In honor of the Fouth this weekend, I thought I would start out with two red beauties. The first the red Mandevilla, such a vibrant red. I love that vine. The second a 'St. Elmo's Fire' Firecracker Fern that is bursting with color. I have been "working" all week trying to learn the manual mode of my camera. There have been some ups and some downs but I think I am getting the hang of it. Thank you http://notsoangryredhead.blogspot.com/ for the tips!!!!
As I was walking around today I found a few things I thought were especially pretty today and thought I'd share. Hope you enjoy. (and no, these are not in manual mode... not quite there yet).
The Leonotis Lions Tail are starting the bloom. They are a little behind the 'Savannah's Sunset' but just as pretty.
The Purple Fountain grass are all in bloom and as usual, very pretty.
The Mexican Flame Vine has taken off!! I planted it along the fence line and it must really be happy as it is growing like mad!
Personally, I like the back of the 'Black Magic' Alocasia the best- it intrigues me. The front is black and also very pretty, but I like the back.
I know these are so common but they are in full bloom and really showing off today- just wouldn't be right not to post them.
And last but not least the canna I planted is budding and blooming away. They are such an easy plant. Hard to not like something that is so easy to maintain.
I hope everyone has a safe and happy Fouth this weekend!!!!
