It's always a pleasure to join Theresa (The Run-a-Round Ranch Report) for GOOD FENCES.

This week I am featuring this fence and it's accompanying vegetation.
These are Chinese Lantern Plants. I've loved these plants since I was a little girl and my aunt grew them at her place. I loved popping them open to see what was inside. These grow on some property that is a few blocks away and I go every year to check them out.
Aren't they fun and colorful. The red tones of the fence really look great with the bright orange fruit and the green leaves of the lantern plant.
Don't forget to stop by Theresa's blog and check out the other participants.

Quick we must hurry before the fence is completely covered in beautiful growths!ReplyDelete
Oh I think I have seen that plant before. I was fascinated by the flower pods. Thanks for the memory. Thank you too for visiting my Rural Illinois Good Fence.ReplyDelete

Let's try again. I was told on my first comment that there was an error.ReplyDelete
I love the combination of the fence with the vegetation. That's a fun plant...
Very nice lantern plant flowers with the take of the fence.ReplyDelete
Fall look indeed.
This is truly lovely. The colours are gorgeous!ReplyDelete
Hi there! I'm finally home from my week in Alaska baby-sitting my daughter's two little girls. I'm worn out, but loved every minute of it! Your plants with that red fence made for some terrific photos!ReplyDelete
Great photos! I have seen those plants before and always wondered what they were called. Thanks for ID'ing them for me :)ReplyDelete
I love chinese lanterns and they look like they definitely like it there!ReplyDelete
Love it!! Gosh, it's been years since I've seen those plants. Used to make earrings out of them with sticky glue. Funny...how entertaining life was way back when.ReplyDelete
Great fences Ida.
Really lovely shots!ReplyDelete
lovely how nature wraps around fencesReplyDelete
I don't recall seeing one of these plant in person, I'd be inclined to pop them open too. They look nice against the fence.ReplyDelete
I've never seen a Chinese Lantern plant, but those blooms really do look like lanterns. They look good up against the fence.ReplyDelete
Lovely flowers. They do look good growing by that fence.ReplyDelete
Those are beautiful! One of my favorites although I've never grown them. Maybe next year...ReplyDelete
They are lovely next to that fence.ReplyDelete
What cool plants! (Nice fence too)ReplyDelete
I love these lantern flowers. They are so cute! Great fence shots. Enjoy the rest of your day!ReplyDelete
I love the lanterns plants. I saw some in Switzerland, but not with your awesome fence. I wish there were some way to make them glow in the dark ... wouldn't that be awesome? Nice shot, Ida ...ReplyDelete

Ida, I have always LOVED those plants. Aren't they pretty against that fence! When I was a kid I like to open them up. They seemed so exotic! So did the money plant. Are you familiar with that?ReplyDelete
The Lanterns look so cute and pretty.ReplyDelete
They are beautiful!ReplyDelete
I think there is a park here in Columbus that grows blue ones.
Pretty pictures! Oh yeah, I like these lanterns since my childhood too and since I have an own garden, I have lanterns there.ReplyDelete
Have a nice and quiet weekend :-)
Didn't those plants have a berry of some sort in the lantern? Or am I getting mixed up with something else? Lovely fresh colours in these snaps.ReplyDelete
made for each other, you captured them in such pretty light!!!!ReplyDelete
I like your fence shot with the very pretty and unique flowers.ReplyDelete
So pretty against the fence.ReplyDelete
Oh I love these lanterns!!! so do my kids because up here, they just happen to bloom in October - so we have lanterns in the garden for Halloween!! I put a solar light near so they are lit up on that spooky night.ReplyDelete
