I've only ever seen these dainty little plants on the internet, that is until this week when I happened to spy one in my local Garden Centre, and seeing it up close in its perfectly petite form did not disappoint, though I'm not sure what I loved the most, the packaging it came in or the plant its self! So I decided to keep the little brown paper bag as well.
I also found this lovely wicker/grass tray in a local charity shop which seems to be the perfect partner for the Sophora plant. A quick tip for bringing a tray like this back to life is to spray liberally with some furniture polish, then use a soft bristle paint brush to get in between all the gaps getting rid of dust and debris, and it will come up as good as new. 👍 (I just discovered blogger has recently added emoji thingies too)
