Wow karen that is very nice. I love the view from the porch. I bet it was alot of work but very well worth it. I love your new baby! Barb
You have created a beautiful garden ! The view from your front porch is amazing. You're very talented ! The plant in the 6th pic with the two toned bloom is new to me, could you tell me it's name ? Thanks for sharing !
Beautiful garden...you what are those big leaf like plants...I didn't have elephant ears or caladiums this year and missed them terribly...I bought them but they didn't grow in the ground...they grew in pots, though, the two years before that...
What Breed of horse is that little guy? He/she is really beautiful. Harriet
Barb, Thx so much")
That plant with white and purple flowers is an annual phlox called 'dutch tapestry' It comes as a mix. But this is the one That I love most. Blooms even after a few frosts- a nice easy keeper. Yes I made teh porch to have that view within a view concept.
Juanita, That is an elephant ear. Called 'Odora' Which I got at walmart in the spring as a bare bulb a few years ago. Stores well. The largest leaf measured 36 " wihtout measuring the stem too. I have them as houspants now that it is winter, as well as dormant in the basememnt.
That colt is a Missouri foxtrotter. If horses were cars this breed would be a Mercedes! There are pictures of his older brother and this ones birth in the photo gallery for pets. He was sold a few months back. Thx!
