  1. I don't know the first three different plants. The rest are tropical plants. Yes, the leaves are different from short to long.

    Thanks for visiting mine. Have a great weekend.

  7. Good Morning Anni,
    I love the pictures of the leaves you showed. The only one I know is the Canna Lily, Gardenia, and Hibiscus. The other one's I'm not familiar with. GUESS WHAT? We FINALLY got our BIG SNOW yesterday and last night. It FINALLY started SNOWING here around 11:30.m. and the School let out at 12:15p.m. My DH made it home from Memphis around 3:30p.m. It doesn't look like we will get to move today. I'm guessing we got around 5 or 6 inches of SNOW here yesterday and last night. When I went to bed around 7:00p.m., it was still Snowing then. My DH and the girls tried ot make a Snowman yesterday afternoon, but the Snow was too wet. If we don't move today, I'm sure they will be out trying again. LOL. I was going to take some pictures of the Snow with my new camera, but I had to charge the batteries up, so I wasn't able to. I plan on taking some today if we don't get to move. If I do take some, I will show them tomorrow. I did put up a new post this morning as well. Everyone is still sleeping and when my DH wakes up, I'll have to see what he thinks about us moving today. I'm doubting it tho as we have so much Snow outside. I'm thinking of making some Homemade Soup today and maybe even some Snow Cream. It all depends on if we move or not. I'm really excited about trying out the new camera. I have no excuse now huh? LOL. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

    Love & Hugs,
    Karen H.

  30. Different and interesting! I recognized a few of them, and have a Hibiscus that I'm trying to get through the winter. It would do better if my cat didn't insist on munching the leaves on it.

  39. Hi,
    I enjoyed your photo interpretation of ‘different’ this week … and the accompanying labels to help the ‘plant recognition challenged’ like myself.

    Just wanted to let you know I left a bit of ‘bling’ at Small Reflections and I’m hoping there’s something you don’t yet have (or didn’t create yourself).

    Hugs and blessings,

  41. Anni,

    The photos of your plants are beautiful - so lush and green. Thanks so much for sharing.

    Lots of snow up here this morning. Hubby didn't get in until 10am - very late. The roads are treacherous and it is still snowing.

    Take care and have a wonderful weekend.

    Blessings and love,
    Mary
