Garden Art For Spring

This is a bowling ball I decorated using half marbles. I love the way it looks in the sun.

I have to start planning a design for the bowling balls I'm planning on buying this coming spring and it's just around the corner for us in Texas. I'm going to paint some and jewel some to make my back yard pretty.I had a hard time finding bowling balls at garage sales but finally found this one at a antique shop. I haven't worked nor really been in my back yard for months and I'm really getting the urge to do that again. I also want to make a big bird bath out of hypertufa and using a big elephant ear leaf for a mold. I'v been waiting for my elephant ear to produce big leafs.
By the way this is an Angel's Trumpet plant and if you don't have one you should get one because the scent is just wonderful. It smells like lemons mixed with sweet perfume and at night the scent travels up to 10 to 15 feet.
