Cupid Roams My Garden

Several Years ago,  right after Christmas
I spied this statue in a garden center in Seattle

The statuary shop (The Secret Garden) was closed..
This is the view I had of "cupid"

I Loved the idea of cupid sneaking through my garden
with his quiver of love arrows...
looking to bring love to all who cross his path.

Truth be told....
when I purchased him his receipt said "The Hunter"
and the front of the statue was not as "romantic" as the back.
But I was sure he would work out.

When I got him home I struggled to find a place for him in the garden
where he could be cupid like.

Finially.. I had the crazy idea to face him towards the lattice fence,
buried deep in the bushes.

Just peaking through......

Silently... keeping watch on the patio

Waiting... for an unsuspecting victim to cross his path:-)

Today I am linking up to White Wednesday

Great garden! And I like the way the moss is growing on him, it gives him a much older look. I also luv to garden But the snails luv to eat my foxgloves... Have a great W.W. Julian

I think the best part of your new statue is the size. Little ones (and I have a few) lose their importance in the garden when you can hardly see them.
Good find!

What a great piece of statuary. I've never seen an actual cupid before. Thanks for playing along.
