    Who needs flowers, this would be the perfect image to use for GBFD with me on the 22nd of each month.

      Thanks, Christina. What does GBFD mean? something, something Foliage Day? I will look for your post on the 22nd.

        Yes, John, Garden Bloggers Foliage Day. You can post about one plant that has great foliage or an area of the garden or lots of areas, what ever you like. I feel that a good garden is good because of its form, texture and structure and that flowers, as much as I love them are just the icing on the cake and if the cakes not good, then the icing can seem sickly to continue the metaphor. I hope you’ll join in this month.
