Front Yard Art Installations

IMG_1075

How cool is this tree trunk truck sculpture? (try saying that five times fast!) This is in someone’s front yard on the way to Steve’s work! It’s mostly trucks, but I spotted at least one airplane, and a little alligator peeking out; he’s towards the bottom of the pile! It got me thinking about how long this family has been collecting and building this amazing installation, and what the story behind the different trucks are. One of my favorite aspects about this work of art, is that it’s  made from recycled items that would have otherwise ended up in a landfill. Here are some other works of art, right in their own front yards!
