garden statue

I found this lovely lady a couple of years ago at an auction. Named her Persephone. She is made of concrete so I had DH sink supports below the frost line so she doesn't heave in the spring.

She's gorgeous! And I'm envious. I wish she was in my garden.

Please share with us where you found her. Was it a business? She is so lovely and looks wonderful in your garden.

Here is another angle of her. She stands about 7 feet tall on her base. I bought her at a household auction in St.Paul from a lovely elderly couple with a gorgeous garden.

Yes, your gardens are so green...a good sight! But your lady is so lovely! What a find! Lucky you & that she found a great garden home, too. TFS! Jeanne S.

As petalstx said, she looks like she is tending the garden, deciding what plants to water! What a wonderful addition she is to your lovely garden! (I like your metallic art sculptures too!)

What a lovely statue. The draping of her clothing, her hair, the way one knee is bent--fabulous. Will she weather your climate?
