From here, the clay pot at the top of the 3 pots doesn’t look so bad, does it?
You knew, however, with a title like “more Sabi than wabi” that something was wrong. This is the top view of the pot–the one that made the Spoiler ask if I were throwing everything away.
This pot is a Guy Wolff pot. But even if it weren’t, it’s still functional. I am sure none of you noticed this huge imperfection all summer when I had the mandevilla growing in it. Here’s a shot of what that looked like.
The pink mandevilla is just beyond the geranium/sweet potato vine combo. And yes, you can partly see a chunk out of the side of the pot even in this photo. But do you? No–not unless I call your attention to it.
And that’s why I keep the pot. It’s one of my favorites.
