The backstory is when the tenants who rented the house next door to us moved, they left this giant, rather elaborately fabricated and constructed heart behind. After the new owners bought the house a couple years ago at some point I mentioned how much Susan and I liked the thing. So he asked me if I wanted it and I said “sure!”

Of course it then sat along the side of our house as I tried to figure out what the heck to do with it, until it dawned on me that with the hammock in winter hibernation, the backyard hammock stand might be a place to display it — at least until hammock weather returns… or it falls over.
