A hanging garden 00:00 / 00:00
Most gardeners are happy with a few tubs（澡盆，桶） and baskets but Edward Hayes thinks that is far too easy. So he built this 26ft-high flower tower, containing more than 2,000 plants including geraniums（天竺葵）, pansies(三色紫罗兰） and fuchsias（灯笼海棠）, in the drive of his home in Newport, South Wales.
The 71-year-old man had planned to make his hanging garden even bigger. “It was supposed to be 40ft high but my wife wouldn’t let me go any higher,” Mr Hayes admitted. It may be just as the tower, which has a spiral ladder（螺旋梯） inside, takes him three hours to water. He made it from recycled（回收的） office desks, building six steel sections which he welded（焊接） together and tethered（拴住） to a wall.
Mr Hayes, who is semi-retired, explained, “My main job is buying and selling office furniture. I had all this steel left over and thought, ‘I’ve got to make use of it.’” It took him three months and he has already replanted it once after initially（起初） filling it with daffodils（水仙花） and tulips（郁金香）.
“The neighbours adore（崇拜） it. A lot of people stop and take pictures of it and ask me questions,” he said. “I’ve already got another one designed in my mind for next year.”
