    A lovely combination of plants!

    I don't think the pun was intended, but your headline made me think that our Republic is "A Work In Progress." I have some concerns about the direction of our evolution, but I'll save them for a political blog.

    I always enjoy your posts.

    Do you work in the three components of "Fill, Thrill & Spill" when potting plants/flowers?

    Belle – Thank you.

    Anon – Thank you, for the plant comment and about my blog too. I suppose I do mean it about our republic too. My concerns may be different than yours – as long as we all do our best to shoulder some of the work in process that we feel needs doing.

    Mater :)

    Anon – No! What are these components? I must look them up! I am guessing it means cram in enough plants to fill, stand one up high and dramatic, and spill one over the side? In which case, yes, instinctively, I did. But I love the saying.

    You certainly have a green thumb and an eye for beautiful combinations.

    I would have guessed that you would have used a hand-thrown pot patinated with moss and lichens. I guess they have to start somewhere. I hope your pot grows as beautifully as your plants.
