The Runaway Balls

By Bubbles
April 15, 2010

My husband surprised me one day with two large stone balls for the front garden. He had to have two men help him place them. I just loved them peeking out of the salvias near the sidewalk. Our neighbors would walk up the hill and take a rest, letting their kids sit on top of the balls. This is a story of how the balls wound up hidden in our backyard.

Thanks for taking the time to comment. I still miss having the balls in the front yard. Maybe one day we'll bury 'em in cement so they can't roll!

They say that "what goes around comes around", but isn't it fun to be there?
