New fav- Sedum rupestre "Angelina" ATC!


I was making some art with my grandson yesterday and just collaged this ATC from magazine photo and words. I love this type of Sedum. Well, the name is so angelic...how can you resist??? The soft starry shape is alluring and I can see a nice hanging bowl of this on my front porch! Below is a pic I found at Upland Nursery. It looks really good next to this other sedum called Sedum Bronze Carpet!!!

I really enjoy seeing your ATCs. I like the black and white you did for Mondays post. I need to start taking some black and white photos also. Have a great day. We are enjoying some sunshine here also. A time to dry out. : )

The ATC looks like it would be a good way to teach kids plant names. I'll have to remember that one!

Neat atc and I love that last picture.

Arelonian- the link did not work, but I searched for Avonia papyracea, and found pics of it at Dave's Garden! WOW...very unusual!!! Especially when flowering!!! Thanks for letting me know...I had not ever seen this before!!!

I'm glad you found it! For some reason I links never seem to work for other people...

Julie said...

Arelonian- Thanks again!!!!! :)

Hi Julie
You were asking me about a Finnish bread with cardamom seed. Yes you must mean “pulla”. Is it a sweeter type of bread? Pulla has cardamon seed in it and EVERY Finnish household serves it with coffee. Its one of those things that is always served.
I have a receipe for that one and will send it to you probably tonight when I’m home from work ok?
Have a great day.
Judi

I love that stuff too! I have it all over the place, you just break off a little and drop it and it roots. :) Perfect little planty. Also I think the green sedum--maybe I'm mistaken--but I think it is used in Korean cuisine. The bronze one I used to have something like that in Wisconsin. Also very nice!

Julie said...

Mary...You are so lucky!!! I am gonna get me a pot of these going!!!

Lovely plant and ATC, Julie. I've tried growing sedum here but without much success. It must be that I'm planting them in the wrong places--too close to the house and too moist. It's just that they're so appealing I want to look at them as soon as I walk out the door.

That sedum is lovely next to the Sedum Bronze Carpet! Nice ATC too, Julie!
