I went to one of our local gardening centers yesterday to buy new coco mats for the baskets that hold Boston Ferns on the front porch.
(which I also ended up buying ..the ferns I mean)
I will just confess, I have NO willpower when it comes to resisting plants, especially if there is a bloom attached, so it was really hard to resist filling a cart with flowers.
I did pretty well..... however.... this cyclamen came home with me for a touch of color in the house along with a Gerbera Daisy for the porch.
I put it in this old flower pot given to me by a friend. It had been in storage for quite a while and was dusty and dirty. I brought it home, soaked in soapy water with a bit of bleach and cleaned it up. It has a few age spots, but I love, love, love the color and just look at the form.
Pretty scalloped border and swirled sides. It has an attached saucer and other than a few stains, in really good condition.
It doesn’t take much to make me happy.
I know my daughter and my sister both will covet this little flower pot, and one of them will probably end up with it one day. But for now, I am enjoying it along with it’s contents while planning what I want to plant in the yard this year.
You can see through the heart, the saucer is scalloped also….love it.
