In July 2013 I posted this photo of my back alley fence on my tumblr blog:
With the caption: “I’m pretty sure someone is going to steal these”
As of last fall, someone has. But they took the metal pot-holders, not the plastic pots inside – they left those on the ground, where they are still sitting, a monument to humanity’s lack of morals. I should make a little plaque.
Anyway, it was hard to find plastic pots that fit nicely inside those metal ones, and I was sort of annoyed at the waste of my effort but also feeling like I had gotten my comeuppance over the pot thief, like: well, good luck finding a pot that will fit in there, dummy.
