It is Garden Blogger’s Foliage Day, but since I’m away I’ll post tomorrow. Until then, I’ll leave you with a few quick photos captured this morning.
I’m exceptionally happy to show you this photo of the first leaf of our new hardy Calla, ordered a couple of months ago from Plant Delights Nursery, which died back and completely disappeared in less than two weeks from planting. A mystery….
But I dug the bulb and moved it into a large pot in the nursery with good potting soil. A new leaf emerged last week, and I planted it up yesterday with the beautiful gift of ‘Heron’s Pirouette’ hardy Begonia we received last Saturday from a generous gardener. The pot sits here in the shade of the house all day after a little morning sun. I don’t expect the Calla to bloom this fall, but it will give its beautiful spotted leaves. It lives!
On the subject of gardeners and sharing: next week, I plan on sharing some of the baby Colocasia multiplying in our garden . I’m also committed to sharing some Iris with friends far and near, and also some of the perennial Blue Mist Flower.
If you live nearby, please send me a note if you’d like to try some of the Colocasia “China Pink.”
That begonia is nearly black! It looks great with the other foliage – so pretty! Hope you had a great weekend.
It is different in different light. It gets a lot of light in that spot .
Enjoyu your away time.
love the swallowtail photo, nice shot!!
