My hubby was maintenence supervisor for our local school system, and was able to save many discarded treasures from the junk heap. This planter is made from an aluminum tricycle with a wire gym locker basket attached to the low seat. I painted it in my favorite whimsical pink and green hues and patterns.

Pattern or design used: My own design

I'll have tulips in April or May, and the rhododendrons bloom beautifully in the summer. Back here in the woods we have lots of rhodos, mountain laurel, wild flowers, ferns, and much more.
