Today it comes in a lot of colors and with variegated leaves, which is my favorite.  I am a sucker for anything with variegation.  It is very thorny and birds love to nest in it.  One of my future projects is to increase my Bouganvilla plants.

Wow, that all sounds so wonderful Dominic. Kudos to you for keeping track of your wildlife. (BTW, do you ever listen to the Living on Earth radio program?)

I love Bouganvilla. It is so pretty and just has an old-south mystique to it, imo. It is actually too cold in North Texas for it to survive the winter, so you rarely see it planted anywhere. 

For you Northerners not familiar with Bouganvilla, here are some pics:

Those are pretty. Seems to me I've seen those used in flower arrangements. I suspect they come in many different colors?

Comment by Daniel W on March 24, 2013 at 10:06am

Chris, the clivias are beautiful!  We grow them too.  So dramatic and durable.  We let them go dry for the winter, then start watering in spring. Thank you for posting!

Isn't it nice that we have an atheist flower? Clivia miniata or kaffir lily: kaffir is Arabic for unbeliever. Mine flowers like mad.

I love your garden, Dominic! Can your Platycerium live outside the whole year round?

I'll upload some pictures of my ´garden´, when it turns green -  it's a long wait for spring this year.

Comment by Dominic Florio on March 24, 2013 at 12:42am

Wow!  Happy and safe cats as well as happy and safe birds.

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 24, 2013 at 12:31am

Thanks Dominic. Lots of ideas for keeping cats in and out. Now here is a doozie ... must be real cat lovers:

the walkway to the new cat sanctuary

This walkway from house to garden really indicates a devotion to their cats!

Anyone who wants to make the journey is welcome for lunch.  Wouldn't that be great.

Sentient, how exciting to have a Florida-Washington state connection of natural planting to preserve wild life refuge. I am so please to know you two fellows. You each set a high standard and one worthy of aspiring toward.
With all your fig starts, Sentient, you will have a virtual orchard and a great place for bees to restore their population. I like that you tilled up your lawn, and put in wildflowers. Surely your seeds will grow and multiply each year.
Clearing out the natural berries is quite a job ... not a task just anyone would take on. A beautiful growth of ivy can be very pretty but it can get out of hand.
How are you feeling Sentient? Getting some relaxation into your already busy schedule? I'm thinking about you and generating all the positive thoughts I can.
