Adorn with a sculptureGive people something to talk about: a shapely bird table, intricate sun dial or armillary sphere, such as the one in this verdant garden, is a great way to add interest to a space with minimal effort.

Great armillary sundial. Note frame behind dial
The first day of spring, March 20, is a cause for celebration for everyone who has weathered a long, cold winter. We crave the sun as much as our gardens do, and so it seems fitting to focus on sundials and the many ways they can be added to a garden scheme for beauty and practicality
Egyptians erected stone obelisks as far back as 3,500 B.C. to chart the hours, and over the centuries structures like this have been a way to follow the sun. As a garden element, a sundial can bring a touch of classicism to an outdoor space, and depending on how it’s sited, it can be a prominent focal point
armillary spheres as a lighter, more dimensional focal point in the garden. "An armillary evokes a sense of movement in the landscape," he says. "Seeing sun shadows cast onto the ground at different times of day adds interest to the ground plane."

your yard is mostly in the sun or in the shade, you'll need to plant accordingly. This can be a disappointment for new gardeners, who might have visions of peonies and roses and lilacs dancing in their heads. It can be disappointing to consider plants that can handle less sun; it certainly was for me.
