Watch for brake lights when driving the quiet lane past the Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin, home of Dale and Joan Jeanquart. It's hard for drivers to resist stomping on the brakes when they spot 12-foot-tall people striding through the yard. "They back up and sit awhile," Dale says.
Appropriately named Terra and Cotta, these "overgrown container gardens" stand on skeletons of concrete and metal piping. The giant couple and their dog, Francois, gain their regal stance from long-lasting German terra-cotta pots sprouting sedum, Plectranthus and ornamental grasses.
The pot people reign over a double lot brimming with the imaginative creations of Joan and Dale (a retired cop).
