The one that turned out best is my alligator. I have the wire form stuffed with green moss and he is planted up with a variety of succulents. Usually he resides by the walkway that leads to our side door.

This is not the best photo of the giraffe, so I'll have to get a better viewpoint. But it is growing directly in the garden and the ivy came back from last season. I was surprised about that. It may be due to the early and heavy snow cover we got so early in the season. The snow probably acted as an insulator.
