While making our last minute gifts, we were in a bit of a pinch to come up with some flower choices that would work with a bike planter on one of the shortest and darkest days of the year. To pair with this clear planter, we chose some sage that we had growing as a kitchen herb, and a single sprig of thistle that we got at the The Little Flower Shoppe in Ridgewood, NJ, while visiting family.

The bike planter that we used here is available to download for free to 3D print on Thingiverse. If you have any great flower combinations for your planter, or you 3D print your own bike planter, we'd love for you to share what you made with us on twitter by tweeting us @wearplants!
