But wait on looking further we realize that more bird and even a couple of dogs seem to have taken refuge in this oasis of tranquility. But on further inspection we see they are also almost life like replicas made out of either stone or cast in metal. What else could be lurking in this new exciting garden?
If you have ever visited homes open to the public or even in some public parks you will see how the strategic use of metal art or metal garden sculptures can turn an otherwise quite normal (all be it beautiful) location in to something far more intriguing and far more of a talking point.
