I was asked by Deb over at Aunt Debbis Garden to post and display some pictures of some silly or whimsical garden art in my garden. I don’t have anything as cute as her Senor Werm. For more whimsy in other gardens please go visit Deb’s plot.
Meet Mr. Turtle. He used to live in my grandmother-in-law’s water garden in Ohio. I inherited Mr. Turtle when she sold her house a several years ago and moved into an apartment. He has been lurking around my garden ever since. I know his shell looks a little ragged but it gives him his own unique charm. He actually can be used as a water sprayer, see the opening in his mouth.
What about this for whimsy? A bird drinking from a miniature flower-shaped birdbath on my birdbath. Is this whimsical? I think so. This has been a part of my garden for a few years too. It was given as a Mother’s Day gift to me from my boys and my hubby.
And just so Mr. Turtle didn’t get too lonely in my garden, my hubby’s grandmother gave me his friend. Her shell is in better condition and she’s smaller, but she has the same open mouth expression just waiting to spray water on you. Hope you enjoyed my whimsical garden art. Have a nice weekend!
