The Weekly Photo Challenge theme of Rare has provided the perfect opportunity for me to post pictures I would, in any case, have featured today:
This garden-on-a-table is an exhibit at the Durban and Coast Horticultural Society, to illustrate the importance of design, at Durban’s annual Sustainable Living Exhibition. (The ‘accidental’ substitution of an ‘o’ for one ‘i’ there would have given rise to much interest, no doubt!) :) The show runs from today (Friday) to Sunday.
I made the wooden frame and prepared the metal container — an old drip-tray for a geyser — while the rest was done by Much Better Half and her sister. All the plant material is real and growing, and the central ‘paving tiles’ were cut out of egg-boxes. This is the Garden Judges’ subsection’s contribution to the DCHS stand. There are numerous other things going on there.
