Nothing Looks Good...

...except the Coleus. Nothing fancy or avant garde  about these guys, but great pleasure is taken every spring in seeking out new specimens , and potting up the cuttings that have struggled and prevailed in their inhospitable winter digs -a glass of seldom changed tap water in a sporadically heated house. Pots are staged in partial shade locations around the garden . I pout concerning my limited site choices-friends in climates that have humidity and rain during summer seem to be able to put them anywhere. I do, however, get to put them out earlier and bring them in later. Trade-offs.

  1. The Coleus do look good...and so do the Manihot I spy in the upper left hand corner of the first picture!
