One of a pair of flowerpot holders that I commissioned from potter Chris Greening – at last month’s Open Studios, which I collected today. I’m really pleased with them, and must be firm with myself that they’re about tidying up houseplant containers,, and NOT an excuse to get any more!

Chris had several pots in that shape but in brown glazes, and several pots of different shapes in this green-with-blue glaze, so I asked him to make me two specials. £50 for the pair, and I’m delighted. Collected on the Brompton bike – its first serious outing, as I’ve not really been able to cycle much for a few days due to dodgy back.
