About a month ago, I took the day off and head over to Annie’s Annual. The sun was just coming up, and the plants were looking striking such as this Gazania krebsiana . South African native…I read that this low growing ground cover is a source of food for some tortoises.
There’s always a great collection of eclectic objects in their garden.
We have the silver version of this guy, Primula polyantha. I know ours has been loaded with flowers ever since planting it in our garden. Looks like the gold is just as floriferous.
Morning sun was spilling over the fence on this patch of Cotyledon orbiculata var. orbiculata. When planting succulents with glaucous leafs, I try to be delicate as the waxy surface rubs off easily.
I had a rare opportunity to check out some of their growing areas not open to the public. Here’s one of their many propagation greenhouses. Lots O Little babies.
Hum…still on the fence with Violas, but they’re growing on me and Viola ‘Etain’ is helping make the switch.
Another little plant with big bang for the small foot print, Heliophila longifolia should find its way into one of our containers soon. We can always use a little more color in our garden.
Morning sun lighting up the tips of this Echeveria subrigida. I ran around like a mad man burning off film before the sun rose too high in the sky. I always feel like early morning and late evenings are the best photo ops for plants…with bright over cast days coming in third.
It was challenging to select only a couple pics and there are a bunch more on our Flickr.
I know Kale is edible, but can’t say I have ever prepared it. Are these specialty Kales okay to eat?
Great vine this Kennedia nigricans. Gotta love a plant that has black flowers…sorta gardening gone Goth. Makes me want to build some sort of over head arbor to host our own plant party.
