A Garden Junk Sculpture I assembled using a lovely chipped painted metal rooster, an old wash bin (yorkie Krumpet refuses to stay in it) and a heavy gear of some sort I picked up on the side of the road. Just my kind of thing, do you like it?

Howeve, after reading the others' comments, I can also see taller grasses in the back of the tub, with herbs in the front or different colored flowers and greenery in the front. I too, found a tub like you have and an waiting for next spring/summer, to plant my herbs or flowers in it.

I can also see you adding a wind chime onto the upper part of your lovely little chipped rooster piece. Not sure how you'd add a piece of metal to the rod, but I'm sure there'd be a way to do it.

Lastly, the gear gets an A+ in my book. What I wouldn't do for that little number in my garden!!!


Enjoy the piece ~ it is wonderful. gailmarie Posted: 2:26 pm on October 11th

oldnews writes: Love it! I can picture flowers in the tub too, or I have one on my front porch with a small pond pump so that it makes the perfect trickling water sound. Great save on the roadside find!! Marie Posted: 11:46 pm on October 10th

Hope you had your back brace on while picking up the heavy gear! I can see flowers spilling out of the tub!
