I wanted to add some color to my patio garden so I went to my favorite nursery to pick up some inexpensive foliage. The Alcea Rosea Chaters Double Yellow immediately caught my eyes.
I hope that I can keep this plant alive – at least until the end of summer. They are inexpensive, so if it falls victim to my brown thumb, I will just pick up another. Maybe next time I will get the pink.
I am a bit more confident about my Mezoo plant – at least, I think that’s what it is. I got it yellow and pink. I have had great success with the variegated variety, so I hoping that these will be around for a long time.
The flower above is from the Purslane plant. I think it’s stunning. There are new blooms each day. This plant is edible. I am told that they are sold for $7.00 per pound at farmers markets. Mine was 99 cents.
I got them in pink and orange as well. I think I will try some in my salad tomorrow.
The next project on my to do list is a guest room mini make over. Pillows made from the images of my blooms will preserve them. So, even if they fall victim to plant killing ways, I will still be able to cherish them.
