Garden Blogger’s Foliage Day – September 2011
There is Christina from her Garden of the Hesperides inaugurating this foliage meme, I like the way she explains how foliage is one of the most lasting presence in our gardens, surely more than flowers, and as creating nice textures and forms mixes is one of my priority too I join happily this meme of hers.
Foliage in the garden could add structure, like shaped shrubs of boxes for example
Useless to say, when I think of foliage my mind suddenly goes for grasses. I love the way they can catch light and add movement to the garden…
We had mist last night and the drops left over smooth leaves made them glistening to the sun.
Ok I’d like to end this post with pennisetum ‘Magic’, I told him about your appreciations about him, so it kind of bowed to say you ‘thank you’. Obviously the image has been taken on stage at the end of its last concert (it’s in tournèe now).
And please meet pennisetum ‘Magic’ progeny:
