Upside Down, Boy You Turn Me

Yesterday a parcel of plants was left, according to the email I received whilst I was out working, “In a safe place”.   This oh so secure and nurturing place was outside my front door in the rain.  To add insult to injury it was upside down, in a box with clear arrows to prevent such mistakes.   I sighed.  I did my best to rescue the fallen.  I complained.  New plants are on the way.

Today at Button Moon the morning began damp and drizzly.  Last night we suffered supposedly heavy rain but as it passed in my dreams I can’t confirm this.   Perhaps this allegedly severe weather was the reason that some of the heuchera leaves had turned upside down.  Whatever the reason, the vibrant violet, raindropped undersides were quite beautiful.

  1. ‘This Way Up’ with an umbrella sign might have worked but then again maybe not.
    I like Heucheras more and more, the range of coloured leaves is amazing and they seem to do well here.

  2. I’ve just planted a heuchera (my first) that I rescued from the ailing plants dept for $5. Whether it survives remains to be seen. One can only try.
