spring's yard art

One of the reasons we love yard art is because once the weather breaks, you can actually get out of the house to see it. This winter we were missing the smell of fresh cut lawns and the site of madonnas in the bathtub. Here's a few great web places to check out truly creative yard art in all its independent glory.

And here's a few finer publications available covering the origins, status, and future of yard art.
