We're having a warm, cloudy day, today.
Time to get out and take some photos of foliage,
and join Pam at Digging, for
This lettuce has given us some color all season. It's pretty tasty, too.
Another edible that we use for decoration...Kale.
Feverfew....again, just for decorations.
These have never bloomed for me. But, they held up last summer, in that awful heat.
And, as you can see...the cold doesn't seem to bother them.
The color is really good, too....really pops on a cloudy day.
Wonder if deer would leave it alone?..hmmm
On the front porch, this Japanese Holly Fern is looking good.
It likes a drink more often than some. But, it's holding up to the cold.
It's protected here, from the cold. And, the deer haven't touched it.
The deer haven't bothered the Squid Agaves, I got back in the fall.
Maybe I can take the large stones...meant to hold them down, so the deer don't pull them out...
and replace them with pebbles for a mulch.
They don't bother the Dusty Miller. They have eaten pretty much everything I've planted with it.
Sometimes, you just have to go with the flow.
This pot looks good with JUST the nice gray foliage of the Dusty Miller.
The Yucca Rostrata, in the redone Island Bed, looks good.
Rosemary is always a good foliage plant in deer country.
And, Prickly Pear....they'll eat it, if they get really hungry.
I keep some agaves covered with 'cages'. They've taken this cage off a couple times.
But, they haven't done anything to the agave.
A couple others, they've tried to pull up, after they removed the cages.
As you see, they can do a job on one. Not being mean or anything....but, I hope this hurt!
It's not dead. Since it's in the Front Bed, I'll replace it with one from somewhere else.
It should come back.
The Veggie Garden has things going on. Brussels Sprouts, Chard and Beets.
Ignore the weeds. I have. But, it's time to get out there and get them out.
They're blooming...which means seeds...which means more weeds...which...you get it.
There is more foliage here. Not much blooming.
And, there is a lot of work to be done.
Guess I better get to it.
Drop on over to Pam's and see some pretty Foliage Follow-Ups.
