Winter at Jo's place

I'd love some antique famille rose Chinese pots for my patio area but it ain't gonna happen on my budget. Thought I'd cheer up the space with some teapots and teacups from Chinatown instead. It's still winter here (if you can call 23° Celsius winter) so by spring my little plants should be green and lush. And the dump truck? I couldn't resist a 50c rusty truck from a garage sale around the corner to hold a few transplanted daffodils. When they're out I'll move it onto my kitchen counter for some fun. Can you believe it's mid winter here and the daffodils are almost out? I love the subtropics!

Thes chinese pots look great. Very affordable deco if you are on a budget.

I think I'm going to get a few more. The gardening bug has bitten and I'm taking cuttings of everything.

Oooh, I'm thinking of buying a little Chinese tea set now, and starting my herb garden. Or re-starting is probably more accurate, since my parsley gave up the ghost... Thanks for the great idea!
