Don't be fooled. Inside this thin coating of sweetness is a fiery core of total insanity.

Sculptures and Other Garden Art -- Woodinville Garden Tour

Hold onto your hats, there's a lot to see! (Hope no one gets bored.)

I loved this little sculpture of cat and kitten sleeping in the columbine. I have a great fondness for cats. I have two, but they seldom go outside, so I don't talk about them much. (I like dogs, but Nigel is allergic)

I'm not a big fan of most garishly painted garden gnomes, but I like this one, cuddling with a sleeping kitty.

This birdhouse tree is cool, a good way to use an old dead tree.

At first glance I thought this kitty was real.

This one was!

She was friendly, but desperate to get in the house, away from the people.

An interesting take on the proverbial pink flamingo.

This cluster of leaves on pipes is meant to look like a real Gunnera.

Bambi and his mom?

Frog prince leaping beside a stream

Sometimes crocs in the garden can be a bit kitschy, but this one works. Rather creepy.

Chess, anyone?

Sometimes just a piece of driftwood can make a statement.

When the stream is flooding, I bet this life-size nymph looks like she is rising out of the water.

Looks like this boy has caught a frog in the stream!

Bathing beauty beside a pond.

I didn't realize until I looked at my photo -- this life-size fairy looks like she's flying.

Hoping for some rare PNW sunshine.

If you sit next to him, maybe Mark Twain will read to you.

Art in the Japanese garden was minimal, as it should be. Stone and metal lanterns.

This interesting stack of stones was suspended in a tree.

The front door was the most ornate thing in the garden.

In the Japanese garden, the big stones were really the only art the garden needed.
