One thing that is not appreciated enough is the way the light glows in the sweeping arms of phoenix canariensis. (subliminal messages danger? I can see some christmas bulbs hanging from there)
Or how the neighbours clematis has found its home in my bananas. It's so jungle like - I love it!
I certainly don't give enough appreciation to this epic rosemary. When I say epic, I mean it. It has the most glorious scent and taste. When meyer lemon season arrives, this little plant will be "pruned" almost to the ground in the preparations of rosemary meyer lemon lemonade! mmmm!
not to mention its a handsome plant.
I don't often get outside in the high sunshine enough to catch the light filtering through this beautiful grass.
Another plant that deserves more garden respect is this blue cedar.
Even the weed otherwise known as the tree of heaven behind it. There is something wonderful about the way it catches the sunlight in the afternoon.
I love bamboozelment, but quite often I don't venture out to this part of the garden to appreciate its graceful presence.
The tropical looking foliage of an acuba is another example of things that are not appreciated enough. It looks more like one of those fussy house plants that are doomed to die under my care.
And while angels trumpet flowers seem to take the show, their luscious foliage is worthy of respect.
Some beloved plants like agave cornelius are loved for their variegation but the graceful curves are what give it drama!
And then theres the chubby arms of aloe polyphylla. Often appreciated for its mesmerizing spiral, I often forget how beautiful the undersides of its arms are.
There's some much in the garden to be appreciated.
What about you... what goes unappreciated in your garden? Is it a plant? Is it the way the light filters through at just the right time of day? A scent? Please share.
