A Collection of Guesses...
I've been thoroughly entertained at the speculation of WTF is going on in our backyard. The current list of guesses so far is below, along w/ the number of times it was guessed. If there's no number, it was only guessed once; if there is a number, that number is inclusive of the first person who guessed it. Some are rather detailed answers and very close to other guesses, but due to the creativity, I decided not to combine some of them. Also, what is wrong with some of you???

So What is it?
Well, I'm not going to tell you yet. But I will say there are some REALLY close guesses... And it isn't exactly a SINGLE thing. So there's your hint.
A few thoughts:
My British friend participated in the banter, so if you are an American rube like me, I included the link to what a Folly is in case you didn't know. You can also sense the British influence c/o #32.
I will one day have a Franzywood. No I won't. But that would be cool. Kinda. Instead of roller coasters like Dolly, we'd have crochet classes and naps.
A Koi Pond would be quite handy for the goldfish we are returning to the pet store today. Because HE'S HUGE. We got him as a snack for Ernest, but instead he eats Ernest's crickets. So he's history. But I'm sure he would have appreciated a Koi Pond.
I'm fascinated that two people guessed a shotput/discus throw pad.
I also feel that the number of times a "coliseum" of sorts came up is high. I suppose I should consider what that says about us.
It's still not a sundial, Brandon.
Trebuchet. I didn't combine this w/ #8, because I think Megan deserves props for calling out a specific type.
If all goes well, it won't be long before the project becomes obvious. Hope you stick around to see what it is.
