It looks pretty cool. One of the lessons we learn in flower arranging is not to have too many different types of flowers, it can look busy. But your plants have a unifying colour, can't wait to see it fill in.

I love the look of that big pot. I've been planning on experimenting with hypertufa this summer to make some pots and troughs - one that size and shape is definitely on the list.

Hi CGL. Don't Hypertufa and drive. It's dangerous you know. And now I'll go and look it up.
