I happened upon this very cool website that has pictures of some great garden ideas.
I especially like the spoon flowers and the tire alligators!
The site is Dishfunctional Designs.

Well that is interesting because both are different and wonderful.!!! Love the succulents in the bird cage.

I have a few headboard gates but have never turned one sideways. Great idea.

I can see way too much time spent playing with my garden junk this year. LOL

Does any one have an idea for a 15 foot farm gate and a 6 foot tall by 10 foot long cyclone fence panel? I can clamp them together. or?????????

RE: Some great ideas

Oh yeah that is really cute and cool.

Shades you can use the tall fence panel in either direction as a wonderful trellis, lots of beautiful flowering vines could grow on that, even gourds then you can make bird houses from them.

I just saw a metal farm gate somewhere, I will try to find it. It was used in the garden too.

RE: Some great ideas

This is what I did with the farm gate before I had to change the kitty kennel. Now I can not do it this way.

I considered hooking the chain link panel to the corner of the kitty kennel as a wall to my new little patio but it would make snow removal too hard in the winter and this is the dogs yard too. There is more to it than what shows in the picture.

The new kitty kennel goes over the walk way that is under the clothes line in the picture. I removed that part of the walk way to make my patio. My patio is where the narrow part of the kitty kennel is in this picture. I really liked this arrangement but it had to move for the new house heater heat pump.

Will have to wait until tomorrow for a picture. I have done more since the last picture I took. I would like to paint the wood gate the color of the farm gate. Weather permitting. And I am not sure how much paint I have left.

spoon flowers

does anyone have instructions on how to make the spoon flowers...great idea


 o
RE: Some great ideas

Not yet but I am looking, if anyone finds out how please post.

Edit
I did find this one!
I want to find one with no welding if possible. My husband is the welder here and I don't see him helping me with this project. I might try the procedure but use the same GE ll silicon caulk I use for my totems. I would then have to wire the flower to the stake or rod. As soon as I find a bunch of spoons I am going to try it!
