A rare combination of junk making art and life collide.

Here's a stunning old car used as a container garden, extending its useful life by decades.

Also, the photographer has made a superb job of collaging several pictures together.

The result is something anybody would be happy to put on their wall, or computer desktop. Truly an amazing piece of work.

If you look closely, you'll see among the cactus plants that an artist has installed metal sculptures, including a giant flower or hop bud on the roof, and a winged insect on the hood of the old car.

Very, very special!
