Really Red....


One of the small hibiscus flowers fell and placed itself perfectly on the elephant ear like it  belonged there.



All the moss roses are waving there sweet little faces at me daily.... Snap! Snap! I can't help myself.

NOTE: If you would like a pot like the smaller one below, they do sell them in Wal-Mart in the dairy department...


To be continued..... Moss Rose Down!

Quem sabe se a queda do hibisco em cima da outra planta vai provocar uma nova espécie?
Excelentes registos com boa definição.

Love moss roses - they're so sweet! And of course that first photo is great. Good thing you explained or I would have thought it was placed there for the photo. :-)

And thank you on the tip re. that great dairy department planter!!! lol

Ha! Love your Country Crock remark. :) The moss roses are just begging to be photographed, aren't they?

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Pretty flowers. LOL at your fancy crock! We have some moss roses blooming, I just love them. Have a great weekend.

Are you sure you didn't place that hibiscus flower on the leaves? The pictures of it there are beautiful.

Love your "pot" from Wal-Mart!!!

That was the way most of my MIL's plants were featured. (:0)
She had such a green thumb and was always starting new plants.

Love the capture of the hibiscus and the elephant ear leaf. It sure looks like it belongs.

Thanks for your fun comments on my posts. They are so appreciated.

I think it's neat that you even knew what kind of car your Grandma had.

My relatives all lived on the East Coast and those kind of details were never part of their story.

We are actually going to a small family reunion for some of my husbands side of the family tomorrow. I'm really looking forward to just visiting and catching up on life.

Have a wonderful weekend.

I am SO glad to see you back!!! You are always one daily constant in the universe that I can count on, and that is comforting in a way. Like...if Sandra is posting today, all has to be right with the world(at least my little world. You fooled me BIG TIME!! I thought you had a renegade elephant ear that had bloomed,really I did!

Terri said...

Moss roses are such fun to grow..I can't hardly kill them. LOL! And now I must rush off to Wally World before those cool pots are gone!

Interesting as usual. I like you caught that little flower on the leaf - it did look like it belonged there. Pretty as usual. Sandie

Michaele said...

Ann said...

Ok you've got me chuckling over the dairy department flower pot...lol
That hibiscus flower did fall perfectly.

Maple Lane said...

Very pretty. Hope you continue to feel better. Take it easy this weekend.

Rose said...

I would prefer a Folger's coffee can pot, myself. I use them for everything else, so why not as a planter?'

Love those elephant ears and the hibiscus.

SquirrelQueen said...

I do believe the elephant ear wanted a pretty earring. That's a beauty!

I'll have to grab a couple of those pots next time I'm at WM, LOL! Actually I love the Maxwell House ones with the handles.
