Lately on my neighborhood walks, I’ve found myself spying deeper into people’s lawns, flowerbeds, and entryways. Must be I’m subconsciously seeking stimulation I was easily getting elsewhere pre-Covid.
Unexpectedly, I’m seeing lots of lawn ornaments and statues. So far, angels, ducks, geese, and the Virgin Mary are the standouts.
For someone who’s never owned a lawn ornament, I spin off wondering how do people pick? A turtle or a bear, the Virgin Mary or a squirrel, a mushroom or St. Anthony. And for others, where will they stop?
