Better Than Pink Flamingos

Gorilla in the Snow

Great lawn ornament, eh? I think of him as "George".

(Mostly I just needed to get Valentine's Day out of the top spot here.)


* P.S. I didn't expect George to be so popular, so I didn't include much info. So, for the F.O.G.s - Fans of George - he is about 5 feet tall, so if he stood up he'd be closer to 7 or 8. He lives in a formal, gated courtyard between two local businesses, and can just be glimpsed from the street as you drive by. I was startled the first time I noticed him, and resolved to come back someday and peek through the fence from the sidewalk. I finally made good on the plan this week.

If you like George, you'll love this: Along Life's Highway: The Yard Art Game. Check it out and join the fun!

I don't know. Nothing says Valentine's Day like a large gorilla lawn ornament. I want one for my yard.

This is on someone's lawn? Huge!
I have a small wooden bear on my porch but this guy would be quite impressive. :)

I have to admit, I kinda want one too.

Jama, just tell me where to send it and I'll be happy to ship you a boatload o' snow. We're sick of the stuff.

He's sensational .. is he on public property or someone's snow covered lawn?

Carver said...

What a fun shot. I like George, he's so whimsical and solid all at once.

This is a fun idea...but any yard art here is buried....

Your yard art may be buried under snow but you all could still be spectactor's in the competition. Pick a favorite player or a favorite item to route for. I am a big seahorses birdbath fan.
