Whimsical Garden Ideas

I have 13 gardens by the North Shore of Lake Superior. My son and I have been adding fun things each year! We have over 190 solar lights and a lot of whimsical decorations. Most of our gardens are surrounded in rocks. I have glued mirror pieces and colored gems on many of them. Maybe you will get some ideas for your gardens. I love to share ideas and get ideas from Hometalk!
