In Bloom #30 +Dogwood Berries

What a lovely color combination from the red berries and green, although fading, leaves of the dogwood tree.  I found this article rather interesting if you would like to harvest the berries to grow your own seedlings.  

Happy Sunday,

In Bloom #29 + Fern and Creeping Fig

This fern, an unknow variety, was transplanted from my 'other' grandmother's yard in Mississippi.  And, the creeping fig (ficus pumila) was cutting I received from my sister.  I just love all the shades of green.

The creeping fig will stay green all winter, unless it dips down in the 20's for an extended period of time, but, sadly, the fern will die back as soon as we get a good freeze. 

Happy Sunday,

In Bloom #28 + Angel Wing Begonia

In the past, I have left this Angel Wing Begonia planted in the ground and it has managed to survive over the winter.  This spring I transferred it to a pot and it got quite large and bloomed all summer.  Very soon,  I'm going to bring it indoors to see how it will do as a houseplant. 

Happy Sunday,
