Should guests at this wedding have expected anything less?
I just posted a comment (awaiting moderation) on a Design Sponge before & after blog entry.
The photos show off a very nice kitchen and dining room but the pots the plants sit in don't have any saucers/basins for the water to collect. And this brings up something that continues to vex me. Here's my comment, for reference:
I’m confused by the potted plants. Are they live plants? If so, are they in cache pots? I’m wondering about how you water them since I don’t see any saucers to collect excess water. Most of my plants have saucers and they’re not the most attractive items in the world. Any suggestions out there for how to reduce their use without trading up to unusually large cachepots?
I've wanted new pots for my plants for at least two years. Possibly five. I think this mostly suggests I'm a bad shopper. And also terrible at signing up for things because I really have considered taking a pottery class to create what I want. Am I terrible at finding the right pots? I'm really at a total loss. Can someone please step in and help me out? Pretty please! I'll give you a small cutting from one of my jade plants for your help!
And for those curious about my plant collection (and how I used to post to the internet much more frequently), check out my "plants section." Alas, many of these plants have seen their lives come to unfortunate ends.
