Bryan's (Artsy) View of the Garden
« on: June 15, 2009, 06:45:01 am »
I've already posted a coupl'a pics from Bryan in the 'Mon Jardin' thread. He's now added dozens more pics to my computer so, should you care to check em out, here they be - well some of em, anyways.

This Hens 'n Chicks type plant is LARGE. The thickness of a leg. He moved it behind the house for the summer. Most visitors to the garden go WTF? Seems like the perfect image to start off this thread.

Hey, that's beautiful. If I use my imagination, it looks like a pair of pure white peace doves on the flower.  :)
