Jackie, you are welcome.

We are finally getting some RAIN,,, yes, well, it is cloudy and thundering.. and hopefully it won't pass us by.

Lillimercithat is a pretty neat nest... we have our barnswallows, they just finished with two clutches this year.. our problem now is going to be those Cowbirds, here's a little bird nest history.

They take advantage of the nest, they stay warm in the winter, then when the barnswallows come back, lay eggs, these darn Cowbirds lay their eggs in one of the other bird's nests (not just the barnswallows nests, but those are the one I see and observe) and have those other birds take care of the eggs, only to come back and get the baby when the eggs hatch. Isn't that so opportunistic, almost like humans. Then, they do it again with other birds.. How interesting.. But this is the other part, once the other birds find out that the babies are not theirs, they dump them out and then if the cowbird's mother doesn't hear them or come and get them, they die. So, they take a big chance when they become the parasitic bird that they are.

Here comes the rain...

A loved your story re the barn swallows and cow birds. We've had barn swallows
since we moved here in 02. They always nested on our porch under the eaves.
We have so many stray cats now that our swallows nest elsewhere. We miss
our up close view of the babies and watching their progress.

This Fuji no Monet is 4 inches across.

Fuji no monet... great Jackie.. it looks great. isn't it something in person? It really does look like a watercolor.

Just this morning the darned cowbird was in the nest already scouting it out. They do what they have to do to survive and keep their breed going. I don't know who came up with the term birdbrain, but some of the crows are the smartest birds around. The barnswallow nests are right in front of the window where my computer sits, sometimes I take pictures of them from inside the house.. they are only 5 feet away, and they sit on the ledge of the window about 3 ft away. They look like they are wearing black capes.

This is the last bloom from this vine Saz #2. It's the blue that was
making the wide white swatches, now almost white with blue trim,
very pretty. This bloom also a 4 inch bloom.

This is from Dany's Purple stripes. What color do you see cause my camera & computer are showing blue. It was a really pretty purple color!

The I. lind is a caudex I started from Emmas seed two years ago. Like the i. plantesis, it couldn't wait to get outside this summer. It is going crazy growing all over the place and I let it do that. I will have to cut it back and start over. As I do every winter with most of my non kansas plants. ugh. but worth it. so much of my stuff is growing thru the nieghbors yard. he just mowed it all down on his side. thats okay, it started from my side. good thing my precious babies are on the side where the plastic liner is.

Thank you so much. I can't wait to see your picture, James.
Jackie, this is a volunteer. The plants that grew on this fence last year were Roman Candy, SOH, Rebecca, Jaimie lynn, Ronnies Lav/Blue I purp, pink i. purp, messina creeper, setosa, lobata, cypress vine red, and that is it.
Really looks like the dark pink/red colour of the soh I had last year. The five seeds from 5 sources/ people I planted are all starting to bloom. The north fence was mine. Those are all blooming again except setosa. Next year there will be more corsses I hope from the ones that are new this year on the eastern section of the north fence. Down in the west end of that fence, I added a few different I purp seeds from the swap and a packet. The vine cuttings from the rambling big leafed morning glory are all rooted. the black five fingered i. batata that broke is also rooted, and the i. plantesis is nubbed. The stictocardia did not root. I have enough to try again. will try in a bag this time, instead the outside water tub.
Well this one was water logged.. sorry.

I trimmed back the messina creeper patch on the north fence, alot of volunteers of that one, and then found this that I planted from my own 2009 seeds of Miko No Mai..

Thanks to all!

Jackie - Interesting bloom you have in that first post. The cross apparently didn't come true or was crossed once again. Pretty color of blue though. Unusual. Again - I love your weird Sazanami!!!

Helena - Beautiful array of vines and stunning blooms! As always, so lovely to see!

Debra - Very lovely, rich colors on your blooms! Always a pleasure to see. :-) Am enjoying your seed soaking display! Cute idea! ;-) Love your Miko no Mai!!! Amazing how different everyone's Mikos look. All of them are superb!

Dany - The cross of Fuji Shibori x Ten Ten does not look like the typical Fuji Shibori even though it has many of it's characteristics. This one has smaller, very round, and sturdy blooms. Another thing that got my attention was it was growing straight UP! Usually the larger I. nil vines drape, this one does not! It wants to grow straight up like Ten Ten. It will be interesting to see what the seeds (F1) produce! But I think you misunderstood, this is Antoinette's cross not mine. Isn't it wonderful!? :-)

The humidity is horrible here right now even though the temps are in the low 90's. Feels much hotter.

Plum Shadows blooms that make this such an interesting and lovely vine!

I love that count dracula, Jackie I thought I had some, but didn't find any when I looked for them. Helena your blooms are always so pretty. I love the Kai no Kasumi (Not) the best of these last photos, the purple stars second.

While dead heading the south flower bed I found a little caudex mg plant that had somehow been thrown down there.
Tonight I chopped some of the sticto cardia and it is rooting. It was an arm about 5ft long that had no where to go. While doing that I found a moonvine in a hanging basket I am sending away to someone, so I took a cutting off of it, have no clue if it will take.

