I just needed to share a photo I took on my phone as I walked to work today:
Remember, in gardening, like in life, beauty is where you find it.
The back story to this photo goes something like this: This house used to be a day care center for young children. Lots of young children means lots of restrooms. So when the center closed and the house was purchased by a family they decided they had quite enough bathrooms and deinstalled some. This little toilet (and the child sized sink that sits next to it on the stoop) are planted year round with beautiful flowers. Who could argue that it is an eyesore? It is simply a recycled pot!
