Kia hora te manno
Kia whakapapa paumamu te moana
Kia tere te Karohirohi

May the calm be widespread
May the sea glisten like the greenstone
And may the glimmer of summer dance across your pathways

Out with the old, in with the new

A few weeks ago this pot was planted with an ornamental kale which had grown very tall and was going to seed. I have replaced the kale with a Heavenly Bamboo.

I love the bronze orange of the new leaves, and the blue green of the older leaves.

The variegated Moor grass, which was planted last fall, is just starting to make an appearance behind the little rock.

I have added a little interest to the pot by placing a couple of seashells, a small Oriental statue and a piece of coral on top of the pine needle mulch.

Very nice, I too have seashells scattered around.

I enjoyed catching up with your spring. Your blooms are glorious, and the rabbit fat.
