Garden Of Boots

Other than these plants growing out of a bathtub, what else do you notice?

Yep, there are a pair of shoes there. In fact, this garden is full of shoes and boots that are used as planters! It is just a few blocks from our house.




“Really! There’s no such thing as self-rescue, pulling yourself up by your bootstraps. The cost of rescue is beyond our means, and even then it doesn’t guarantee Life forever…”
Psalm 49

What a clever gardener. A good way to use those old boots too rather than throwing them away.

Love the bible verse! So true, isn't it?

Sandra said...

what a great idea, I did not see the boots in the first one until I read your question. my favorite boot is the second one... and when they wear out, just toss them... upcycle is my thing and never thought of this

What a neat use of old shoes and boots.

Everything has a purpose. Never would have thought of doing this tho. Obviously, it works.

It's such a fun way to use old shoes! And I love the bathtub, too :-)

Such a wonderful Scripture, we try but there's only One true Source of rescue!

Great idea to use used boots and shoes as planters. I wonder what my hubby and friends will say if I start them in my garden.
