Dee these are gorgeous! Is that Morning Glory similar to Cindy's Heart? It looks a little bit like it. I love the Georgia Pearl!

Loved them all, Dee. Are those Coleus behind T. Celestial Beacon? Great pictures.
Would love to see some of them together in a group picture. You have a fantastic collection. How much time do you spend on them?

Hugs,
Judy

Thanks. That was my first bloom on Morning Glory and I thought the same thing Kristen...it sure is pretty isn't it? In person the pink is almost neon it is so bright.

Judy, I water something every day and I'm just getting proactive on pest control since I'm seeing a lot of thrip scratches on the blooms and I recently received some plants with spider mites. That plus cleaning up spent blooms so there is always something to do on a daily basis. When a plant is in bloom I'll either bring it inside or pick the bloom so I can get the most enjoyment out of it. I'll have to figure something out for photographing many more together but here is Black Dream, Curly Top and Creole Belle:

Also, I wanted to show you the purse that Donna made, she makes purses and sells them around town but when we seen this material she had to buy it, couldn't resist.

really Patrick...you can't post a bloom like that without telling us who she is...I'm thinking maybe Torch Song?

Donna is very talented.

Oh, thats really cool. My father, and basically my whole family work for Sikorsky Aircraft here in CT. That is why I ask. Do you do mostly aircraft? Or do you manufacture other things as well?
