Our new 'Welcome' junk bed

Some of you know that for the past year we've been constructing a new driveway on our property and we've finally gotten to the point of doing some landscaping. Well, what driveway is complete without some garden junk? So, we pulled one of my Dad's old plows up and DH took some old barrel rings and made them into a garden sphere for me...thanks Jeannespines for the inspiration on that! Added some new knockout roses and muhly grass that should look good in a few months after it gets established. We even have one of DH's spider creations hanging out in there.

That looks great!! I wish I had our old horse plows!! I grew up on a tree nursery and we used horses to plow when I was little. And where do you guys find barrel rings!!

Love the plow & sphere & welcome sign, would look good from porch in front looking out to road,too! Grass will fill in & give it finished look! Will keep people from cutting corners to get on your driveway too! Jan

Awesome arrangement-the bed looks great!
I have had my barrel hoop sphere and my
plow since 2003-just repainted the sphere
this year-have put linseed oil on the OLD
handles of the plow but they are fading fast
with our humidity and rain, and unforunately
will soon be gone.
EX... we had 14 inches of rain last Saturday-
that was a lot even for us and there was
flooding here. We have had some rain every day since.
