I've had this Buddha statue forever. It's been sitting on a plain gray cement paver getting pooped on by birds. Time for an upgrade! So I covered his/her paver in mosaic and gave him/her some necklaces. I also planted some Freesia bulbs in the surrounding dirt. I think Buddha is supposed to be male, but I kind of prefer androgyny here. Obviously, I'm not Buddhist if I think this way, but both of my parents have always had Buddha statues as a reminder to relax and enjoy life. That is my only reason for having a religious icon in my yard. Relax people!
