Hello Folks ~ Here it is Friday already. This week has zipped by fast. My going to visit, feed, letting Bella and Max out three times a day, plus my own life, is keeping me busy. My quiet little life has been altered for this period of time. I will enjoy getting back to my needlework projects after this is done.
I took some pictures of the beauty surrounding this home.
This is a ponytail palm,
with a staghorn fern attached and growing at the center.
Looking from another angle.
Here is a smaller one.
(I have a real small one in a pot, but after seeing these two, I’m inspired to plant mine in the ground.)
Bella and Max also in the picture.
I love this chair, one of a pair. The little potted tree behind it is a Norfolk Pine.
This is a Royal Poinciana, with a close-up of one of the pretty blooms.
This is a neat head with a lovely patina.
This is Mock Orange, or Orange Jessamine, Murraya paniculata.
I have this growing here too. The scent is wonderful.
This is a lovely, thick arch of greenery and flowering shrubs.
The Lady of the house loves orchids and has them hanging in several of the trees and from the wall in the area beside their patio. This plant is massive. I can only imagine what it must look like when it is loaded with blooms. Orchids are hidden everywhere.
There was this one spray on the other side of the tree.
This is a great piece of artwork, made by an artist that the husband and wife whose garden this is, and myself and my DH both knew. I have a different piece in my gardens. In fact, I have two different ones, I just remembered a smaller one of a horse.
This is a beautiful bougainvillea at the corner of their patio area.
A gardenia picked from their huge shrub.
Hope you’ve enjoyed these lovely bits from this garden. Being here inspires me to work more in my own gardens. It gives me a different perspective and way of looking at things.
It’s hot and humid here, but not as bad as it is in TX and other places. We’ve had some rain, not as much as was predicted though. I mowed yesterday.
Stopped by a new little off the wall plant nursery the other day which I’ll tell about in another post.
Have a nice weekend wherever in the world you are, and count your blessings.
