Don't be fooled. Inside this thin coating of sweetness is a fiery core of total insanity.

Foliage Followup -- March 2018

It's been a few months since I've posted for Foliage Followup. There hasn't been anything particularly spectacular in the way of leafy goodness happening out in my garden that I felt like celebrating.

But now there is! Lots of wonderful emerging foliage popping out of the ground, so wonderful to see!

Beesia calthifolia emerges a mahogany color and ages to green

I think this ethereal being is Jeffersonia dihpylla

Trillium still folded up

Podophyllum 'Spotty Dotty' in a pot

Eremurus has multiplied

Rheum palmatum always looks like an alien creature

Spring seems to be springing.

Pam at Digging hosts Foliage Followup, always on the day after Garden Bloggers Bloom Day. Check out her post here.


  1. Lucky you to have Eremerus multiply. Mine just croaked after one season.

  2. Wow, success with Eremerus, you are talented!

  3. Very exciting to see old friends return to the garden! Hooray for spring!

  4. I love seeing new things just emerging with their first leaves
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  5. I love all those fat, fleshy plants popping out of the ground.

  6. Several of these plants look like alien creatures to me - but that's not a bad thing!

  7. I love seeing trillium come up, no sign of mine yet so hopefully they are just a later variety


Gardening is a solitary activity. But blogging about it is a social phenomenon! I don't make money from my blog by advertising, or use it to drive customers to a business. If you liked my post, or my writing or photography, or even just one picture or turn of phrase, I'd love to hear from you. That's how I get paid.
