Tin Man

Tin Man

Our Tin Man was constructed from various tins and other junk we collected. The total cost was the price of a can of silver metal spray paint!

Amazing! I bet your kids don't bother watching Blue Peter when their dad can do so much more with old tins :)

I think that this tinman is great and that you are very clever to construct it out of rubbish. This shows your artistic side David. He looks very happy and, after his visit to The Wizard of Oz, with Dorothy, the Lion and the scarecrow he has received his wish. Lindak.

Many thanks, Lindak! In the original story, the Tin Man trod on a beetle on the YBR and squashed it. He cried so much that he rusted. The Great Oz showed him that he, therefore, had a heart all along. To reflect this in our garden, I got the kids to create little log and twig piles nearby as minibeast shelters, so that they could investigate for themselves.

many,many thanx, Jacque, for your comments. We're glad you enjoyed our pics.Have taken note of your heron guardian to pass on to a neighbour, who loses his fish to a real one (or ones) fairly often.

Hi Sewingkilla! We never opened to the public, but people were welcome to walk around, even when we were out. We actually moved home c.8 weeks ago, and so have a whole new garden and theme (for quickness, go to my homepage and click the garden tab at top of page, then select one of the listings to view related pics). Many thanks for all your kind comments!
