I’ve featured some lawn art before, but I haven’t really shown you the variety of lawn art in my neighborhood. You can find faces…
birds and animals…
and some a bit less classical…

“Netted Mermaid”? If you had asked me, I would have said a two headed serpent with its bowels falling out!
Love the moose!
Wonder how many brids use the “fountain”/bird bath? ;o)
Love the stone faces! They are unique.
Heh, quite the little cherub! Love the look of a weather worn piece of art, especially that first face. And speaking of faces, little May has quite the sweet one.
The moose looks awesome, but that mermaid looks quite sad. She might need a “Save the mermaid” fund!
Does it get any better than “Boy Peeing in Fountain”? Such – creativity!!
That moose would fit in quite nicely up in these parts. 😉
I love the neo-classical lawn art! Hey, my MIL has a “gazing ball” on a pedestal in the backyard.
wait, next to the rainbow flag… is that a mermaid turd?
I like the Rock Face even though it brings up memories of ZARDOZ. Oh, c’mon, you don’t remember ZARDOZ????
LOVE the moose… LOVE LOVE LOVE!
Wow. Your neighborhood is oddly into this whole lawn art thing.
Got to love the peeing kid statue, it’s a classic!
As a small child, I embarrassed my mother once by asking her about a fountain we were looking at (in front of a bunch of other people, of course). I asked her “Why is the lion’s pee-pee coming out of it’s mouth?”
Chris- Anything with a face on it freaks me out- I’d much rather play with May and her nifty toy.
Did I ever tell you about the Moose thing here in Toronto- they were all over the city.
The moose in the hosta made me laugh. The peeing cherub made me wince. The mermaid (oh, so THAT’S what that is) appears to be checking her deodorant.
Thanks for the tour!
The heron is cool. What is that sixth one though, a mermaid with a tumor?
your lawn art is endlessly entertaining – and what a great photo of May!
I always enjoy your pictures, love the boy peeing
I was just over at Judy’s (Persistent Illusion) and darn if SHE doesn’t have a photo of a moose, too! You two are on the same wavelength it seems…
You seriously find the weirdest stuff!
Hey! Has Cursing Mama seen that Moose?
The moose is my favorite, but the weathered faces are pretty cool too. Now if you could only find a statue of a moose playing with a feather toy…
That’s a gorgeous shot of May.
Mayhem has a point.
I’m with May. I much prefer the feather toy.
What?!? No Virgin Marys on the half shell?
Very good! Years and years ago (like 1983) I wanted to make a coffee table book of religious lawn kitsch… And have it all related to different ethnicities… french, italian, german, etc etc… THEN I found out that a moss guru (Howard Crum from Univ Michigan, now decesed) had a slide show that he liked to slip into his seminars, all pics of Mary on the half shell. I sent him one or two from my travels in NY (loads of religious lawn art there… not like here, land of yankee puritan types).
I CAN spell… but you might not know it.
May, toys trump lawn art any day. What is lawn art anyway? I’ve never seen it. Mom bought us on of those scratchy s shaped things like you have and didn’t notice it was supposed to come with a toy attached. What a rip off! We refuse to play with the scratchy thing and Mom is mad.
Ah yes, the ever popular little boy peeing into the bird bath. Always a classic. 🙂
lawn art with dangly things and feather toys would be more C & M’s speed, I take it?
Neat! I should bring my camera on my walks and snap some interesting “art”
Your neighbourhood has much more interesting lawn art than mine does!
Wait, that’s a mermaid? That’s a nice looking moose though. The lawn art in your neighborhood is much more interesting than in mine.
I was scrolling down and almost thought there wasn’t a cat picture!
I like the moose but Mayhem is the best one (if she were lawn art) 🙂
