Rust keeps us interesting, no? If these photos are from your garden you have some beautiful outdoor art.

I like the idea that rust is like a well-aged patina. Being a rusty flower..is more than okay. It's great!!!

i have a large iris garden sculpture made of some metal... not sure which. i just know it's very heavy. but it is completely rusted, and looks very cool. what a great idea... whoever thought of these sculptures.

i especially love the last shot. those rusted flowers against the yellows and greens in the leaves is beautiful.

I like rust because, really, what more can happen? It can only become enhanced with more time and the elements. Lovely photos.

Yes, rust is beautiful. It just is. I love that first shot, the rustier the better! I have an old iron star hanging outside on my house, and when it rains, the rust runs down the side of the house. But I keep it there anyway, it's that patina thing...
