Tyred Mornings

Someone seems to have dumped these tyres in a sort of lay-by near the railway a short distance from where my son works. The really interesting thing about this is that each morning I go to turn the car round here, all the tyres have moved to a different part of the lay-by!

That's quite the heap of tyres. They can be the devil to get rid of, so it's not surprising to find stealth tyre dumpings.

Around here, they are used for fence marking, roof weights and one man in Bismarck built a fence out of lattice and tyres. It's pretty cool looking. Here in Almont, someone has a massive tire tractor as a flower planter, and someone else cut up a tire tractor for swingset seats. :D

there are uses for tyres if you look for them - i like the fence idea - but maybe these tyres are so used to being on the road they just can't settle down?

Perhaps they're just tired after all that rolling around in the night. Very mysterious. I like the idea of swing seats. There should be more swings generally, such good fun.

Good shots, these. I have some trugs in the garden made from recycled car tyres. They are surprisingly pleasant to feel! So I bet Maggie D's belt is lovely. Swing seats are good too. Woman opposite us has painted four tyres white and planted stuff in them - I'm afraid they look absolutely awful! Good try though. My son makes spectacular (would I be biased?) ornamental planters out of hubs.
