Fair enough, it is really hard to fill things with dirt.

Those flowers are definitely prettier than anything that might be in the Real Estate News currently.

@1 I was thinking the same thing until I looked closer and noticed the wood box actually holding all that dirt.

Until some drunkard comes by and closes the box...it's such a cute idea though!

Awww, that's precious!

No place like Toronto to show you how it's done. Near Baldwin and Spadina, right?

A drunkard couldn't close that box. A weightlifter couldn't close that box. Look again: there's a box in there.

Street boxes have always been an important part of street furniture, and it would tragic to lose them all. They are impromptu tables, desks, offices and chairs; in New York it's not unheard of to see people conducting million-dollar deals on top of them. Peaked boxes, like the old green trash bins, or topless ones, like the newer ones, are a sad impediment to street life.

#9, it looks like you could nail the box to the sides such that the door wouldn't move...

put Fnarf in there and close the lid, please

@11 You beat me to it, and your ability to pinpoint the location beat mine. I was going to guess Spadina, but didn't know the cross-street. I heart TO.

@15: My favorite restaurant Chinese restaurant in Toronto is right across the street from where that picture was taken... :)

Shouldn't those flowers be daisies?

It has good drainage.

They make great wine coolers, however.

Thanks, Torontonians, for pinpointing the location for me. I'm going to go check it out this afternoon.
