Cotton Pickin' Flower

tinfoilhatNovember 20, 2011

Flower made with piece from rood cotton picking machine used to get low hanging cotton on 2nd picking.

Flower made from fan shroud and metal box strapping.

Harvey Javelina, the reason I make and plant non-edible flowers.

I swear he must know the Javelina hunting season ended a couple weeks ago.

Well sure he does, he isn't dodging gunshot anymore! LOL! That yellow 1 really stands out, will jazz up the winter months when not much is blooming! Neat use for that fan front, never would have thought of it. TFS Jan

Did you paint the fan front? Or did you just happen to have an orange fan?

Love the flowers ! Harvey is cute, too. Haven't seen any yet, though I'm told they are around here.

I love the flowers! Very creative. I have never seen a Javelina before... kind of looks like my potbellied pig!

Now I don't think that Javelina is cute at all!! Maybe you should feed him some good IA corn! LOL!

Your flowers are bloomin' colorful! Nice recycling! You do know you may be sending a message to Jave ... "yellow ...proceed w/caution." TFS! Jeanne S.

Here's a Barnwood Bloom made w/some kind of fan(?), blade(?)...good ol' junk:

How funny ! I just picked up the same brass butterfly at a GW in Austin TX ! It's hanging on my fence.

Love your flowers tinfoilhat. Great use of the fan guard. I imagine the javelinas are like our whitetail deer and turkeys. They hide during hunting season or head into the city. If I were a javelina, I'd hang out in your yard too. It's so cool. lol

Love your Cotton Picking Flower! Don't need much care to keep it beautiful.
Just right for Arizona's hot summers.
