Man Wins Fight Against City for ‘Flower Potty’ [VIDEO]

Photo: YouTube

Spring is in the air, and I am itching to get my garden all prepped and ready to start planting flowers.  My wife loves the bird feeder and bird bath I bought for her.  She even loves the solar powered lights that kick on at night.  How would she respond if I told her I was going to put in a ‘flower potty?’

William Terry has fought the battle of the abode since last winter when city officials sent him a citation for his toilet-turned-flower-pot and asked him to remove it promptly. Disgruntled, Terry argued that he was merely recycling an otherwise useful object and went around town taking pictures of other unsightly planters he’d noticed.

The judge ruled in Terry’s favor since the city code definition of rubbish is so broad, it would apply to most containers used to house flowers.

Terry’s flower potty is currently used to house yellow daffodils and he’d like to add an additional porcelain throne to his yard.
