  2. I tend to think in fabrics when I see photos like these. I love the color combination of the two...vibrant, deep green and that lushious purple work so well together!

  12. Daryl! This is really fine. You need to post this for Mosaic Monday, a new photo theme hosted by Mary at Little Red House.
    Where did you do this mosaic?

  25. They're beautiful! Some day, when twin babies allow, I will have a garden with iliums. Until then, I'll settle for the patch of weeds that surround my few brave perennials!
