A different kind of flower pot

Isn't this pretty? June was outdoor home month at Apartment Therapy: NYC, and this detail from an apartment in Romania struck me as a charming way to use an extra teapot. Extra points for getting it to grow through the spout.

Of course, while teapots have long been recognized as good alternatives to traditional flower pots, tea cups are generally too small for planting. Fortunately, San Francisco Apartment Therapy found a solution in the form of a teacup planter. According to the site,
while Gitta's Plant Cup planter could probably hold a gallon or two of English Breakfast tea, we think you're better off filling it daisies or tulips.
I can't say I endorse that conclusion.
