The theme of this week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is REPURPOSE.
I do a lot of repurposing of things to use in my garden. Take something created for a specific purpose and, instead of throwing it into the refuse bin when its original usefulness is over, find a new purpose for it.
My Arranger was about to discard her bowling ball (with which she has won several trophies), but I salvaged it and repurposed it as a garden ornament. You can pay $50-$100 for the popular ceramic globes at a garden center; this one is certainly as beautiful, will probably last for centuries, and it is free!
What does one do with played out tennis balls? Give some to a kid to throw around, or put them in the bin at the tennis center. I found a better use. Fill the bottom of a flower pot with a number of tennis balls before putting in the soil. You save on soil and the pot is easier to lift, and the drainage is better.
