Here’s another one of Ferny Hill Retreat‘s garden ‘moments’. Those who’ve been following our blog will know that our garden moments are arty surprises, placed strategically for people to discover as they wander around.

I added the two mannequins pictured below to a garden bed next to an old grey shed. Once a dreary spot, it now zings thanks to the bright pops of colour. When I get around to it, a trailing plant in the blue mannequin’s tummy will complete the look. 

 Not all of our garden moments are based on mannequins, but there is another one here. We designed this one to blend in, rather than stand out. 

So what do you think?

If you like the idea of adding mannequins to your garden they’re cheap and easy to find online.

You can leave them as they are or give them 2 coats of spray paint.

Then plop them in a suitable spot and stand back to admire your handiwork. It’s so quick and easy!
