On Route 24 [26380 John J. Williams Highway, Millsboro, Delaware] we passed a yard full of Colorful Sculptures & flower beds. On our return from Rehoboth we stopped to take a few pictures. [I will have to stop earlier in the day when the light is better]
Judy & Lou Hagen cooperatively design their Recycled Metal Sculptures. Lou does the welding and Judy does the finishing. Whimsical & Colorful Work… “the shape of metal is reborn when the imagination gives it form.”
