Happy Monday to all and hope everyone had a great holiday weekend!
It was chilly here this morning but is absolutely beautiful right now.
I walked around and got a few shots of some little show-off's I thought I'd share.
The Kalanchoes continue to be my favorite- the first photo and the one above being two of them. I like how this one has the little "fangs" on the underside of it's leaves- hence what I would imagine is why it got it's name.
The 'Midnight' Salvia is bursting with color- such a radiant purple. I like both, hard to choose between this and the traditional one with the purple and white.
The Mandarin Oranges are just about ready to eat. Can't wait!!!
The Mexican Flame Vine has finally burst with color on our side of the fence- forever it seemed it was solid orange on the other side but now we are getting it's showy self- the one at the entrance is loaded with blooms- can't wait for that either!
The Cigar Plant is blooming below the flame vine and I love how it picks up on the orange- it makes it showier.
The Possumhaw are doing their thing.
The Valencia Oranges are turning and will be ready soon!
The Chrysanthemum pacificum are beginning to bloom. I will admit, I was not so impressed with this plant at first, but it is growing on me- I like the silver on the backs of the leaves the most.
The 'Black Scallop' Ajuga are blooming away and looking pretty as ever.
And last but not least, I just can't pass up a Maple leaf. These little guys are a deep maroon and just scream fall to me.
