time for a tin man
Before taking those cast-off bits of metal, pipe and corrugated iron to the tip, consider them as possible materials for an all-weather scarecrow. It’s amazing what quirky configurations can be created from what is basically junk, and all you need to support it is a few garden stakes driven into the ground. You don’t even need to paint your scarecrow. Leaving the metal bare to the elements will produce a nice rusty finish as displayed on this wonderful tin man at central Victoria’s Blackwood Ridge Nursery & Gardens.
