Hee! I like this example of re-purposing.

brattcat said...

Is that why I've got stuff growing in the tub?

Rose said...

Hey, that is a pretty good idea...it has a drain hole and everything.

Memphis MOJO said...

That wouldn't happen to me -- I use the shower!

Paula said...

A very green way to recycle an outmoded tub. Well done.

Kate said...

Reduce, reuse, recycle...guess the owners really took this to heart!

magiceye said...

go green!!

Don and Krise said...

I love it. I've planted in all sorts of things before.

Steffe said...

Ha. Great find.

Irina said...

Is it the main decoration of the yard? Or more WC stuff is around?
Because the idea is great. But only in appropriate surroundings.

Bibi said...

I guess I'll have to bring my ivy indoors....this ivy looks beautiful. I guess I could shower over it.

Very clever but we use old tubs for horse waterers. MB

Lois said...

I really like that!

JM said...

Very cool! :-)

Hilda said...

The tub made me smile, but I think those vines are just gorgeous!

Marie-Noyale said...

Hope the ivy sticks to the outside too
to hide the rust!!
So you are taking showers now!!!

Jarart said...

Ha! They have thought of a good use for that old tub. The plant seems to be happy there.

You are simply going to have to clean it more often.

Daryl said...

Rings are one thing but seriously that is scary ..

Photographers tend to let things around the house "go"! HA

I don't clean my bathtub too well, but it doesn't look as good as this - I'll have to stop completely.

Love the outdoor dining below - what a pretty building.

VP said...

Great catch! I hope nothing is hiding there...

Now if that isn't green recycling...

Trillian said...

Great idea! An ecological and economic furniture!

tapirgal said...

Do you promise if I stop scrubbing, the bathtub will turn out this well?

Cezar and Léia said...

I liked a lot, it's conceptual, really modern! :)

This reminds me of a scene from Texas. I was always amazed at the number of 'bathtub planters' I would see there.

EG Wow said...

Hey! It's one way to recycle. :) I wonder if it's considered "yard art."

Unseen Rajasthan said...

This is beautiful !!

LOL, great title.

I love the texture blends in this and the vibrant green within. Love the rust.
