What I did with the clam shells

My husband loves the Halaan (clam) soup, so whenever it is available at our local market, surely, it will be served on our table by the next meal. This is a common Filipino dish, not my favorite, but I still eat it, and I've got a use for its shells after eating.

Filipinos are generally seafood lovers, all kinds. You know how seafood are, lots of shells being thrown away after eating. But me, nah, I do not put it in the garbage instead I've found a way to use it. Tadah!






I've just realize its light yellowish color are really cool to look at and would blend well with my garden landscape, if I may call it a landscape. So there it is now lying beautifully on my garden. But I do not just put it right away after eating though as it my attract pest, ants and flies, I washed it thoroughly first making sure all its flavors are gone so no pest would come near it.

I have planted a few seeds of ornamental pepper, petunias and another flowering plant (I forgot the name) on the pots, I hope it will soon sprout.
