One man’s trash is another man’s treasure — literally! For Lewis Miller, a floral designer in New York City, that seems to be the motto he lives by every day as he works to beautify the bustling city streets one block at a time. Just feast your eyes on his gorgeous trash can flowers! They’re part of his Flower Flashes series in which he turns otherwise grungy garbage cans into elegant floral arrangements. It’s almost as if he waves his artistic magic wand and “Poof!” An ordinary street corner is alive and awash in bright, cheery colors!
“I am in the business of fantasy and flowers, and it’s my job to transform key moments in my clients’ lives into joyful, everlasting memories,” he says. “I wanted to recreate a similar feeling for the everyday city-dwellers and tourists of New York City.”
How beautiful is that, friends? What a way to brighten people’s lives as they go about the daily grind. I can just imagine being stressed out while rolling down the street, looking up and seeing these pretty flowers! Ahhh, instant calm!
