I stayed indoors for my foliage shots this time, wimp that I am. The wonderful marbled leaves on red stems with red veining on the undersides came from Evan at the last plant swap. Maybe he can enlighten us as to its name.
Kalanchloe orgyalis is also known as copper spoons. It would take on a more coppery tone if it were to get direct sunlight.
Shoddy record keeping strikes agin. I do love this little guy, whatever his name.
It has taken years for this lovely lady to grow her trailing locks of Burro’s Tail Sedum. Be sure to visit Pam (Digging) to see what foliage fanciers have in store for this month’s Foliage Follow-Up.
Oh, so wise, Rickii, to feature the houseplants today. That first photo probably shows a Begonia. If you peek at Logees Rhizomatous Begonias, you will see the resemblance: http://www.logees.com/begonias/rhizomatous.html
Love your Sedum growing from the sculpture. Hope you are warm and enjoying this lovely Sunday. Best wishes, WG
Thanks for the link. Here’s the funny part: I have a cousin named Connie Boswell so this is one I will never forget.
Like that sedum. What patience!
Not known for patience, but enough other stuff going on that one day I looked around and there she was, looking just right.
Love the lady head planter. I’m so jealous of your burro’s tail sedum too, mine are kind of threadbare.
They do tend to shed after a while. I keep trimming back a sticking in new ones.
Well, I’m in the wimp department too. It’s frightful out there with all this rain. I love your photos, especially the last one. The sedum “hair” is just beyond cool!
Even when a ray of sunshine encourages a walkabout, things out there are looking pretty dull…so tablescapes and windowscapes it is.
Her sedum hair is so nicely coiffed, Ricki. Is the lovely lady called Lady Morgana, by any chance? 🙂
She came from a time when there were lots of castings of architectural details…unnamed, but we can fix that.
I think your mystery plant is a Cryptanthus, although I couldn’t tell you which one.
Thanks…I’m sure you’re right.
Love that last image!
I have my kids to thank for the lovely head planter. It took several tries to find the right plants.
I love the tiny leaves and the lady heads long hair. Stay warm!
It’s warmed up considerably…now if we can just stay dry.
Definitely like the bust with tresses of Sedum.
Seems to be the consensus in this post.
Hooray for staying indoors! Your lady is beautiful and her coiffure is splendid!
My lady thanks you.
