For many years I've admired this not for sale pot at Dragonfly Farms Nursery. For some reason, I never photographed it so I stole this image from their website. Anyway, in all my looking, I never found another like it. Heidi said that the company went out of business.
Recently on a visit to Bainbridge Gardens during their "Sizzling Hot Summer Sale" (40%, 50%,70% off select items) something caught my eye in a sale area. Could it be? There it was, 40% off but that cream color isn't my favorite. Asking if there were any other colors, the nice lady at Bainbridge Gardens said no and that they couldn't get more. This was it. Should I buy it or leave it? What would you do?
Maybe a color treatment of some sort? Perhaps the copper paint verdigris treatment for the cream part with a copper or black spray painted rim? It could either be gorgeous or horrible. If it worked out, it would approximate the colors of Heidi's pot. Nah, I left it behind.
But then, I thought about it for a couple of days and called to see if it was still there. Wouldn't want to waste an hour drive each way to find that it had been sold. It was bigger than I remembered and took two of us to move and load it into the plant mobile.
Now the question is where will I put it?
The color is growing on me as it would show up well in a shady spot. Would you try to change the color or leave it as is?
