I found this wood post at a rummage sale. $2! How could I pass it up? LOL It's the end of summer...I start back to teaching in 2 weeks. Wah! :o) Anyway, my creative juices have now sloooowed down. So...what would you do with this wood post if you were to use it in your gardens? I would love any ideas from a creative bunch of garden junkers! Thanks for any ideas! Bear Hugs! Kirk

I liked your other bird feeder, maybe you can make this one a feeder too. ORRRR a hummingbird feeder with arms to hang the feeders on, I love when my hummungbirds all try and get their sugar water at the same time and they buzz all over me. Maybe you can drill some holes on top to put some of those sparklers in, it would than become a BLING HUMMINGBIRD FEEDER. It is almost 2 am, got to go nite nite

Great ideas, Sylvia! Love the hummingbird feeder idea. The post looks large in the picture but is only 4 feet tall which limits me some for feeders. It's after 4 a.m. here...woke up thinking about this project! LOL Thanks for the ideas! Bear Hugs! Kirk

A mini bottle tree. It would be very symmetrical and you could use small bottles.

Scroll down to the agave picture to see one in the link below.

I have been looking for a similar post to make a gardening angel to put on a piece of 8-foot rebar on my slope garden. I would add various suitable pieces of iron work for the wings, halo, hair. etc., half-round wood trim for arms. That's what "I" would do.

Drill hole in top to hold a two-sided clock, I have one in my yard, on the shed, saves steps, do not wear a watch.

Then add a coat hook on the side, the days are coming when you will wear a light coat to garden in and once you get going it gets too hot and off comes the coat. Unless it is going to rain you could leave a coat and hat on the hook for the next time you go out in the garden and there is a chill in the air. A second hook could hold small garden tools or a tool pouch.

I'm thinking

I have a similar one by my front walk that has a decorative bird on top, then a birdfeeder attached to the side...the saucer type of feeder rather than the tube type. Whatever you come up with, I'm sure it will be great!

Get some heavy duty springs from farm or auto junk sales and dangle blue bottles and tractor junk like brake pads or even tools from the springs to bounce in the breeze
