DP WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge – Containers

This week’s challenge is to celebrate the containers in which the things are contained that we like to see. But it really depends on your perspective whether or not something is a container, or something that we like to see.

This container holds the compost that feeds our gardens.

Drops of Life
This Lady’s Mantle captures rainwater that is as necessary to its life as the compost it lies in. Thus, the garden becomes the container.

This revelation got me thinking. How else is a garden a container?

These two bees collect the pollen that is necessary to their lives and to ours as bees fulfill the act of cross-pollination necessary for us to have our own food in many cases.

To us, they are flowers, nourished by compost and rainwater. To bees and butterflies, they are containers for food, but they are also containers for the pollen that is necessary for pollination of crops, gardens and wildflowers. It is the cycle of life, from one container to another.

To see some great takes on the theme, check out this week’s photo challenge: Containers
