Flowers above, flowers below

This unusual "flowerpot" and its shadow greet you just outside the entrance to Jerusalem's military cemetery on Mount Herzl.
(More about this beautiful and moving place under my label "Mt. Herzl.")

That is a big flower pot and I think wonderful to be part of a roundabout.

My mother would flip to see a flower display like that! She's a big gardening enthusiast!

Lovely, Dina, but I'm still contemplating Na Nach and the Breslovs. Now I understand why, when we lived in Pittsburgh, why people walking to the synagogue were talking to themselves.

That planter is so eye catching! I like the flowers radiating around the axis on the top and the bottom. Nice shadows underneath, nice park!

The flower pot is a great way to bring some natural life into the ever so urban city. Lovely shot!

I really like that marvelous and innovative "flower pot" and it seems high enough to provide shade too.

Hey Harriet said...

I've never seen a 'flowerpot' like that before! It's very lovely and unique, with a refreshing shadow! I'm not sure I'd be tall enough to see and admire the flowers on the top though!

Pietro said...

Really nice and ornamental!

You said it: unusual, and quite beautiful in its own way...

Dina said...

Shalom and thank you, all, for your reactions.
I wasn't sure what to call this big "flowerpot." Could it be a classified as a sculpture?
Couldn't fine any info about it.

GreensboroDP Jan, really?? You heard them talking in the street?
