Tyge-Time to Retire

We have a garden of palmettos in our back yard.  When we built our home 10 years ago the builder’s wife told me palmettos were almost impossible to get rid of; so I decided to grow a palmetto garden.  Why fight mother nature!!

Our oldest granddaughter was playing in the yard by the palmettos and she told me there were tigers in this yard-because the palmettos are tropical jungle plants.  So her granddaddy had me buy a plaster yard tiger statue to live in the palmettos.  Lydia named the tiger, Tyge.

Well, that was 10 years ago and poor Tyge has not improved with age. . .

I have tried to throw him out once before and Lydia got him out of the trash.  So my predicament is, should I retire Tyge. 

Here are some recent photos of Tyge.

Well, what do you think should Tyge be retired?  Lydia, let me know what you think!

    You can retire him,I suppose. But if you do, a new animal would be nice. Otherwise, who would play with us when we go outside, and who would protect you when we’re not there?

    Okay, darling, maybe we can go shopping for one next time you come for a visit. I am sure your GrandDaddy would buy you a new one.
