My Mum's Ladies

As the heat of the day fell away slightly in the evening (although it was still 30 degrees at around 11pm) I finally took the stroll around my mother's garden to view all the statues she had in attendance.

She seems to have a thing for scantily clad women!

Then there is this little fairy in the bird bath

And the cherub who holds the bird bath in place.

While these are the stone cold women of the yard here is the lovely woman herself, modeling the brand new apron i made for her during my stay.

She certainly isn't stone and cold, and with that apron need never be in the same semi clad state as her garden statues! She was once an artist, long since retired and although the statues were not of her making it is wonderful to see she still embraces this old love.

I just wanted to let you know that I tried to 'pick' your post on Blotanical, but there is some 'code' that isn't working in your link there. (I think you might need to let Stuart know, that is, only if you are interested in the picks at all:)

The statues are lovely! Great selection. I wish I had a garden on ground, to fill it with props like that!

I love the statues in you mother's garden! They must look gorgeous when nestled among the plants.

Your Mum looks like a jewel. Nice job on the apron. And garden art comes in many forms. (Smile)

Ditto for me. I couldn't pick you either.
