My have a go duck

My have a go duck  (Lonicera)

This is just one of my attempts of doing my own topairy I had hoped it looked like a duck sitting on a nest but sadly I have had mixed opinions on that lol. I made it with some chicken wire of which I should really have used something more steady as it's really too flimsy. On the plus side unlike box that is so very slow to grow into any shape the Lonicera I used for this design is so much more quicker to use.

this looks like a fun idea, i just dug one of these (lonicera) up out of my garden and put into a pot - as it just did'nt look right where it was, was wondering what to do with it - i might have a go myself! - did you buy the chicken wire duck or did you make it?

Eggbox sweetie I'll load up another picture of my chicken today for you I'm sure you're all going to get so bore of me and my pictures sooner or later! Lol

It is a fun plant Jacque I also have a grey kind of colour one just waiting for its 'make-over'.

Yes Majeekahead very fun ideed I'm planning for the future (grandkids hopefully a long time off as yet) but as I loved having our other 'old' garden child friendly I'm planning this one to be even better, all of our gardens are going to have something that will enchant children no matter how old they are!

The duck was made by myself using chicken wire and some slightly stonger wire for the supporting frame after searching the web for ideas and is very easy to make you just have to close one eye while you are making it and imagine what it's going to be like all filled in.

Can you imagine what a great place the 'nest' would be like at easter time for the little ones on a egg hunt? Blooming eggmazing! ;0)
