I like the combination of your plants - shades of gree foliage and flowering plants! So refreshing and relaxing. Lovely.
Thanks for posting your photos.

Great pics. How do you over winter your Banana and your terestrial orchid?

Thanks everyone!

Anita, it's a hardy (to zone 6) Banana: Musa basjoo...stays in the ground all year.
All I do it put 3 lawn bags of leaves around the trunk in the fall, to mulch it for the winter.

The terrestrial orchid is completely hardy too, no mulch needed. :)
