Practice pots

Weather: Mild. Sporadic heavy & light showers. The sun broke through a few times.

I was drenched after finishing in the Exotic Garden today, it was like having a shower. It is saturated with water from the past couple of days. Can't say that the Dahlias are liking it so much as I remove colourful (and brown) sludge from the plants. I also had to replace a Impatiens balfourii that had completely died back with a Ricinus communis 'Zanzibariensis' and stake a few odd bits.

I got a bit carried away with sprucing up the potted plants in front of The Loggia. I treated it like one of the pots display areas and took to it with relish combining & composing different plants together.
