My favorite folly

Every year I haul this guy out of the shed and set him on the stone wall.  I wait until the garden around him begins to show its colors to get my inspiration to "dress him" for the occasion.  This year I chose to feature a single pansy so that every time I looked at their cheerful little "mugs" I would think of my son's face and feel joy, as he's a US soldier presently serving in Afghanistan.
