Y is for Yard Art








































Keep it easy,
Or make it hard?
Would you go sleazy?  
Your art ~ your yard?

  1. Not a fan of the squatting gnome :P I dunno, toilet humour seems to be a weak spot in my appreciation of comedy :P

  2. I had a friend with four brothers that were all in the military. Two were professional army men that served multiple tours in the middle east. I bought her an "army gnome" for her yard and she LOVED it :) I don't know why, but I am a big fan of the garden gnome. Even though, I don't own any myself!

    1. Hi Clarabelle. I don't have any garden gnomes but I think they're cute. I'd love to have a Minion!! My yard is a beach theme - lots of shells and colorful metal fish.

      I added you to my reading list. Love your blog!!

  10. We have a landscaped front yard instead of grass. The only pieces of art are an old pump and a trio of owls :)

  11. Beautiful and funny . . . I don't think I've ever seen that gnome statue before! :)

    I just have a few pieces of yard art - stepping stones with my daughters' hand prints, and a solar powered blue globe that reminds me of some kind of royal scepter (my mom gave it to me).

    1. And now you've seen probably more gnome than you wanted to (smile).

      I love stepping stones. I use broken pieces of dishes. I would love to see your solar powered blue globe!

  12. Gnome's bums? Cute, I dare say but I don't think I'd put him in my garden.

    One last day! I hope you enjoyed the challenge as much as I have.

    1. Hi 'Daft'. I had a blast! Checked out your blog: am following; I intend to get back over there... you've got some great music too (smile).

  13. Dixie, such a cute little elf. It never hurts to add a bit of levity to one's garden or yard. I would stop before pink flamingos, however. Maybe a bit of Chihuly glass?

    1. Linda Kay - there's a house down the road where they have about 20-25 flamingos - it's scary.

  14. Our garden frequently features human buttocks- mostly it's the grandchildren. Loving garden art- got a line of projects to get on with this summer. Including accessorising the scarecrow, but she'll be keeping her trousers up :-)
