Monday Mosaic - Garden Ornaments

Mary at the Little Red House is such an inspiration to me. Her blog is always a nice place to visit because she takes such beautiful photos and shares her travels to gardens, parks, and thrift shops. Lately she has been hosting Mosaic Monday in which I've been participating. I'm secretly hoping some of her talent will rub off on me so my mosaics will improve.
On Friday she asked about favorite garden ornaments so it just seemed natural to incorporate them into my Monday Mosaic. I have lots of garden ornaments in my yard: three bird baths, two lichen encrusted benches, a "Stockton" brick, a gargoyle, an old watering can, two urns by the front door, a sundial, a gnome, and an old man taking a nap. I'd have to say the old man taking a nap is my favorite garden ornament. But the gnome is pretty cute too.

I love your photo of the sundial. As a matter of fact, your mosaic looks professional to me.

Garden ornaments! How clever! And I laughed out loud at the one in the lower left corner. Your garden ornament is asleep on the lounge chair!
Happy holiday to you. Like your sense of humor.