Emma, I can't wait to see your seeds this winter... Your blooms are always oh so pretty.
Becky, hot is good, humid is horrible. I wish I could blow it dry for you there.
I like that Plum Shadows.

Emma, I have been trying to tell everyone that that is a Roman Candy seed I collected from last year, and I am almost positive the coloring came from SOH. I planted it because I wanted to see it again. Last year it was light pink, same form and leaf, tho. I will save you some seeds. I LOVE that last photo of your bloom.
Here are the flowers from last year, that I saved seed from, and planted this year , these flowers last year, were growing with SOH. I am sure they don't cross with I. Purps, right? That was the only other type of MG growing on the north fence, besides the cypress vines , messina creeper and setosa. Am I right in thinking SOH is an I. Nil? or not.. I can't think of anything else.

Debra -
You are correct that your I. nil would not have crossed with your I. purpureas . . .
Yes, your MG could very well have crossed with SOH. If so, you have created a great MG. I will look forward to seeing more of those blooms, and Thanks so much for saving seeds for me. I would really like that.

The last photo is of Tsukiyono 'MoonBeams'

Here is another with a different pattern. The color is just awesome. A Dusky Grayish-Smoky Purple color.

Helenahkh, that grape purple is probably Atkasu no Murasaki. Does it have small/medium variegated leaves? The flower is large, about 4 inches.

I am utterly awe-struck. So many gorgeous blooms...

Yet one stands out from the rest in my mind: 'Blue Stardust' ( http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/fp.php?pid=8037228 )

I realize I'm fairly new to the forum and have only posted a few times and I've only been in touch with 5 or 6 of you regular posters... But, if there was someone out there that had 1 or 2 seeds they could spare of this extraordinary creation from Antoinette's hybridizing, I'd be very grateful and willing to trade for any thing(s) in my tradelist for a chance to grow this gem! :-)

Nick - The Blue Stardust won't be available for a trade until I get it stabilized. The seeds of the F1 are not producing consistently blue speckled blooms. Hopefully by the end of this year! :-) Thanks for the compliments on this beautiful blooming vine. :-)

Nick, I have a very few of Gourd's seeds - not the Stardust - so can't part with any of those (joints willing and the creek don't rise, I plan to grow them out this summer). And my supplies of other varieties are too low to part with, generally, right now, too.

But since you posted here, I can send you a couple of seeds each from what I suspect may have been among the parents of Stardust somewhere along the line and a few NOID blues so you can experiment with your own crosses this summer. Gardener2005 has done some original breeding on speckled crosses and her website includes a very good pictorial tutorial on how to control pollination for both crosses and selfing (seeds that will come true to parent) plus she will sell her seeds to anyone at reasonable prices.

So I have dmailed you a way to contact her and a couple of others I also think are very good. Does anyone know if it's okay to post links to MG seed sellers here?

Karen - That is nice of you to help Nick out! I had a first bloom on one of the Blue Stardust seeds (F3) and as I expecting ... it changed. The blooms were purple speckles on white petals, not the blue speckles on blue petals. I think this cross is going to be very hard to keep those traits going. They keep picking up recessive genes instead of coming true to the F1 vine. :-(

Also, I think it may be better to dmail folks the contact information for seed sellers. I think it might be frowned upon by admin to advertise seed sellers info on a thread here on DG. I don't think they are concerned about trades or freebie seeds, though.

To Becky and interested gardeners - Maybe a compromise would work. Evidently, there are several other forums on DG where admin allows sellers to be mentioned during discussion of a plant. Soooo - my interpretation would be to let everyone know the source on the forum, and then ask any interested party to dmail me for a link. Howzat? I think we've got some wiggle room here, if other forums' experiences are an example.

Also, regarding seeds and plants for sale by DG members, we can click on the Products and Sources tab at the top of any DG webpage, and then in the right-hand column, choose either the DG Marketplace or the Classifieds. A third option on DG is to look up a plant in PlantFiles, where interested DG members and vendors are listed on each plant's page.
-----------------------
Regarding those persnickety blues - humpfh. Maybe we haven't tried to stabilize blue speckles long enough - I seem to recall someone mentioning that stabilizing an MG cross could take as long as 7 years - even past that, I would keep trying - A's Stardust rates right among the top most gorgeous MGs, to me.

Karen - I suggest you contact DG admin to ask what the protocol is for the advertising of seed sellers on a public forum thread. It's not my rules, it's DG's rules. :-)

I am on F3 grow-outs of the blue speckles. The current bloom is from one vine. I have another vine I am waiting on to see what kind of blooms it produces. Hopefully, that one will continue the original gene. But I am not going to get excited about it until I see it! I will continue to grow out the seeds with high hopes that I get one that carries the desirable genes forward enough to be considered stable. It's work the effort, as I do agree with you that it is a gorgeous blooming vine. :-)
