Garden Ornaments

I think I have more trouble with window treatments than garden ornaments!  I
like a pretty natural look, but I do love cat statues.  By limiting myself
to that theme I keep the ornamentation in control.  None is overpowering,
they are all complimentary to their positions in the garden.  Like a real
cat, they look like they belong there.  There are a few items not cat
related.  One birdbath is low so the cats can reach it for a drink and the
other is a big bowl on a bench table.  A few small insect plaques on a bare
spot of privacy fence and the occasional stone with printed Failte.  An
arbor or obelisk that virtually disappears as the season progresses.  I
prefer understatement  in ornamentation.  Perhaps, though, this may also
have something to do with my understated wallet.
