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.
A couple weeks later, the pansies have grown and filled up the container.
You should be able to buy little tricycles for planting for $10.00 or less. If you buy one without a basket, it’s easy to wire one onto the handles.

The little pansies have succumbed to the July heat. I thinned a bucket of succulents and found the perfect spot for them
