It's fascinating to see plants you think of as house plants growing outside. During a recent trip to Florida, I visited a friend and took a quick walk around her garden. The colours and textures were astonishing. I can't name any of the plants, although they may be familiar to those of you who live in warmer climes. Nameless or not, I loved what I saw, particularly the large-leafed beauties below. Who can resist a shape like this rounded indentation? And the colour contrast was delicious.
