Time for Tea?

Tea Time

Maybe not!


For months, in this unusual teacup plant pot, there have been just the dried up leaves of a long dead plant.Β (No rain and left unwatered one too many times!)

Till finally I replenished it with this little Dianthus. It tolerates the heat very well and is such a happy colour.

Now, as long as I remember to water it!


post script: For size comparison, that is a brick the teacup is sitting on; the cup being 15 cm in diameter. Can you imagine the size of its companion teapot?

    Hello there! I wandered my way here through a reblog of one of your posts on Pamela’s site. I have enjoyed reading a few posts of yours. I look forward to exploring this space more but that will have to wait for now.Just thought I’d say hi while I am here. Cheers.

      It is actually a plant pot – I bought it as such at a Garden Centre – I just love the teacup shape. πŸ™‚
      Someone else commented that they used an old teapot for a plant pot – that’s a good idea. πŸ™‚
      And Thank you πŸ™‚ I do like dianthus too πŸ™‚

    I love dianthus! Sadly, I think mine died last winter. I don’t know if I’ll replace it, I’m kinda over doing the same thing and looking for different results πŸ˜‰
    I’ll probably pick something different.

      Dianthus is my “go to” plant, as it hasn’t let me down yet. πŸ™‚
      I’m sure you’ll think of something good to try out instead – you have lots to choose from. πŸ™‚
