Or a rusty wood stove insert used as a planter box.
This old bucket is waiting for its next tenant.
An old watering can just sitting there collecting rain water.
Stepping stones to nowhere and back.
They give the allusion of good things to come.
And barrels strategically placed to gather rain water.
And to offer a hiding place for the peanuts the mice hide underneath....
Even a bird bath can be yard art when it's dry.
One of my favorite pieces is this old garden plow that was my husband's great uncle.
And the old, rusty bucket looks perfect perched on a stump.
Bird houses are a must in any garden.
Especially those perched on a mossy stump.
They're just decorative; birds don't nest in them.
Even a large basket can be used as yard art when flipped on its side and filled with sedums.
