Ariss asked me what I meant by a garden dragon when I said I was painting the steel parts on it....and I wasn't sure if I've ever introduced the 300 pound critter who lives under my livingroom window.

Here is Jasper ~ in all his glory, with newly rust protected steel bits.

We bought him as a wedding anniversary gift to each other a number of years back and his sweet mug has been our house guardian ever since. When visitors ask directions to my house I usually mention that it's the one with the stone dragon out front....

...when they arrive they understand it's no ordinary garden statuary I speak of ;)

Funny thing about jasper (named such because he's made of rock composite)....my mother has about a dozen names for him, including Lucy...but refuses to acknowledge his real name, insisting that it doesn't suit him. *sigh*
  • Oh wow! he is very cool looking. I can see how he'd be a landmark of sorts.
    • Trust me...every kid in the neighbourhood knows about the dragon. The little ones in particular love pointing him out >D
  • He is a cute little guy. And looks just like a Jasper to me!
    • Thank-you. He's a cutie....a big cutie but still too gentle looking to be a real dragons' dragon. I imagine he says his own name with a lisp through those fangs too :)
  • *stares. blinks. blinks some more*

    That is sooo you! XD
  • *laugh* He is awesome and yet also so cute! *grin* He looks like a child-friendly dragon, instead of the fierce scourge of the land. ^_____^
