A Garden Party

17 Nov

Another frog

This frog was just one of the charming, whimsical features in a magical garden.   The many succulents were delightful and appealing — particularly in this time of year.  It’s almost like having flowers in the late fall.  (Although there were many delightful flowers as well and you’ll see some of those later this week.)

And, as we were leaving, we noticed another friendly frog bidding us good day.

    Wow. What incredible Hens and Chicks. The variegated is wonderful but the wine colored one and the lemon sherbet one with raspberry edges. Yowzer.

    I never knew hen and chicks came in so many varieties! I like the one growing in the cone pot. I have one of those pots. Think I’ll try that next year.

    Oooh… BEAUTIFUL!

    That’s it, I’m packing my bags and coming to live in your garden. Please tell me you don’t have any Rhododendrons growing… PLEASE 😀

    Laugh. Wende, I *wish* that were my garden. It was the garden that I visited on saturday and took about a billion pictures in. Not my garden, though. Maybe someday.
