wind up in square pots
and look great
Our 52 Week Photo Challenge Prompt: NATIVE
Ronovan’s Weekly Haiku Challenge Prompts: FRESH and WIND
The Horsetail is a NATIVE on all continents apart from Antartica, and so is the buttercup, they have been since prehistoric times according to Auntie Internet. They both love my garden and there is rather too much of them, but I do like them both very much so we rub along!
Joining In a Vase on Monday -a wonderful weekly international garden party, hosted by Cathy.
The little square acrylic painting is one of mine. I did it some years ago when I got a teeny bit obsessed with squares as a kind of aid to meditation, I did masses of them in all different colourways. The colours and shape went so perfectly with the flowers, I thought I’d get it out of mothballs as a background for the ‘IAVOM’.
I really like how the colours fit in with my other pots, here is my African Violet doing it’s fabulous thing again! Such as good strong colour. I’m glad I took cuttings as I seemed to manage to kill off two plants during the winter, along with three orchids 😦
Another Chelsea Flower Show find, these glazed cubes came from Chive.com
At the show there were shelves and shelves of these ‘Puzzle Pooleys‘ all in two tone mixes.
My sister and I were fascinated by them and I just loved the colours. As we were playing around with the colour combinations we were asked by an official photographer if they could take our photo as a possible entry in next year’s Chelsea Flower Show Guide! Wouldn’t it be fun to see ourselves in that!! I know they must have taken hundreds more so I don’t suppose we will make the final cut but it did add another sparkle to our glorious day.
You can join in with the Photo Challenge any time and add a poem or not, just as you like, add a link to your post in the comments below and I will include your entry in the Round Up on Sunday. Happy Snapping!
