Pretty Pods

It's time again to show off MadSnapper's Grandchildren.  Hubby and I are so proud of our beautiful Poincianas! They now have so many pods!  I have to tell you, it has been so cool to watch them grow from seeds that Sandra and Bob sent us into these lovely flowers.  Every time a bloom leaves us these pods grow right in behind them!  So cool and amazing!  Hubby will be transplanting more in the next couple of days, basically we will have Poincianas and Powder Puffs all over our yard. :)

Happy Sunday my friends!

MadSnapper's Grandchildren are Bold and Beautiful. Love the vivid colors. I still have a few roses and sunflowers but they will be gone as soon as the frost hits, any night now. It is just about dipping below the freezing point at night. It is nice to see the Autumn Moms and leaves though. :)

Beautiful plant -- the pods remind me of our trumpet vine. I wonder if they are related?

Are these pics of Bird of Paradise? Seems to be- but not sure.

Anyhoo- a plant that lookks like this one grows very well in the south central and southern part of Texas where the weather is milder. I have seen a few of these in my area but have learned that the plant will over winter if heavily mulched so that the roots are protected.
