These metal steps were a Mother's day present and come in very useful for small pots although like most things in my garden the posts overcrowd and you don't get a good look at the stand.

I like my little table and it is a good size for the narrow terrace.

I thought Mike came up with a good idea for holding a pot and it helps disguise the water barrel.

Not easy to see but on the roof are house leeks. An old wives tale was that it protected the house from lightening.

Other house leeks on the slope near the garage.

After a good prune the first of the season these house leeks can be seen better.

Just to see how much it grows nearly as much as a Russian vine.

After a trim all looks much better.
