Creeping Charlie and Chinese Garlic Chives


They shoulder out my succulents and commandeer my grass.

Perky little coins of green, they have a lot of brass.
Chinese garlic lifts white heads a bit above the fray.
Although they’re uninvited guests, I guess they’re here to stay.

Actually, no flowers today, just succulents.  I wanted to show you the novel means used to display them at the Hacienda of Seventeen Gardens in Guanajuato.

Baby Slippers: Flower of the Day, June 25, 2018

Contrary to what you might think, not related to Lady Slippers.  Technically not a flower, but couldn’t resist this shot from my friend Gloria’s low entrance wall along her front sidewalk.

Tradescantia, asparagus ferns, philodendron and a small pepper tree furnish company for this pineapple grown from a pineapple top I laid on top of the soil in a planter months before this photo was shot. Not quite a flower, but as pretty as one.
