The gardens at Stan Hywet mansion were extensive and simply beautiful. I took lots and lots of pictures. Some of them aren't necessarily showing the beauty of the plant, but they are to help me remember what it looks like later. Or perhaps they were something I'd particularly like when I have a garden without deer and rabbits and woodchucks, and with more discretionary income.
Today, I'll feature the color red.
This is Firewings Begonia. Begonias have so many different shapes, and many have gorgeous colored leaves. This one has long thin leaves and "hot" elongated flowers that remind me of the Angry Birds game.
Next is a sidewalk border that I really liked. The white flower is Euphorpia sp. 'Diamond Frost,' which nicely contrasts with the red "rose" double impatiens. The dark red back row is a coleus.
I suppose I should get back to blogging about stuff in my real life, but I can't think of a good reason why. The gardens of Stan Hywet have lots more lovely memories to share.
