Ornamental

OK, the only outdoor space I have for growing things here in the city is a small 8' x 8' deck. Consequently, we never plant anything that's strictly ornamental. Everything needs to pull its weight in our small space so we go heavy on herbs and veggies, with the most ornamental thing being some opal basil.

Well, that all went out the window when I saw this gorgeous datura plant in the flower market last week!


I can't stand the double ruffle trumpet with the bright white interior and the purple exterior - OMG so beautiful!!!!

So now there's another pot crammed on the tiny deck, with something that is strictly there for beauty, a little eye candy. Sigh...I couldn't help myself! I'm week around the insanely pretty and purple...

Call it - orna-mental!

My garden rules are: it must be native, edible or useful at the shop! If it doesn't meet any of those criteria, it doesn't get purchased! Helps keep my plant expenses in check or I'd go crazy!

A very good rule to plant by!
