The yard currently has a Mothman, T.rex and a Venus fly trap. Amazing!

Yard Art: Nessy vs. Minions

The residential yard is full of metal art. There is a full-body Loch Ness monster, plus buffalo and Minions. Really beautifully done.

[The Dunlaps, 03/17/2018]

The sculptures seem to change frequently, perhaps as the artist-owner sells them. The big Nessy is probably permanent.
