Pigsqueak

We had just enough snow earlier this week to cover the garden with a tiny white layer..
This plant, called schoenlappersplant in Dutch and Bergenia in English is aka "elephant's ears" -due to the shape of the leaves, and aka "pigsqueak" -due to the sound produced when 2 leaves are rubbed together... haha I will definitely have to try that! :)

I'm linking to Nick's Floral Friday Fotos.

  2. We have elephant ear plants here also. They grow huge. I've never rubbed the leaves together, though. I'll probably never do that, come to think of it! Heh, heh.

  7. I've heard of elephant ears but not pigsqueak. I like how the plant is covered with a touch of snow. Nice composition, Marleen.

  8. There's a plant here we call elephant ear, but I don't think it's the same thing.
