Foliage Follow-up Day, February 2015 – A sneak peak of good things to come, and a homage to Marty Feldman.

Behind in my blogging as usual – today my only FF-U Day offering consists of one shot from my far-too-early spring garden, and one recent fun acquisition.

The emerging leaves of Podophyllum pleianthum always excite me - even if they are much too early.

It will eventually have these large, wonderful umbrella-like leaves...

.... and underneath the umbrellas dwell these wonderful little red flowers. Something to look forward to, indeed!

My second feature this February is more about the container than the contained. My son’s school had an open house last week. As I strolled through the Art department, my eyes fell on this:

Which in turn made me think of Igor in Young Frankenstein. I just had to have it! The next day, I planted a Haworthia in it. Punk rock Marty makes me smile every day! Click over to Pam at Digging for more.

About annamadeit

Born and raised in Sweden, my aesthetics and outlook on life are strongly shaped by a culture rich in history and tradition. I care a great deal about environmental responsibility, and my aesthetic reflects the visually clean, functional practicality and sustainable solutions that are the hallmarks of modern Scandinavia. I was trained as an architect at the University of Cincinnati and as a color specialist at the Scandinavian Colour Institute in Stockholm. I'm obsessed with plants and gardens, and aim to take my skill set a step further by designing gardens as well as interiors. As someone so aptly said: " Architecture is the skin that separates the exterior from the interior". So true - you can't successfully focus on one without incorporating the other. I'm also an avid cook, and I love to ski. In addition, I put time and efforts into trying to rectify things that I feel are wrong in my immediate community. As you will see, The Creative Flux will touch on all these things, and more. For sure, it's all over the map, but then again - so am I! Welcome to my blog!

    That’s such a fun little planter. My Podophyllum is poking its little green nose up out of the soil too.

      Isn’t it, though? I wish I knew which kid made it, so I could show him or her what I did with it… I like how you said “its little green nose” – made me smile! 🙂

    Wonderful pot-succulent combination! I’m sure the young artist was pleased to find his work snagged a customer too.
