Ancient terracotta artefact found!
Wow, look what I found lurking in a pot plant! Actually, if you saw this, you may not completely believe in its antiquity. Looks pretty nice.
It's lurking under the lillium plant. I bought a bulb in a "lucky dip" several years ago at a garden show, and this is the third year it's come up for us. Plants, they are such good value entertainment.
This little guy is next on the production line for terracotta-ing. He arrived in a lucky dip from a fete, and has been in the front garden ever since, but I think he'd look more cool with a paint treatment.
