What a beautiful morning to stroll through the garden as the sun came up today. The coleus and caladiums certainly are stars right now along with the dahlias. Soon enough the caladiums will begin their downward trip but those coleus just look so beautiful.

On top of a mountain, looking over SF on a foggy day, Mr. Coleus was not impressed.

I was hoping to see your trip photos, Dale. Glad you found some coleus friends to pal around with! LOL

Some nurseries carry lots of coleus here. Unfortunately I find way too many every year to buy. My favorites are the 1 gallon huge ones for $3.99 and up to $5.99. I have about 3 or 4 nurseries I go to if I want a big selection of kinds.

Which gardens did you go to?
