  Garden Bookworm editor's notes:  
A sundial. A rustic thatch-roofed birdhouse. A pale marble figure, softened with age. Amid the naturally decorative bounty of flowers and shrubs, the right ornament in the right place can transform a garden. Generously illustrated throughout in full-color photographs, Garden Ornament is a sourcebook of inspiration and practical ideas. Garden Ornament covers everything a gardener needs to know to add magical finishing touches to the hard-earned work of digging and planting. Here are decorative ornaments (statues, obelisks, sundials), and working ornaments (flowerpots, bee skeps, scarecrows). Detailed information on materials and their care, from classic cast stone to contemporary cast resin. Design menus for cultural effect and information on lighting a garden, on seasonal ornamentation and on exploring the irreverent.
