I like the alien invasion people, there was a similar thing done in a Village here but huge hand carved stone heard that must have weighed a ton where just left in random parts of the Village.

I love people that do this kind of thing

Creative use for the old tub. I like this kind of thing. Saw one used as a fish pond on a New York front steps.

Beautiful. Is that at your place, Shammy?

(I'm still mourning the loss of using the name ex-S!) ;)

I hope the tub was ruined before they cut out the front....pretty with the green in it....

Wow! I like it. I've seen the like before, but never quite that nifty.

REPLY ALL:
This bathtub sits outside a local antique shop. This year it seems to have survived the usual vandals who pull plants up by the roots and scatter them along the street for the want of nothing better to do.

Love this tub!
I did something similar with an old metal bedframe one year - flowerbed...hahahahaha.
Don't have a photo of it, unfortunately. But do have one of the workboot I planted one year - should try to find it and post it on my blog.

It took lots of work to make that terrarium but I think it was worth it.

I can remember taking baths in old tubs like that.

That's excellent! Yours, I assume? Good job!

Suldog said...

Oops! Should have read your comment first! Still a great job, by whomever.

I love that photo. It's perfect for the plants, and those plants are gorgeous.
