The Junk Yard
National Garden Festival's Open Gardens this past July, I went to see this junky garden in Lancaster, a small town/suburb of Buffalo. The gardener, Ron, is proud to show you around this wonderfully creative garden -- made of friends' cast-offs and garbage picking. It's hard to photograph because he's layered creative (re)use of stuff on top of layers of used stuff! One man's trash is another man's garden art...
|Tabletop sideways, funnels, driftwood, baskets, coat rack, tools, anything is ripe for garden art.|
|Did you guess what this is? A papason chair frame on top of two umbrella table stands.|
|A bowling ball on a newel post.|
|Coffee can, funnel and decorative doodad.|
