Yellow Bike/ Yard Art

Two-wheeled dried flower container

This was out in front of a century-old home in small-town, Ontario. Since then I've spotted another painted lime green but I have not taken a photo of it...YET.

There are many of these around here. I haven't taken a shot yet, either.

I kinda like bicycle yard art.

Down the road someone has a bright orange on at the start of their long driveway with their address on it and someone up Chuckanut Rd. has a fence of ole ones painted white.
Odd but true. MB

Love old bikes, even when they have outused their main purpose.

Kaori said...

Even the tires are a bit yellow! I like it ;D

This is so charming! Bicycles are so visually appealing somehow, and yellow? Even better!

Jarart said...

I like the new use for old bikes. This yellow one is very eye-catching. Maybe we will get to see the green one?

I've seen some of these in Ocala and I do like them. Makes good use of an old artifact that otherwise would end up in the trash. And, if chased by scoundrels, one can toss the flowers and pedal away - fast!

This is a cool way to display flowers. I love it! A lady in our area has an old bicycle and she plants live flowers in the basket every summer.
About the Monarchs, the males have a black dot on each hind wing on either side of the body.
Have a wonderful day.

I have not seen anything like it! But I guess you have to do something with old bikes...

A very clever way to preserve bike riding memories! Most attractive!

Very nice! Hydrangeas are one of «Louis'» favorite flowers.

What a beauty, EG. Have you seen my verdigris bike mounted on my front door?

I rather like this yard art, but I'm looking forward to seeing the lime green bike.
