Here be dragons......






With steely eyes and dangerous claws....




...a powerful tail




.... and teeny tiny friends.




This gentle soul (most of the time, don't ire her!) is Penelope, and she guards the northern approach to the city of Yreka from all dangers that might come her way. Her maker is local sculptor Ralph Starritt.

oh! love these!!...are they permanent?

We have a place nearby where the owner has created creatures for YEARS and now has acres of wondrous fanciful animals. You've inspired me to go visit and share :)
