Garden Gift Ideas

What with the holiday season approaching, many of you are probably wondering what to buy for the Phactor, so here's a garden gift idea. While searching through image files this nifty item turned up and once again was moved onto the "things of beauty and a joy forever" list of potential acquisitions. To explain, things of beauty and joys forever must fundamentally be big and heavy, and ideally found rather than purchased, but since this is unlikely, let's forego that stipulation. Such items figure into a personal gardening philosophy which is that people wandering through our gardens should find delightful things, surprises, hidden away to be discovered, like our 200 lb sleeping sow garden bench. So yes, the Phactor really, really wants an elephant downspout, maybe two.
