Floating Gardens Of Stanfield Marsh

This tire, mounted to a rim, is still holding air after floating around the perimeter of the marsh since spring, and the garden, complete with several species of plants and some driftwood garden art, appears to be thriving.
I wonder at the circumstances of how this life raft came to be.
A perfectly good tire & wheel, fully inflated with excellent tread, somehow becomes separated from its vehicle, fills with soil and driftwood, and ends up in the marsh where it sits high enough in the water so that whatever seeds were present didn't drown but flourished instead, upon the floating junk of industrial civilization, to create an oddly beautiful statement on life, renewal, and nature's adaptability.
