‘Container Planting’ Loving these ‘succulent’ spike heels

I just had to share this photo from Kerry Michaels – find her on twitter on @containergarden or at

You really can plant pretty much anything in any shape, size and form of planter. It’s ever so ‘wicked witch of the west-esque’ don’t you think? That really appeals to me – reminds me of playing Evileene, the wicked witch in ‘The Wiz’ at school. Hahahahaha….

Tea is the glue that keeps me together…

My mug of tea

I love tea – really, I do. I worship at the altar of the tea plant, a hot, steaming mug of Yorkshire tea or a delicate vintage china tea cup of Assam will do me nicely thanks. Which leads me onto this quote

“If you are cold, tea will warm you.

If you are too heated, it will cool you.

If you are depressed, it will cheer you.

If you are excited, it will calm you.”  ~ Gladstone, 1865
