Wrensday: Washing Machine Flower Garden

When we bought our home 5 years ago we found many random things around the property.  One of the random items was an old washing machine filled with dirt.  We emptied out the dirt (because we couldn't move it with the dirt in it) and put it up on the deck to hold seasonal flowers.

It brings a smile to those who see it.

The trick to keeping it "light" is an upside down 5 gallon paint bucket topped with a fiber lined hanging basket.  I occasionally add fresh plants, fertilizer and compost.
