Bicycle in the Pond





You might be forgiven for thinking that I’d overshot the road and ended up in the pond!  In actual fact I spotted this bicycle sitting elegantly in the water as I cycled past this morning.  It has been carefully placed in situ and I just had to stop and take a photo.


(At the rate my cycling is going at the moment I can see my bicycle ending up as a decorative feature very soon.)


 
Monique has also been decorating her garden and has added a funky chicken next to her plastic topiary ball.  It's all very jolly in this part of the world.

  1. Lovely summer colours. I do not like statues in home gardens. I prefer that rooster to snow white and the seven dwarves. :)

    1. Big garden statues are a bit pretentious unless you live in a stately home.

  2. Like the chicken, adds a seasonal touch of colour ! I'm not keen on statues either, but we do have a very superior stone Egyptian cat, (which we transported all the way from the UK), sitting on the terrace.
    Have you decided what colour you'll paint your bike!!

  3. We have many bikes of this nature around here, left after the Tour of Britain passed this way last year, and many gaily painted bikes still remain in hedgerows and on fences. I like the cockerel. I like obscure colourful objects and had a series of pots "planted" with barbie dolls at my previous house in amongst the tomato plants.

  4. looks like there is plenty of sunshine. Love the rooster, not so keen on the bike. Not at all fussed on statues in the garden but a little garden art in amongst the flowers in the garden can add a bit of interest sometimes. Sounds like you are happy to be back ??
