" Flush with Victory " the catchy title of this mornings news article began , a woman in suburban Chicago won her 18 month court battle to keep her two white porcelain toilets that she used as seasonal planters in her front yard. At this moment they are very Christmasy with lights and pointsettas.
A property with a large victorian house decided to plant a "prairie " garden in the front yard. By the end of July it had become a chaotic mass of weeds that had smothered any flowers that might have been there and the neighbors called the city to report it as a rat's nest. Fortunately the city has laws that weeds are not to exceed 2 feet and ordered them to mow it down.
No doubt you've seen a lot of these popular pieces in gardens across the country.

The Garden Gnome
The Bottle Tree
Recently a well known garden designer in California planted a flower garden in the bed of an open truck and everyone was declaring how original and divine it was. Hmmm. When I joked that it looked like a "redneck " garden I was chided for saying so. For someone who has seen just about every potential thing from old tires to old trucks, sinks, tubs, beds ( real ones ) and yes, toilets used as flower containers my answer was " well, if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck ..... "
What kind of art do you have in your garden ?
