Turtle of the Day - The Crackpot

This turtle is a bit hard to see - but he is part of the flowerpot - a little dimensional accent to this great blue pot. You can just make out his shell and a few appendages in the lower right part of the pot.

I have the pot raised up on a spool from a Japanese textile mill - I found two at a Japanese antique shop and brought them home -one with thread still wound on it.

Please excuse the old terra cotta and butter tub combo - I was rooting a Christmas Cactus for a friend and getting ready to deliver it.

I see it! Adorable.

Don't tell me you can grow things inside too? First your amazing garden and now this. You have the master's touch, don't you? My grandma has a lovely Christmas cactus that has been growing for YEARS and years.

Adorable! I thought of you today as I was walking as a large turtle was in the middle of the street! I would have helped it all the way across, but I was alone with Jesse, my 35 lb doggy, so I opted instead to keep her away from the turtle... as I walked away I wondered whether it was a snapping one or not.... but the turtle made me think of you!
