Purples and pinks

Postby Pam » Mon Jun 12, 2006 6:57 pm

I've waited for about as long as I can get away with for non-existent azalea flowers to appear, but it's not going to happen (at least not in the next few hours :lol: ), so as requested, I'm posting this pic here.

Purple fountain grass, contrasted against Salvia coral nymph at the front, and the architectural-looking stems of Golden cane palm to the rear. I got the landlord's approval to remove the palm recently, but now that we are moving, I'm glad I hadn't gotten around to it - it would have been a heck of a hole to have to fill in in a short time! :lol:

The ....uh ...... 'silver' foliage off to the right of the pic is a new, rare form of azalea - grown chiefly for it's coloured leaves :^o :lol:
