Do you have a favorite flea market find that you always buy? Vintage vases, old galvanized buckets, or gardening tools? Well, tricycles are my weakness. I currently have 4 or more in my shed, so on a pretty day last week I pulled this tricycle out and planted it with pansies. Pansies are one of the first spring annuals at the nursery, and I knew they could withstand an inevitable cold snap in March. I found this tricycle at our local thrift store for $4.00 and what caught my eye was the container on the back. Perfect for holding flowers or succulents.
Since the container didn’t have any holes, I decided to plant the pansies in pots.
I added some moss to tuck it in,
and added a little gnome to watch over the eggs.
This summer succulents will take the place of the pansies who can’t tolerate the summer heat.
