Plants in the Mail

Here's a free image for you to use.. it was for cigarettes but got rid of the script and now just a pretty patriotic gal with a broom! Have fun..

Was a Sunny day and loving those wonderful grasses, 'Firecracker and Fiber Optic' the names really fit these plants.'

Well such a wimp ,needed a umbrella for rain the past week and now to hide from the bright sun!
But sure makes the garden grow!

With sunshine the solar fountains are doing their job.. had butterflies but no birds..and the sound wonderful..

Today received a nice package while I was arranging pots on the deck ..Last week I had a bug to get a Night scented Jasmine so looked online and found a wonderful site from Florida 'Gardino Rareflora Nursery'.. please take a peep they have some really neat plants! and was intrigued by all their variety and the huge list of Hoya plants! Had a Hoya plant years ago but never bloomed and grew slow..but after seeing the wonderful pictures of the blooms ,well had to try again... Extremely happy with the healthy and robust pots I received and packed up so nicely.. wrapped in paper cones and paper shreds on the top of soil to keep them tidy.Thank you Gardino will give them a good home!

While I did alittle research on these plants was amazed about the intense interest some people have for these Hoya plants, the flowers look like wax stars and some smell like chocolate , or sweet and even a couple are suppose to smell like peanut butter!
