Found this last week at a GS couldn't resist it! It was originally rusty and green but I quickly saw it in a new life. Washed it up real good gave it a coat of primer and then painted the blossom hot pink and the stem lime and wa-la a "SPRING" Blossom!!

What a GREAT idea! STUNNING! Makes you stop in your tracks to look...then you start looking at everything in the garden. That's what garden art is about...gets us to stop, slow down, and take it all in. INSPIRING!!!! Love the color! GREAT IDEA! Last year, I kept passing an old rusty bedspring along a road...thinking garden art. When I finally thought to bring it home, it was gone. :o( Gotta act quickly and think later! LOL Thanks for sharing a beautiful creation! You could sell these! Bear Hugs! Kirk

Beautiful & brings out the pink veins in the leaves of the nearby plants. Was it all together like that or were they individual springs? Makes a great addition to your garden! Jan

It was all put together when I bought it. I think the lady saw a gleam in my eye and knew I WANTED it. It didn't have a price tag on it so with that gleam glowing brightly in my eye she chimed in $2.00 and of course I said SOLD! Didn't really want to spend that much but am glad I did as I really like the way it turned out. I think the springs may have been off of a trampolene or possibly a baby bed. They are very stiff and they appear to just be wrapped around a heavy iron post. Just wish the post would have been longer but I can inprovise that simple problem.

You are on a ROLL. OK, now THIS is my favorite thing you've done. What was it in it's past life - was it a yard ornament? I LOVE the colors. Bet it makes a SWEEEET! complement with your flamingo sparkler.
