These are just a few of the different Lady Slipper orchids I saw while visiting Longwood Gardens. The Lady Slippers are one of my favorite plants and flowers ever since I have seen the wild Pink Lady Slippers growing in the woods near my house.

It was wonderful to see all the different colors and varieties. They do resemble the ballerina slippers. They are rare plants in the wild and in some states endangered. They can not picked or they will not regenerate.

Morning Glories

A few years ago we planted this morning glory plant along our fence. The chain link fence was necessary for our dog but I was not happy with the look and wanted a vine to grow over the fence to hide it. We also planted some Clematis at the other end and have some wild pokeberries growing in the middle. It will be interesting to see what wins in the end.

The morning glories curl up during the day but are fully open early in the morning or during a cloudy day.

Pokeberry, as I am writing this post there is a flock of Robins eating my pokeberries. It was fun watching the Robins for awhile this morning.

This Clematis was blooming on Oct 2 along the fence. I was surprised to see a bloom pop out at this time of the year.

These are just some of the orchids we saw at the Longwood gardens. There was a separate room for all the orchids they were growing. They all looked so beautiful and delicate. I was amazed that there is such a variety of orchids. Some of my favorites were the yellow, purple or lavender colors.

I have been so happy the plants I picked out for my deck last spring. They are all still hanging in there and looking great.

The Fiesta Double Impatiens have been blooming all summer long. We did have to make sure they were watered often.

This is what they looked like back in May, they are much larger now.

This Lantana is one of my favorites.

The potted Hibiscus has also been doing great all summer.

This Penta is another favorite and has bloomed all summer.

I am not sure what these flowers are called but I thought they were beautiful. They were part of Longwoods Gardens outdoor display. I would love to have a big grouping of these beauties in my yard.
