A Bike with Flowers

Is this practical? No. Do I want to do it anyway? Yes.

I LOVE flowers on bikes. I just lived the last 3 years in Germany. Their tradition for Father's Day is that the men get dressed up, decorate their bikes with flowers, and ride around all day from pub to pub. It's kinda strange, but I sure like the bikes.
Here's one of my favorite potters, Claus Woekener. . . He makes little vases especially for bikes.

I have always loved bicycles with flowers!

Girls, all I've been thinking about is how heavy my basket would be with all of that dirt and would my bike rust with all of the watering necessary for flowers. I'd have to remember to set it outside to give them some sun. Really, I think these ridiculous things. I will not allow myself to do it though!

Marian, what a fabulous tradition and those vases! Wow. I'm trying to think of how to fashion one for my bike now.

Fifi, I heart your paintings.
