I say leave it where you want it, you are promoting relaxation and positivity! I am sorry you live in a bad neighborhood. And a big YES to the tiki torches, I love those things! Life is short do what makes YOU happy!
We only have trees in our front yard so Gracies yard toys are always out there and I don't pack them up until almost night time and I have had the same comments made to me about that. The way I see it, it is all my yard and I am going to make the most out of it so they can kiss my behind!!! It works for us!
