The Mama Kat blog writing prompt for today is, "Throwback Thursday: Choose a photo from last April and write about it."
Last April's photo was this little white & blue ceramic cat that I purchased while home in Indiana last year and brought back for my large garden container in my front bed.
I bought it to replace the previous ceramic cat that had blown apart in last years super deep freeze last January/February--at least as a central piece!

But I loved that little blue ceramic cat that shattered in the freeze so much, I I glued him mostly back together and still use him in one of the smaller Amaryllis pots out front, though I store both in the garage during winter! No more weather-shattered ceramics for me!

Next is my newest Garden Art addition: it's part of a pretty clay pot that I'd been using on my patio for years for flowers and, this spring, the window blew it over, breaking it in half. So I plopped the biggest half here. Waste not, want not, I say.
And last, on this tour of my garden art: a pair of clay pots I painted, nested together and planted with cold hardy succulents. You can see pink Shamrocks and yellow Chinese Stonecrop flowers. My Shamrocks leaves are turning yellow--I think they've had too much water with all the rain.
So, what sort of garden art do you decorate your beds with?
That's it for today! Thanks for visiting!
