thank you, yorkie. Am always on the look out for more but never see anything like him anywhere. Got him in London years ago

14 Jul, 2010

 

I have never seen one like it, I like what I can see of the one next to it.

14 Jul, 2010

 

He's really cool! I think you have gone sempertastic mh!! :))

thanks, kaz, yes i think i must have too. Its probably cos I'm a little bit weird. When i see them, i just imagine (quite unwittingly half the time) that i'm 5cm tall and these are giant exotic trees. A little 'Borrowers' world. Nature's architectural landscape. See? Weird. I'm definately weird.

I love him.............

I think that's very imaginative MH....perhaps you have a children's novel or two in you?.erm.....Kaz?....is that me? ;S

Yes, Karen. Sorry. See, I thought - Karen = 'Posh version', Kaz, Kazza = the 'down tha pub version'. A term of endearment, see. I'll stop it immediately if you prefer (and keep it posh).

Thank you for your sweet comment, Milky. I thought he'd have a few admirers - wouldnt be right to keep him to myself.

He's great, cos he has a different expression wherever you move in the garden.

lol.....bad memories MH!.....funny, I've never had a 'down the pub' name.....been down the pub plenty in my time of course...but....well....always thought I was too boring to get a decent nickname.....perhaps it should be .....'posh'!! but then I would have to lose three quarters of my body weight to live up to that!! ;))

Love it !!

thanks bonkers, he looks like he's just cleaned his teeth but unfortunately he has a couple of little chips.

15 Jul, 2010

 

Its a sign of ageingTough !

I love him too, Let's see another side of him. I'd like to see another expression you mentioned. The chips give him more personality.

thanks southy, I will try and grab a rainfree moment and take another pic.

Oops sorry...meant to say "though" ! Senior moment !

Wow, love this pot! I think my dog would freak out if I put that on my patio. I have this little pig pot and it took her a while to stop barking and growling at it.

She must be a very territorial lass, Dene. She's protecting you. I didnt think this was scary, more theatrical, kinda Phantom of the Opera or 'old poet' kind of guy....... But then we each have different perceptions of everything. I also like the fact he doesnt answer back....... : )

Oh yes Mini !! Love 'im ! :~))

Pots with faces on, especially true to life ones, are so hard to find. He has such a genuine look about him. I am stuck at 4 face pots for ages. Every GC I go to I have a quick look.....and nothing to be seen.

thank you dorjac, if I see anything like him again, I will let you know where

3 Aug, 2010

 

He's a cute little guy, Mh. I reckon he needs a mate though so hope you find one someday soon :)
