It's neat to see these plants growing in your yard, Sandra. At the moment i still have snow. :)

All I've got to say is that I hope Bob doesn't plant any magic beans in your yard.

Best,
Bonnie

Debby@Just Breathe said...

I love your Staghorn Fern, it always amazes me. Great shot of the Asparagus Fern. Did you lay on the ground for that shot???

TexWisGirl said...

love the staghorn. :)

my sis grew an asparagus fern in her home for many years. i LOVE the foxtail and would love to have one, but i'd probably kill it.

SweetMarie said...

love your hibiscus! and all your green is pretty. :)

Ginny said...

Why asparagus? Does it have anything to do with the vegetable? The sweet little last fern almost looks like a mini pine tree! This hibiscus does not look anything like the ones here. Maybe because it is wild? Very pretty! The Staghorn is wonderfully stunning and huge! No wonder it gets so big and heavy if it is multiplying like that.

Your backyard is truly like a tropical paradise.
I love the variety and how things just multiply.
I think I need to get out in our yard too. The Wisteria is blooming and our peach tree is in full blossom. If I diddle too much longer they will be all gone.

Grandma C said...

I just started learning about ferns. Yours is very different from the ones I have seen out here.

You sure have some gorgeous and interesting plants in your yard. I always enjoy viewing them.

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

I'm watching my flowering bushes and trees for a sign of spring. I have elephant ears in the spring, summer and fall, but they die out over the winter. Do you have a down season for your plants?

CatTales said...

Glad to know about the ferns. I hope my elephant ears do well this year.

I'm late getting to comment. Kaboodle vomited all night long and I took her to the vet today. Gave her a shot and med. for the upset. Could be side effect from the new thyroid or anti seizure med. She is very quiet and still this evening and won't eat.

Hope you all have a good night.

Ann Thompson said...

Lots of pretty stuff in your back yard. My back yard has snow, mud and a little bit of ugly looking grass

The elephant ear. Sort of like people isn't it. The circle of life.
I'm pleased you like my home but we both know it needs some serious thinning out. :)

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Perhaps you would like a covering of white for your backyard garden, Sandra? Ok inalreadynknow the answer to that ridiculous query😀 but know that eventually we will see signs of spring...maybe by summer!

LC said...

I have the "other" asparagus fern. The one you pictured was a first for me.

carolann said...

Your back yard with plants, trees really amazing. When I first met up with you on your blog.

I thought you lived in Africa.

As your yard is so Africa like.

Chatty Crone said...

Does it grow asparagus? I love that veggie and is very expensive.

Just Me Pooh said...

Lovely greenery to enjoy, especially when many are weary of winter and anxiously awaiting for spring to arrive.
