Edible Arrangement: Flower of the Day, Oct 2, 2018

I loved this edible arrangement in the jardiniere outside the Northern Hotel in Billings. Did you know jardiniere can mean either the pot or a garnish of mixed vegetables? So this is a double jardiniere.

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.

Succulents: Flower of the Day, Aug 27. 2018

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.

Pencil Plant: Flower of the day, Aug 25, 2018

I have always known this plant as a pencil plant. Its scientific name is  Euphorbia Tirucalli. It is also known as a pencil cactus or milk brush, due to its white sap, but it is actually a succulent. I’ve never before seen one turn red as this one did. Click on photo to enlarge it.

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.
