Composter Flower Pot

The power of plants.  They grow in cracks, on rock cliffs, building roofs, and gutters.  These Philippine Violets were not going to give up after being pruned and thrown into the composter.  Incredibly the plants were able to find the small holes to stretch through and receive the sunlight needed to keep them alive.

The composter is being hugged by the Arrowhead plant that was thrown on the compost pile.  Plants know how to find the elements that sustain them.  But how?  The composter will remain a flower pot for now and I will just watch the wonders of nature.

  1. In order to root pineapple tops, I throw them on the compost heap!

    Today I saw some sort of plant growing out of the little crack in a steel manhole. I have to admit I was kind of impressed!

    Funny. Plants will have their way. Nice to see your turtles in the previous posts. Haven’t seen one in my garden in several years.

    Why is it that some plants survive and thrive under the most difficult conditions, and others die no matter how much loving care I give them?
