A COUPLE’S garden is full of random objects including a stone frog playing a guitar and some sort of archway, it has emerged.
Teacher Martin Bishop and his wife Sarah have spent years acquiring items of outdoor tat for reasons that neither of them can adequately explain.
Bishop said: “When you’ve got a garden you feel you should put weird stuff in it. For some reason I spent a day installing an archway on the garden path, but it doesn’t lead anywhere except a rockery containing some badly moulded plastic fairies that light up.
“It’s ironic because our house is quite tastefully decorated, yet the garden is full of junk, like a metal dragonfly.
“The strangest thing is the sense of achievement now we’ve put arbitrary objects everywhere, so maybe £24.95 for a concrete rabbit pushing a wheelbarrow wasn’t a rip-off after all.”
Sarah Bishop said: “I think they pump hallucinogens into the air at the garden centre. It’s the only explanation for us putting a large fountain depicting the Greek sea god Poseidon in our pond.
“Still, the swinging garden seat is great for sitting on while trying not to spill your drink.
“And the wooden bees on sticks are fun. Or are they? I have no idea.”
