The Garden (Green)


*~* I just can’t post today without acknowledging that this blog passed 100 followers last night. I am in awe of the support and encouragement I have received from my fellow bloggers in the barely 6 weeks I have written for this blog. I am learning so much from so many of you. Thank you for seeing something in my words, photographs that made you want to see more. I am simply inspired. *~*

I am partial to the color green. There are hundreds of shades and I don’t know of one I don’t like.

Here are a few shades of green I found in my mother-in-laws potted garden.


A budding nasturtium, not quite ready to release.


Dainty succulents, aside from those razor-sharp points and spikes that is.


I have no idea what type of plant, flower, bud, this is. Wild.



Again, not sure what this leaf is a part of but, I loved the texture with the light coming through. From what I know of her garden, my mother-in-law isn’t growing any types of leafy greens.


And finally, a mini-succulent forest.

Feel free to leave a comment offering your botany knowledge. I am all for learning the names and history of my subjects.

Remember if you can’t get enough of my mother-in-law’s potted flower garden, don’t worry. Click HERE to find Red, Orange and Yellow flowers including some poems inspired by all the beauty.


  1. Wow, what a milestone you’ve reached in blogland. Congratulations. As my Aunt Beulah used to say, “Cream rises.” Your green photograph of your mother-in-laws garden are amazing. I so enjoyed them.

    1. Thank you! It is quite a milestone. I wasn’t expecting such a warm welcome. I am so happy to know you enjoyed these images. I love your posts! I look forward to reading them.
      I really had so much fun looking through her garden for these images. Purple coming next week 🙂
