Nature is full of surprises! I'm building a miniature garden for my wife and just installed some lamps on the front columns. I was wondering how I was going to weather the rust on the concrete..It seems nature took care of my weathering problems over night..Our gutter must have some pecans and pecan leaves stuck in it making a kind of pecan soup..When it rained the over flow spilled onto my garden weathering it over night...Here is a couple of pictures of the rust look under the lamps after the rain.

That's fantastic! Although I've got to admit, when I saw the topic title I thought you were going to tell us a recipe for making juice from pecans, which had me very confused! :LOL:

You are very talented. I would love having a garden like this one. Your wife is very lucky to have such a skilled husband.

You definitely have some talent. You have a really beautiful set up. I regret not standing by my grandfather as a child to learn what it took to build beautiful structures like this.

Thank you Alex! I wish I could help you on this but I'm not really sure how I can do these things.. In fact this structure has had no plans on paper and I have never had to go back and rebuild something because it was wrong. Some how I just know how to do it..I can tell you that when Im working with concrete I just imagine how it needs to be inside of the forms to get what im looking for. I think imagination is the key!

This is beyond incredible - seriously! All that detail...I wish I had half the talent to do something like that. I guess it's something for me to be inspired by and hopefully live up to, one day!
