Anyone else have anything in their yard besides holes? I still have the pink flamingo out. What is the most unusual thing you have seen in someones yard?

I don't know what's out there. When the snow melts in April I usually find all kinds of interesting and sometimes disgusting and smelly stuff.

When I lived in Gulfport Mississippi we used to see a lot of bath tub Madonnas. For some reason folks down there would bury half of an old steel clawfoot tub and place a statue of the Virgin Mary in the part above ground.

I don't think there's anything odd in my yard right now but I'm sure my dog has left a nice surprise out there for a special someone :D

Empty garden plots that in no time will be full of hops and barley along with some less nutritional edibles:D

A small number of wild turkeys, and a varying number of white tail deer.

A number of years ago after a winter of unusually deep snow, spring came with a surprise. It seems that a muskrat from our pond had burrowed in the snow and happened upon the chain link fence about a foot off of the ground and proceded through. That's where he died, unable to proceed forward or backward. Not knowing when he had stranded himself there I used a large stick to poke at the carcass. Good thing I did because he was a gelatinous mass inside that hide making it easy to dislodge him and allow the spillway to carry him away!! BTW, my girls were about 8 and 10 at the time and I can still hear them squeeling with disgust. :eek::D
Later,

I drove past an old guy's front yard that was packed with old windmills...
Just the top sections of those big windmills people used to pump water on farms.
He must have at least two dozen of them all in working order, spinning with the wind.
