As Spring pops up all around, I’ve noticed an uptick in shiny spheres in my neighborhood. Known as gazing globes or mirror balls, I find “yard orb” stutters off my tongue pleasingly.

They’re sorta mysterious! I don’t get why people like them, so I’m crowd-sourcing.

Discovering that www.gardengazingglobes.com is a Wisconsin company may explain their local ubiquity.
