When is a "Toad" not a "Toad" -When it's a "Toadlily".
When it's "Tricyrtis Hirta"-'Sinonome', Toad lily..I love this time of year and can't wait to see my Toad lily in action. ( Don't pay attention to un-kept growth behind it, I need to trim.) The leaves got a little crispy before this week due to drought cond. but then we got 10" of rain and brought my Toad lily to life.
This was a gift from a friends garden some 12 yrs ago. And the flowers I just love. They remind me of an Orchids flowers and fell kinda waxy. This one is white with purple blotches. And it always has 50 million flowers on it. I have only giving pieces away twice. I don't want to lose it. It's just beautiful. I would like to move it to another location because it's getting a little out of hand where it is. If you are someone who can shed some light on how and when to move this plant or even divide please leave me a message. Someone saw a photo of this on a garden site and told me mine had a virus but that isn't so. It's gorgeous! Hope you enjoy my photos of my never-ending bloomer.
And speaking of Toads. These are my Favorites. But I think they're Frogs. Don't they look all innocent looking, like they just ate something they weren't suppose to. These guys are inside porch dwellers. I don't what them to get messed up. Haven't seen these guys anywhere else. What do you think? Too cute.
Oh, one more thing. I think my special plant is going to bloom a stinky flower. I forgot the name of my succulent. If you can help let me know the name, I forgot. It's only one year old. One of my favorite inside plants......
I hoped you enjoyed reading about some of my favorite things today. Thanks for stopping by and have a marvelous FALL Day.....Tomorrow I have more projects I'm working on I want to show you so check back soon..Joyce
