there's a dragon at the bottom of our garden



my husband is into dragons. REALLY into dragons, not the kind of scary dragons you find in smoking paraphanelia shops alongside the skulls and naked babe ashtrays, but magical and mystical ones. we have a dragon of one sort or another in every room in the house. this intrigues kids when they visit the house and armed with the task of finding them, they can spends hours searching. the garden has its dragon too. it's finally sprouted all its leaves so it has a body now and its not just a skeleton. it always proves the last dragon to be found. In autumn the oak tree to the right glows and provides the fire from its mouth. I must say, the head is looking in need of a prune, its looking a bit like a kangaroo!

Wow, a wine cellar, an (almost) wood-fired pizza oven AND a dragon! Can I come and live at your house?

I am mildly into dragons, more of a dragon appreciater than a collector/wearer/decorates with dragons kinda person.

I agree with Julie - I wanna come and visit your place!

And the garden dragon does need a haircut - are you game?

LOL and i think he wouldnt let me within a mile of the topiary with some shears!

I like dragons! This is Killi of the duck comment about mystery chicks. I've left this comment in my other guise so you can see the dragon I drew for a friend ~ it's on the header. I 'd love to know if you hate this dragon. My childer are 1/2 ish Welsh, so I have to love dragons (pity their father wasn't eaten by one, though)
