Blooming Friday/Wish List

It’s time for Blooming Friday and today’s theme is Wish List. When I first started blogging, I wanted to add more fragrant blooms in my collection. But now that I have them mostly in the form of small shrubs, I’d like to add more  foliage plants in my garden. Like the ones here. This photo was taken at the Summit Guest House in Shillong where the garden is not only filled with different colourful blooms of the season but the mix of foliage plants is most interesting. Most of the ferns (and orchids) are grown in containers that are made out of the trunks of fallen trees. Below is a combination of asparagus fern and succulents. The grass-like foliage is of the Ponytail palm/Nolina recurvata.

    Hello Kanak, did I tell you that your header is stunning? It is just stunning, I am in love with the calistemon at the moment. I am starting another project so I will be busy for the next week or two. Have great weekend!

    That aspargus fern look a bit like something I had inside in pots for many years. I’d totally forgotten it, a very decorative plant. The foliage is as important as the flowers, it adds a new dimention to the garden 🙂

    Containers made of fallen tree trunks! That’s an interesting use for tree trunks. I see a lot of stumps used as table legs or as sitting arrangements. But I’ve never seen them being used as containers.
