As the daffodils raise their heads it’s time to embrace the Spring sunshine (thank goodness!) so look to your outdoor space and plan your garden now before those pesky weeds start to surface and the lawn suddenly demands a haircut! Adding a little mystery and intrigue to your garden to create a new look for the summer ahead is easy with garden ornaments and statues from Vintage Vibe.  There are a lot of options out there to spruce up your scrub land and here are some fabulous ideas to enable you to create your very own ‘Secret Garden’ meets ‘Narnia’ look! No matter what size outside area you have there is always room for a little magic – which the kids will love! The first ‘must have’ for a Secret Garden’ is the famous garden gate and the arched garden mirror with iron gate design pictured above, provides the perfect look. Reflecting the garden around you, this artistic leaner mirror can be placed against the vines to simply let the garden take over.  Visitors will see the glimpse of a gate and be intrigued which is exactly as it should be! For £160 plus delivery this is a statement piece that brings your garden to life. large-classical-lion-garden-statue-ornament-10451-p[ekm]300x449[ekm] This handsome stone Lion is just perfect to bring Narnia alive!
