Unusual Front Gardens #30: Fill yer boots

Walking boots filled with flowers

Great to have my mate Mark contributing to this blog again, albeit via a new media - he usually emails them to me!

We've had wellies previously* (here and here), so it was only a matter of time before flower-filled boots were found. They're quite apt seeing Mark spotted them in the Lake District.

* = There may be more in the future as I've spotted some in Rowde outside a farm along with a flower-filled tractor tyre. I just need the courage to stop on a busy main road and snap them. Sadly the "face" I spotted a little further on is no more.


  1. I've just filled another boot! The one in my car with bags and tub trugs of well-rotted horse muck - the benefit of having a friend with horses :)

  2. Fabulous - the moss is the perfect finishing touch. Well spotted by Mark.

    1. I hadn't spotted that Anna! Well done :)

  3. I was wondering if they were forty - ha ha!

  4. Oops I meant ‘wondering if they were Gortex! ‘

    1. Tee hee - good to see you on here Mark 😊
