First Rain Clouds Blue Sky

              First Rains Welcomed 2013 Terrace Garden Clear Sky
 with the first clouds in the sky and the first welcome   rains after the summers, it was sure a  beautiful sight to view the garden getting the rain show from heaven.
The copper metallic color leaves plant which was at the back during winters  , gradually  took a great leap in growth during summers and spread like wild over the pot.
This plant looks very beautiful with its metallic color and tiny white flowers which glow against the back drop of metallic purple maroon colored leaves on the copper  leaf plant.
Growing different colored leaves and flowers is a passion and same colors greens ,  is so boring. Nature is seen in beauty of colors and as we associate plants leaves  with green colors  there are umpteen n number of colored leaves to be enjoyed in   nature.
The copper metallic colored leaves are great with white tiny flowers. I love the whitest white of these tiny flowers as they look very good in contrasting copper maroon tinted leaves.

Love Bird Budgie Sitting Comfortably on Hand Finger

 Meanwhile the budgie love birds, four of them, have been trained by  my son and this one seems to enjoy the trip of our home on his finger.
Training love birds is very delicate and slow process as they get scared , not their fault, we  appear as giants to them,. Only when they start trusting us, feeling comfortable with our presence, by our care over the years, that they love to sit on our hands, fingers and shoulders.
And once they trust us and enjoy playing, there is no looking back,  they want this time out frequently!
(this one is the most noisiest talkative of the four and also willing to pose for pics!),

Tiny white flowers on copper metallic purple leaf plants
This copper leaf plant grows best in indirect sunlight and regular  watering. A well draining sol is a must for healthy growing of copper leaf plant. Have not seen any plant diseases except few eaten leaves by bugs but the plant has recovered on its own.
For best visual impact grow as ground covers as this is a fast spreading creeper and will cover the ground very fast with tiny white flowers. The plant spreads around side ways from all directions leaving roots at regular intervals of few inches on the stems. Grow as side borders, centre arrangements in garden landscaping or in hanging pots.
All the Best!
