Nothing Special

Or is it? A garden hose I can no longer use, as it won't fit any of my taps now; every so often, I think I've found an adapter that will work, and it comes out of the cupboard, only to go back in when it still won't connect...

But how delightful does it look, coiled on the remains of my Eucalyptus tree? I think it deserves its five minutes of fame, despite lack of function

Ah yes it does! Isn't it interesting that everyday objects can take on a unique type of beauty? I think this applies to your garden hose!

You could cut it up to beat people with ... like smart alec commenters.

AC! I never had you down as a sadist! LOL :)

Ha, yes a perfect fit. An inspiration to all those unusable yet saved items around each of our residences.

The eye that can see the beauty in "nothing special" is a very special sort of eye. I now feel utterly validated in leaving all that old, unusable hose around (in decorative coils, of course . . .).

:) Yes, it is famous now.

I wish Ada thought the same about my lack of function...

It just occurs to me now, after some 50 years of seeing coiled up garden hoses, that cutting one up into varied sizes (after it has outlived its usefulness, of course) and then rearranging them by gluing or otherwise attaching to a board might make a very interesting art project.

Jinksy said...

By golly, Suldog, I think you have a good idea there. If you lived a bit closer, I'd give you mine to experiment with! LOL

I totally agree. It makes a colourful picture indeed.
