Mundane Monday : (most original!) Flower pots

Can’t plant now, I need to buy pots” is not a valid excuse anymore!

In response to Mundane Monday Photo Challenge hosted by the great Jithin, created to find beauty in almost everything. The challenge is simple : find beauty in everyday mundane things, capture the beauty and upload the photographs 🙂

Happy Week to you all !

    1. Wandering in your country is such a source of inspiration! Especially in Bantayan, where the kids can see in every tiny street that money doesn’t buy creativity and fun 🙂 Have a great one!

      1. awww. such words we Filipinos always treasure. We may not be one of the richest countries but we are surely not short on resourcefulness and smiles. I appreciate your words so much, Estelea. ❤

    1. Thanks Debbie ! This Filipino island is pretty poor, and has been devastated by typhoon Haiyan years ago, but it offers free courses on creativity and DYI every where you look 🙂

    1. Well, we Parisian are gifted, you know. We look at a wall and just say “now make it green”, et voila! 😉
      A more efficient way would be to read this article http://www.ambius.com/blog/ultimate-guide-to-living-green-walls/ I actually wanted to give it a try, I saw quite lots of them in France and even in Thailand, and I find them beautiful (they also reduce noise and are pretty good for the environment) but I guess they would not last long in the Filipino heat. But wouldn’t it look awesome inside a house, made of delicious cooking herbs or even flowers?

      1. This is quite fascinating. I got hooked! I read and saw quite a few videos. It would be cool to try out. You’ll have to customize it for the Filipino weather condition, use the local plants probably. But definitely worth a try.

      2. Oh totally worth a try! I have been reading and watching quite a lots about those walls and came to the conclusion that I need to lobby the schools here to make this happen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UCtAQOP3xuk
        There is NO recycling whatsoever here, plastic and glass are everywhere. How great would it be to make something beautiful and educational out of it?..

      3. I’d love to! I even read about a Bangladeshi who initiated a system of “aircon” with plastic bottles in the slums. How great is that? Next time we are in Bantayan I ll try to meet up with some local NGOs to see how some of this great stuff could be implemented. Imagine if we have schools on board, what a great learning for the kids!

    1. Thanks so much for letting me know, no idea how it did happen but the Dream team of WordPress just fixed it 🙂 Enjoy!

      1. Thanks to you! HAve a lovely day (well, it is 9 AM in our corner of the world)

      2. Internet and the 21rst century communication will never cease to amaze me. I know I am talking like a 90 yo but I really mean it!! Good night 🙂
