Free flowers

Melody WarnickBlacksburg, Cool projects, Place love


I’ve passed this wooden flower stand and its “Free flowers” sign before, only I’ve always been too late to see anything but empty shelves until today, when four repurposed glass jars full of loveliness were sitting there. I only had spare change for the donation box, but I couldn’t resist stopping and taking a jar that once held lingonberry jam and now holds mint, daisies, and what I think might be a dahlia.

Isn’t this adorable and neighborly and such a good idea for those endowed with a green thumb? It’s like a Little Free Library for flowers. I have no idea who’s behind it, but that this exists in Blacksburg makes me incredibly happy. (Thank you, whoever you are on the corner of Harding and Orchard View!)

Have you seen anything like this in your town?
