Blue-&-Bronze Corner

Saturday, April 5, 2008

Recently started a blue-&-bronze corner on the patio. Always liked that combination anyhow, and I'd just picked up a coppery-bronzey-rose bougainvillea, a coppery-orange miniature rose, a coppery shrimp plant, and a blue flower that turned out to be a Chinese/Siberian delphinium/larkspur and that probably won't last long in this climate. Already had an amber/orange bougainvillea ("Tahitian gold?) and it joined the others, as did a dwarf sunflower. Repotted the bronzey things into blue- or green-glazed pots and the blue into plain clay pots. As the season wears on, I may add a dwarf gaillardia (red/yellow) and borage (very blue, but not usually grown for its flowers). In fall maybe chrysanthemums.

So maybe it won't last, but in the meantime I'm enjoying that corner of the patio and I have bouquets for the house.

Born in Germany, grew up in the United States (New Jersey and New York). Current household consists of 3 cats, a Samoyed dog, and, most of the time, a daughter. She's pretty cheeky but she can make the computer behave. In New Jersey days I had a horse but no daughter. Play guitar, harp, and banjo, in that order, and occasionally bowed psaltery. Interested in gardening, archaeology, travel, &c. Mean cook. Good at languages. Less ept on the banjo, but don't give up on me!
