Wednesday

Look how pretty and large they are....



 The storms come and go here in So Florida but my Caladium 
plants in the front yard are looking quite nice and are as happy as can be.
I love the look of the leaves and the wonderful red/burgundy color they have produced.
I guess they like soggy soil and lots of shade under the old Oak tree.

I'll be linking this post to

They are beautiful. Add some closeups of them. I miss them as they don't grow in Holland. They always made my Texas summers seem cool. xo Jenny

your Caladiums are so pretty.
Now that people are starting to get some rain, including us...things are starting to 'green up'!

I'm thinking before next year, a fence in the front is in order!
Yes! to keep those chickens out of the pretties!

I've always loved the intense coloring on caladiums! Never been able to grow them, though!

You seem to have quite a green thumb!

Thank you for sharing it with us.
