WPC: Broken

April 30, 2015 Oregon in  April 318


This broken concrete birdbath at the Connie Hansen Garden Conservancy in Lincoln City, Oregon, was re-purposed as a planter for succulents.

Many succulents are shallow rooted and can grow in very thin soil, conserving water in their leaves and stem during dry periods.

For The Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Broken

For this challenge, capture something broken: an old window,

a vintage sign, a toy never fixed, a contemplative friend.

Or go deeper: find beauty in something broken.
