If your outdoor-enhancing ideas have come to a standstill, take your garden to dizzying new heights with these wind mobiles. Reflecting light and colour in a brilliant display, the spiral motion of the Tranceglow mobiles (shown left, $15) will send visitors to your garden into a dream-like state. They’re available in metallic, translucent and fluorescent colours and come in a variety of lengths.
If you are looking for something a little less entrancing but just as dazzling, hand-crafted, copper Cosmix mobiles (top, $90) spin in the slightest breeze, with inner and outer spirals rotating in opposite directions.
Gardeners who want a touch of colour, as well as motion, will enjoy the Confetti Scroll marble mobile (right, $35). Copper is intertwined with glass, creating sparkle for your special outdoor space.
