Exotics ...............

Technically, these might not all fall under the term exotic but, using meaning 3. strikingly, excitingly, or mysteriously different or unusual, they come pretty close.

Doesn't it look like someone took a paintbrush and colored this one?

A few years back I disliked bromeliads, didn't want any of them. Funny how plants can "grow" on you.

I chased three different types of butterflies around the yard but they were all so flutteringly busy that I couldn't get any good picture. I brought this one up from an old album.

Can someone say, big!

These leaves are at least 4 feet long. The bush is at least 8 feet tall. What a great place to play hide and go seek. On another day I found a little rusted scooter under here and a play sword.

Spanish moss exotic? Not in my opinion. More like creepy.


Staghorn fern has come back from the freeze and gotten huge.

Beautyberry - not enough to make jelly this year, maybe next.

I have over 200 of my garden pictures posted at  Look for Garden of Verdure.   Currently listed under Top Gardens.
