Flashback Friday

Today, we go WAY BACK to 2009 this week.  It was a yard post.  I had built a frame on one side of the front steps a few years before, and added one on the other side.  I planted Caladiums since it was very shaded.  THey were impressive.

Well, I had found an online place that offerred 100 bulbs for like $20...  It was a risk going cheap, but it worked out great!
The other bed was all hostas.  They were great for several years until the local deer discovered them.  I had to move most to the fenced in backyard.  The deer don't jump the fence.

And of course there were The Mews eating together.  A too-brief time with 3 womancats...



  1. Pawsome flashback!
    Mum liked the Caladiums.
    She likes cool foliage plants.
    WE like the flashback picture of the cats too.

  2. Good memories, hosta always a favorite, so missed them all the years of living in the south.

  3. Those were good flashbacks, really!

  4. That is a nice flashback. XO

  5. Foliage plants like those can for sure brighten up a shady dull area...I have to get rid of a bunch of bee balm that is in a too shady area, so it constantly gets 'powdery mildew'...

    Nice flashbacks!

  6. Those caladiums look fabulous.

  7. That is a lovely flashback of the three ladies and the plants. The caladiums look very similar to the coleus we have here.


We're always glad to hear from our friends...
