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.
