I did get a few garden veggies.
I made a delicious tomato sandwich for brunch and we enjoyed grilled squash, onions and cucumbers for dinner.
So it was not a complete waste of time.
See those metal rings leaning against the whiskey barrel?
They are all that is left from a full-size whiskey barrel that fell apart a few years back. This old barrel was my favorite deck container. It filled this corner perfectly.
I wanted to throw them away last year as they have just been sitting in the garden shed. DH kept them even though I could not think of a thing to do with them.
A couple of weeks ago on Jean's Blooming Tuesday, I visited a blog that showed a whiskey barrel sphere she had made from these rings. I have been searching for the past hour and I cannot find the blog to give due credit! I remember that I left a comment to the effect that I had the same rings and thanks for the idea. If it was your blog, PLEASE let me know so I can add a link to your post!
I have mentioned numerous times that my DH is not really the handyman type. We have a nice big tool chest in our garage, but there is nothing in it but old sheets to cover plants when we have frost predicted or to toss on the ground when I am spray painting.
Nonetheless, I told my dear husband about the cool garden art that was made from these metal strips and within a few weeks, he had gone to the hardware store and purchased some bolts/screws and a drill bit for metal. One of the few tools we do own is a drill
Just look at my hunky hubby wielding that power tool!
After a short time he had my new garden art completed.
What a great idea for those otherwise useless metal rings! I am tickled that he was able to complete this project so easily!
I even moved Fergie to this area to complement the orb.
