Six on Saturday

One of the other blogs I’ve encountered because of their “like” of mine was “The Compulsive Gardener” who copied another blog’s “Six on Saturday” garden blogging phenomena with her own “Six on Saturday–A Flurry of Flowers.” If you want to learn more, go to the originator’s blog: The Propagator. Or to his 6 on Sat collection and Participant Guide. I don’t plan to do this every Saturday, but thought it would be fun to do it at least one time to help propagate the idea! 🙂 And ohhh, is it hard to limit myself to just 6! 🙂 But here is 6 of my favorite from My Garden Gallery:

1. Triqui-Traque or Flamevine Closeup

2. Tibouchina or Princess Flower

3. Heliconia with Plumbago

4. Maraca Plant or Shampoo Ginger

5. Torch Ginger or El bastón de emperador

6. Garden Art by Anthony Jeroski

Garden Art by Anthony Jeroski – It was pottery and broken by gardeners. I plan to replace it with Costa Rican Indigenous People Art. Red Ginger & Purple Petunias with it in this photo.

All of the above images were chosen as favorites from My Garden Gallery where you can see many more of my flowers, plants and trees.

  1. Charlie: I’m so very touched at your mention of my blog post. That was very kind of you! Your flowers here are dazzling and make me wish I lived in Costa Rica! I especially love the photo of the Heliconia with Plumbago. Gorgeous color combo. Your lush tropical garden was a balm to see today, as here in California, the extreme drought continues and now we have the new-normal Fall wildfire smoke driving us all indoors. Thanks for sharing your amazing photos! In gratitude, lisa at

    1. Why Lisa, I had to mention you! You are the one who inspired me to write that post! 🙂 I thought it a great idea!

      And I hope you see my Sunday post tomorrow which features different kinds of photos I did before moving to Costa Rica. Life is good!

      And stop by when you come to Costa Rica where it is Springtime year around! ¡Pura Vida! ~Charlie
