Last year I added a bit of Whimsy to my GEORGIA GARDENS. Click HERE to see how this bicycle came to be...
I notice the wicker basket is starting to warp and break down after a year of Summer heat and Winter cold. Time to make an adjustment.
Not happy with having to water this basket practically every day during the heat of summer, I may have come up with a solution.
A new ($2.00) piece of Coco Liner.
A new ($3.00) Railing Basket.
A new ($.60) Plastic Tray.
And a Pot of Mixed Plants found on the Bargain Bin for a mere $3.00.
I cut to size and put the Coco Liner into the Basket. The Liner should hide the pot of Flowers.
I secured the Liner with Black Pipe-Cleaners.
I placed the Tray inside. The plan is for the tray to keep moisture on the Plants for less watering this summer.
I set the entire pot of plants into its new home.
Lastly, I attached the Basket of Flowers to the Bicycle. Easy, inexpensive solution to the failing basket. Which now sits by the bike until the Pansy and Viola within perish. The Basket on the back of the Bicycle has a Red Geranium, Yellow Pansy and a hanging plant which are doing fine for now.
