Man builds 26ft (8m) flower tower in driveway

7 posts in this topic

Retired steel worker Edward Hayes has built a 26ft (8m) tower of flowers in the drive of his Newport home.

Mr Hayes, 71, spent three months making and decorating the framework which contains 128 pots of home-grown blooms.

"It was supposed to be 40ft high but the wife wouldn't let me go any higher," said Mr Hayes, who also built his own home.

I hope he uploads a YouTube video of how it stands up to the pleasant breezes we sometimes get in Britain.

It's funny how retirement will lead to some interesting hobbies. My father has been in semi retirement for a few years and with his extra spare time, he has been building some inukshuks. They became bigger and bigger. Here's the biggest one so far:
