Garden Angels


Around Christmas, I received this garden angel with a heart.  There was no name on it, so I did not know who sent it.  After chatting with my daughter, she told me she sent it. ♥  It is quite charming.  This angel is quite tall- 25.5"
I would think a trailing plant would look great.  Sweet Potato vine, morning glories, ivy.  Maybe just sitting in the middle of your garden.

         


The sparkle of light, the whisper of wings
the fleeting touch that an angel can bring,
will give you guidance and surround you with love,
with the comforting presence that comes from above.
A feather, a coin or a butterfly in view,
can also be signs you have Angels with you.
Acknowledge their presence, trust in their care,
and thank them for showing you that they are there.

I bought one for my mom.  I thought it would look great either in her house or her yard. It looks great surrounded by flowers, such as garden art.

My mom is doing well.  We  miss my dad. I It always takes time, when someone you love passes on. I  go over for visits quite often.  Most of the time, I am helping her organize or work on some projects. We spent the other day shopping all day.  We were both quite exhausted.  We were on the hunt for a pretty runner for her dresser.

Recently my two brothers and I bought new carpet for Mom.  She is thrilled!

I noticed our daffodils are starting to sprout up. Mother nature has some surprises sometimes. We hope to visit Daffodil Hill this year.

  1. I love these garden angels! They are so pretty and I love the idea of something growing on one or just all around it.

    I'm glad your mom is ok. I hope it makes her feel better to know that lots of people are thinking of her.

  2. Your daughter's gift reminds me of a lovely guardian angle watching over you - no matter where you put it! She is so sweet to have given you this - and you're so sweet to give one to your mother, too! So many wonderful emotions coming from this marvelous act!

  5. I have not seen a garden angel before -- or if I have, I didn't know what it is for! Glad to hear your Mom is doing well. Family is so important when adjusting to widowhood.

  7. What a lovely, lovely gift, Linda. She looks beautiful on her own and I bet even prettier covered with a plant. And I totally get the exhaustion. I lost my mom right after New Year's and I have been so tired since...prayers to you and your mom...

  10. Hi Linda, I love the angel. It will look great either in the house or garden. It is so nice for you and your mom to do things together. So sorry to hear about your dad. Your garden looks so beautiful and looks like spring there.
    It's so cold and snowy here and I can't wait for spring to come already. LOL.

  15. What a thoughtful gift from your daughter. A gentle reminder and something to admire while out in the garden. I like the idea of it being nestled in with some flowers. That was nice of you and your brothers to buy your mom the new carpet. I hope she is doing well and adjusting as each day passes. I can hardly wait for spring and to see the daffodils in bloom! Have a wonderful weekend, Liz
