DIY Daddio

My parents live on a lake in Maine, so I had bought them a floating flower bed that looks (kind of) like a magical floating rock.

I was very pleased to see it being put to use, even if only one of its pots held a half-drowned tomato plant (due to the excessive rain, not the fact that there’s a body of water beneath it). However, apparently DIY Daddio had taken it upon himself to rumage through the basement and create his own versions…

How nice of him to tether them next to mine thereby completing the house boat shanty-town affect. When asked why he didn’t make them look nicer, he proudly reminded me that he was only interested in free materials…which I guess I can’t help but admire. And I bet he could find some fake plants around the house to use as Styrofoam cover if he really felt like it…

Sidenote: Googling “Floating Garden” has wonderful image results!
