    photos.   I would like to add a little whimsy to my shed.  It has a front door and two windows and it own flag hanging (usually seasonal).  Something that would bring a smile to someone's face.  I do have a very tiny ceramic legs of the wicked witch in the corner but cannot be seen.  

    Do not adjust your mind, there is a flaw in reality.

      you might just want to ask High Uintas to that subject - sigh :)
      But I have everything in my garden what you can imagine - an old wine rack where I am trying to grow a grape vine around - colorful glass bottle meet an old meat grinder filled with soil and seed - baskets filled with evergreen as well as herbs - old wine barrels with painted chairs in front where baskets or big old pots are filled with soil to give tomatoes and herbs room to bloom - broken pitchers can be filled with soil and add color to your garden - rocks and dried wood pieces are a perfect hideaway for frogs and insects - glass marbles and tipped over jars - an old macrame stringed for planters is hanging from a tree but i placed a wooden round in there and it turns out to be a perfect table next to the hammock ........ I could carry on if I would remember what I all have - as I said I am a little crazy - and I believe you can use EVERYTHING in a garden.
      Have fun searching in your house basement and garage and attic for long forgotten items and simply bring them outside - you will be amazed

          Sorry - now is Missy's Brother's style something good - something bad? Sigh
          I am serious - that is an expression or a person I don't know. Is this out of a movie - TV show?
