(Windsor, CO) -- A Colorado man is fighting with his homeowners association over their demand that he remove an unusual decoration from his lawn.

Sean McGarry says he found a toilet sitting in his yard last October in Windsor, near Fort Collins. He found out later that his neighbors had placed the toilet there as a joke and he decided to run with the idea.

He's decorated it for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas, and was planning to do so for Valentine's Day. However, he received a notice this week that the HOA wants the toilet flushed for violating community standards.

McGarry is refusing to budge and has set up a GoFundMe account for donations to pay any fines leveled against him.
