Yeah, I think phallic is an understatement for that one!

My first thought was ear of corn which tells you my mind is.

Glad someone else said it first! What a fun post! I'd never thought of turning supplies into landscaping elements. Wow.

LINDA FROM EACH LITTLE WORLD

Elizabeth — My husband says that when he started building it, he was mostly wondering how many bricks there were and when he would run out etc. It wasn't until he stepped back and looked at it that he realized what he'd created!

Les — you sound like you're from Iowa instead of the Tidewater!

LINDA FROM EACH LITTLE WORLD

Deborah — I was comfortable with the name since my 70 year old friend came up with it. But I could never have named it that myself.

When we went to plant that area, we dismantled it and used the bricks in a couple of projects. But I made a low circular wall around one of my birch trees with the remaining bricks. I used to imagine that I would come out some morning and discover a Unicorn sleeping peacefully and safely inside the wall. Alas, it never happened.

From the first picture, my mind was in the gutter. But I'd never have come up with such an apt name for the sculpture as your 70-year-old friend. Hilarious! What did your neighbors think, or did they ever say?

LINDA FROM EACH LITTLE WORLD

I can't remember what the neighbors on the side where it was visible said, if anything. They are not ones to take offense easily. As a matter of fact, we are merging our gardens all along the lot line where there is no fence. They dug their side up and let it rest last winter, then added compost and put in some of their plants and I added a lot of my groundcover plants. This spring, it should begin to fill in.
