A new pot for autumn,


This was potted up a couple of weeks ago for the front garden it it ,contains Osmanthus heterophyllus “Goshiki” a Festuca glauca grass and a Hebe the label for the Hebe was missing hence £1 price tag.
I thought I`d pop in a photo of Escallonia Gold Brian its in flower at the moment and also a new addition to the makeover photo of 6th Sept on the steps to my chat area with neighbours, as you can see I`ve added a seat and trellis made with another singer sewing machine that a neighbour gave me after he had seen the planter I`d made with moms old machine.

Your garden looks great Stroller :)) I love the pot...and the "chat spot"...and the steps....and the planting...

That planter looks lovely, and your chat spot too - but really its a 'love seat' !
I like Heron's witty remark that you'll be in stitches sitting chatting on your sewing machine seat! That was very inventive of you stroller. Wonder what Mr. Singer would think.
Our favourite restaurant in Norwich used to be in an old shoe-making factory and all the tables are made from sewing machines, with lovely shiny wood tops and as a bonus you can rest your feet on the treddle.
Your steps up to the lovely seat all looks so rustic.
