Off we went to Rosenbalm Rockery about 15 minutes away. A helpful young man helped us and explained the different base choices and flagstones and rocks. I asked him if he would pose for a photo while he weighed the slate stones we picked.
Here are a few slate pieces we picked out for the front stepping stone detailing.
We walked around to see all the garden items.
Here is a peek at the claws of.......
.....a gargoyle that stole my heart.
Isn't he adorable? He's just the right size for our garden castle shed. In medieval times gargoyles were placed atop cathedrals and other important buildings to ward off evil. Our little guy will ward off anything that will put our garden fairies in danger.
Do you have an idea for his name?
