And a FINE soup we are having with ingredients from all over the world, its so tasty, too. The letter F is not always a huge addition to the soup, and its why I save up my digitalis photos, because you never know when you are going to have nothing to show for a particular genus or common name leading letter. (Remember you can't show your photos twice, and in previous Soups we don't show anything from previous years either, but I am not so picky this Soup, and... I am not a Soup Nazi.) Therefore, I have no doubt you all have a PILE of Fs to fold into the soup. Im saving the foxgloves for later, but here are a FEW other Fs of mine, starting with what is often one of the FIRST things out here, Forcythia,

The only genus F plant in my garden is the Franklin tree, Franklinia alatamaha, discovered growing wild in 1765 near the Alatamaha River in Georgia by John and William Bartram of Philadelphia. The Bartram brothers named the tree for their friend Benjamin Franklin and propagated it from seeds they collected. All trees in commerce today are believed to be descendants of those seeds, and the tree is believed to be extinct in the wild. Bartram's Garden in Philadelphia has a very large, mature tree; mine is much younger and is only about 12 feet high.

With freezing temperatures in the forecast, this plant might produce the ice sculptures created by split stems. I'll be sure to check.

Long been one of my favourites for when Autumn/Winter arrives. Can already see a couple self-seeders coming through.

I am just loving all these FABULOUS F's! I cant say enough good about Figs in the soup, really. Here are a FEW more.

Fringed Shootingstar (Soldinella carpatica)



One of my favorite shrubs, Fothergilla, there are four species and I am not sure which one this is, but if its the dwarf, its not small. Just sayin'

What soup doesn't have a Fuschia. Grown from seed obtained by snipping dried fruit in the University of Victoria Rhodo garden and failing to write down which was which.


Thumb of 2018-01-15/KatEnns/ee7f2f

And FINALLY, Flax.

Thumb of 2018-01-15/KatEnns/5af10a

Please do add your F's!

F is for the Fouquierias and their flowers and fruit. Starting with two natives.





The white-flowered one has a funny fat form.



Lots of Dr. Seuss type plants in this genus. Smiling
