Garden guard?


Not long ago, while on a bike ride through the neighborhood, we noticed one of our neighbor's had a wonderful backyard garden. So, we stopped to take a picture.

Would you believe this guy stepped out from the bushes and gave us a stern warning to stay away?

Fortunately a cat happened to dart across the street and captured his attention so I could capture him on camera.

Isn't this one of the Chinese Eight Eternals guarding this garden? Careful he can be very quick.

Actually, Lowell, no, I wouldn't.

I'd ask what you'd been smoking, but then you're in Florida, aren't you? Bad boy!

Just kick him....he'll crack. ;)

Don't fight him; one never knows what lurks in the garden of good and evil!

He should be proud of his labour and invite you in to get a better look!

Be careful, those garden gnomes are quick with a sword.

What was he doing in the bushes? He might not want you to see THAT!
Maybe he thought you were a peeper. Could ruin a guys reputation---if he had one to begin with.
dome dandy pics where did I say that?

He looks as though he could be a master of stern warnings. Thank goodness for cats.

He'll be watching for you next time -- I wouldn't try that again!
