If you're like me, you have bought an aquarium and all the decorations only to grow tired of all the effort of maintaining it. Why not turn that old aquarium decoration into something of beauty to enjoy in the garden?

Clint I just love this new purpose for aquarium decorations. The tree roots/stump are beautiful. Now I will have to start watching for things like that at yard sales. Smiling

You are so right about getting tired of maintaining aquariums. Now I wish I didn't give my stuff away...Good idea to check yard sales. That looks great!
