When I moved from the farm, I brought very little of the flower gardens. I just couldn't part with my adorable cherub.
Many years ago, a friend was re-designing his garden. I was only too happy to take away the discarded statue. I have lugged the 3 foot cherub from several homes, as I have moved.
Looking around at other cherubs, I've yet to see this particular one. If you click on the photo, you can see the exquisite details, like the hollow in the throat. (Suprasternal Notch)

You can see the hibernating water lily under the surface of the water. The wood rail is also a reflection of the deck above.
For the most part, the new flower gardens are just an idea on paper.
I've planted a few blue delphiniums for spring flowering.
The lilac colored flowers, of the Society Garlic, will continue to bloom through-out the warmer summer.
It looks like I might have several pears on the recently planted fruit trees...that is, if we don't have a late freeze.
