Some years ago I bought a very nice concrete garden ornament of a reclining gender-free person, head on arms and feet in the air. This cropped photo shows it in its prime.And this is how it looks now, rather sad and sorry..... It's just split into slices, probably due to the very hard winter we had at the beginning of this year, and age.
This lamb was originally an impulse buy and it lived on my bookshelves as a bookend until I needed the space, when it was relegated to the garden. It's grown a handsome mossy coat in the time it's been outdoors.
My gardening lady, Gillian, made this for me two years ago, as a present. Nice lady! It's usually facing the other way up. It hasn't broken or acquired any mossy growth - well done, Gillian!
