BACSACS for Flowers Everywhere!!

I am completely charmed by these industrial, construction-y, feeling BACSAC plant containers from France.  I think they make things seem so temporary and able to change at a whim (which is probably not true as I am sure once they are filled, they are heavy) – but it is  a quality I like in a garden…it is never the same twice.

I am especially drawn to the ruck sack version.   The idea of flowers overflowing from saw horses opens so many opportunities to pretty things up.  I was in Boston yesterday and did a lot of walking. I always notice what is planted (or not planted) wherever I go.  American Cities really don’t have that much in the way of flowers and gardens. When I lived in England it was impossible to NOT notice every pub’s floral displays, they are always such bright spots in an urban landscape.  These bags seem like they might be good tools create those type of voluptuous displays in a lot more obscure un-plantable places.

Here is what I would love to see, when I pull up to a closed road- perhaps some summer road construction – I am greeted with some nice flowers and a friendly sign that shows me the detour. I am wondering if we had more flowers on roadsides if we would reduce the incidence of road rage? I think it might….what do you think?
