Lady Of The Garden

While scouring local stores for a couple of items I came across this garden ornament. As I searched the merchandise for what I had really came into the store for, my interest was with the lady - she belonged in my garden! As quite often happens in the grocery store when you don't think you need a basket, my arms were loaded as I checked out angel in hand.

Setting her down temporarily while unloading my other purchases, I realized how nicely she blended in with the garden where she stood and decided that was where she would stay.

Shortly after Craig wandered by and noticed the new addition to the garden. With a surprised look on his face he proceeded to tell me how earlier that same day he had been in the same store and saw her sitting on the shelf and almost brought her home to me!

So there she stands watching over the garden, this winged lady, all decked out in hat, necklace and bracelet toting her trowel and watering can. Some things are just meant to be.

I love your lady and your garden looks great too !
I do that too .. don't take a basket or cart ... then I'm fully loaded which means something has to fall out of my arms any second ... and it does ! LOL
