Lots of them in the yard now. It’s really spring.
I wish I could say this was at my house, but it’s not. We took a whirlwind tour of the south recently. We stopped at Middleton Plantation in South Carolina and saws this lovely pansy and hyacinth display.
My fellow gardener gave me some elephant ear bulbs this year and I brought them in this fall. They were spectacular in the summer, with huge leaves (looking very much like their namesake). Once they were potted and in the cellar they started to look dead. But miraculously once the dead leaves were removed, there was new growth! It was tightly rolled like a scroll of paper. I’m looking forward to seeing those leaves this winter. To find out more about this amazing foliage plant: http://bit.ly/17EPPWn
This year, with a late frost, it’s been an explosive fall for dahlias. What a display.
No idea what these are but the foliage looks like a lily pad.
