Painting My GardenWednesday, March 10, 2010
Cosmos Bright Eyes has brought a complete hue of orange that ranges from yellow to tangerine to my garden. This plant that started from seed took only about two months to flower. Now, I have orange flowers on both sides of my compound.
These Cosmos together with Chinese Hatplant are at one side. The plants that have same hues on the other side are Mexican Sunflower, Chalice Vine and Hibiscus. Although all these plants are still not in full bloom, in time to come, I am sure they are really going to add lots of cheer to my garden.
Plumbago, with white flowers, is one of my recent addition to complete my white and purple corner. I placed this young Plumbago next to the Sandpaper Vine and Gomphrena that bears purple, white and lilac flowers.
And the other neighbour of this wonderful Plumbago is my blueish-purple Hibiscus. Actually, I am not sure if this Hibiscus is a blue one or a purple one (could you?) but to me, it is more of purple than blue. This corner of purple and white is special as it reminds me of my wedding day colours :-)
Have fun painting your garden with flowers!
