Brighter Than The SkyTuesday, November 15, 2011
There wasn't much progress in my garden as of last week. The weather was as usual, cloudy most of the time with occasional clear skies.
My African Daisy-Gerbera is always placed infront as it is a low growing plant. Together with other plants with similar height like the Ground Orchid (in the pic below) they cover the sight of pots that have vines and taller shrubs growing in them.
The Ornamental Sweet Potato Vines meanwhile are quick to fill up gaps here and there. More than that, these two vines with red coloured leaves are making the garden a little more interesting with their unique colour and leaf shapes.
The heart-shaped leaves of the Sweet Potato Vine below will sometimes change to another form. Also I find that it grows slower than the rest of the ornamental Sweet Potato Vines with other colours. But red is nevertheless the most attractive of them all... maybe because it is the newest colour ;-)
My eggplant is progressing well inspite of the rainy weather... yay! :-D
And this week I will most probably need to prune the Coleuses that I have planted in the container below - getting overgrown! I will definitely miss the dashes of pink on the hybrid Coleus as when the weather gets hotter and sunnier, this colour will disappear.
Here is a new addition... Variegated Pink Serissa. It replaced my old Vinca Periwinkle that was white and pink also.
Hope there is plenty of sunshine in your garden!
