There's A Dinosaur In My Chrysanthemums

There's A Dinosaur In My Chrysanthemums

Dinney the Dinosaur, 11 years in the making, is the first handsome brute in a garden of dinosaurs planned by his 78-year-old creator.
Anyone who passes by Cabazon, a little town a few miles northwest of Palm Springs on Interstate 10, can’t possibly miss the life-size model of a dinosaur that towers above the desert floor.
