I have Argyranthemum Frutescens!

March 26, 2014

It is new to my yard and blooming beautifully in a pot that greets visitors as they enter the front walkway. Argyranthemum frutescens ‘Madeira Red’ is a mounded evergreen shrub that flowers all summer, grows best in full sun, well-drained soil or quality potting mix. I’ve had my ‘Madeira Red’ four weeks now and so far, no need to deadhead! Now that’s a perfect plant!

Dear Readers,

I want to thank those of you who have purchased Ashley’s Gift. It’s not easy sending one’s work out into the world, wondering where it will end up.

Being an author is a learning process. There are ups and downs, and 99 percent of the lessons are public! One of the first things that I learned is that Amazon offers FREE Kindle apps for any device! PC, Mac, iPhone, iPad, Android, and more.

Amazing!

You can purchase all the electronic books (mine included) you wish to read right from your laptop, desktop, phone, or tablet! According to Amazon, you can even, “start reading a book on one device, and pick up where you left off on another device.”

Where have I been?

I hope you take advantage of the FREE Kindle apps. There are thousands of e-books from which to choose!

Flowing beneath the oak branches, the sun’s rays magically turned Salvia ‘Maraschino’ gilt and deciduous appearing. But the foliage of this evergreen perennial was and still is green. What a treat, mid-morning, to view the highlighted foliage from my office window!
