I’ve blogged before about a crazy haunted house with a brick planter full of Dracunculus vulgaris out front. Someone seems to have thinned them out a bit since my last visit, all the better to appreciate the colorful seeds. My friend Erin bought one of these plants at the HPSO sale over the weekend (yes I bought a couple of things too...more on that tomorrow) and a helpful fellow shopper told her she could very easily propagate more plants by planting the seeds from the pod in the fall. Have any of you had success with them?
I love these luscious large Datura blossoms. CORRECTION....make that Brugmansia (thanks for catching that one ricki!)
I missed them in the garden this year. Next year I'll be investing in a good size plant early in the season.
I did start Amaranth seeds this spring. Mine never amounted to anything. Seeing these makes me want to give it a go again next year.
Somewhere under the Ivy is the rest of this house. Yikes.
Verbascum seedlings taking hold between the street and the curb. Free apples! Oh wait...no only 'apple,' does that mean you can only take one?
Lastly I tried to get a picture of this grass that would show you the beautiful shimmering patterns that I see every evening. I failed to capture the true beauty.
