No Lonely Little Petunias

I wish we could have taken home one of everything from the garden center on Saturday. But space, cyclonic winds, bugs, sea spray, and budget won’t allow it. So, here’s a sampling of some of the beautiful things we left behind.

Our plants were delivered this afternoon. San Geraldo has his work cut out for him. I’ll share pictures of the terrace once he’s done.

MEDINILLA MAGNIFICA (PHILIPPINE ORCHID) ABOUT TO BLOOM.
SO LOVED BY KING BOUDEWIJN OF BELGIUM (REIGNED 1951–1993)
THAT IT APPEARED ON THE 10,000 FRANC NOTE.

MOOSE WOULD ENJOY PLUCKING THE FLOWERS.
WE’D LOVE HIM… WE’D LOVE HIM NOT… WE’D LOVE HIM!
SO SUCCULENT.
SURPRISING COLORS.
VIVID…
A PASSION FLOWER — NOT THE CLEMATIS JUDY “WEEDED.”
