    Maybe this is another benefit of a trip the the college greenhouse? Maybe not. Regardless, it’s a beauty. And it lets me use a word that I never get to use… writhen!

  3. Kathy Sturr says:

    Love that he? she? is reaching out to you! And love that word “writhen!”

  4. Laurie Graves says:

    Looks like a creature ready to crawl away! Wonderful energy in that picture.

  5. Your images are so good!!

  6. Kris P says:

    If I didn’t know better, I’d guess it was a Crassula of some sort. What is it?

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Sadly, I neglected to check the label. My thought was a gesneriad of some sort judging by the flower and its proximity to goldfish and lipstick plants in the collection. The leaves look like Crassula, but not the flower. I guess I’ll have to check on my next visit. 🙂

    • Eliza Waters says:

      I finally have an answer for you, Kris. This plant is a Gesneriad from Brazil (I guessed the family right at least 🙂 ) – its name is quite a mouthful: Nematanthus pycnophyllus. It doesn’t appear to have common name. But after a few practice rounds, it begins to roll off the tongue! NEE-MA-TAN-THUS PINK-NO-FY-LUS 🙂

    Imagine if there was a flower in each leaf nook 😍

    Looks kinda caterpillar-ish. 😀

  10. Nice. Enjoy the pattern.

  11. Hi Eliza – I have been wondering why I haven’t been getting notifications of your posts – so I thought I’d come and check. Wow! I’ve missed a lot of good stuff!

  12. Robbie says:

    MIss you Eliza:-), Belated happy holidays!!!! I miss your inspiring posts and photos…I am going to take a look around and check out what you have been up to lately:-)

  13. Robbie says:

    ( ) that is a hug for you…I am back..and eager to see what your paradise is got going on!

  14. Brenda says:

    Exquisite! And I learned a new word.

  15. Robin says:

    This is beautiful. What is it?
    On an unrelated note, I’m not getting notifications when you post so will sign up again.

  16. Eliza Waters says:

    Thank you, Robin. Not sure what the plant is as I spaced out on checking the label. I’m guessing an exotic gesneriad?? You’re the second person who said WP dropped me. WP has been acting weird again of late. I often wonder about ‘that man behind the curtain.’ 😉

  17. That is indeed a beauty. Your photography is astounding.

    Is that a cactus of some kind?
