This self-proclaimed guerrilla gardener plants little surprises in potholes all over East London. It's an intervention that calls attention to roads in disrepair, brings a burst of color to a notoriously gray landscape, and delivers sweetness to everyone who passes by.

We love the near-instant gratification of these gardens and find them totally inspiring. Whether you're not sure what to do in a corner of the yard, missing a paver or two on the patio, or looking for a project with the family on a Spring afternoon, consider borrowing a page from The Pothole Gardener. Check out the blog here and this sweet little video:
