Beside the path in the woodland garden I am growing Plume Delight Chinese Fringe flower, various hostas and oakleaf hydragena.
My small collection of cactus. Most were given to me by a friend in Houston.
Silver candlesticks $5
4 piece silver plated tea set $25
5 piece silver plated teaset $40 (I now have 3 silver teasets...note to self...I don't need anymore)
I couldn't resist this little bottle. It looks like the bottles in the new Harry Potter movie that hold Dreams. 50 cents
I will be posting about a quilt I finished tomorrow.
Bye for now,
The variegated plant in the center above is a Tapioca Plant that I purchased from Bustani Plant Farm. I have had this plant for 2 years. It is not winter hardy so I have to bring it into the greenhouse in the winter but it is worth it. It is one of those plants that gets a lot of attention from visitors.
Oakleaf Hydrangea, Acuba, Mugo Pines and Caladiums thrive in one of the shade beds in the Cottage Garden along the Charished Path.
I love these caladiums. I bought them at Walmart as bulbs for less than $5 last spring. I stick the bulbs in the ground and they are beautiful this time of the year.
This is Tovara, a plant that loves to grow in the shade. The gray underneath the plants is shredded newspapers that I am using for mulch. In the fall I will cover the newspaper with fallen leaves. By spring I should know if using newspaper is a good idea or not.
I found this turtle in my compost bin this week. You can tell I have been throwing whole vegetables in the pile.....yes, I know they are supposed to be chopped into smaller pieces. But this guy is pretty happy with me.
Bye for now,
