Garden Inspirations: Statues

By Simone Design Blog @HomeSpire

Now that spring has arrived, the weather is warmer and the colors of flower blossoms are popping up in the garden; therefore, it’s the perfect time to add some playfulness and unexpected touches to your outdoor spaces. Lately, I’m finding myself drawn to garden statues. Looking at them, I stop and think about getting one for my own garden. I think they give the outdoor area a special touch of personality, since they often say something about the interests and beliefs of the homeowners. Garden statues are great conversation pieces and add a special mystique to a property.

To give you some inspirational ideas, I’ve put together a few examples. Maybe they’ll tempt you into giving your yard a touch of whimsy…

Here’s the first statue I bought for my garden. It’s a little sitting cherub. I named her after my much missed dog, Tiffany. Isn’t she cute?
