We have been reworking our front and back yards this year after some house remodeling. The yards are small and there are still many patches of dirt. It is a work in progress. But Snaildon (seemed like an appropriate name) is one of my favorite additions. I found him at a local nursery a few years ago but Hubby wasn’t enamoured with him as much as I was. (For one thing he is about 3 feet tall and weights about 500 pounds! He is solid concrete!) I visited him off and on for a year or so continuing to tell Hubby that we needed him. One day after I had given up, Hubby went to the nursery to pick up some flowers for me and came back and told me that Snaildon was on sale and he had bought him! It took a bit of work to get him moved into place but I love him! And every child who comes near climbs on. I just love the expression on his face!
We bought this frog on the Las Vegas Strip many many years ago. He sits near the walkway to the front door.
Can’t remember where I found the turtle, it also sits near the front walkway. A few times people have thought he was real!
I have toured gardens that have signs posted to identify various plants by their special name and I thought I should do the same for my succulent garden.
A garden isn’t complete without a few special touches!
