Moss Rose DOWN....


 I took above photo Tuesday evening as part of a coming soon post, and Wed. 4 AM, Bob let the dogs out and there was a critter as in possum sitting on the table, the dogs leapt, the possum leapt the table went over end to end and catapulted  the big pot 6 feet away onto the  concrete pool deck


Never Fear... the plant is salvaged and when I placed the 30 plus pieces of the clay pot in the bucket.... You Know The Rest Of The Story...

first I aimed La Camera at the bottom of the bucket and SNAPPED!


and then....... and then.... I "PICMONKEYED" IT!  because I could....

and the root bound plant now has a bigger better home and lives happily ever after....

Nice recovery. You are lucky it wasn't a shunk:-)

Well they say everything happens for a reason and this happened for a very good reason :)
So what is the lightbulb for in the plant?
I seriously like bucket as a backdrop for the picture of the clay pot pieces. Did you use a flash for that or was it bright enough that you didn't have to?

A few pieces of broken pot produces a great picture, amazing.
It's all how the eye sees it...

I like the comment that you were lucky it wasn't a skunk!

Actually, I would have loved to see the action.

Why the lightbulb...?

I love your never ending adventures.
Critters causing repotting and another chapter of madsnapper....

Val said...

It was all meant to be!!! :) Happy Weekend.

Betsy Adams said...

Ahhhh--you take such good care of your pretty plants. That moss rose probably needed to be re-potted anyhow since it was root-bound. SO--I guess it all happened for the best.
Hugs,
Betsy

Glad you were able to save them!

Ginny said...

Oh my gosh! So now the plant is n better shape than before! And the flowers still look pretty. the PicMonkey looks like the end of the world in flower language.

SweetMarie said...

Glad the flowers survived! :) cool bucket shots!

S. Etole said...

Looks like you salvaged it well.

Eva Ason said...

I'm glad the flowers survived, they look nice in the new pot. Like your pic monkey edit :)

Auntie sezzzzzz... said...

sorry about the disaster, but glad your pretty plant has a new bigger home.

a light bulb in with plants! yikes, you have me baffled.

Which isn't nice to do (baffle) a person with a head full of cotton. Or it feels that way, anyway. lol

Maple Lane said...

How creative you are! Glad the plant is happy again and I enjoyed your photos.

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

This plant may well reward you with loads of flowers now.

George said...

I love stories with happy ending.

SquirrelQueen said...

Hahaha, that crash probably work up a neighbor or two. At least everything turned out well, the plant got a new pot and MadSnapper got photos of broken pot.

Is the light bulb a solar power experiment?

Deb said...
