What's on your...

...PATIO!!!

Most folk have things like tubs of flowers, some ornaments or a nice comfy bench - not me. I look out onto my patio and see this...
...and 'this' has sat there for about two years.
It was obviously a 'must have' for hubby & his mate when they had their charter business but as far as I can tell it hasn't been used for about 4 years or more. It has moved - after complaining about the view from the lounge - or lack of, because this blocked it - it was taken to reside at my FILs. This was super, it didn't cause anyone any problems as it was on a side piece of ground next to my FILs bungalow and was not overlooked. Unfortunately my FIL passed away so it came back here to live...and here it has sat ever since.

The view did change slightly this winter as it was covered in a huge dirty white tarp to protect it from the elements but now it has been uncovered again.

I am so hoping that a new home can be found for this before the nice weather arrives as it would be really rather super to sit out on the patio without this shadowing everyone from the sun................................

An unusual garden ornament, to say the least! :)

I never expected to see a boat on your patio!! :) I can completely understand the hope for nice weather and being able to sit outside - good luck with your mission of getting it moved ;)

Well I'm surprised you've not had a go at "altered art" on it LOL. On a knitted cover LOL

This isn't the first time there has been a boat in my back garden. There have been small sail boats from time to time but they have never stayed long and were never 'parked' so close to the house.

A bit of altered art did cross my mind but I somehow don't think it would be appreciated LOL

Toni :o)

I agree you should decorate it, turn it into a giant flower bed as well. He will soon move it then :-D I'm such a lovely niece hehe
