Yard art, and my garden buddies

Kaylee checking out the poppies.

Cody helped me pull weeds for about..... 90 seconds, but he's definitely interested in helping pick the tomatoes and cucumbers...

We finished another yard bird last night. This one was for Debbie, whose husband and father supplied me with some old tools and machinery parts.

Got any wings?

Here is our newest yard bird. Cody has named him mohawk, since he is sporting a mohawk... He needs some wings, but I don't seem to have the right "junk" for wings at this moment. Any ideas of what would make the perfect wings for Mohawk? Got any scrap metal wings???

Here's an awesome old bench I found at a yard sale for $10. It's 8' long, but I think I'm going to cut it down to fit under my greeen metal arch my the kitchen window... Since the end is damaged I need to cut it down a bit anyway in order to fix it so it's strong enough to actually use.
