Christmas tree made from used bicycles

Last year the local council copped some flak for a poor job decorating the town's Christmas year so this year they made a Christmas tree by recycling some old bicycles that were going to be scrapped.





Here's is a picture of the usual tree. Poor thing is a bit wonky.



It was a bit cloudy this morning so the pics are a bit dark:

The bike tree is very creative, and much better looking.

I prefer the original Charlie Brown tree, it's a step up from my ficus.

That's great.

I need to look behind my shed, maybe I can build one too.
