My Garden Ornament – Eeh its grand to be daft

Poor Bessie is old and fragile. Shortly after she came to hang out with me a previous mend of one of her arms failed and she had to come down. I told you about my repair-by-braille and after a week the clear Hard as Nails cured around the new metal clamp and, thanks to my former Special Forces Godson-in-law we cobbled a way to hang her in a more sheltered spot that required no damage to the property, and she was hoisted aboard.

Not as gloriously flambuoyant out of full sunshine, but as someone pointed out, a little less dangerous as the crystals might start a fire.

I feel a kinship with Bessie. Both damaged and worn, a bit wonky, dont quite light up the world anymore, but still sparkly and still hanging around making the neighbours smile.

She lifts my soul as I look out on her glistening like diamonds. Welcome nome Bessie!

  1. Thanks Mandy. I am never sure how blurry they are these days! My phone contract is up and I am sorely tempted to get one with better photo options. This Samsung has been really disappointing. I never buy a phone for the phone itself. I got this one for the bigger screen. I am still finding things it does that I dont need! And dont get me starred on Google, who are determined to take over my life – and, it seems, the world.
