Leaf walk with Doozey!

Can I go for a leaf walk, Momma??? Please?

Right around the corner, we saw this lovely croton!

Ooooh, this is fun...what will we find next Mom?????

Another Croton!!! Look at the colors in this one? My Mom, Julie, is crazy over this one!

Yikes...this scary guy made us jump...the shadows from his leaves made a haunted appearance and he seemed to come out of the dark suddenly!

Pretty little ficus leaves.

Some elephant ears?????

Could this be a Palmetto???

Giant Sea Grape leaves. Look at the size compared to my Mom's hand. She really likes these, except they are very messy and blow all around constantly from the neighbors yard. Year-round too. Unendingly. She still likes the neighbor though!

Who could resist the shiny new little leaves on the Sea Grape??? Sweet!

Look what is nestled here amongst the Lantana leaves! A bloom in the dark.

A "Mexican Sunflower" leaf.

That was fun I can sleep in peace!

Have a great night!

Maybe this is one of those "duh" questions, but are there an inordinate number of succulents down your way, or do you just notice them all? I don't think we have all that many up here. jan

Doozey is so cute, Julie... I'm sure he enjoyed all of the leaves you saw... That scary tree was staring at you!!!

Love all of the leaves --especially those pretty crotons.

Thanks for taking us on your walk!!!

The variations in nature are amazing, aren't they... thanks for taking us on your walk...

BTW - I answered your question in my comments. That's right, I actually do know the difference in those two concregations... LOL...

Doozey is such a cutie with her daisy halter on. The leaves are all very pretty. It is such a green time of year. That tree is spooky.

Thanks for taking us on a walk with you and your Mom, Doozey....those leaves are all fantastic! I love the shine on the Ficus leaves and the colours in the crotons are magnificent!

All of this foliage is so healthy looking, cute tired pup. Is that mezoo in your header?

Your pup is so cute and it looks like you had a great walk. Some great looking plants. I love lantana. Question: How do you get more people to follow your blog?
