We bought the Shady Lady a few years back at a going out of business sale at a garden centre - a good bargain since statuary can be expensive.
In Toronto we had her in the far back corner, so one really had to be out seated at the table to see her in all her glory.
The brown spots at her neck and near her hand are from a failed attempt at encouraging moss to cover her using a beer slurry.
But I have not given up yet.
Once we find her a home in Tuxedo I will be back at it and try again, this time covering her with plastic and keeping her warm and damp indoors while the initial moss takes root.
While she will lose some of the finer details I definitely want to see her covered from head to toe
in fuzzy green. Well, maybe I will leave her eyes uncovered so she can see...
