Redneck Garden Faeries

I admire blog posts of beautiful garden vigniettes--
flowers growing with seemingly wild abandon, but obviously carefully tended.
There are artistically assembled found objects and rusted pieces that give the viewer the pleasant feeling that fantastical creatures dwell in that garden.
Now my garden is just wild and abandoned.
The mystical beings muck about in the weed beds driving monster trucks.
Large, heavy construction machinery is forgotten in the pursuit of fishing or lounging on the couch (watching NASCAR races) and drinking beer, I am guessing.

Every age and make of vehicle is kept, because someday it will be fixed and made to run again (good intentions).
Or the vehicles are kept "for parts".
The faeries in my garden are decidely not mystical,
although they are charming in their own, rough-around-the-edges, way.
