Jim grows a nice garden oustide Bald Knob.
Jim Sheffer collects a few items everyday.
Jim's binnies are just one of his odd collections.
"I don't even want to see my water bill this month," says Jim Sheffer.
It takes a lot of water to keep his garden thriving in the heat. It's a daily chore for Sheffer.
But among the varieties-a-day lilies and other colorful flowers, Jim's property is scattered with various collections.
Jim explains one collection, "You know rabbits and gardens kind of go together. And I had a few scattered through the garden. So I realized, man I'm getting a lot of these. So just this year I put them all in one place."
Only a few feet away, is a row of 50 or so ceramic swans, once popular to display hand towels.
"Got all my ducks in a row," says Jim. "Although these are actually swans I guess."
Scattered among the five acres around Jim's house are thousands of items. Angels are a popular piece. He has several men taking a siesta. And you can't forget the pink flamingos...
Jim's even got a collection of toy dinosaurs.
Jim says, "Just about everybody hoards in one way or another. It's just like everything else; it's to the degree that you get carried away with it. I'm fairly carried away with it."
Jim points to a squirrel on a pedestal, "An old man in Bald Knob sold me that. He said he's had it in his yard for 50 years. And I thought we get a lot of squirrels in here. That will go pretty good."
Jim has no explanation for much of his collection, just stuff that caught his eye at a garage sale of thrift store. And in the middle of a pine grove outside Bald Knob, not many people even get to see it.
But working in the garden makes Jim happy, whether it's his collection or his flowers. It reminds him of the days he helped his parents work the farm.
"You really get reinforced when you're actually out here digging in it and watching the seeds come up, and everything go from some ugly little kernel to what you see now. It's all just, it's amazing."
Couldn't have said it better myself.
