Recycle Old Bikes as Planters

Happy Mother's Day weekend everyone.  If you haven't had time to think your garden plan out yet, it is the perfect weekend to head to your favorite garden shop to pick out your flowers, put on your gardening gloves, grab a shovel and head outside.  

There seems to be a new trend in gardening that involves recycling old bicycles.  If you have an old bike that has been hanging in your garage or shed for years, bring it out, spray paint it a vibrant color or leave it natural for a more rustic look.  Buy a basket for the front or front and back and place several of your favorite flower pots inside.  Put it in the front yard or lean it against a tree and your landscaping has a facelift.  I love this idea and hope you will too.  

Enjoy the weekend and Happy Mother's Day.  Check my blog next Tuesday for a new Grill Tuesday idea.
