Pots

I like pots.  I like unique pots.  I don't like faddish pots, or pots that take away from the plants/flowers therein.  Don't get me wrong.  They can be bright and colorful, but not obnoxious.   This pot was given to me by my sister's South African mother-in-law.  I think it's great!   While I was re-potting about a month ago this pot was inhabited by the remains of a grass (the cousin to corn).   I was trying to figure out where to put these Pansies, and they kept asking to be put here.  

"No,"  I said "You will look ridiculous with the grass.  I am not going to do that."

"No, we won't."  They insisted.  "That is where we want to be potted.  We don't like any of the others you have here."  

 I ignored them for about fifteen minutes, and finally gave in.  Pansies are very persuasive flowers.  

They didn't look half bad, and at first I thought my little stalk would be pleased at the company.  Little did we know that the Pansies were not planning on co-habitation.  They were aiming for pot domination.  Which they did; I still like them, though.

Thanks for visiting my blog, Red Clover. I too like your pot and I know all about pansies - they are tough little creatures! Am trying to work out whether you are in the US or the UK but you don't give me much to go on.

Hi Redclover, I like what you did here, or at least what the pansies made you do! As well and the pot and the plant I also like the stand - what I can see of it. Bob.

thank you for your nice complements, I do believe the flower is a verbena don't know what type.

Weaver of Grass...I'll take that as a compliment seeing as how I have many ancestors from the UK, my maiden name is Hall, and my husband and I both lean to British rock, style, etc. It's in the blood you see. I have spent about a month bashing around the UK and I felt like I was visiting my Grandmother's house at times.

I actually live in the USA and currently reside in a city at the base of the Rocky Mountains. They are stunning today as I walk up my stairwell, covered in fresh snow, and patterns of the waning sun.

Pansies are tough. They are surviving this weather just fine.

I like that pot!!! Pansies and pots got so well together. You are doing such a neat job of your garden. Better than I am. Horse and calf in the garden..not a good idea.
