The Vintage Junk Bicycle was a gift from a friend, hence the name; the Russel About.
The paper delivery basket froths over with Sedum cyaneum 'Rose Carpet', Sedum kamschaticum (Stonecrop), and several no identification Sempervivum (hens and chicks).
Old pieces of rustic junk are a great way to add some interest to your garden, particularly if you are gardening in an area that is drought stricken for at least part of the year.
You can keep a few containers watered, and use funky and salvaged art to display instead.
The back seat view; it's not so bad from this angle...
There is no end of ideas all over the place; just go to any flea market or yard sale, and let your imagination run riot.

Lush plantings surround the bike - this garden gets virtually no water, ever, except what nature provides.
The old metal rusts beautifully - there is something about the quality of rust on old metal things; it has a really different look to it somehow.

The old bike just continues to get better - this picture is of the blooms of Sedum cyaneum 'Rose Carpet' in August.
