Temporary Extension Cord Protection - If you're having a party or some other event in the yard and you need additional electricity sources, here's a great way to keep extension cord plugs dry. Cut notches in the opposite sides of a reusable plastic container and snap on the lid. Your plugs will stay dry if it happens to rain or the ground is moist.
Clothesline "Sculpture" - I can envision putting this at the end of the deck. For evening outdoor gatherings when not in use, put up strings of lights and food/drink table underneath. Or a nice canopy with climbing roses, clematis or other vine flowers....it would smell divine under it!
