'Aaron' is a handsome dude

I just l-o-v-e 'Aaron' caladium. Isn't he lovely? Would you feel welcome walking up to my front door?

Here's some other pretties just for good measure.

Such ruffles!

Maybe this is a moth. He has red and blue markings and is very tiny. He was flitting all over the stamens of this flower.

Such a lovely blue. I saw today what makes this salvia (farinacea aka 'Mealy Cup Sage') so glisten-y. There is a darker color in the flowers that's basically purple and a lighter one that is medium blue. The combination just dazzles me in the sun. Like sparkling sapphires in the garden.


  1. Oh my goodness, what delights you have in your gardens. The caladiums are wonderful and I love the salvia. That ruffled daylily is fantastic too. At least I think it is a daylily.

    Have a great week ~ FlowerLady

  2. I envy you your caladiums... I wish I could grow them. That salvia is just lovely. How bid does it get?

  3. Hey Sherry...I can see why you are so happy with Aaron...he is a beauty especially surrounded by all the pretty pink and blue flowers. A very nice combo of soft colors that is very welcoming at your front entrance.

  4. Your front entrance is VERY inviting. I love Aaron. I'm going to have to be on the lookout for him, as I am always adding caladiums under my trees. Your garden is looking so pretty and flowery!

  5. Beautiful ! Caladiums and salvia. A perfect match.

  6. Ordered my first cracker rose today! I so hope it grows well for me.
