I don't know from flowers.

Usually I drift more to insects than flowers but I thought I'd try my own brand of garden "plate" flower.This one has the following parts:
1 large blue plate,
1/2 of a fan-blade screen,
1 blue glass candle holder,
1 blue glass draw pull,
1 small green dish,
1 decorative brass butterfly (painted),
1 base of a table lamp,
1 heat deflector from a water heater,
and misc nuts and bolts.

Cool Robert! Love the use of the fan cover and the green candleholder as a stem! Looks great!

Between the large plate and the mounting washer I used a rubber hose washer to absorb the tension of a tight screw.

Love it as usual. It has your spin on it.

With that fan blade screen, I bet this flower blows in the wind! You are the greatest recycler I know! TFS! Jeanne S.

Great!
I have everything to make one except the
heat deflector from the water heater.
Wonder how many months it will take me
to make one!?!
Procrastination!
