Each season has its own set of garden statuary. Most sculptures for outside look great all year long but statues of African animals just look out of place when coated with ice and snow. To me, statues of fairies seem perfect for warm spring and summer weather while religious and Asian-themed sculptures look fantastic any time of the year. When the cool weather of autumn blows in from the north, greenman wall decor can heighten the effects of the fall season in any backyard. Nevertheless, there are certain types of greenman decorations that have "summer" written all over their gnarled, wizened faces.
Bacchus, the God of Wine Wall Sculpture is one such piece. I just can't imagine the classical patron saint of summer parties being displayed at any other time of the year. As befits the original "king of the party", he sports bunches of wine grapes and looks ready for another drink. Make this summer sculpture feel right at home by putting him up on a sunny, ivy-covered wall.
The Le Printemps and Le Etoile French Greenman sculptures are perfect for spring but since "Le Etoile" means summer, both are just as beautiful during the months of June, July, and August.
