Sunny September Sunday Shots

Joyce(Zone 7b LI, NY)September 11, 2005

It was a beautiful sunny, cool & crisp Autumn-like day today...perfect for taking pix!

A hardy terrestrial orchid: Habenaria radiata aka Flying Crane Orchid

Sedum 'Neon'

Miniature hostas and moss by the 'Pondsai'

I can't stop taking pix of my Passionflowers!

Funky juxtaposition...Caladium, Dicentra scandens, and a little Spigelia marylandica.

'Cherry Parfait'

Sagittaria australis 'Benni' Silk Stockings...

Again...

Silk Stockings.... with a run? ;)

Geranium with Dark Purple Oxalis...

Thanks for looking!

Oh my gosh! You wouldn't happen to have any of the crane orchid for trade would you? I would trade you a division of a doubled blood root! Sanguinaria canadensis forma multiplex. Your pictures are soooooo beautiful!

Thanks everyone! My gardens are my sanctuary from the real world.
No need for happy pills or liquor...
I just garden!

klavier, I'll email you from home, once I get a chance.
Might have one tiny division for you.

Wow, double Wow!!! Just beautiful. I love the crane flowers - well actually I love all of them. The neon sedum, what zone is that good to? I would love to have one of those but I'm a zone 3 so not sure if it would grow here or not. Thank you for sharing those wonderful pictures.

Now you've gone and given away the secret about why my photos are not as clear as your's. :)

And those are great pics.
