A Metamorphosis of Sorts on the 30TH Metamorphosis Monday

Welcome to another Metamorphosis Monday. The 30Th Monday for such an event. Wow!!! Times sure flies when you're having a good time. :-))
This event is hosted by Susan from Betweennapsontheporch. Be sure to treat yourself by swinging over to check out the full list of participants.
This is my first time participating in quite awhile. I'm glad you stopped by.
Many of you know I haven't purchased one plant this year. I know slap my hands. Just could not get in the swing of doing the full gardening thing this year. However, I've watched this plant and a few others all summer long. I've recorded their progress via digital camera and wanted to share the progress of this particular plant. This has come up voluntarily. I honestly can't remember the name of this ground cover. I do remember purchasing it because the beauty of the green and clover like leaf enticed me. If any of you know, please share the name with us. I planted it about 3 years ago and quite honestly thought I had lost it to winter kill. But look at this beauty go.

Slowly, over the edge it starts. Close up for you.
From above I took this picture on Saturday and look at the way it's trailing over the edge.
Don't you love the lime green color?









I hope you enjoyed my version of a Metamorphosis. I always enjoy you stopping by and leaving your comments. Susan, thanks for making these Mondays possible by hosting Metamorphosis Monday. Now, guys and gals don't forget to swing by http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/ for a full list of participants. I'll see you there.......

I think it is creeping ginny or something like that. We have some at the edge of the patio, buried under the Hosta. It grows back every year. I love the lime green!

Pretty metamorphosis, Lynne!

Melissa Miller said...

Lynne your "Creeping Jennie" are gorgeous! I have always loved that plant as a trailing accent. I have some too. :)

Dolores said...

I thought it might be maiden hair fern, but I see others think it is creeping jenny! They must be similar because my maiden hair looks like that!

What a pretty little plant. I have no idea what it is, but it looks like a great little ground cover to have in the flower garden. Sally

Hi Lynne, I don't know what kind it is but it is gorgeous! Love the color. It looks like some kind of a herb...Christine

Envoy-ette said...

LOL...I was thinking...your pot is so pretty, I wouldn't want the plant to get much bigger! Of course, my pots are falling apart, so that plant is just what I need!

Glenda/MidSouth said...

Sorry, but can't help with the name, but it is pretty. I put some ground cover in 2 of my pots this year - one is sad looking and the other is so-so and not sure if it will come back next year.

pk said...

You're right, the green color is great! One of my favorite colors right now.

Very pretty color! I love when my flower pots surprise me with an unexpected flower or accent green.

Susan (Between Naps on the Porch) said...

It's definitely Creeping Jenny...I love it. It winters over in my tall urns outside and comes back every year. :-) Great ground cover. Your's really took off! :-)
