My son gave me an old dodge truck and said where do you want it in the garden!!

Anyone have pics of what they have done to theirs?

Love the truck!!! Now I know what to do the next time I see one on craigslist. Proves that you can turn anything into a planting bed and/or planting pot :)

Love the truck! What a neat hubby for putting it there for you. I especially like the year the colorful flowers were tumbling out. The brick figure is really cute and a clever idea.
Gardener64 so gave you a good inspiration pic. Hope to see pics of yours one day.

I LOVE your old truck, calicocat! When you said old, you really weren't kidding! I wonder what the year was when it was new. Your garden looks wonderful with the pathway and interesting objects. The truck is a treasure, and so is your hubby for installing it for you! Both are keepers!
