Keep an eye open for big table lamps at thrift stores or yard sales. Remove the top part that holds the light bulb (usually there is a small screw that will release it) and tear out the wiring, so you have just the lamp-base. Place it in the garden or on a deck for a pedestal which can be used to hold a gazing ball, decorated bowling ball, or potted plant

Best of all, create a bird-bath, and bring the little wild birds into your garden. Use the largest possible clay pottery saucer which can be painted and sealed to remain nice for a very long time.
