Good Fences - September 18, 2014

Hello & Welcome.

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

Click to Enlarge Photos.

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.

  19. 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 ...

  28. 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?

  32. 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.
