... but pretty nonetheless.

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

Another bloom opened today ...

Aster 'Purple Dome', another sophomore baby:

Michaelmas daisy 'Purple Dome'

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

Blue Sky

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

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

RE: Not Wsed ....

aaahhh, another group of wonderful pics! the colors are stunning- I think you must have 2 green thumbs!

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!

thanks for posting,

That cotton candy is really nice! Love it.

RE: Not Wsed ....

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!


RE: Not Wsed ....

How do you do it, PV? Tropical and lush! Your Caladium photo is really cool, too~
