Dennis Wilson has created a colorful and unusual bird sanctuary and garden.

"I have cultivated a small, 8 1/2’ X 10’ psychedelic garden and bird sanctuary that is about as special and unique as they come. It’s named ‘The Groucho Marx Bird Sanctuary and Psychedelic Desert Botanical Garden of Peace. I’m a photographer/musican/writer in my golden years. I am near 67 and retired. I’m an old hippie, Marine Corps Vet, rock and roll singer, stand-up comedian and I spend most of my free time on my little patio playing guitar and puttering around. Have a peaceful day.
