What's unexpected in your garden? Photos please!

11 years ago

I have rather classic cottage gardens. Lots of bright blooms, some veggies, stones, arbors, benches, etc. But I also have something that surprises most people - bowling balls! I can tell from the look on their faces that some people find them tacky, but I don't care, I love them. I love the bright colors, the smooth surfaces, the element of surprise. It's true that I usually keep them out of my photos, but I have found some when I searched. Here they are.

These bowling balls are outside of the kids playhouse. Kids universally think they are cool.

Here's my purple favorite, tucked in at the bottom of clematis Etoile Violette.

I have several red beauties nestled in the redbed.
