Planting a garden from scratch, plant by plant. Very impulse driven. Aiming for year round flowers in support of wildlife and pollinators!

The camera never quite gets this the right colour but here’s a #quirky impulse buy I bought earlier this year. I love that they break up the green in the garden and have such tactile, distinctive silver velvet leaves #silver #foliage

Last photo for today. #advice needed please. Anyone have any ideas why this particular #Senecio plant is wilting? No sign of pests, the plant is in tact, the soil is damp but not sodden but it’s like this? I have three in all, one has been munched, one is perfect but they are both very happy. Just this one which keeled over about three days ago 🤔 #help #helpneeded #helpplease #adviceplease 23-06-19

Just beautiful. I have mine in a pot but also use it to break up the green. Really effective 💚🖤

Oops! Just realised I managed to post that in your previous photo. Not sure how I did that 🤔😂 Did this one recover?

I take that back! Something has been munching my Angel Wings!

@telswirld I know! They didn’t even eat through the leaf, just a sort of layer! I can’t see any evidence of what did the munching 🤷‍♀️

So I’ve learned that today is #foliagefriday and this has to be one of my absolute faves! A picture was never going to do justice to the velvet-like leaves or the amazing silver colour but this plant is a gem! In the picture of my garden, you can see how it breaks up the green foliage and purple flowers and it’s such a happy little plant! Nicknamed ‘Angel Wings’, I bought one, planted it and promptly went back for four more 😂
