Rusty Love and the Octopuses Garden
“The Vancouver Sun” brought an article about the huge rusty metal art and architectural use in the City, that made me very happy because…….. that is what I like.

small and big bird meandering through the yard
On our property in the Kootenays we had a section of the acreage designated for my collection and called it Octopuses’ Garden.
(a large tree root decaying in the sun, did give it that name, it had the look of a many armed monster)
Visitors did a lot of head shaking while walking along the narrow pass but some stayed for a while sitting on one of the benches along the way to figure out what is so exiting about this reconstructed bicycle for instant or this strange metal recycled contraption on a pole.

Sorry to say I had to leave most of it behind when it was time to move on.
Life is what it is
