The long wait
It has been pouring with glorious rain, the past few days and we are very happy.
After the dry, hot summer spell we have been having it was lovely to get back out in the garden again and plant out a few plants.
My belated Christmas /birthday present has finally arrived and the long wait was so worth it. I have always loved these wonderful Anduze pots. They were imported from France and after the wait of over 11 months, happy to finally have them.
The pots are made in the small town of Anduze, located in the South of France, since the 16th century. The design has endured and Artisans are still making these beautiful garden urns by hand, the same way their anchestors did. They come in many colours,
we chose the Antique Patina and love the garland of flowers and ornate design.
We chose a Standard ' Prunus Nobilis Bay Laurel' to plant in them and this plant is great, that it is evergreen, has fragrant leaves and is ideal for cooking.
Enjoy the rest of the week
