Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

For the Ones That Just Keep on Going and Going

I am so thankful for the flowers and plants that just keep blooming and blooming and showing off their colors.  Without these my yard would seem so drab and monotonous.  So here's to:

Coleus!




Joe Pye Weed


Phlox



Begonias


Black-eyed Susans

Great colors, Marcia... I've seen those Joe Pye Weed plants all over the place --and never knew what their name was....

I have some Begonia hanging baskets also. They provide color and very little care!!!!

The Coleus is gorgeous.. We saw some at Biltmore. Gorgeous!

Hugs,
Betsy

These are troopers, aren't they? You have some beautiful coleus, unusual colors.

Those were real stunners for me this year. Very unusual for coleus. And they have done so well too!

I saw them first in WV many many years ago on a nature walk at a state park. Didn't realize then I could plant my own.

Aren't the coleus lovely? I think I'll have to take cuttings to have some next year too.
