This is neat. I think when people use creative ideas like this and recycle objects, it's not only unique, but also helps to use objects that would others wise end up in landfills or on the roadside! Fantastic photo as well with beautiful green foliage!!!

I thought it looked like littering and the plant grew up over it. . . why would anyone grow something in a used gas can? Anyway, definitely two opposites.

I love the contrasts of colour and type. Very good.

The new growth doesn't cause a bad rash does it? Or is it dewberry vines?
Anyway, I love the old gas can. Right up my alley~

unfortunately, that's how the old folks dealt with trash in the old days. there are dumps all over the woods. in summer you can't see them! This is a great shot.

Sharon,
This image actually reminded me of the oil crisis of the 1970s. My father always kept two big old gas cans tucked away in an old cement fish pond in our backyard.

As Andree said, we had neighbors who buried their trash. They had a lot of land and didn't see the problem, unfortunately.

This is nothing. In one place we lived, the wild growth totally overtook a discarded water heater.
