    I love the picture, I live a few blocks away and every time I walk by the chairs are in a different, artful arrangement in the yard. I’ve never actually seen anyone using them, so I choose to interpret it as a living sculpture.

      We wondered about that. When we noticed them while walking by yesterday, some neighbors a couple doors south WERE hanging out talking in another yard; seemed synergistic. – TR

    Mrs. Onion (ok, the sweet onion) loves to photograph those chairs. Don’t ask me why ….. ;)

    That’s a very expensive lot to use for a whimsical chair art garden. Good for them! I enjoy seeing the arrangements when walking the dog.

Sorry, comment time is over.
