Odd Places to Garden

Where do you garden mosaic

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It might be fun to explore the oddest places that people have seen a garden.   I would imagine there would be some very interesting and kooky places.   I thought while it is raining outside and I am in here at the computer I would look at some of the various places that gardens were planted at the recent Canada Blooms event.  There was the hydroponic display of lettuce, a bicycle basket, a lovely wicker basket, perhaps a rooftop, how about in the trunk of your car, upon an easel, in a fancy red Radio flyer or maybe a little red wagon.   I thought it was fun. 

Mosaic Monday is a fun meme hosted by Mary at Dear Little Red House.   I will be there.    Valerie

What a great topic. It's amazing the ideas that people come up with and yet it seems to work when filled with plants. Who would think of filling a car boot with flowers?

I like these ideas. I do garden in a bike basket, in old boots, once tried a stack of old tires, but didn't like the look. Worked sort of like raised beds, which was nice.

So many fun ideas. For me the challenge is to choose the right plants that I will not kill off.
Have a great week Valerie!

some people are so creative in their gardens. Thank you for your lovely mosaic of wonderful ideas. The sun is shining, I think I had better go and weed my garden.
Thank you also for coming over to my blog - sorry you missed out on the souffle and pizza!

What fun, Val! I can definitely see the wagon and bicycle in our garden but the others I would have a hard time convincing D! I'm back and catching up. Hope you are well and have a super week. – g
