The impact of this clever use for an old bicycle is a little diminished by the gardener's choice of location.

Unfortunately it's kind of squished into the corner of a deck.

If they had placed the entire bike in the center of a lawn, propped up, and maybe repainted the bike frame a fun color, then that could have made a unique centerpiece.

Still, we love the basic concept of using a bike basket as a planter.

You could even plant flowers in a bike basket on the bicycle you use every day! The green equivalent of the vase on the dashboard of the new VW Beetle.
