Large metal arbor in no water zone
I want to decorate my empty area without vegetation. My rose collection is down to 102. That suits me, but I am not sure what to do with the large metal arbor that is very rusty and securely cemented in the ground.
It has four legs, and a rather attractive ornament at the top. If we remove the rust, and paint it, it will be ok, but I cannot figure out what to put in or around it.
The area inside the four legs is large enough for a whiskey barrel.
We are going to purchase some statues, and I could put a big dog or lion in it, but I am not sure how to possibly tie that in with any theme.
I cannot run electricity out there for lights, and do not know what to do with it. It was fine for roses or other plants, but we want this area to be water free.
Whenever I go online, I can find vendors, but no attractive ideas on how to incorporate it into any attractive themes.
In Oklahoma we do not want cactus themes or cowboy themes. We already have burros, and some Mexican artifacts. That would be a possibility.
