Some very creative art work from our school's 5th graders would look nice in any garden.
Wish I could make this!
We have a great art teacher.
The back yard. I LOVE tropical plants and especially FOLIAGE.
Knock, knock? Who's there?
Looks like a green anole.
Drought? What drought? You should have seen this poor backyard one year ago.
A leaf on a leaf on a leaf. I promise, I found it this way.
I'll probably never find another in my lifetime.
A view from the arm chair.
Some fuzzy bees have a meeting on the native goldenrod.
They like foliage follow-up a lot more than 'just grow a lawn' follow-up.
There are lots of different textures in the front garden.
Rosemary looks great with agaves.
The artemesia needs a haircut next to this stylish dwarf yaupon.
Agaves, purple ajuga, palm grass, purplish loropetalum, monkey grass, carpet grass, a palm frond, a chi-chi Ruellia, and.... a partridge in a pear tree (just joking...it just seemed to fit).
The back pathway.
This is my favorite foliage leaf. There are 600 species of Dioscorea in the air potato family.
Unfortunately, I don't remember the name of this one.
It lived through the drought and the freezes, so it's a keeper.
I'll leave you with some more charming butterflies and tropical art.
Thanks for fluttering by!
Watch out for the snake!
