Every neighborhood has a crackpot - we have one next door!

I presume that you don't have freezing and ice to cause cracks. But if this is the only crackpot in the neighborhood, consider yourself lucky.

Paula said...

The crack just adds to the charm and beauty of the container plant.

Don and Krise said...

I wonder how much longer it'll hold on.

Sean said...

Well that sure cracks me up too. MB

Bibi said...

I laughed when I finally saw the photo after it loaded...I was imagining something else entirely. I have a couple of crackpots on my terrace....and a few in our apartment building....

Paula said...

That's a nice picture.

Buenos Aires Photoblog said...

Lovely shot! I agree with Paula, the crack really adds to the scene.

Beautiful photo of a picturesque (and inoffensive) crackpot. It looks like a Tuscan coppo, or at least the same kind of vase...

brattcat said...

Haha. I thought it was going to be a self-portrait!

Jim K said...

Took me a bit to find the crack, guess I was looking for a plumber.

Ilse said...

Lovely photo of a charming scene. Running across a scene like this just makes my day. Thank you.

Halcyon said...

Luckily my neighborhood doesn't have any of these!

@ Brattcat - Oh boy, you're always one jump ahead of me! Very funny! :-))

A neighbor has two with the same crack, at their walkway. Exact same crack design. I want to turn one around each time I pass so it's not so obvious.

I don't know what they're called, but the plant grows like crazy in flower beds and needs constant cutting back. Looks great in the pot and would make a britiful painting. .

Tricia said...

You sooo make me laugh

Wolynski said...

Ha ha, very funny. I'm the crackpot in my neighborhood and it looks just like me.

Cezar and Léia said...

Beautiful vase!
It has very good taste, it is very fashion, loved the wig!
LOL

Okay, just kidding, but this base is cute!

Jacob, you will have to remember to show us the explosed pot. Yes?

JM said...

I like old clay pots even when cracked.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Hahaha. Too bad the pot is cracked though. I like it's shape and neutral colour.

Jacob said...

@ EG - I think these pots are made that way...somehow people think a cracked pot has more character than whole pot. I'd like a whole lot of cracked pots!

jusdealem said...

Haha good one, Jacob!

Jacob said...

@ Safe Leif - That's funny. Your neighbor said the same thing! Heh. Heh.

Virginia said...

I thought I was the neighborhood crackpot! However, I really like this one.
