We first saw Lyman Whitaker’s sculptures on a visit to Butchart Gardens in June 2011. We decided that one would be a beautiful addition to our backyard. It was difficult to choose the right one as they are all so beautiful. Our choice, Desert Flame, was perfect. It graces the slope down to the lagoon in our backyard. Now when we look out we not only see nature at its best (fish, alligators, osprey, herons, egrets, etc) we also see the serene and gentle rotating Desert Flame, fueled by the almost constant breezes coming off the lagoon. Thank you Lyman for such beautiful art!
