At my gallery I have another flower bike, a bike I bought a couple of doors down at the MS op shop. For such a small penny a flower bike really is a good addition to the streetscape, isn’t it? The black spraypaint cost more than the bike itself. This photo was taken a couple of years ago, I can see I need to plant more pansies again this spring… You only get a couple of years from the baskets before they start to fall apart. I do wooden boxes now, but metal is good too.
