Yesterday was spent styling the house and online shopping for exotic plants for my garden. Definitely two of my favorite activities.
I found several plants that I have been wanting at one of my favorite sources, Plant Delights Nursery including Brugmansias and two black Colocasias or Elephant Ears. I love black plants in the garden - a favorite book of mine on the subject that I read again yesterday is Black Magic and Purple Passion by Karen Platt.
Here is one of the plants I ordered.

I have always loved black foliage and black flowering plants and I think the combination will be stunning with the green, chartreuse, white, and pink palette I am using.
I hope everyone has a safe and relaxing Labor Day. I am so enjoying some much needed R & R.
