    This is scenery from when we were living in Reading, PA:







    Could be darker, I suppose.

    I'm really good at growing dark plants. Brown and crispy.

    JLAP- The cannas you have look like Wyoming(Orange Flower) or maybe Futurity Rose(Red Flower). I like the tropical look cannas bring to yards. A friend gave me some divisions of Ajuga reptans last season. I don't mind if the bugleweed takes over. I'd still rather have that than dandilions or crabgrass. I think my same friend has that basil in her yard, so I'll get some from her. We live down the street from each other and share a lot of plants. I actually set her up with a mini bog of cp's I planted last year.

    Finch- The black garden and dark plants aren't the only thing I grow. I keep cp's, african violets, orchids, cacti/succulents, bonsai, tropicals, hostas, and everything in between.

    Here's a pic of another part of the garden.(Sorry about the blurriness)



    MrFlyTrap2- Funny you should mention the Corylus. I have a small Corylus avellana 'Contorta' I planted last spring. It's hard to see, but it's in the center of the circle in this picture.

    Presents are the best way to show someone how much you care. It is like this tangible thing that you can point to and say 'Hey man, I love you this many dollars worth. -Michael Scott, The Office
