Afternoon Walk…

This morning (Tuesday) on my way to work, I took an alternate route to check on the Coleus that I had my eye out for. The one in the bank window planter and guess what??!!! They totally replaced all the plants with new ones!!!! That pretty Coleus is GONE!!! :( :( :(

I was upset for two reasons. (1) I should have taken a snip of that Coleus when I had the chance. (2) They pulled that pretty Coleus before it reached it’s peak!!!

Needless to say, I decided to take a walk around our district for lunch since it was a warm day… (and subconsciously, I was hoping I would see another Coleus)

Here are some photos from my walk:

Unknown Plant   Strawberry-like Groundcover Flower Buds

Unknown Maroon Foliage   Unusual Succulent

I have more on my May 16, 2006 Flickr page. I also have a lot of unknown plants, so if you are up for an ID’ing challenge, please come by :)

And lastly, as I was walking to carpool, I saw Larry, Darryl and Darryl:

  • That’s a shame about the coleus. I thought of you the other day as I was looking through the Rosy Dawn Gardens catalog and every coleus that looked like that one was sold out. I’ll keep an eye out on the Avenue of the Arts.

    • I’ll keep exploring around here and see if I find anything… and if I do and able to grow it, we can share the benefits…
