Today, a sunny and warm Saturday, I went to the plant nursery to buy some pots and plants for the front verandah of the villa. It was lovely being amongst all the plants, smelling all the flowers. And there were so many pots, large and small to choose from, in so many beautiful colours with shiny glazes.
However, to tone in with the brickwork I chose four soft, smoky terracotta pots and then after wandering around the nursery for a while longer, picked out brunfelsia undulata with its exotic looking, creamy coloured, fragrant flowers and glossy leaves. The pots actually match my garden buddha that you can see reflected in the window glass. They look great and I'm very happy with my choice!
