In the never-ending war against gazing globes (awful or awesome?), here’s an example of one done right. Dan Johnson popped one on top of a handsome pot to reflect his patio in his garden in Denver, Colorado. It’s small, a subtle color, and just right. Do you agree?

    It's very subtle, which is what makes it work. This makes me want to keep an eye out for one at the end of season sales.

    Beautiful. I think gazing globes can be a worthy contribution in a garden when placed correctly - just like this.

    I really like this idea! We bought a gazing globe this summer -- but couldn't come up with a good way to display it -- this is terrific. Thank you!

    I really love this idea! Now to keep my deer from licking it and knocking it over :-)
