Not Wsed ....

PVickOctober 1, 2006

... but pretty nonetheless.

Hibiscus 'Cotton Candy', 2nd year for me. Has been dropping buds like mad all summer, and NOW it decides to bloom!

Aster 'Purple Dome', another sophomore baby:

Caladium 'Thai Beauty'. gorgeous foliage, even underneath:

Now, these grocery-store bell peppers were WSed and very tasty:

Hope you enjoy!

So very pretty and health looking! The color of the asters is eye-popping! A tribute to WSing and patience.

Nice pictures, pvick
I wonder why that Hibiscus decided to show off a bloom now?
I'm glad it did, because even though I thought I didn't like Hibiscus, this makes me think maybe I do like some of them :-)
Thank you for sharing those with us

I like the caladium- I haven't grown any of those for several years now- they are so pretty! Love, Love that blue sky behind them!

PV, that hibiscus blossom reminds me of camellias, it's so pretty. Isn't it nice to have a special treat this time of year?

The asters are a fall favorite of mine, they grow wild here and add a ton of color, mixed with goldenrod.

Your caladium would be a perfect color to pair with my rose canna, for a truly tropical look.

Nice peppers!
