Lawn Ornaments

I was out weeding the new section of trees and flowers that we installed a few wks. ago and noticed some of my lawn ornaments had taken a real beating from the 98 to 100 degree sunny days here in the deep south. I decided I would put a fresh coat of paint on them and give them a "face lift", so to speak.

The before picture.The mushroom afterwards.
The mushroom and the frog in their new home. The roses in the new section. Mind you, they are only a few wks. old. but growing and surviving in this extreme heat.

Another frog sitting under a tree. Taking a closer look at him I think he'll need some touching up soon.

This one is a little larger and sits at the very back of the backyard near the bird bath.
I painted the larger frog recently, too
One sits in the little water fountain and seems to keep the birds from playing and making a mess in the fountain. I assume they are afraid of it.
One more sits in this cascade of flowers at the entrance to the back gate.

I hope you're having a fun week!

Oh I love frogs! I have a frog themed bathroom in our family room in the basement. Very cute lawn ornaments. Can I ask where you found them?

What cute little frogs. The new paint looks great. I have a few things in the yard that could use a little paint. Maybe someday if they're lucky.

I love your yard frogs. They are darling. Your mushroom turned out cute too. And your grass is soooo green. Mine has suffered from the intense heat. I'm thinking of the replacing it with the fake grass.

Oh, how cute! You had better not let Justine from Justine's Froggy Bloggy see these little frogs. She'll come over and take them. You have to watch that gal! lol
Be a sweetie,

I also love having frogs around my yard. Yours are so adorable. Great job on the repaint. Mine may need the same with our heat being 100 degree plus each day.

I am having a giveaway and it would be an honor for you to stop by and leave a comment.
hugs, Celestina
