Tea Stands for Tuesday cups and pots


As part of our house update, we had a cement walkway put in the back yard.  For years there was a brick walkway in that area but with weather and earthquakes and aging the bricks were not at all level.  Beautiful but not really safe and we are trying to correct some safety issues here.  We switched the walk to concrete.  



There is room at one end of the walk to place a few pots full of plants.  Hopefully that will soften the look of the concrete.  Here is a pot I purchased.  I was taken with the bird (which barely shows in the photo) and the color.  I'm drinking tea this morning and contemplating what kind of plant to put in it.  Something low maintenance for sure.



A local shop was having a sale.  This is some of their selection.  I think all the pots were $10 which seemed very reasonable to me.

As I drink my tea I will join Elizabeth and friends for Tea Tuesday.

I'm hoping Elizabeth can link me to the party.

  2. I'd have trouble narrowing my choice down to just one at that price, but the one with the birds that you chose would definitely have been one of them. I look forward to seeing it planted :)

    Happy T Tuesday!

  3. Sorry I was late visiting. You are now linked. I actually saw two birds on your pot. It's fabulous and I agree with Divers and Sundry that it would be hard to choose, since I love those colors.

    Thanks for sharing your tea and pot with us for T this Tuesday.

  10. It's a gorgeous flower pot. I think I would have had to buy 2 or 3 and couldn't pick just one. But then again I have a weakness for plants. Happy T day. Erika

  11. Beautiful pots at a great price, Darla. We live in a village of cobblestone streets. I can't count on all my digits the number of friends who have broken bones trying to navigate the uneven surface in the 20 years I've lived here. Slippery when wet, painful in thin soled shoes, forget wearing high heels (though many still try!).

    Happy T-Day! Hugs, Eileen
