One man’s trash can is another man’s vase.

That’s especially true for Lewis Miller – a floral designer based out of New York City.

Miller and his staff have taken to arranging and creating beautiful blossoming bouquets of flowers inside of neighborhood trash cans.

The floral team is constantly scouting the streets of the Big Apple, looking for ideal trash cans to host their flower bunches.

All of the bouquets are bought and paid for by Miller as his “labor of love” to the Burroughs. They are also presented with a spray painted “LMD x NYC” tag so pedestrians can find photos of the blossoms on Instagram. “LMD”, of course, stands for Lewis Miller Design.

“They’re our flowers to New York. That’s really the message — to gift flowers to New Yorkers for no other reason than to make them smile,” the company’s project director told TODAY. “If they’re really early risers and they come while we’re making them, they ask us what it’s for. And we say, ‘It’s for you.’ They truly don’t believe us — that disbelief is very New York.”
