Today's photo was taken by assistant editor Antonio Reis while on a photo shoot this fall. He says, "When I visited Lee Reich at his home in New Paltz, New York, I noticed these Croc-esque shoes hanging from the wall of his home. Lee says that the shoes were too worn out for wearing on feet, but work splendidly when repurposed into hanging baskets filled with annuals. The holes on the shoe exterior even act as drainage points." So cute! Thanks, Tony, for spotting this and sharing it with us.
