Mindy asked for some pics of my garden, featuring the decor. Here's one of my favorite. Shows my interests of Gargoyles, Greyhounds and Gardens.

Here's one in the mini hosta bed - the frog is from poho and always makes me smile.

Here's a grouping that makes it look like a mama and baby griffin. That's Emily Dickenson in the pic with them.

The other end of the Mini hosta bed. An original statue named Randy after the owner of cement place nearby.

A roaring griffin (Alex Summers in the lower left corner. Prime time in that spot of the garden I think.

Colette, I love it!!!

There is a big bronze 3-piece alligator at a local art gallery. I've been lusting after it for years now, maybe this is the year I take the plunge when they have their next 20% off sale.

Andy - hint, hint! I know you want a second guitar Big Grin

Love your garden art. That's what is sorely missing in my garden.

Greyhounds! We have two retired racers--Quin and Ella. Your grey is a beauty. Lovey dubby

Love the gargoyles, too. We just adopted a new dragon for the front entry bed I started this spring. When I get a good shot of it (tried today, but it was too darn windy so it looked like all the plants were leaning to the left) I'll post it.

I am the one who private emailed you on the GPA WI site to come on over here, also talked to you about coming to the IA roundup when you joined Daves Garden a while back. I have rescued for years and currently have 2 greyhounds.
I travel to WI alot because most of my relatives are in mid WI area.
Sometime we should run them at one of the dog parks up there. I do Waunakee, Verona, Token Creek, and Ripon often.

Bah, I completely forgot that the invitation came through GPA-WI. My mind is apparently going, and I'm only 44. *Blush* In my defense, I communicate with SO many people online (my job is made up entirely of online communication) that it all becomes a blur after a while. lol

We have a beautiful dog park just off of I-94 a bit in Johnson Creek. It was 40 acres, but they've expanded and now it's even bigger. I haven't taken my dogs there this year, but it's high time I did. Let me know any time. :)
