How Does Your Garden Grow?

A little nip into some gardens tucked between the museums in Washington D.C. 
I was quick (ish). I just needed a little fix, but I didn't want to hold everyone up, and mosquito time was prime.

A living wall panel!
I gave it a good inspection to see how they did things.
If you look closely, you can see that they are all planted in small plastic containers like you would buy a plant in from a garden centre. 
I liked seeing that they used some of the alpines that I have in some of my pallet planters. "Hey Cousin!"
And I really like that grassy patch at the top corner. Cogs turning...

I don't know what they are, but these big spiky leaves got my r.e.s.p.e.c.t. 
That's one tough chick of a plant.

Hope you all are well! Looking forward to catching up:-)



  1. That living wall panel is a fantastic idea. I rather fancy one of those for my garden! Your photos of the flowers against the brick are great!

  2. Studded leaves - wow!

    Have a great weekend!

  3. Yes, that living wall is fab isn't it, setting my mind a turning too. And I too think that spiky leaf plant is totally cool-want one!

  4. The flowers are amazing, but that building!!! ;-)

  5. Some really interesting flora there. Punk rock leaves and the living wall is mega!

  6. Wow those spiky leaves are something else - never seen anything like those before!

  7. Leaves with spikes! Louis Vuitton leaves! Bonkers but very cool indeed. That living wall looks awesome, I'd love to do something like that - it's exactly the sort of thing that my husband would complain at me about even considering, muttering something about damp walls, but I feel I neeeeeed in my life. Reckon some sort of two palette wide and two deep freestanding living wall might work? Sort of a living garden divider?
    Loving the terracotta coloured building backdrop - impressive - I thought you've been quiet - you've been stateside!
    Thanks for joining in again x

  8. What a cool wall of plants! Loving that idea. Great shots - amazing variety :) #hdygg
