bikes and gardens

There is just something about the pairing of old bikes with flowers that seems like a marriage made in heaven.

  4. Lovely photos! Years ago (I was ahead of my time), I parked an old coaster bike in my back garden. All but one vintage loving friend said: "Why is there a bike out there?" I got rid of it. Guess I need more artsy friends and relatives!!

  6. Beautiful Laura.... I just picked up an old bike that I want to give a trial ride to see if the narrow tires will work on my road or not so I can decide what new bike to buy... then, it is going in the garden... not as vintage a style as I would like, but 38 years old nonetheless! Cheers~

  9. Gorgeous pictures!!! I love old bikes, stick a basket of flowers on them and l'm really smiling! I have an old bike and an old shopping basket l'm hoping to do sth with this summer, thanks for all the lovely inspiration! Think l love old bikes so much because they remind me of hazy lazy summer days when people weren't in such a hurry. An elderly man in my village used to cycle slowly round almost every day, just to see if there was anyone about to have a little chat with - like my dad. My dad had a big old bike, goodness knows how many times l tipped over trying to ride that huge thing :-). Blessings Pam

  10. Very cute! I always think of a bike with flowers in the basket as something you would see parked in front of a storybook cottage with a white picket fence. Must be from my childhood books!
