Inspiration For A Green Garden Re-Use Project

This past summer I spied these Red Wagons at the Municipal Complex in Clifton NJ. Simple old red wagons repurposed as planters that bring usefullness, practicality, whimsy, and even a bit of nostalgia to the garden. I am inspired!

Sure, I can go to the local hardware store and buy a wagon or two, but what's the fun in that. Reuse and restoration projects are more fun when coupled by discovery, and sometimes a U-turn. With the weather warming up and the metre tall snow banks melting, there are bound to be interesting things revealed in the coming weeks. We'll see how the curbing goes - there might just be a wagon curbside. Of course there are always the endless supply of garage sales that pop up in spring.
