Adorned Cottage…

So beautiful are Cottage Garden’s adorned in Statuary's and wrought iron.

A little cherub hangs from the main archway to the house.

Love cherubs in the garden – there is a sense of peace finding them in garden nooks.

I have loved watching these bird baths grow various annuals around them and have seen them enjoyed by many species of birdies.021

I acquired this windmill from a family member after their passing – so lovely to see that life of this beauty has carried on her spirit.

Just a few of my cement urns awaiting a floral display of flowers soon.

Most of my whimsy décor is stored for winter, but looks like these sweet goodies were forgotten and spent a few cold nights outdoors…

Sprinkle a little bird seed in these feeders for the wondering birdies…

Although this is emptied and off for the winter, in the summertime, all sorts of birds come for a splash and a visit for water. Next to it, I have nyjer provided for a snack.

Sitting on the bench to enjoy the “life of my garden” is one of my favorite places to be.

So many little treasures to see amongst your flowers...I do love the windmill...I am still hunting a low birdbath for my "fairy garden"...Currently the top of my large one is sitting on the ground out there...I am scared if we put it up on the stand she will pull it down on herself.

Blessings Kelsie
