My 5th dragon looks up cautiously from his perch on an overturned pot. He stands about 15″ tall and has found shelter next to a hail ravaged Sum and Substance Hosta, Korean boxwood and my latest planting violas.

I have two great new garden art pieces thanks to my very crafty friend Brenda and her mom Jean. They spent many an hour finding the wonderful glass pieces that went into these glass flowers.

With lovely locked tails and upright ears, these three dragons are sweet little sentries. They keep watch of the side yard and back under the honey locust. With a greenish tint they are quite striking. I received these for my anniversary in 2014.

This is Paws. Isn’t he the most special sweetest garden ornament you’ve seen? My friend Brenda agrees. So I will be heading out to a new nursery, Creek Side Gardens, http://www.plantsbycreekside.com/ to buy Brenda her very own. He will look especially at home once I get the annuals planted. What a treasure.
