I recently bought these but have no idea what they are, ideas?
#1 is Thalictrum aquilegifolium. You will probably also get the suggestion that it's Aquilegia but note the dark, wiry stems.
uh, sorry alta, but I think that first one is an Adiantum (maidenhair fern) of some sort.
Sorry but I'm an admitted houseplant-killer so I don't really try to get to know them.
Wow! If I wasn't already in awe enough of plantfreak78's voracious chocolate appetite, I'm flabbergasted by that ID of the fern.
Unfortunately, all I have handy for prizes are summery dessert images - but there is some fine chocolate cake centered there, ready to be slathered with fresh strawberries and whipped cream...
I agree - first one is Adiantum, probably the cv. 'Pacific Maid'.
No amount of chocolate will make me divulge the name of the second one.
Sorry, growin. No cake for you :) I think it's a houseplant (in that zone anyway). It's got that pronounced midrib like a citrus would...
VV, I swear one day I will show up on your doorstep like a stray cat. The question is, will you invite me in or swat at me with a broom?
The last 5 stray cats that have showed up at the Valley were ushered right in - and are now treated like royalty. They do not, however, receive any of the (chocolate or otherwise) treats previously illustrated.
Are you up on your shots? Spayed? Do you prefer a chamois throw, or will you curl up in any old box that's left laying around?
I think that there will be plenty of the confections to be shared - and we'll keep the porch light on...
Alright, I'll admit I wasn't really going to hold out on you anyway.
I think the second is Alternanthera ficoidea, which looks a little different due to tough Colorado growing conditions. I think Nel was on the same wavelength.
VV, thanks for the choco-porn.
VV, like a cat I'm taking my sweet time to answer you. I'm probably far too finicky for your household and the precious kitten I have at home would miss me so I guess for now I'm staying put. But if a vacation ever takes me within 100 miles of your place, I'm surely stopping in for a visit.
Vestia, "choco-porn" is my new favorite word :)
Well, if I ever get down to visit my brother/family in Raleigh, I'll give you a head's up - if you haven't already fixed on the "choco-porn" cruising in on I-40...
