Those statues are really neat! Do they represent anything in particular? Some local event/activity?
When I was deciding on how to plant my front garden after it had been landscaped, I had three main parts to consider - the purpose-built flower bed, the two areas of gravel, and the largest area of all, the mulched slope that goes down to the road. Some of it slopes quite steeply so I was concerned that the mulch would simply slide downhill, particularly when it rained - which in this country it does quite a lot. So I put some shrubs in the steepest area and just below them I tipped some topsoil on top of the mulch. It's only a strip, about half an inch deep and a foot wide, but I figured that if my plan didn't work that would be easy enough to lose in the mulch with a bit of raking. Anyway, onto that topsoil I sprinkled some wildflower seeds... and this is what I got:
The flowers start out as dark blue buds and as they open they go through a purple phase and then turn pink - a bit like some teenagers I know. This afternoon when I went out with my camera, they were covered, and I mean covered
in bumblebees, honeybees, hoverflies - you name it, if it buzzed it was there. I took three or four pics, but when I got them on to the computer there wasn't an insect to be seen!
