A recent trial run of a planned October installation and fundraiser gave dozens of Detroit's master florists a chance to cover a derelict house in the city with 4,000 blooms. The result is just what you'd expect, flower power meets ruin porn, for a cause. The cause is an effort by local non-profit Reclaim Detroit to deconstruct, rather than demolish, the city's abandoned dwellings, making their parts easier to salvage. So far, the organizer, florist Lisa Waud, has raised $6,000 and hopes to hit a $50,000 goal by mid-June.
