Whimseyland.  In Safety Harbor, FL, is a couple of houses, that are known as Whimseyland, or  the Bowling Ball House.

There are bowling balls that have been painted and have become part of the landscaping.  But it is not just bowling balls, there are glass bottles, metal structures and mosaics on the walkways and steps. Artists Todd Ramquist and Kiaralinda own the houses and decorate them.  They asked a number of artists to join in decorating the bowling balls, and now they are exhibited in a building they call the bowling ball museum on the property.
