    Actually they are concrete but that would ruin my alteration. Also probably not perfectly placed.
    Anyway this is a pair of concrete penguins in rather rough shape, one is missing his beak and they both need repainting. But my yard is not easy on the lawn décor so not so important. Bright sun and harsh winters and so on.
    These penguins are about 9" tall. I believe they are metal reinforced. They have many cracks but still stand straight.
    Currently they are in about the center of the yard at the base of the plumb tree.
    The last photo shows them were their new friends.

      I like your yard ! Looks like easy to maintain and no grass to mow. :)

      I figured you were on an alliteration kick as soon as I saw the title (either that or you wanted us to say it 5 times fastly..lol).

      Seems like they would have some 'heft' to them.

      What a happy neighborhood they got to "join".

      Thank you very much nutsabotas6. Generally take a weed whacker to it once a year.

      Thank you very much KarenLR71. They are solid concrete with rebar so they are rather heavy. Thre are over 20 gnomes plus some concrete and cast iron animals.

      All those are cool! I just recently got my sister a cement chicken.

      Thank you very much iggy. Cement animals and gnomes are always a fine gift.
