Ganesh Bell

Ganesh Bell

This is the Ganesh bell I bought yesterday. Now I just need to find a tree sturdy enough to hold it...

I would like to do a little Indian-deity style corner in my garden. I have a 10" stone statue of Ganesh, which goes out in summer and now I have the bell. But it is not enough.

I do have something though.  I have two 2ft wooden deities that we bought in India around 1992. They were my pride and joy for many years but they haven't had a proper display place for some years now. It is a shame that they should gather dust.

I wonder if I could varnish them? I feel inspired by Fran...

Wow, me inspiring someone................that's a first ;-))

Rachel, could you post a picture of the wooden deities when you get a chance, I might be able to advise you what would be the best thing to do.

Love the bell.

Can't believe you're saying you might not have a tree sturdy to accommodate that Ganesh bell! Sure, haven't you got loads of lovely trees!

Yes you have just given me an idea that had I a bell hanging from a branch it could be used to call me up from the depths of the scrub!

Lovely bell , that's a good idea Scrubber a bell would save the legs and the voice but think here it might be ignored.

I don't have any big trees yet, Jacinta. The cherry tree is the biggest.

It has a good sound, Liga.

This is bell no. 2 in our garden, Scrubber. The other one is used by the kids to annoy us.

You divil, Geraldine.
