“It’s like…. magic”

Magic in the palm of my hand.

I have had a lot going on that has kept me away, but have a folder full of gems to share. I’ll start with this little one.

Parrots Beak (Lotus Berthlotii)

Parrots Beak (Lotus Berthlotii) Native to: Canary Islands, Cape Verde Islands, Tenerife.. and happens to really enjoy our front yard. It’s grown quite a lot since I took these images, I’ll have to take some updates. We’ve had it five months now and seems to really like this spot it’s in. We’ll bring it inside for the winter months. 

I love this plant.

I call this “our flaming bush”. It has a wonderful soft texture to it.

Blue Dawn Flower (Ipomeoa Indica)

Here is our much loved Dawn Flower (Ipomeoa Indica — also known as blue morning glory, oceanblue morning glory, koali awa, and blue dawn flower) in a brilliant display this year. It claims to enjoy full sun.. but ours has mostly shade and is quite happy, much to our enjoyment.

Up close. Didn’t realize the one flower was ripped.. must have been one of the crows or squirrels that like to eat them as snacks. The humming birds drink them from the back of each flower, most unusual to watch. 

In sun

Harder to see, but the best display day.. in early morning shade.

Baby Violets

I had forgotten about this image. One of my families Sweet Violet plants had been damaged last year on accident, I had put it in water in an attempt to save it – (which it worked for those interested, replanted and re-established) It wasn’t until I placed the remains of the plant in water that I realized it had seed pods on the base of the stem cluster.

The next morning the pod opened and dropped the seeds into the bottom of the dish. I never knew what Sweet Violet seeds looked like having been given the plant originally as a cutting to spread around my yard, so this was a wonderful experience. My families favourite flowers.

Red

Here is one of my families ol’ friends. We’ve had this hardy red geranium.. for what must be at least a decade now. We take trimmings of it and spread it around the yard, and friends yards. It’s a happy plant.

Pink

Purchased some new flowers for the yard to bring some desperately needed colour back in. The areas frost at the New Year forced me to trim everything back. There are new leaves at the base of my ol’ friends, but they are far from flowers themselves. The new ones are all safe against the house and I bring them in on colder nights (goes from 80º F down to 42º F at night!!). Here is a pretty Pink crawling geranium. It’s a tiny plant now, but when it matures and cascades over the side of the window sill it’s going to be very pretty!!
