Not flowers exactly, but coleus leaves are bright and colorful,
and that's close enough for me....
Especially this time of year.

The yard(?) looks lovely. I always try to have ever-green plants in the garden.It's like having flowers all year round, with the variegated leaves!

There is a kind of floral presence in coleus leaves! These are so lovely!

I think they bring lovely colour to the garden, beauty in everything remember. I also like very much the series of photos in the last post.

Yes, it's lovely to have variegated colour to complement the single solid coloured flowers and leaves. Fascinating water feature too!

this herb is versatile--lots of medicinal uses, it's colorful and the flower is very pretty.:p

I've never seen this plant before. I wonder if it would grow here. The color is nice. :)

They are beautiful though not as colorful as flowers.

Always loved Coleus plants, but they are all frozen here this time of year.
Thanks for your visit and comment on my blog.

I love the color of the leaves, gorgeous.

great photos....absolutely love that 'water feature', and this is outside your mobile home!?
I admire your adventurousness in living out your dream....

as pretty as any bouquet could be. :)

Coleus is such a beautiful plant and the color on these is gorgeous. Those lime green leaves streaked with red is so dramatic.

Oh, your plant is really beautiful!
Have a nice week end!

Love the variety of colors for coleus. My neighbor grows them by the pot full.

Nice shots, Sallie. The fountain really adds to the beauty; plants and water belong together.
November 16, 2012 at 12:35 PM
So pretty, especially with the water feature! I may have to plant some coleus next year. :-)
November 16, 2012 at 02:13 PM
Certainly one of my favorite plants for pots in the yard...Easy to grow from seed too! Love the one you have shown, the outlined leaf is really sharp looking!
November 16, 2012 at 04:34 PM
Wow, the coleus is very pretty. I like the colors. Have a great weekend, Sallie!
November 16, 2012 at 04:56 PM
I love coleus and they come in so many different varieties. These are very beautiful.
November 16, 2012 at 05:12 PM
I love the coleus because it is easy to grow and maintain and thare are many colourful varieties to choose from.

Nothing is quite like coleus come late autumn. Ours just finally wilted about a week ago when we had a hard frost, Sallie. It is good to see yours here.
November 16, 2012 at 07:06 PM
I prefer Coleus in plants to mums this time of year. Hopefully I will remember to plant some for next autumn's display.

Very nice - I've always wanted a water feature in my yard.
November 17, 2012 at 08:44 AM
I am so loving their colors, a magnificent combination of purple and almost yellowish. Do you know if they have medicinal purposes?
November 17, 2012 at 12:36 PM
Lovely..it is getting hard for me to find flowers, but I love the look of leaves too

Beautiful! Will you be going back to Florida soon!

Hi Sallie, coleus are always very colorful and beautiful plants in any garden, just like the caladiums. I also have one in ours but it doesn't give maximum beauty as my mother cannot give it full care when I am away. But at least there are some colors.
November 17, 2012 at 05:01 PM
Your coleus are gorgeous.

Love the color. Most of the coleus I see around here are red.

Those coleus leaves are beautiful! Coleus comes in so many colours now!!
And I love the geese, especially the photo where you changed the colours! Right now, I think they are strengthening muscles and eating to build up their strength. They don't need to leave early on my account!!
