    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.

    Hi again, what a wonderful selection of foliage πŸ˜€

    I am thoroughly enjoying all the slide shows. Although the canna is quite striking in was the Solomon’s seal that caught my eye πŸ˜€

    I love your greens. Have a great weekend πŸ˜€
