I have a bunch collected from all over. I usually keep them kind of peeking out from behind plants. When I asked DH to please photograph some of them, he brought them out from behind plants to get better light. I didn't have the heart to ask him to put them back and then photograph them again. Here are a few I really like. No Pink Plastic Flamingos for me!




My favorite, I think. Running Man.





No outside cats so these will have to do.




The only rabbits I welcome in the garden.




Some other friends.







Guess I have a lot but when they are tucked in all around it doesn't seem like much. I keep them out year round and some I only see in winter after everything dies down.
Please share some of your treasures.

Neat. Are you happy with this product? Some of the reviews are not so good.

Hippos are not the usual outside garden decoration so I was interested in what you may have.

I have a 3 piece hippo stepping stone set. I got it at Goodwill, cute. I also have a good sized elephant I bought for $5.00 at a garage sale. It isn't cement but heavy enough, I finally got it sanded and painted this year. Now it has to stay where I put it, too heavy to lift back in my radio flyer wagon to put it away for winter.

I put all kinds of things in my flower beds, one is 55 ft. along my back fence, other is behind my 2 car garage so I have room for yard art. Some is nice from art shows, others I just pick up here and there! No pictures though, I'm challenged that way!

Not too many ornaments can be seen this time of year. The swamp weed has all but taken over the front garden.
