Maury Lewis sends a better way of looking at it
When life hands you a cracked crock, make a cracked crock garden

By Maury E. Lewis
When we moved here almost 6 years ago we brought a lot of clay pots with flowers in them. The winters here were too cold for the pots and they started to shatter.
My husband put the chards in a couple of feed bags and there they have sat.
Yesterday morning was a beautiful morning and I started working around the area that my husband works on his herbs in pots and uncovered several clay pots that were broken.
Two had no bottoms, one had a wedge out of the side, two more had breaks running from the top to the bottom and one white one had to be put back together like a puzzle.
I thought to myself I think I will make a "broken pot garden". The picture that is attached is the beginning of my garden. I will send other pictures as the garden changes.
I need a terracotta bunny, puppy or some other creature that maybe has a broken ear or foot or tail that would fit just fine in my garden.
These pots will come alive again with soil and flowers rain and sunshine.
Stay tuned for more pictures. It is fun to recycle. -MAURY LEWIS
