I thought these 2 pics of Faye.s are interesting with the back light from late afternoon sun.









A Cordyline in the same area.

Beautifully captured!

How I wish that my climate would allow me to plant my Calatheas in the garden - instead, I must keep them potted and move them into my glasshouse during our winter months.

Alas, I haven't the wisdom to simply not grow "problem" plants. hammer
I am from Florida (originally), and I guess that tropical blood will always flow through my veins. Very Happy
Most years my little corner of the world does not see any snow accumulation - but, *sigh* we unfailingly do have some spells of freezing weather.

Canna Worms it must be more frustrating for you as you have lived in Florida.

If only I weren't sooo stubborn! (or at least if I was bright enough to acclimate *blush*), but I think that my dear hubby has given up hoping that I'll change,
he keeps saying that we must retire to Florida.

PS - I have just had a quick look at your blog, Pitta (only scratched the surface, really) - and I just had to tell you how FAB it is! The plants are so much like what I always grew in Florida, actually.
I'm looking forward to really digging in.
