Korean Rock Fern and Glowing Asters

Time for an actual plant/garden post now that I have flaunted Emma on Blotanical ? ; )
My little Korean Rock ferns that I found very early back in the Spring have taken to their new home without a problem so far .. then again just by saying this I have probably jinxed myself with them and they will not appear next Spring ? .. Ahhhh ... Naahhh ! they wouldn't do THAT to me !
I have had these white asters so long now I have no idea what they are .. but they ARE tenacious ! .. at times I got fed up on powdery mildew with them .. so I yanked a lot out. I did leave a few just to see if they would think about what they had been up to with the mildew thing .. and I think that thought process worked .. because they have been behaving themselves quite nicely now : )
They really do almost GLOW in the dark with that white on white with a little yellow face.
I love the rain drops on the leaves ..

Hi Joy - that really does brighten up a dark corner doesn't it?

Just popped over to say wheeeeeeee you've got Dr Who, wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

We've got Merlin over here - I think you'll enjoy that one too!

And did you have a go at the apple cake?

GardenJoy4Me said...

Helllllooooo there VP !
Yes.. finally Dr.Who .. and I hope you have been watching "Fringe" ?
Haven't gotten to the apple cake yet .. I have been pigging out on assorted sinful treats lately and oops .. there is more to come yet ? LOL .. but I love that recipe and I want to try it out !

PG .. the white is always a bit hard to get good focus with the shot .. they do almost glow ! This fern is a keeper for sure : )

Hi Yvonne .. Emma has to try everything out ? LOL .. Yup .. I'm loving this fern to bits !

Hi Joy, The asters are spectacular....I have a small wild one in the garden but it sure doesn't shine like these, do. Hey, what's with Emma and Blotanical...I have been gone since last night? Gail

Hi Gail .. Emma would not take "no" for an answer while I was in my "office" on my lap top reading posts .. she wanted to "pick" ? haha
This white aster has been with me since I started up this garden .. it just won't leave me ? haha
