A Blue Frog Figurine

I'm very sure everyone have more than one frog story. Be it similar to the Frog & the Princess or a fact that many proverbs and legends pertaining them.
My story is simple - I'm fascinated by them. I had more than once rescued all the tadpoles from a puddle and nursed them into baby frogs or toads (really never get to see them once they are out of the water) And they do more good in your garden - keeping all the mosquito at bay.

Not really sure what wrong with my camera setting- I cannot get the right blue in my picture.
The blue that appears to me is mysterious and exotic - here it appeared as a wash-down plastic blue.
Anyway, I wanted to set all the slow growing plants with an exotic look.
These are the plants in the collection:

1) Philodendron Xanadu - planted inside the blue pot
2) Silver Squill - Ledebouria socialis
3) Matchstick Bromeliad - Aechmea gamospepala (I'm guessing - it could be a neoregelia)
4) Cardboard Palm (Cycad) - Zamia Furfuracea
5) Caladium Humboldtii
6) Chinese Evergreen - Aglaonema Valentine
7) Calathea Majestica - (hidden at the back)

Looks like only the Philodendron Xanadu & Cardboard Palms putting up new leafs after planting them in this pot.

I'm glad with my collection coming together with a nice little figurine setting in place.
Right now - the frog is totally hidden - guess it sort of creates a mysterious, secret garden concept thing.
Let me know what you think about this.


  1. How beautiful! That frogie add excitement to the combo. Brilliant arrangement!! Btw my Brom is a neo. You can see the bloom of another pot of the same plant in my earlier post.

  2. I like your combo arrangement and the frog is simply adorable. A good collection of the right temperament plants together.

  3. James, pinkish red colour appears at the centre first. The blooms will show up later.

    1. thanks.
      (secretly hoping mine is a matchstick brom)

  4. you really displayed the mystery of plants and colours. So many shapes these plants....

    1. The mystery thickens..
      Now the frog is totally hidden as the plants are growing covering the figurine.

  5. Hi James, it looks like you are not posting more often these days too! But i love that spotted plant in your dishgarden, what is that called?

  6. Hi again James, i am looking for your email add in the profile but it is hidden, I would like to ask you something as advised by Autumn Belle. Can you email me, my add is in my site. Thanks.

    1. I'm afraid the free space is all used up in this blogspot (currently 90% used)
      So - I really not sure what to do next - whether to delete the old post (copy and make a new account for the past years)
      or whether if there is another alternative.
