A great find! I'm very impressed with your wise cardboard cutout technique as I usually get garden stuff that I like and then haul it around the garden trying to find a space. There's a wonderful chimney pot, purchased this winter, still sitting in our front room because I don't know where it'll fit. Your new lantern looks perfect where you've placed it

We had a black chimney pot in our driveway border for a number of years as a "symbolic" lantern while we searched for a real one.

Congrats! And it would be hard to throw away that cardboard piece, it's wonderful!

What a great find. You are so different than I am regarding a purchase. I would have hauled that baby home and then started thinking "what am I going to do with it? What was I thinking?" ha...

Even though it was made in three sections, they were each very heavy. I think that was what made us decide to go home and think about it first.

Good job! I love it when I stumble on something perfect for the garden. How wise of you to use the cardboard cutout to find the best spot and how lucky it was the first spot. I stumbled across a Gold Heart Dicentra at the Birmingham Botanical Garden gift shop on Monday and snatched it up. Unfortunately I don't know where I'm going to put it.

The cardboard model is ingenious! And I love your find. It will look lovely in your garden.
