Pothole pot plant in Cape St Francis
It had to happen!! Someone with a sense of humour planted a plant in a pothole in this tiny Eastern Cape village today.
The unusual gardening activities were carried out at the first pothole just after the first hump as you enter Cape St Francis.
The pot plant created a group of interested and amused bystanders. Barry Tonkin who works at Cape St Francis Resort took some photos. He says while he was snapping, he noticed some municpal officials looking at the pot plant in the road.
Cape St Francis resident, Marcel Mortimer also took a photo of what he calls “an anti speeding device”.
A short while later the plant had been removed.
In St Francis Chronicle’s July edition we wrote about some unusual uses for potholes, such as nests for hens and ostriches and we mentioned that in some overseas countries people have planted many types of flowering plants in potholes – a great way to beautify the ugly roads!
