Your garden is in shape. It's looking good, if you do say so yourself. The view from your back deck while having coffee in the morning puts a smile on your face. And the thought crosses your mind: What if I added a little statue to that flowerbed right over there?
OK, that thought probably didn't occur to you, but you're thinking about it now. So how about it? What if you put a whimsical concrete duck right there? Or, a concrete urn on a pedestal?
Statuary can add a new dimension to your garden; a little added style, something to help you focus your thoughts when having that morning coffee.
People have been doing it for centuries. Garden ornaments were popular in Ancient Rome, hallmarks of the Italian Renaissance, popular in Old English courtyards, used in Asian landscapes. Yet, you have never thought of having one. Until now, of course.
You might want to consider adding it to your garden list.
Drop by West Island Nursery on St. Charles Blvd., just south of Pierrefonds Blvd. in Pierrefonds-Roxboro. We have a great selection of garden statuary.
