Tried and True Traditions
We both love garden sculptures. If we had a larger garden, we would undoubtable have more. But, especially in a smaller garden, less is best. So, in addition to the fountain with cherub (see http://www.carolsfaeriegardens.com/flower-filled-fountains), we have contented ourselves with the Savannah Bird Girl statue which is in the front yard, and the little cherubs fountain planter in the back yard. The large statue is concrete so needless to say, she is one of the few lawn ornaments that have not been moved around our yard!
Final thought: If my children were small, I probably would be careful about choosing large, heavy lawn ornaments, such as the Savannah Bird Girl. But that’s not an issue we need worry about. And the little cherub planter is not very fragile, even if we had small children. And they add so much to an outdoor living space that, with care, children and lawn ornaments can coexist without damage to either!
