A bowl of sunshine

It didn't cost much.  £1.50 for a tray of four seedlings, a little for the compost.  The bowl shaped pot I'd had for years.  Some decent weather and four Mesembryanthemum bedding plants turned into this after a month's growth.

It's been years since I grew them last and I'd forgotten their sparkling beauty.  They only open their faces to sunny weather and, even then, not before 10:00 in the morning.  Drought resistant and hardy, they need little attention.  Some dead heading to keep the flower crop going, normal watering and feeding and they'll respond with a long season of colour.

A bargain of a bowl.
