Are those drawers? It's a cool photo. Heh, maybe I'll post a photo of our old living room furniture sitting out by the garage... *g*

They are indeed drawers! And I say go for it--clearly there is art to be found in unexpected places. :)

impromptu
The three drawers appeared out in the garden one morning, leaning against the old house like they had something to prove. They were empty, and scarred, and one missed its knob. The bushes and vines crouched close, but not too close, as if they still were not quite sure what to make of these sudden visitors. When I looked across the yard, standing at the window that morning, at first it seemed as if the drawers were holding court for some misfit furniture gathering, or perhaps were bearing witness to some garden adventure, known only to creatures smaller than I. Later that day, Jasper removed the drawers, and put them out for rubbish pickup. The next morning, the drawers were back, leaning against the old house, and the plants crouched closer. After several exasperating days of this - of moving the drawers to the curb, of beating back ever-persistent shrubberies, and of finding them returned the next day - we decided to let the drawers stay. By the end of the week, the plants had almost covered our silent sentinels (as we now call them); indeed, unless one looks carefully, one hardly notices three upright drawers at the bottom of the garden at all. I only tell you this because you looked, and because you asked. But I warn you: do not peer too closely. Peaches, the neighbor's cat, climbed inside the vines, and we haven't seen him since.
