Dried White Dahlia Blossom

After taking a photo of this I set it aside and once dry I found it attractive with the rustic markings on it. Added my own texture overlay in Photoshop CS5.

Photography By Sandra Foster
This is a trailing vine with lush bright green leaves. Highly recommend it to cascade over the front of a large pot.

New Guinea Impatience Plant

I grew this as a outdoor potted plant. It bloomed till frost threatened then I brought it in and enjoyed it as a houseplant. The blossoms are very delicate.
