The R Word and Pictures

Amazing! We got wonderful rain last night and an overcast sky today, preventing the sun from drying it all up. Remember how you hated a rainy day when you were a kid? Not anymore!

I am posting the rest of the pictures I took of some really good- looking plants in June. If I wait too long I'll probably forget how to post!

Torchlight

Thumbs Up and Clovelly

Summer Breeze

Lakeside Sparkle Plenty

Rainforest Sunrise

Heart and Soul (this one has almost doubled since beginning of June)

Goodness Gracious

Fire Island

Allegan Fog

My Husband's Favorite Huhcera

Goodness Gracious is mislabeled. Looks more like Mango Tango to me. What do you think?

Hi Paula,
That is Dark Star. It was sold to me as something else as a youngster, but as it matured it began to look just like the Dark Star in my Star Trek garden. So now I have two.

If you don't have it, I definitely recommend it. Very hardy, good grower and beautiful.

Babka and others,

Yes, it is Mango Tango. I must have been really tired when I posted these not to have noticed. Now where did I put that picture of GG......
