Garden Patron Saints

Spring has sprung… I am trying very hard to ignore the fact that it is still so cold outside. But alas we have crossed the threshold of the Spring equinox. I don’t know about you, but I am itching to get into my garden. We purchased a new home late last summer. This will be my first gardening season in this house.

Following our theme of a blog post about a Saint each week of March, I thought I would share some Patron Saints that might just bring good blessings to your garden… whether it be veggie or flower.

Saint Francis

Nature's Sanctuary Saint Francis Garden Statue

Patron Saint of the garden’s birds and animals and of ecology. Founder of the Franciscans, he is often shown preaching to the birds.In Nature’s Sanctuary Saint Francis Garden Sculpture will be a religious and nature focal point will leave your guests in awe! Saint Francis rises over three feet high on his generous, four-foot-long log perch. This Italian patron saint of nature reaches toward the gentle lamb at his feet, showcasing amazing detail from the folds of his garment to his benevolent expression. The artist captures intricacies sometimes lost in sculpts this grand in scale, casting our exclusive in quality designer resin as an heirloom for decades to come.

Saint Therese 

Saint Therese - Theresa Statue 25

Saint Therese – Theresa Statue 25″ High

Our Saint Therese of Lisieux Therese Martin statue is a sculpted likeness of this beloved woman. She was cured from an illness at age 8 when a statue of the Blessed Virgin smiled at her. Many lives have been touched by her intercession. Prior to her death, she vowed, to “Spend my heaven doing good on earth. I will let fall a shower of roses .” For this she is the Patron Saint of Florists.  Her roses continue to fall everywhere in the world to those who pray for her intercession. Saint Therese Statue would make a beautiful addition to any rose garden.

Saint Fiacre 

Saint Fiacre Sculpture 30

Saint Fiacre Sculpture 30″ High

Saint Fiacre Garden Sculpture is made of cast stone and is wonderful for the home or garden. Saint Fiacre was born in Ireland and raised in a monastery. Much of mankind learning and knowledge was brought to the monasteries and left in the care and protection of the monks. Travelers brought seeds and plant material, as well as cultural enlightenment from as far away as Rome and the Holy Land. Saint. Fiacres days at the monastery taught him a deep love of silence, the joys of planting and harvesting crops and an appreciation of nature. Drawn to the religious life and the desire to serve God in solitude, Fiacre decided to establish a hermitage for worship. Monks in those days were regarded as physicians of the body as well as the soul. Soon people were flocking to Fiacre for prayers, food and healing. He fed the hungry and healed the sick with herbs from his garden and prayed for all who came there. From his work be became Patron Saint of vegetable Garden and men who like to garden.  Our spiritual garden figurine of Saint Fiacre is cast in cast stone to add a meditative and miraculous presence to your own Eden. Another quality Statue.com religious garden statue!

Grande Lascala Fountain

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but it is quickly approaching that time of year again. It is time to start thinking about fountain and statue care when the temperatures take a dive. I know this is hard to believe with temperatures currently in the 90’s. However, autumn and winter will be knocking on our door. It is always good to have a game-plan for protecting beautiful statuary and fountains so you may enjoy them year after year. Luckily, if the statue or fountain is approved for outdoor use there are only simple steps that need to be taken to prevent damage as these sculptures are built with the weather in mind.

One must follow these simple guidelines:

  1. Do not allow water to collect and freeze in fountain bowls or shells
  2.  Do not allow water to collect and freeze in planters, saucers or birdbaths
  3.  Do not allow statuary or pedestals to sit in a pool of ice

Henri Fountain Cover

To avoid ice collecting it is best if you can store your fountain or statue indoors. If this is not an option fill the bowls or shells with an absorbent material such as Henri Underlay, burlap bags, blankets, etc. Should condensation droplets form, they will be absorbed by the material. Then cover the entire fountain with a fountain cover. Statue.com sells many different sizes of  Henri Fountain Covers. These are great covers for protecting your fountain year after year.

Angella Statue With Bowl Birdbath

It is also advisable that the pump is removed from the fountain. Performing routine pump cleaning and patience is always a good idea too. It’s a simple task that requires cleaning the intake area and impeller, especially if the pump has remained idle for a length of time. To do this, remove front pump housing. Brush and/or wipe clean the inside of the housing and the pump’s inner face. Remove the impeller and shaft and rinse, using warm vinegar water or Henri Lime Remover to remove any hard water calcium deposits. Reassemble impeller and housing in reverse order. You can also remove calcium buildup in the bowls and shells with white vinegar. After you apply, run the fountain, the molecules in the water will actually diminish the residue.  In some states, water is really hard making it very difficult to remove residue on any product made out of concrete, but the vinegar will certainly help.

With the first day of summer upon us we thought we would share our top five Statue.com summer favorites.

1. )

Tiki Sculpted Table Set & Stools Bar Height

Summer is not complete without pool parties and BBQ’s. This Tiki Table and Stools would complete any party and be a great conversation piece. A definite summer time party necessity!

2.)

Reproduction of Louis Comfort Tiffany Summer Landscape

One of Tiffany’s favorite themes, the colors in this glass piece catches the essence of summer time.  His landscapes were one of his most beloved productions. This lovely freestanding Summer panel on wood stand would capture light beautifully in any sun-room. Statue.com is particularly proud of this reproduction which captures the subtle hues and luminous quality of the glass interpreted by Tiffany.

3.)

Drinking The Rain Toad Weather Gauge Statue

Summers in our neck-of-the-woods bring on fabulous thundershowers. We love this fun and functional toad sculpted by George Carruth  for our backyard to gauge just how much rain is falling from the sky.  It’s hard to hold back a smile when this little fellow has a mouthful of rain water. A perfect gift for gardeners or anyone else who enjoys keeping an eye on the weather. Display outdoors during the summer, or indoors as a candle holder in the winter.

4.)

Single Daisy Wall Plaque Sculpture

Daisies bring to mind wild open fields and the warmth of summer. Notice this sculpture has an inchworm, butterfly and ladybug to complete a summery meadow scene. The vertical shape of this plaque allows it to fit into any space. This would be a thoughtful gift for a gardener or anyone who enjoys nature.

5.)

Summer Solstice Wall Plaque Sculpture

The warmth of this Summer Solstice Wall Plaque Sculpture will radiate on any pool deck or shine on any garden. No summer would be complete without it! Larger than some of our other sun faces, this fellow really makes a statement, even from a distance. You can’t deny his sunny smile has a memorable charm!

Temperatures are rising and rainfall is scarce, summer is definitely upon us, here in the Mid-West. The sound of water has always been a favorite to me, especially if I need to relax, unwind and refresh.  A  fountain placed on my patio has enabled me to enjoy that soothing sound, where I can lose myself in reverie or escape in a good book. I have always enjoyed being outside and my garden is my haven. I have added a fountain in my front garden where not only is it a focal point and welcoming feature for all who visit but it is also placed where I can enjoy the sound and sight of water as I sit in the shade of my front porch,
