Container Gardening


The old car was a wonderful find (it’s been in this spot since 1989), but I absolutely love the boot idea.
My son just may find that one of his many old boots, has gone missing.  😉
Have a great week!!

  8. I cannot begin to tell you how much I love that car.
    It seems to have taken on a life of its own, such character, so much to say!
    And the boot idea: SUPERB. Brilliant.

  11. Your title is brilliant, and those plants growing right out of the hood of that old vehicle are amazing. What a fantastic find! The succulents in the boot are great too, but oh, that car in the woods…that’s just stunning!

  12. Love the boot and the old car 🙂 I have an old bike temporarily looking sad and was thinking nature growing wildly around it would improve it’s style 🙂

  13. Ah, Lisa, I just finished a day in the sewing room, and coming up for “fresh air”…these two “containers” are so fun, especially the boot! That old jeep definitely has a purpose. Love the humor in both of these. Happy week dear friend!

  14. The old vehicle is so cool! One would not expect to see foliage growing from a car hood. Nice work with the old boot Lisa. That is something you can have a lot of fun with. The contrast of beautiful life growing out of a tired old shoe is so fantastic.

  15. Whoa Lisa! You car’s been there for as long as I’ve been around… 😀
    And as for the boot, it was well worth it… 🙂

  16. Wow, is that Jeep on your property? My husband would probably find a way to restore it and get it back on the road. He loves vintage cars. 🙂 But it certainly makes for an unexpected container gardening! I haven’t tried old boots, but I do like planting flowers in unusual containers. They sure add some originality to the garden! Have a great summer, my friend! xo

    • No, it’s not mine, Loredana. I was planting flowers on my Mom’s grave over the Memorial Day weekend, and this is in the woods surrounding the cemetery. I actually did not see it, but my husband did!
      Happy day to you, my friend.
      xo.

  18. Yes, that old jeep-like vehicle is a wonderful find, especially those plants growing in front of the windscreen! As for the boot, I have seen them over here, sometimes at the side of a front door! Nature tends to take over when we let it. It has such strength and the power to survive!

  22. How creative: container gardening! I’ve seen old abandoned vehicles like this before but never had the creative thought process to think of it as container gardening — so clever. I love your photography of both of these beautiful examples. Happy summer Lisa!

  23. So fun! I’ve seen similar ones featuring old vehicles but not one in a boot! Hmmmm, i might have to snag one the hubby’s old boots and plant a succulent. Great pics and happy week to you beautiful! xo

  24. I ALWAYS like images depicting something man-made while nature takes back what is rightfully their’s in the first place. Incredible find, Lisa. Clever way of repurposing that old boot.

    Have a happy week young lady. 🙂

  25. I love that old truck! I have plenty of old boots around our place, but I’m not sure I’ll turn them into plant containers. although this one is cute. 🙂 Thank you for sharing these, Lisa! I hope you have a beautiful week! xoxoxo
