So of course I have to lead with shamrocks.
But let’s not stop there. I loved the way the raindrops sparkled on this unknown Verbascum.
And the play of textures that happen stepping back a ways.
Do visit Pam (Digging) to see her focus on foliage. I’ll be back with more on the 22nd, when Christina steps up with her foliage from another continent.
Verbascum! Love it all, Rickii – happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Such fun to see you yesterday. Laurie was a little overwhelmed. We’ll be back on a warmer day to SHOP. Thanks for your help.
Oh that Verbascum!
I know…ain’t it grand?
Surely, there’s a 4-leafed clover in there somewhere. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Hoping the “luck o the Irish” holds.
I like the fuzzy silver leaves of the Verbascum. Is it a volunteer or did you plant it?
Totally uninvited party crasher…but welcome.
Lovely soft colors without the harsh light of summer. Soothing!
Hoping for a little not-so-harsh spring light.
Your Verbascum is really silver leaved; I must remember to look for some different cultivars; my slope just has the natives that were blown in by the wind but their foliage is more sage green than silver.
These are all volunteers too. It’s fun to see where they turn up each year.
A lovely foliage post! It’s amazing the variety of forms, surfaces, and colors of foliage.
I know! If there were no flowers, we would still be rich…just a little less so.
