I do not think I have ever lost a pair of spectacles in my garden. I always find them eventually. I have got much better at searching; my eyesight weakens but my strategy improves. The other night I searched, with a torch, in the dark and in the rain, over and over in the places where I had stooped, or bent double for extended periods. And next morning I found the spectacles 7 miles away in North Seaton!! (where I had left them on the tea tray after recorder playing). Yet still I go on looking, as I have got used to the idea now of them being lost.
