Your BGLD offerings are wonderful! Isn’t is amazing the nuances of collor and the textures you can see in the foliage of plants. That is something I need to think about adding more of to my gardens. Thanks for sharing>

I have to admit my favourite is the canna leaves – those gorgeous stripes! Everything looks so green and healthy – thanks for taking part!

Thanks Becky. You know I’m a foliage fan. It adds alot to the overall look of a garden, when the blooms fade you still have something interesting to look at.
Thanks Mom. I’m glad you enjoyed my little slideshow.
Emma thank you for visiting. I am partial to the Canna leaves myself. I’m glad you enjoyed my contribution to your Big Green Leaf Day. I’m glad I could be a part of it.

All the colors and textures of the foliage is beautiful. Who needs blooms.
Thanks for checking out “Gloria”. Today I came home from work and added two more bales of pine straw. I didn’t snap a picture but she looks even more happier now.

Thank you Susie. I agree, I love foliage and texture. You are very welcome. That bed is going to become one of your favorites I bet.

Hi again, what a wonderful selection of foliage 😀
I am thoroughly enjoying all the slide shows. Although the canna is quite striking in was the Solomon’s seal that caught my eye 😀
I love your greens. Have a great weekend 😀
