RE: using junk in the garden

Donna, some of those old hub caps might look a bit like metal flowers if you
painted a yellow center on them and stuck them on a stake.  And the bowling
pins!  What fun to put them apart, looking much like a split and if you have
an OLD bowling ball, put it half way down a strip border!  You might as well
have fun with them!  (I've also seen hubcaps shined up and used as ornaments
on privacy fences the way plates are sometimes hung on walls.  

Only you can tell if you'd like some humor in your landscape.  :>D

Subject: [CHAT] using junk in the garden

Using junk in the garden:

As I attempt to continue to clean out the garage.... Found tons of old
hub caps from the 50's?... So! Anyone have any ideas of what to do with
them in the garden? I keep looking at them (since they are the fancier
type and actually in good shape) thinking I should not put them in the
garage sale cause no one is going to buy them- maybe on e-bay, but not
from my front lawn....

Also found a couple cases of bowling pins.....

Thoughts anyone?

Break is over, back to sorting and cleaning.... I keep asking DH where
did this stuff come from! Can anyone say pack rat!... found 7 snow
blowers plus the garden tractor has a blade, I drive a snow plow truck
and DH doesn't want to add anything to the sale.... urgh!:)
