My new neighbor is an antiquer and she sometimes brings me things she thinks I might like.
Problem is, neither of us knows what it is. It’s pretty big (about 4 ft. across), made of wire, and was found near a barn.
We are guessing it has something to do with hay?
I have two questions:
1. What in the world is it?
2. Do you have any suggestions of something neat to use it for in the garden?
Help, Able Reader.
UPDATE: Thanks to Greg and Laurie (via email), the mystery is solved. It’s a wire tree basket, used for transporting balled and burlap trees. Like these: http://www.centralohiobagandburlap.com/c-13-braun-wire-tree-baskets.aspx
Still thinking of ways to use it in the garden, maybe as a plant support/cage? Still open to suggestions.
Thanks everyone, for your input. It looks bigger in person than it does in the photo. I should have put something next to it for comparison when I shot the pic.
