Visitor Tips and News About 12-Foot-Tall Topiary Dragon Mailbox
My native wildflower gardens are the start, the 12 ft. tall Dragon Mailbox gets its picture taken over 100 times a day by motorcyclists and visitors to the Cherohala Skyway, which I live on. Will be opening the property in Spring to visitors with a complete topiary and sculpture shop tour. Wild stuff like a bent over lady greets visitors after they spy the Dragon...[Joe Kyte, 10/04/2009]
