It's Bloomin' Tuesday!


Today I'm going green! We have had about 38 inches of snow according to the radio, although I didn't have quite that much, so I would love to see green!

I like plants that not only add beautiful blooms but also look good when not in bloom. Here are some of my favorites.

Brunnera, Jack Frost.

Hens and chicks

Lady's mantle

Variegated Solomon's Seal

Ornamental Grass

Coral Bells


Chameleon Plant
I also have lots of plants with burgundy foliage. We welcome anyone that has gardening pictures or house plants of any kind to join the fun. If you would like to sign up just add your name and permalink to Mr Linky and add a link to this post on your blog. (I'm hoping Mr Linky is working this week!) Thanks for stopping by!

Your pictures of green plants are so pretty. Oh my, 38 inches of snow. So far we have only had a few flurries, but I'm sure we will see more. Can't have a Minnesota winter without snow!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Hi Jean, No blooms here, and thankfully no snow.
Great pictures.
Happy thanks giving.

38 inches is a lot of snow--or is compared to our zero!
The colors and textures of the various leaves is visually appealing. I especially like the Brunnera 'Jack Frost'. Is it a houseplant?

That is beaufiful foliage you have there. Thanks for hosting one of my favorite memes.

Love your Brunnera, Jack Frost, it really looks frosted:), I'm a leaf person, and I love the different varieties you shared today! How do you keep the chameleon plant from taking over:)

You really had a lot of snow! A storm is supposed to blow in tonight but I don't think we will have 38 inches worth :-) Lots of nice green leaf photos today on Bloomin' Tuesday. I hope you are still doing BT come Spring when my flowers return :-)

Hi Jean,
Thanks for your comment on my squirrel post. I came across it when I was looking for the url to give someone who had also posted squirrel pics. I had forgotten you invited me to participate in this. Oh, and I had put some fresh spinach in that soup I told you about. If you haven't been back to my blog, I have a 3 part "series" on kale, which ended in me making soup with it.

I love your pics. You have a great talent there. I like the way you got so close and framed the plants.

I didn't realize I was going to take up two spaces when I added the name of my blog to your list. Do you want me to change it?
