One reader shares a budding plant bed on MOTHER's See You photo-sharing website. This old appliance serves two purposes: practical reuse of a tired trailer and serene piece of art. What a joyful creation! Many thanks to user organicrepublican for capturing this shot!

Be sure to submit your own photos to share your favorite moments with us and other readers. Maybe the next Photo of the Day will feature it!

I ALWAYS enjoy the re-using of what's considered 'garbage' by others! Nice Job! The photo does not say WHAT is growing...I assume FLOWERS for decoration. But another feature is that this can be a great way to garden for those that cannot bend down low or reach a ground-level garden plot [ such as the wheel-chair bound, or those with bad backs, etc.] A tip to hide the cinder block supports would be to plant some trailing vines [Morning Glory?] at the base to have a really nice look! THANKS FOR SHARING!
