#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.

Awesome.

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.

the second one looks like an alternaria of some sort.

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...
