Re: clay pots/Dillon Seed Co

I remember when my husband and I first bought our house.  He left most
decorating choices to me.  For some reason, though he became enamored of
this horrible giant oriental carving encased in a black lacquered glass
cabinet.  I couldn't imagine that thing in my house, but who was I to say
"no"?  It was his house too.  So I set about expalining scale to him and how
our rooms were too small to do justice to such a piece.  thank goodness it
worked.  Later he found a beautiful oriental rug for which I praised his eye
for quality.

There's a piece in a recent Fine Gardening mag that shows how a designer
used such a tub in a small garden.  All you see is the top as it is inside a
sort of raised bed that surrounds a patio.  Very chic.  If your DH saw that,
maybe he'd go for it.
