The Queen's Pot

The best containers in your garden? So wonderful they can remain empty.
Garden & Be Well, XO Tara
Pic taken in the Bay Terrace, my front yard, from the living room. When I saw a particularly fine empty pot at Glamis Castle, one of the Queen's homes, epiphany ! Some of my pots are fabulously empty and some are planted. Please, get yourself at least one Queen's Pot.

I have a Queen's "crock" that sits on my front porch! I used to worry about leaving it empty, but then realized it was beautiful just as it was!

I agree! Some of our old, antique and vintage pots look wonderful empty in winter. In the spring and summer, I still love to give them a chance at showing off gloriously blooming plants. Lidy
