COLORADO SPRINGS — Melted bowling balls in the front yard were among the strange sights that met C.J. Moore upon her return on Sunday to her two-story home, now reduced to ashes by the worst wildfire in Colorado history.
“You wouldn’t think bowling balls would melt,” she said by phone from the scene in her Mountain Shadows neighborhood, where she was among residents who were allowed temporary visits to areas most affected by the blaze...
While searching for her great-grandmother’s cast-iron skillets, Moore marveled at the juxtaposition of what burned and what had not. The bowling balls had been garden decorations. http://triblive.com/usworld/nation/2135 ... ents-trash

glass gems on bowling balls
putnamgardens wrote:It started with a gift from my hosta partner in crime's husband. The pink grout one. Then I bought out the dollar store of glass gems. Then I used MY bowling ball and covered it. I JUST went to Joanne's for $.79 cent bags. I bought 7 of Pearl. Plus misc. I even dragged two bowling balls home from Florida this March. You think Hallson forum is addicting.....I surf the garden junk forum. These folks are creative and talented. I'm inspired by their Garden art. Later, Love, Lisa
