BRING Home and Garden Tour

About 2 weeks ago, my mum and I went to a local garden tour hosted by BRING recycling.  Here are some highlights.

That's an outdoor shower.  After seeing this, Chad desperately wants one, and I too think it would be AWESOME!

Someday I would like a shady, lounging spot, with much foliage abounding.
This is was a cob building.
 The gardener used this wood for growing mushrooms.
 HONEYBEES.  Chad will have honeybees at some point in his life.  There is no question.  I learned that if you join the local bee club that you can use the honey extratractor thingy for free!!!
 I LOVED this idea for succulents etc.  It's just plain ol' cinder block, filled with plants that brim over the edge.  They used it on the outside of an outdoor building. 

 This garden also featured a natural house.  I don't know the details, but it was cool.  I felt like I was in Star Wars IV.
 This house was very intriguing.  The front walkway was lined with all these funky, recycled art pieces. 
 But then it got WEIRD.  They had a huge shed full of....what should I call it....tacky junk?  It was creepy, bridging on inspiration for a horror movie.
 My favorite piece was the rake with the barbie heads.

 This is all the same house.  They're very quirky.  I LOVED it, but there was a bit too much going on, and Mumsie and I were getting worried about these people's sanity.

The coolest fire pit ever.  Chad said I shouldn't share this pic with anyone, because he didn't want anyone to know where we got the idea when we totally copy them.  Sorry hon, had to share, it was my favorite part.

Outdoor oven.
The rainbow of drying clothes.

Guest yurt. 
Outdoor cooking yurt thingy.  My mom and I didn't get it.  Why?  It was roasting in there.
