My word for the year - lovingly- comes to my rescue now and then. I wanted the canes for the pots to be blue but I really didn't want to be bothered painting 12 of them, until I reminded myself to do the job lovingly. It took an hour in mild sunshine, listening to the radio...I quite enjoyed it. It's all in the mindset really, isn't it.
The plan is to have sweeet pea Matucana climbing the canes and underneath callibrachoa in deep purple, clary - an intense blue, rich velvety chocolate cosmos and magenta petunias. Dark and sumptous and smelling divine.
