It’s been a long time coming, but I finally posted new creations on the Yard Bird page. The Yard Bird sculptor has been busy. He has assembled shovels rakes and other garden tools into bird sculptures of many shapes and sizes.
It’s impossible to resist those adoring eyes when your Yard Bird snuggles up to you. Yard Birds have amazing charm.
When I visited, the artist had set out 25 new critters, and I photographed all of them. So far, I’ve added 13 of the new birds to the page, and I’ll add more in the coming week or so.
You’ll find Yard Birds with sad expressions, others looking happy, and still others showing wide-eyed wonder. Each will add a unique accent to any yard or garden.
This recent crop of sculptures includes garden shovels, snow shovels, leaf rakes, hand trowels, and cultivators. The whimsical lawn and garden sculptures represent birds both domestic and wild… and I’ve taken pains not to assign names that might bias you too much should you decide to take one home: you ought to be able to name your own garden sculptures.

Some people will stop at nothing to install a home kitchen garden. I hope you don’t have to dig in the floor of your cell to plant vegetables… but I’d understand the urge if it was your only reasonable option.
That said, I write a lot about gardening in small spaces. Many kitchen gardeners have no more than a windowsill or a clear spot on a counter in which to grow produce. Other gardeners find space on balconies, patios, porches, and decks to hold planters for herbs, greens, and, perhaps, more ambitious vegetables and fruits.
In acknowledgement of these determined gardeners, I’ve added links to the container-gardening sections of several on-line gardening stores. In the left margin of the page, look for the section titled, Planters. The six links in that section lead to plenty of planters. Find planters to match any decour in nearly every price range. Please have a look; you’re bound to find just the right container in which to grow your kitchen goodies.
Emphasizing Yard Birds
Yard birds are the coolest gardening-related objects d’arte I’ve ever seen. These clever creations are sculptures assembled from pieces of garden tools, farm machinery, and steel re-bar. The artist of the original Yard Bird lives in my home town, and has agreed to let me sell his creations on-line.
This web site features the Yard Birds store, but if you arrived on the site’s home page, you might easily overlook the link. So… I’ve added a photograph of a yard bird in the left margin of the site along with links to the Yard Birds page. Browse the selection and add a little whimsy to your garden.
If you like the Yard Bird stylings, but don’t see one that fits your decour, check back from time-to-time. I’ll add more designs as the artist produces them.
