Red and Green

“Red and Green”, a copyrighted post, was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana 



Even with all the hustle and bustle associated with the holidays, I still found some time to go out into the garden and find some seasona color – red and green.




Pinapple sage is still blooming even after several light freezes.




A red hibiscus, while a tropical not associated with a winter holiday, has the right color scheme for Christmas.  I just may pick this one to float in a bowl and bring just a little more red and green color inside for the holiday.




Even these blueberry leaves are showing seasonal colors of red and green.  While not the traditional red and green of hollies and poinsettias, these plants are still showing holiday spirit.

    Nice to see a tropical flower blooming in temperate region that too in winter! Cool… Yours looks more softer than mine…

    Chandramouli, is yours a double? That may be the difference.

    The cold weather has unfortunately taken all my blooms! And my plants look so bedraggled it makes me sad. Hurry up spring!

    There are just a few blooms in my garden now, but they are very welcomed right now.
