Coleus ‘Copper Splash’

Copper Splash

This is one of my Coleus from last year (2005). This was a tall Coleus that tried to bloom as much as it could.

I took cuttings of this to overwinter and it survived at work, but the main stem recently started to die and all I was left with were the small tips.

I cut the remaining tips off and those are now in ICU at home under growlights. They look like they may make it.

I just noticed that this photo was taken last year on Thanksgiving. It’s colors are very autumn-esque.

These are the bird featured in the film “The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill“. Here’s a link to rent it from Netflix.

After their tiff, they fell off, but were able to fly away without hitting the pavement (or cars).

Garden Status

I spent yesterday (Saturday) doing a little bit of cleanup on my three vegetable beds in the backyard.
