For months, in this unusual teacup plant pot, there have been just the dried up leaves of a long dead plant. (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?
