A very old, chippy garden statue of Mary.
Mary watches over all the plants and wildlife that make their homes in our little backyard.
We just recently uncovered her (in her delicate state, she needs to be protected from the harsh New England winters). I didn't even realize she had a spiderweb attached to her until the sun hit it just right.
Mary resides under our cherry tree. I love the contrast of her old, chippy blue paint against the pale, soft pink of the cherry blossoms, which happen to be in bloom right now.
We have had incredibly high winds in our region today with trees down and scattered power outages. I'm so thankful that I took these photos a few days ago....
... because I'm afraid the wind may have made short work of these beautiful blossoms, and when I look out the window tomorrow they'll be gone with the wind!
