Sofia’s not so secret garden and her giant pretzel or green heart. Green space is what makes home my home. It’s like a thumb print, what you put into it, is your personal preference, making use what is available. A creative ode. It is also a reflection of kindness when you can identify what you have exchanged or what has been gifted to you by ways of cuttings or repurposing items that could of ended up in the tip.

This is a set of two adorable dark green and yellow birds. The description stated one bird is black but looking closely it actually looks very dark green. Either way, I love them and the color doesn’t matter to me. The birds are beautifully hand painted and very detailed and lifelike. They are made of a resin material, which I am so pleased about because they are more durable and will last a long time. I have been trying to get away from products made of chalk and ceramic because these products break far too easily. There is a protective coating on each bird to ensure that it doesn’t fade in the sun and water. The birds are as large as real birds, maybe a little bigger.
These lovely birds would be so nice in a garden, yard, on a porch or patio. They also would be very nice decorations in the home on a table or shelf. I have not decided how I will use them yet. I have placed them on a shelf with a pretty vine and loved how they looked. Even though winter is still holding on here, I took them out and placed them in my flower garden with some rocks and they looked so pretty out there so I am having a hard time deciding where to put them! I honestly, may have to think about getting another set so that I can enjoy having a set outside and inside both.

Busy in the garden, with help from hubbie, installed pallet upright, makes for a fab vertical planter with interesting detail. Got hold of some of mum’s cuttings and finished up with this. Pretty awesome.
