Is there anything prettier than aged terracotta pots? I loved them way before anyone else thought they were worthy of even a second glance.
Be still my beating heart!
Redwood is nice, too - after it gets a bit old and beat up. This is the usual redwood pot we're used to seeing. Just don't do like my neighbor and paint them white and plop them all over your yard. They look worse than awful. You can only do that if it's in a intimate garden setting and even then I recommend leaving them natural.
Later today I'm going to be starting a bit of a transformation on some very inexpensive clay colored plastic pots. You'll be able to see me stumble through the whole process.
