COLEUS

Cuttings and Parent Plant















No visitors this weekend and so I have used some of the spare time to finally pot up the coleus cuttings that had rooted. Coleus are such a lovely foliage plant. They have such a range of different coloured leaves. Of course in England they would not get through the winter in the garden hence the reason I try to take cuttings so that I have a few nice house plants for the winter. They do flower but, personally, I think the flowers detract from the beauty of the plant so I usually pinch them out.

Hi Ruth

I am so new in this blogging business, that I do not even know how to respond to your comments/e-mail received in personal inbox, so I am saying thank you here.

I really love your blog, even showed it to my daughter today and think you are doing a great job not only in caring for your husband, but also taking time for photos, your garden (lovely, maybe I should import you one day to come and fix mine) and also taking time for your blog.
You are doing great in spite of all the heartaches.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog and all the nice comments.

The broom in my post of today has a special meaning for me. I made it a few years ago for my mother. She is living with me now since my father passed away four months ago and I have put it on my kitchen wall as a way to make her feel at home and so naturally, it had to be featured on my blog.

Stay well and say hi to your husband

PS. Hope you will "receive" this.

Elsie
