Week 15 Dec. 23rd - Jan. 3rd


This week shall be a bowl full of carnivores. I share with you Dionaea muscipula or the Venus Fly Trap. Please enjoy this fascinating group of cold blooded killers.

Week 13 Dec. 14th - Dec. 20th


Please pass the Clematis oops I mean the pepper. Once used many years ago as a substitute for black pepper. This week is this Clematis gone to seed. In all its toxic feathery glory. By the way I do not recommend eating this as you will experience internal bleeding if consumed in large amounts. I really like this version of the climbing beauty as you rarely give it any attention after all the pretty petals are gone. I hope everyone's holiday shopping is going great! You still have 8 days left.

Week 12 Dec. 7th - Dec. 13th


This was a rare find indeed. Only in the coldest of winter days could I find this beauty in a temperature regulated greenhouse. She stuck out like a sore thumb! :) For this week I present to you Strelitzia reginae well known as The Bird of Paradise. I don't know about you but I would love to be somewhere this bird flocks naturally.

Week 11 Nov. 30th - Dec. 6th


A simple way to start a very complex month! Here she is, the Tea Rose. Hope everyone's December is fantastic!

Week 10 Nov. 23rd - Nov 29th


From one feast to another. Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!! Here is a Bombus Apidae (Bumble Bee) devouring the pollen from the Echinacea purpurea(Cone flower).

Week 9 Nov.16th - Nov. 22nd


This is named after such a tasty morsel. This Friday we have Justicia brandegeana with no butter The Shrimp Plant. Please enjoy! With such a hectic week I am sorry I am late. What with Don's new car, Saxophone lessons, New Moon opening, a teenager birthday and a heart broken seven year old that thinks her older sister gets "Everything" Oh my! Thanks ahead of time for understanding.

Week 8 Nov. 9th - Nov. 15th


This week is a rare one indeed! Here in all its baby size glory I give you Agave americana better known to most as the Century Plant. Click here for a great link to a Century Plant in bloom.
