The art of the terracotta pot!

They are mere vessels for something grander…
Aged and unkempt lurking behind doors

They cluster in uncluttered ways…

Always appealing …

Filling corners to perfection…
Occasionally a little worse for wear…
The art of the terracotta pot…
is simply beautiful!

    Love this post. I've just been commenting on the wonderful pots (and their plants) that we've seen in Greece! You've inspired me to photograph them!

  • I'm repotting anything that survived the winter this weekend and hoping to bring them all outside. Hope there are no more chilly nights! I'd love some Bougainvillea in a pot xxcat

    Great series of photos! I really like them all, but the one with the cat in it is my favorite.

    I like this series of photographs too. I wonder one thing ..though the beautiful place is located near sea side and still the paintings of walls so fresh.
    Nice designs of pots as well.
