Orchids are Strange Puppies...
Every year around this time I get real antsy for color, so florrie and I decided to collaborate on a colorful post, and nothing spells color better than orchids which incidentally bloom around this time of year. I even got a camera from the Jews for this purpose alone, with the help from Aridog and florrie. The camera and I have been having a rough period of adjusting to each other, so I apologize for the quality of pictures. Aridog says it's because I don't read the instructions, but who has time for that? Maybe when I retire. The reference to the Jews was an obligatory (but true!) touch, because no post on bloggie is authentic without it. Now that that's out of the way, we can proceed.

The Plants Are In The Mail Saturday Morning Quiz
Oh my, just look at that. The only cabalist on bloggie right now...hmmm hmm hmm, and above the fold, no less...

Well, that can't last for long, especially when DLers see that this is another plant post...

Guess I should have tricked people and titled this post "Saturday Morning Quiz". Yeah, that's the ticket...

Bleeding Heart
The genus Dicentra, from the Greek dis, "twice," and centron, "spur," meaning "twice-spurred," in reference to the flower shape, is a wonderful plant for shade gardens.

Beautiful Bellflowers
The previous owner of our first house had planted an old-fashioned English garden many years ago. One of my favorite flowers in it was the Canterbury Bells; so began my love affair with campanulas.

The Garden in Winter
Along with conifers, there are many evergreen trees, shrubs and perennials that grace the winter tapestry of our gardens with their striking foliage.

My last post about winter color focused solely on hellebores. I will try to squeeze the rest of the flowering shrubs and trees into one post.

The Garden in Winter
For a long time I didn't realize that there were many beautiful plants I could add to my garden for interest in the winter. Although I find the starkness of bare trees against a snowy background to be a wonderful sight, I knew I couldn't replicate that in the space I had. Then I found a wonderful little book by noted nurseryman Daniel Hinkley, Winter Ornamentals; I would highly recommend it to anyone in the Northwest or zones 7 and below.

New Zealand Hebes
Another wonderful plant is the hebe, {hee'-bee}, named after the Greek goddess of youth.

There are about 100 species of these evergreen shrubs in the figwort or foxglove family, most native to New Zealand. They prefer full sun and will tolerate a wide range of soil conditions.

Fm[1].gif~A celebration of the Rose~
"What's in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other word would smell as sweet."


I the roses love in the gardens of Adonis,
Lydia, I love those fast fleeting roses
That on the day they were born,
On the same day they die.
Light for them is everlasting: born
After the sun comes up, they die
Before Apollo rounds
His visible track.
So let us make our life a single day,
And willingly ignore the night to come,
The night already past,
The little while we last.



My Victorian drawing room would have this lamp shade in a cozy corner...
roselamp1[1].jpg

and this intricate beaded rose purse left carelessly on a tabourette.
sage[1].JPG

According to fossil evidence, the rose is 35 million years old! Roses are symbols of love, war, beauty and politics. In ancient Rome they were used for medicinal purposes, as confetti and perfume.

Goodbye country garden...
As I dug up plants to pot and move with us, I regretted taking so few pictures of my garden the last few years. A few weeks later we were at Costco and picked up some film Tom had dropped off; I remember he seemed particularly anxious to get it back. So I was pretty surprised when we got home and he handed the envelope to me - inside I found the entire roll was devoted to the garden!
I'm so glad he did this for me - now I'll never forget how pretty the garden here at Creature's Comfort was...
Just scroll over the pictures to get the descriptions.

New Zealand Phormiums
longwhitecloud is so lucky to live in temperate New Zealand, and can boast of such native beauties as phormiums and hebes!
Phormiums, also known as New Zealand flax, are tough and bold plants that have made a huge impact in gardens throughout the world. Their name is derived from the Greek word for mat. Some phormiums come through our NW winters intact, others don't - so it is wise to choose and site them with care. Here is a newly planted phormium display in Devon, England, planted September 1999...phbedsm[3].JPG
one year later...bed0900s[1].JPG
and in December 2002!b28s1202[1].jpg
These versatile perennials add great texture and tropical appeal to a garden in a "supporting" role as backdrop to lesser plants, while at the same time having enough stature to stand alone.
Here are the three cultivars in my garden.
Phormium tenax, which can reach 12 feet,phormium[1].jpg
P. cookianum 'Flamingo', 19PhormPinkFlamingo[1].jpg
and P. colensoi 'Jack Sprat', the smallest flax at 1 1/2'. flax[1].jpg
