A rather interesting trend has been sweeping across the lawns of Bell County in Texas. Residents have begun expressing themselves through a colorful array of metal yard art. Each creation portrays a unique story and conveys a sense of hospitality. One resident artist, Chris Lesinski, actually taught herself to weld over the last four years and continues to perfect her craft day by day. What a great way to enrich your community!

From flamingos to toilets, all sorts of things decorate the lawns of Bell County.
The six-foot metal daisy, the gnome and mermaid statue: It could be homemade, store bought or a reminder of years gone by.
Each has a different story about why it came to be.
But they all have one thing in common: They make a place a home for their owner.
