I'm new to DG and just found this forum. I posted these pics on Garden Art but I think this forum is more up my alley.
When my new roof went on, this old turbine came off and still worked fine; so I got a piece of conduit, painted the whole thing and topped it with a Christmas ornament spire! It is affixed over my garden gate and turns with the slightest breeze...
Just fashioned a small fence from the frame of an old dryer. It blocks the view of the hodge-podge of containers that hold trees and plants that are awaiting new owners or a decisions about their permanent location. There is a large plant in front of the fence so it's "casual" appearance is not very noticable; it does screen the pots while leaving the plants viewable.
My Best friend decided to move to WI and it was already Nov so we dug up all of her tulips etc and shipped them to me. I got them in the ground as soon as I could but it just wasn't long enough. Sooooo... I probably will never know how they did "next year" as I have accepted a job in another town and will be moving as soon as we get this house sold. Oh well.. another house, another garden.
