New ideas and old afters

Have you ever seen metal sphere wind socks, nah neither had we. Hubby's idea, emergency tape that he has leftover from his other life recycled! The spheres were actually moss filled planters at one time and opened up into halves. The plants hung lovely at one time, but when they were gone the plants passed on the spheres once again had another life as brightly neon colored garden balls, this is their third life use now as metal sphere wind non-socks but hanging up high in the trees! Off the ground again and this time sprayed with stainless steel colored Rustoleum ...yay they say! Not really but... you know me... more proof of me being me...

Below you will see that the duckling and the frog made it back into the garden from sitting on the edging. The only explanation has to be that they were not too sure of their new ground covered base. I guess they decided the eucalyptus mulch was A-OK! 
 Safe under that gardenia bush with amaryllis and cannas bulbs off to the left there.

 This segment below of  the newly renovated surround the fish pond vista is just a clean up of items no longer needed, but ferns and replanting of a couple of pineapple plants in the shade of the avocado tree!
 

 
The one below here is the repainting of the children and puppy on the slide! Now don't they look so much better and livelier too! Nearby are the schefflera and ficus trees. The ponderosa lemon tree is just around the corner to the left and the one of the two Pinkies, our named flamingoes.   
 
 
 The last picture of the garden surround is the triple decker turtle balancing act, notice without a net yet/still! Although, the youngest has lost his head periodically, but somehow we always find it. This time it was sneaky and hid underneath the old waterfall that met its demise upon falling to pieces when trying to be moved by Hubby as part of the beautification project! But there was that tiny turtle head under it! Hubby super glued it back on, again... Geez, how it got under it there has got to be a story about that, but as usual, nobodies talking! That had to be some kind of a inanimate wild-life party, giving new meaning to the concept, "party animals"!

 
 
 
 
Share those blessings and we will too!
 
 
 
 
And next time please be here or be square, ya hear!
