This is LeBeau. Claudia and I acquired him at the Biltmore Mansion gift shop ages ago. He has had an active life in our garden ever since. He took an active part in one wedding although he would be even more embarassed by those photos being the grouch that he is.
Sadly, our winters have taken a toll on him. This is how he looked the other day as we began our spring gardening.
At least I got a good night’s sleep after seven hours of yardwork, planting and weeding. Poor old LeBeau is living his last nightmare.
