When we lived in our previous home, we had a small garden and so plants in pots became the thing to do.
We have a much, much bigger garden now and so pots are becoming less important in our lives.
One of the plants I had success with in a pot was a calibrachoa with beautiful deep pink flowers.
I asked my brother to plant it into our garden here and in the last few weeks it has taken off and is looking more splendid than ever.
But wait, there's more.
Lurking behind the calibrachoa is a concrete cat in a very relaxed state and he just happens to be positioned next to the catnip plant that some cats really love and have been known to get high on.
Could our concrete cat have been indulging? After all the catnip is reaching, tantalisingly so, towards his mouth.
