I saw the idea for a bowling ball garden on one of my midcentury modern fb pages. Someone had posted a picture of her mother’s garden decorated with bowling balls. I am not really sure why it appealed to me, but it did.

I started to pick up bowling balls at Goodwill when I saw a color that interested me. I also picked up random metal baskets and candle holders to display my bowling balls in the garden. I was really excited when I found some candlepin bowling balls!

I would like to tell you that my neighbors found these sculptures to be odd but, they have come to realize that I am not your typical decorator. I am hoping that when my gardens fill in, the bowling ball sculptures will add a unique, colorful, and eye-catching addition to the plants.
