Latest garden creations....quite the variety

Haven't created the Damsel Fly yet, but we're on the hunt for parts. DH has really been bitten by the creativity bug...no pun intended! Here are his latest creations.

First, meet shovel fish....a clown fish of sorts.

Next, we borrowed Robert's snail idea to create one of our own. Used a blade from a harrow (farm implement), two light globes and some cabinet knobs for eyes. DH created the leaf from a carbide saw blade.

Next is Rocky the turtle. He is made from a floor drain, railroad spikes and various other parts. DH decided to go for the whimsical look and even gave him tennis shoes....hoping to speed him up a little.

And lastly, Hector the mosquito has been on the forum before, but DH gave him a facelift.

How could I not love a PURPLE fish!! LOL. Its great, and so is the snail.
The turtle had me laughing with his tennis shoes.
The mosquito is a bit too realistic ;o) so I wouldn't want to run into him. Literally! LOL.

Your DH needs to have a DH Training Class, I know at least one who should take it!!
hugs, Karen

Those are great, really like the turtle with his sneakers and the mosquito. I have a pair of size 13 running shoes and parts for a roadrunner sitting on my welding table that I'd like to get to soon.
I also have a long list of honey do's taped to refrigerator by my DW. She's a tall Irish lass that gives DH training classes and I have a low threshold for pain. The roadrunner will have to wait awhile longer.
