Yard Art. Don't groan. We're all entitled to our preferences. As the old Texas saying goes, "There ain't no flapjack so thin that it don't have two sides."
And I know you've committed Yard Art yourself. It may be small; you may not call it Yard Art. But you've got a frog, fountain or flamingo among the flowers in your domain.
Our Yard Art runs toward functional, like this arbor Denny built for my birthday a couple of years ago, after which he asked me if we could just go to the jewelry store for my next birthday.
The year before, Denny built a waterfall for my birthday, the one the hummingbirds bathe in.
And, OK, I'll admit, we've got a cement animal. A small one.
But nothing to beat this concrete Bevo guarding a hacienda down the road.
Now I want to hear about your yard art. What funnies or fancies grace your plot?
