  1. What a lovely yellow viola. And your flowering kale looks so fresh, not like the one I posted from our local upstate, NY botanical gardens earlier this week. One of my husband's co workers just returned from visiting his son in Austin and loved the city. Happy GBBD!

  2. We share the same vegetation, except those violas that i always love even if they don't grow here. What about that abutilon, is it really variegated? The spots on the leaves look like because of pests. Your green denro is also very special.

    1. Yep - it's really variegated (little yellow spots). It's presently not looking it's best; you can find a better picture of the leave here.
