The Table of Delights – Mid Summer 2011

The Table of Delights is an arid place at the moment and somewhat neglected. I made a conscious decision this year not to have lots of summer bedding in order to avoid lots of watering and I am really pleased that I made that decision given the dry weather we have had more or less since April.

The only occupant of the Table of Delights is an Agave which I got at a plant swap at Cottesbrooke Plant Fair last year.  I think it works well in the blue glazed pot.  I did go to get the label to tell you which Agave it was but the name has vanished so if anyone knows the name of this Agave please let me know.

I realised when taking this photo that the table and chairs are overdue for a freshen up and the patio needs a serious weed in this area.

I might do a bit of a swap around and replace the  Agave with one of my many pots of Aeoniums and Echiveras the trouble is I can’t decide which one so now doubt  the Agave will stay put for a while.

I’m wondering what to put on the table for Autumn – maybe a pot of Colchicums we will have to see
