One of my greatest joys this summer has been watching the way my young Leccino Olive glows. It has brought me out to a part of the yard that I don't usually visit in the evening - obviously not enough. I think that is important. To have things that draw you deeper into the yard that is. To feel compelled to journey through your space.
As I have journeyed through the last through months I have waited for my mimosa silk tree to fill in. With the cold June I thought it might never come when I'd see this tree alive and growing.
But with all the warmth we have experienced over the last weeks it appears everything has caught up.
This palm has not just exploded ... it has gone gang busters!!!
I don't really know what this is. It appears wild, it has beautiful foliage and does not appear to be all that invasive so I have let it do its thing.
The musa basjoo clump is really starting to put on some size. It never ceases to amaze me just how fast these things can grow come this time of year.
Like I said, I wait all year for this.
And schefflera (Hoi?) seems to be growing nicely.
This little sedum palmeri is a new addition as well and an instant favourite in my books.
And lets not forget fatsia. I think I feature this guy in almost every single foliage follow-up. And why not!? These are seriously under appreciate in my books.
Here's to savouring the sights, the sounds, the warmth and of course beautiful foliage under the summer sun!! Happy July foliage follow-up everybody! Visit Pam's blog Digging for more of the fantabulous July foliage follow-up!
