Surreal Nature

When I asked Mr Wonderful to move cramped azaleas for me, he, being inspired by the magic that happens on the DIY channel, jumped right on it. It has been reduced in size. Luckily, the next day a big rain settled it in the ground.

Every wild thing is attracted and feasting on bountiful dogwood drupes.


While everything is changing colors, this rudbeckia seems incredibly green.



Perilla frutescens/Beefsteak Plant looks like wild coleus.

    Enjoyed your music choice.

    We’ve had an abundance of rain this year so the foliage on most of my plants looks unusually good this year too.

    Thanks, AB.

    Yes, mine doesn’t have really toothed foliage either.

    Hi Donna, that first picture is really cool. What fun to play with digital pictures. I will have to look at my Perilla more closely…mine are darker purple, but I don’t think the stems are so red. Interesting.

    The leaves look so lush with rain on them. everything in my garden is very dry at present and the only rain we have is just a few spits and the ground remains dust.

    The more you look the more you see.

    My plants should have rollers on them. A lot of them do.

    Kudos to Mr. Wonderful. And even more to Mother Nature for bringing the big rain to settle your azaleas in. I’ve been moving stuff too and I tell you we could use some more rains.

    Donna, I love the first picture especially. It goes well with Vladimir Kush’ metaphorical realism. The video is amazing, thank you so much!!!

    …and Kush is so strangely beautiful.

    The video is stunning! Love Sarah Brightman. Looks like things are still doing well in Mother Nature’s Garden. 🙂 That dogwood is handsome!
