They're everywhere, and they're annoying. We're talking about potholes. Some folks are fed up, and they're getting creative.

Residents in Brussels, Toronto and the United Kingdom are filling dee potholes—like the ones here in Cleveland—with something unexpected: flowers.

Images circling social media show potholes filled with flowers of all kinds.

If the potholes aren't going to be filled anytime soon, residents figure they might as well make them beautiful. 

The flowers may not stay in the potholes for long, but they do draw attention.
