They Do Float!

Savannah and Atlanta 044
Thanks for all the great advice on remedying my gazing-ball-free condition.  Gene's question, whether gazing balls float, reminded me that garden designer Ryan Gainey's witty garden in Atlanta had a pond with balls floating in it.  I was there with my friend Julia, who knows Ryan and adores him, about four years ago.

  1. I have a friend who keeps a bunch of silver-metal, bowling ball-sized balls floating in his pool. Many an off-color joke has been made.

    these shiny globes remind me so much of growing up in the midwest. I need to get some here in the Bay Area…SF would love them. Matti

    I had floating balls in my pond but birds kept landing on them and slipping and drowning so I removed them. I hope you have better luck with your balls. (:-))

    We have these half coconuts filled with candles. Once in a while we float them lit in out pond. Great for parties too. Need a canoe to put them out, we have that too.

    I’m getting a gazing ball this weekend – i love it! Perfect excuse to cull out some of the water hyacinth.
    Drowning birds? So sad…

    I do not know why any one would want to put those in their ponds. Flowers with candles, maybe. (lol)
