Have you ever noticed how beautiful a pot can look left completely empty in the garden? Perhaps you think that a garden pot left empty is sad and not very appealing? You believe a pot is meant to contain something, like soil with flowers, or water turning it into a fountain. Most pots call to be filled. They have drain holes encouraging you to plant a favorite flower or shrub in them and they can provide super drainage. All good points!
However, there is something special about a pottery left empty. Especially when you display it along an entry way to a home or deep in the center of a lush garden. Need something to add color, place one under a green tree and leave it empty. This emptiness draws your eye to it and let's your imagination soar. You wonder why? Why was it left empty. Is it being displayed like a piece of artwork? Maybe you are just leaving it empty temporarily until you figure out what you want to plant in it.
Just know in your heart that it's OK to leave a garden pot empty. You don't always have to do the norm. Take your time deciding. Let it sit in a place where you can view it from inside the home and take your time deciding what to do with it. Purchase a bright blue pot and surround it with blue glass that reflects the light. Add water and make it a water feature or leave it empty and just admire the color and beauty of the lines.
