Wordless Wednesday–A Closer Focus

Now that we have had snow, outdoor gardening is pretty much done for me.  So I will need to content myself with house  plants  (and it’s going to be a love/hate relationship, as it always is) for the next 7 months or so until I can get back out into the garden.

I planted this container for a lecture I had last March .  As a general rule ,  I don’t plant mixed house plant containers. They are problematic .  But this one has worked out  very well .  It went outside for the summer and survived the transition back indoors .

And I just love the pilea. It winds its way through the other plants and emerges at the top with these sweet leaf clusters.

I have been very happy with the way the colors of the leaves echo each other as well. This has been a very pleasant combination. I am surprised that it worked out so well .
