It would appear I am not the only one smitten with this beautiful plant. At least this little bee stayed very still and allowed me to snap some really good photos of him. I actually think the below photo would make an excellent painting some day. Hmm.....food for thought.
On my front porch I have Impatiens growing up all over the place, from pots as well as very large planters made from old fence posts that now sit in my front yard. Impatiens are one of my favorite annuals, I love how their beautiful and colorful blooms continue throughout the summer and fall and how they spill over the pots and planters they are in.
I cannot forget about the Coleus, I love these plants.......I have some on my front porch at the moment and snapped quite a few close up shots of their leaves....I have to admit, I think Coleus leaves would make a wonderful abstract painting at some point. That is what I had in mind anyway, when I took the below photo.
