Fabulous Green Metal Tuteurs (Obelisks?)
A few weeks ago I was driving near Fenton, Michigan and happened upon some garden antiques for sale. I couldn’t resist buying these four tuteurs (some would say obelisks). They are easily eleven feet tall and each weighs 150 pounds. They will look fabulous in my quadripartite potager- one for each raised bed. (Goodbye blue bamboo and hello green metal.) They arrived by semi yesterday. My sons and I could just unload them off the truck. We would move them to the back with more help the next day.
I am not the only one who loves them, because today they were stolen! Right from my front yard. Now, this was no easy task. It took more than one person and a very large truck to do it. So my garden friends. Be on the look out for my missing tuteurs and call the Licking County Sheriff’s department. They’ll know how to find me. I guess my climbing beans can grow another year on my painted blue bamboo poles. Sigh.
