On the 11th Saturday, 7th July 2012, Nathaniel and I made our own Supertree for our project.
I chanced upon this barren plastic branch the day after I had just finished a run at the Marina Bay Gardens where I took pictures of the Supertrees. This was what became of it after I plucked out all its plastic flowers for the blue garden. All the light bulbs in my head burst into flames when I saw the stem and I knew then we would have our own Supertree.
This Supertree of ours would be made with licence plates, rusty exhaust pipes and steel parts.
I printed the licence plates with the words I wanted to use on a paper and then glued the paper onto a sheet of metal foil that was used as packaging for medication. I then painted the plates to give them a rusty and old effect.

Teedee was charged with arranging the words for the Supertree. Essentially, this Supertree was to double up as a huge signpost for the garden.
One of the signs say:
Project Junkyard by Nathaniel and Sans!
My favourite one by Teedee was
WELCOME, DEAD CARS!
The thing that really pleases us both about this signpost though is how we are able to tell everyone that this junkyard project has now evolved into a
Heaven for Dead Cars.
