Watch out'll have that pot over if you're not careful!

I went to the Laing Art Gallery (Newcastle) a couple of weeks ago to see a couple of temporary exhibitions. Included in "Love" (ended yesterday, 13th July) is Isabella and the Pot of Basil by Holman Hunt which is part of the Laing's permanent collection....she's off on-tour until later in the year, glad I caught her before she went! Actually, it's not so much Isabella, more the embroidered orange cloth underneath the pot that makes me want to reach out and touch. Bon voyage!
