These are the stories of a gardener and her adventures in and sometimes out of her eclectic and eccentric garden in a suburb of Houston, Texas.
Cool! What's the botanical name for that plant?
Those blooms are the height of fashion, the Pantone color of year. It's such a rare color in gardens, but I love it.
And it's perfect for you...your signature color!
Oh, I've been wanting a bottle tree, and there you went and put my favorite color on yours! Where on earth did you find turquoise bottles? I want them!
Carol, I believe this to be Bottlinia vinoensis subsp. Rieslingiana.MMD, I first saw these bottles a couple of years ago and knew immediately that I'd collect them for a bottle tree. Leslie, I know! I'm not sure I'd have done one otherwise.GG, I didn't know that was your favorite color too! Look for Sun Garden Riesling. I know some of our HEB stores carried it for a bit. I first saw it at a little wine shop in Houston. I still need one more bottle for the top. I believe I'll go looking for one! Although I ought to check w/friends cuz I'd bought a case of wine & sold it to several folks at a discount with the caveat that they return the bottles to me!
This is lovely...I will definitely attmpt this. www.belleaq.typepad.com
So much for the old Dylan lyric: "When the bottle gets empty, It sure ain't worth a damn".We import Sun Garden Riesling and are thrilled to see it's remains put to such cool use. Thanks!Cheers,Tim HallettScoperta Importingwww.scopertaimports.com
