infill

Thanks to Justin, I just discovered Pete Dungey's brilliant Pothole Gardens, "an ongoing series of public installations highlighting the problem of surface imperfections on Britain's roads," by filling them with primroses.

Aren't they beautiful? He's invited others to participate and send images here: info@petedungey.com

I can't wait until the snow melts so I can get to work on southeast Michigan's roads.
