Six Inches of Rain
We had six inches of rain in two days from tropical storm Beryl. We hadn't had any measurable rain in a long time so it was welcome. All the plants seem to be happy after the long dry spell. Here's a coleus in my front yard with boxwood shrubs in the background. I like the contrast of different size, shape, and color of leaves in the landscape.
I made a couple more pinch pots and attached some hand formed scallop shells to the front. I used a real scallop shell impressed into the clay. The shell came from when we went scallop diving in the gulf a couple of years ago.
These are half the size of the pinch pot of the previous post. Now I'm wondering if I should put some holes in the bottom and make these planters for the kitchen counter or a window sill and make some saucers for underneath them. What do you think? Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
