    Wow...beautiful purps Dyflam. They do look just like they are growing in the wild. Niiiiiiiiiiice!

    Pretty flowers too. What are they?

    BTW...do you have any photos of your whole bog garden? Is it a ground bog or container bog?

    The flowers are milkweed... monarch butterflies lay their eggs on them.

    The bog garden is a container garden. It's a fairly small Rubbermaid container.

    Very nice. Makes me wish I had some private outdoor space for a bog garden.

    Don't want to hijack the thread but.....Dimka, I like your avatar. Let me guess, it's a spider mite climbing up a plant stem!

    Lol, why thank you Chloroplast. However, I'm afraid i must disapoint you. It is a game character named Ferazel (game is Ferazel'd Wand) which i find very very nice, and well he is just my favorite "fictional" character So my avatar is my contribution to him... if that makes any sence
    Hey, you guys said yourselves this place was full of freaks
