Our very own Backyard Rust



If you rest, you rust..... Helen Hayes


It is not work that kills men; it is worry.
Worry is rust upon the blade.
Henry Ward Beecher


there is never a day I can't find beauty in our backyard. This past week the weather was perfect for pictures.

LOVE the rust! And you only had to go outside your door to find some. ;))

Gail said...

I absolutely love this.

I have admitted it, I am a lover of rust!

If you walk around my yard you will find rust, uh, art, in every flower bed.

I have an big wad of rusty wire in my front water garden, a plumbing pipe with a solar light in my fern bed. By my old water garden I have a tire filled with gravel, a rusty coil I liked and an old electric insulator. I even have a barbed wire wreath on the barn gate!

I love your rust and your new headed.

So glad you are feeling better.

I noticed your header the other day and meant to say how I loved it. I also love rusty things. There is so much beauty in them. Hope you're feeling better Sandra. Have a great weekend :)

Betsy Adams said...

Hi Cutie, Hope you are feeling better. We are home from several days at the beach. Had a wonderful time.

I agree that if 'we' REST, we RUST...

Happy Memorial Day.
Hugs,
Betsy

I like the rust mixed in with the ferns.

S. Etole said...

Wonderful light in these, too. So good to see you here again.

Ginny said...

What is this, anyway? Whatever it is, you have made it beautiful yard art. I noticed you changed the header a few days ago (glad you are taking it slow) and thought it was so pretty, and totally YOU! Especially the bright and shadow mix. The combination of the color and texture of the ferns and rust, awesome! It is like a famous designer stepped in and posted this...have you been hanging with Jonathan Adler?

Ginny said...

WELCOME BACK!!

Madi and Mom said...

MS you and I have been dealing with our own form of rust of late....LOL
I hope you are feeling better and your rust is disappearing.
Hugs Cecilia

This happened to us quite a few years ago. My husband went to the bank after me ranting and raving for quite a while....told them I said we are moving our money if I am not included on all communication. I really think it depends of whose name is first on the account.

Happy memorial weekend and we hope you are better. We really hope you can enjoy this long weekend. Have a serene Sunday and let us get some big easy on today,
Best wishes Molly

If you rest you rust - I have never head of that one. Hope you aren't rusting too bad.

Inger said...

Oh, and I just sat down to rest! Just kidding. I am so glad to see that you too have some rust in your backyard. I love the composition of the first picture. Also your new header.

A Quiet Corner said...

I could not agree more...beauty is everywhere....:)JP

Susannah said...

Good to see you back, dear!!!! I really do like some things with rust....depends of what it is! Your pics today are delightful!

Miss Debbie said...

Hope this post means you are feeling better!:-)

Ida said...

Oh your backyard rust is wonderful. Love the contrast of the rust with the green of the ferns. - A nice tribute to for Memorial Day.

I like the way you are able to see beauty in all places. Hope things are going better for you.

George said...

You're very good at finding beauty all around you, and I'm glad you share it with us. I hope you're having a great holiday weekend.

Eva Ason said...

I love the rust, and especially love the close up picture

Blackberry Lane said...

These are beautiful photos.

Ann Thompson said...

Love the rust. It takes an ordinary object and gives it character.
Happy Memorial Day

Rebecca said...

I think I am rusting, I better stop resting. :)

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Rust happening here too, Sandra, and not just on things...us too and that's why we are at the Y today.
Hope you are doing better with rest and meds

Maggie M said...

Very, very nice rust pictures. Sure hope you are doing better sweet Sandra. Still keeping prayers going for you. Hugs

DawnTreader said...

Strange isn't it how rust in one place can be seen as beauty and in another as decay and "junk".

Terri @ Backward B Ranch said...

I am so glad you are feeling better! I love rust too- especially rusty tin on top of old barns.

Mersad said...

Really great rust images. I also like texture in objects and how it can create richer images.

Kathy said...

I love rust too! In fact I think I have some in my back.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

It's good to see you! Hope you're feeling much better! Love your header photo and other 'rusty' images. I find very old things beautiful in their own way, even rusty objects. Have a great week!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Great photos.....

SquirrelQueen said...

Hahaha, we have a propane tank just like that one in our shed. You turned it into a work of art. I have a rusty container in one of my flower boxes, I can't bear to throw it away.

I love the first quote!

Rose said...

You can take anything and make a great post about it! And make ugly things look attractive.
