What is a Garden Sphere?

Blickkugeln or Blickkugeln have been used to decorate gardens for centuries. These iridescent glass orbs, usually on a base or wrought iron base, were originally thought to ward off evil and bring good luck. Today, they are just ornaments peeking out from plants and reflecting gardens. Place the gazing ball in a low-traffic area to avoid breakage. 

Glass balls should be stored indoors during the winter to prevent captive witches from cracking and escaping. Unlike hanging friendly balls or ring witch balls, glass balls come in a variety of forms, some have stems that can be safely placed on racks, while others are more uniform in shape and can be placed on the grass.
