I was doing more of the perpetual garden clean-up when I noticed how nicely the sun had lit these dish planters...
They're heading into their second winter, I put them together in October of last year.
Each contains Sedum spathulifolium 'Carnea', Calluna vulgaris 'Stockholm', and Hebe ochracea 'James Stirling'... they've held up well.
The fern dish planter is looking good too.
The bright green new growth of the Dryopteris sieboldii is welcome in these darker days.
And the pattern of the Asarum maximum 'Ling Ling' stands out nicely too.
Pyrrosia sheareri is always a fav.
And ditto for the Pyrrosia polydactyla
Since I don't spend much time on the patio in the winter, I moved the bowl and it's base over to a spot in the upper garden where I can see it more easily.
Right over there...(where?)...
I wrote about these fern dishes recently so I almost didn't include them in this write-up, but what the heck...
My worries about the Cyclamen hederifolium foliage facing every which direction were unfounded, all the leaves have properly oriented themselves facing up.
And a few of the stems are doing one of my favorite things that cyclemen do, that twisty business.
This Asplenium trichomanes has me thinking I need to work a few more into the garden. It's so cute!
Enough time has passed that I've stopped morning the loss of the bromeliads every time I walk by this part of the garden. They'll be back next year, and until then...I get to enjoy them in the basement.
