Gorgoeus! Thank you for sharing these and have a great week.


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!!

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

Your coleus are gorgeous.


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.


Beautiful! Will you be going back to Florida soon!


Rambling Woods

Lovely..it is getting hard for me to find flowers, but I love the look of leaves too


I am so loving their colors, a magnificent combination of purple and almost yellowish. Do you know if they have medicinal purposes?


Very nice - I've always wanted a water feature in my yard.

Oh, what a gorgeous splash of colour!

I prefer Coleus in plants to mums this time of year. Hopefully I will remember to plant some for next autumn's display.


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.


I love the coleus because it is easy to grow and maintain and thare are many colourful varieties to choose from.


I love coleus and they come in so many different varieties. These are very beautiful.


Wow, the coleus is very pretty. I like the colors. Have a great weekend, Sallie!


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!


So pretty, especially with the water feature! I may have to plant some coleus next year. :-)


Nice shots, Sallie. The fountain really adds to the beauty; plants and water belong together.



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


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

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


as pretty as any bouquet could be. :)


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


I love the color of the leaves, gorgeous.

Taken For Granted

Always loved Coleus plants, but they are all frozen here this time of year.

Thanks for your visit and comment on my blog.


Lovely photos, i always like coleus leaves,

They are beautiful though not as colorful as flowers.


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

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

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


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.

Gemma Wiseman

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


Lovely leaves!


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!
