Southern Spain – Container Pots

Contributed by Christie Dustman

As someone who has an aversion to watering plants in pots, I have to hand it to the Spanish with their plants in clay pots.  Check out the use of clay pots in these photos.  Why keep them on the ground when you can hang them on the wall?  Just like polka dots!  As I mentioned in my first post about Spain, the inner courtyards of Spanish houses are usually tiled and don’t have extensive planting beds in the ground.  So to bring in the refreshing greenery of plants, you see many plants in pots.

And instead of paintings on the walls, you see plants in pots and painted plates hanging.  Bright colors highlighted against the whitewashed walls.  How fun!
