Creating Recycled Garden Art
up for a game of cards? I saw a round folding card table that
my neighbors had put at the curb for garbage pick up. When no one was
out to see me, I walked over and rescued it. It had a metal frame and
legs and a thin masonite round top covered in naugahyde, which is
simulated leather made from vinyl. After disassembling the table, I got the idea
of hanging the large round top on one of my outside house walls to
represent the sun hanging over my collection of plastic pink flamingoes.
I must point out that this setting is at a place in my garden where no
one can see it except me when I'm sitting in one of my favorite chairs
under the pink grapefruit tree.
The scene reminds me of one of those documentaries about
wildlife in Africa where the sun always seems enormous. Please note the
recycled broken ceramic tiles used as a mulch. By the way, I
saved the round metal frame and legs for a future project
