Leucanthemum hosmariense 'Spring Silver'
If you are here for Wordless Wednesday please scroll down to the next post and thanks for visiting.
This plant was a mystery to me until I looked it up after taking this picture. I had trouble finding an L picture. We are right in between the seasons here. It is no longer winter but it really hasn’t been very spring-like either. We are just starting to get some flowers. This plant is an annual for this area of Connecticut, actually most of the US. It blooms much earlier than its hardy cousin the Shasta Daisy, which is a perennial.
Here is another L picture. It is the bark of a Crepe Myrtle (Lagerstroemia fauriei 'Townhouse'). This one doesn’t grow in Connecticut either, well maybe extreme southern areas along Long Island Sound. A plant like this can add a lot of winter interest to the garden. This was taken in the Bronx, New York.
Just a note that work is becoming a little crazy right now, which is a good thing. I will try and visit everyone for ABC but I am not sure how many I get too. I am also not publishing my ABC Blogroll this week since so many of the blogs have stopped posting ABC posts. If you want to see who is posting in this weeks ABC Wednesday see Mrs. Nesbitt’s Comment section.
