The Sculptures are supper the Artist leaves it up to you to decide what you want them to be. Even thou they had names. Decorate the garden for Hollween.🕷🕸 gardens are lite🎃 up in the even. They do the same Thanksgiving🦃 🍗and Christmas.🎅🎄 Get place for children to go have a children garden and a Japanese🌅 garden. You can see how the Meijer loves God! ☝.
