summer is finally here and my small deck is very green. this is not on purpose, it gets very little direct sunlight and years of failed gardening have taught me to rely on 2 staples: ferns and hostas. i have them in about every variety imaginable.
i am not against garden tchotchkes at all, especially not when animal themed. i got this cast iron owl at brimfield a few years ago. he's actually a votive holder. his little claws are adorable.
a newer favorite is this little bronze squirrel, bought at a yard sale.
"fat jay" was picked up for 50 cents at a fundraiser for the BVFA (block island volunteers for animals). i have no idea what he is made from, some sort of resin? but i love his design, especially from behind.
