjective here] additions to your garden.

    * Don't forget to include a source where necessary [​IMG]


    I'm going to add some stock photos I found online to jump start the party (until the weather clears up & I can add pics from my backyard)

    I love dragonflies. My husband takes away my creditcard when we go to Atwoods because they have the greatest dragonfly garden decorations ever. Unfortunately, they're too out of my budget. I would love some ideas on homemade decorations.

    I love garden decorations, but so far don't have anything, other than a big Chinese Foo dog statue.... but he's not currently in the garden. Have to find the right spot here and then I'll post a photo. I love dragonflies too, and always think birdbaths look so pretty with the garden. Right now, my garden is just 8 4'x4' boxes, 6 painted barn red (my coop matches). The other two are awaiting their paint job.

    A windchime I made using a drain catcher, nylon string/ thread, some beads, and a random metal pipe (cut to different lengths) [​IMG]
    Since the pipe pieces are kind of heavy, it has to be really windy for it to move. heh. well, at least it looks nice hanging from a tree.

    (Also, to explain the background, we recently had a cold snap in S Florida & had to cover our trees.) [​IMG]
