Beautiful Pots and more!
Olive Oil Pot in Spain
This is how the mini revamp of the garden here at Pinks Barn began – We were visiting our friends in Spain who have four of these giant pots on the terrace. After a week of looking at them from our bedroom window, I was simply green with envy. The following weekend, Carole Weighill from Threadneedles in East Grinstead took us to visit Pots of Pithoi in Sussex!
This was my first view of the hundreds of terracotta pots they have in the garden courtyard and I was in heaven. Bill went a bit grey when he saw the price of these beauties but still encouraged me to think big!
Charming group with some planted
Many of the pots are planted or in lovely groups and this makes you want to buy even more. In the end, the size of our car had more to do with decisions, rather than the cost. Fortunately, we found their hospital or jigsaw corner where they have a few slightly damaged pots at a fraction of the original cost. Simply bliss!
The doorway to the shop!
In addition to pots from jigsaw corner, I found a lovely beehive shaped pot and then saw it turned in to a fountain and I was hooked! This is a larger version to the one I have purchased but once I have tackled the plumbing, I will take some pictures for you.
Perfect or what?
