Rose coloured spectacles

This display of pansies is testimony to the strength of positive thinking....


Without even a level base to stand it on, it defies the odds to balance on a ledge and brighten an otherwise unremarkable spot.

To the right of the photo, a rose climbs its way up the drain pipe; soon to add its blooms to the display.

For the bigger picture, with yet  more planting on show, see below:


I would hazard a guess that the person who gardens here is of a sunny disposition and will make the most of what life puts their way.

I take my hat off to their determination to make it work!
