Dickosaurus or other people's gardens

Most of us plod around our gardens doing the best we can with our limited imaginations and overstrength weedkiller. So it's always a pleasant surprise to go somewhere people are not struggling with both of those things. Behold Dickosaurus! (Go on, look closely). Carved from a single oak branch, with bright green glass eyes, a snappy tail and a fertility seat barely big enough for two.

Rather more upstanding in several respects is this wonderful cast iron and glass sculpture tucked away among the tree ferns. And of course there's lots of other arty little knick-knacks around the place. Bravo to all you imaginative gardeners out there. Us plodders salute you!
