This area could not be turned into a garden. To do that we would have had to dig up quite a bit of builder's rubbish, clay or whatever is underneath and I was just not prepared to do anymore digging! So rather than create a gardenbed, we decided to throw down pebbles instead.
The additional problem was then to find colourful pots which didn't cost a bomb. Five months later, I had to forego the colourful pots I wanted because they were just too expensive. The compromise was cheap pots in a bland colour. What a disappointment that was. I had visions of olive green pots but could not find them anywhere.
So here they are. They're not too bad, I guess. Atleast that spot is done. Now if I could just get S to get rid of those bricks & finish off that end of the bed.*rolls eyes*

Oh and the reason the yuccas are growing at an angle is that I forgot to keep turning them while they were sitting on my alfresco waiting for their pots. Hence, they grew at an angle. Silly me!
