Two word Tuesday: urban planters

I love a picturesque gritty urban scene, even better if it includes a plant, an old building, and a blue sky. The blue sky makes it less gritty, full of possibilities, a few clouds make it mysterious. Tuck in a few fake flowers, and the scene is complete.

  1. Those concrete planters are great! I'd love to see them cared for. Or better yet, in my driveway, holding MY plants ;-)

  3. It would have been cool if a hidden camera had captured someone sneaking in to plant those fake flowers. Guess we all have our own ideas about what it takes to improve on just about anything.

    1. Indeed, I would love to know the story behind them.

  4. Planters-great, maintenance-none, fake flowers-inspired. One of the fling activities should be going to Walmart, buying out the entire silk flower section and guerilla gardening(?) the planters.

    1. Great idea, except the planters are in Tacoma. You didn't recognize the area? It's very near the pizza place that I went to with you and Tom. I took Andrew there when we were visiting last.

  7. Good find, I'm always looking for urban grit, desert dust, and something big planted among that without pampering! Waste spaces in such a treatment often live on better than other parts of designs. And this shows bolder, greener plants have more presence in neglect...Hesperaloe funifera, anyone?
