Thanks! I think water got into the bud causing some spotting. The ones I have growing indoors came out spotless and in perfect form today, but I got sidetracked and didn't get any photos. But the vines are covered in buds, so I'll have another opportunity soon. :)

I just had to cut down the passion vines from the black eyed susan downstairs, to ready them for the outside tommorrow. Joe bought me an arbor, so on it they will go. I went into the pink bedroom, and I had a cutting of a broken I.nil in a little round glass jar, it has rooted and has had a bloom, which I missed. *sniff sniff* Or, maybe it is about too? I moved it to the dining room where my desk is by th window. the bloom looks lavender..

Jackie - I would love to have weather in the 70's!!! LOL! It is supposed to be a tiny bit cooler tomorrow. I hope so! I want to get out into the yard and add some more plants to my pots and buckets. I have an assortment of caterpillars in cages right now. Some are for my class and some are for my garden. We are studying the lifecycle of the butterfly right now.

Debra - That is wonderful that you got a cutting to root!!! Sometimes I have luck doing that too! :-) I've gotten blooms and seeds from cuttings in a vase in water. Never got around to potting the cutting up! I was amazed to actually get seeds that way! LOL! Go figure!

My higes are still blooming their buds off right now. Poppies in the same container are done. I will be pulling them up. Here's a photo taken of the hige blooms earlier yesterday morning.

for its beauty and the sheer # of blooms.
Becky, those Higes are just the most beautiful of all the mg blooms. that's what I've about
decided, at least for me. I just wish the blooms were a little bigger. So fancy
though, that Ill take them just the way they are, lol
Hope you get a little break from the excessive temps. A shame that it's so hot there already.

The place I visited is like a botanical garden, but it is actually a local nursery. Next time I go there, I'm bringing my camera. You all would love some of the stuff they have there. I wish I was rich ... I'd make them an offer to buy that place!!! It has so many charming plant displays all around the entire nursery gardens. I gotta bring my camera next time! This place is awesome.

Jackie - My indica bloomed this morning and stopped me in my tracks. I always forget how beautiful the color is! And the size is large like an I. nil, too! Love this wild beauty! Will post a photo later. (I'm on break at work right now.)

Debra - That pale blue bloom is very nice! Almost looks sheer! Your electric bill isn't too bad for all the lights you have on inside in your basement! I thought it would be more than just $30 a month extra. Well worth it!!! :-)

Nick - All your blues are stunning! You've got yourself a nice collection of JMGs growing!

The I. indica has had a bloom each day for the past 2 days. There should be a bloom flush real soon! The blooms just blow me away! Large, perky, and very blue! I see why they sometimes call it Ocean Blue Morning Glory! I think the reason I love it so much is that the blooms stay open all day even in full sun! I wish all MGs did that!

I think I told y'all that my Yellow Chinese Evening Morning Glory died down to the top of the soil. I couldn't get it in before the freezing temps this past Winter. Well, it has since been putting on new leaves and vines. Over the weekend I noticed that it had a bloom on it! I was rather surprised to say the least! You can see the yellow bloom in the upper right hand of the pot.

The Sweet Potato Vine 'Margarita' that I had growing in the tipsy pot last year got killed by the freezing temps we had this winter. But the vine draped down onto the ground last year and apparently rooted in the dirt! So I didn't entirely lose it like I had thought. Yay!

Thank you Jackie and Debra!

Neither one of you have I. indica anymore? I think I "may" have found a seedling to cross mine with. I am hoping that the seedling is a true indica plant, too. If so, I hope to get some seeds from my vines. And if I do, I'll gladly share! ;-)

Jackie - The YCEG only had that one bloom! LOL! Stingy bloomer this year apparently. I am using Bloom Booster on it, so it might cough up some more blooms ... but I'm not holding my breath waiting for that to happen. That is a wild one, for sure! And very unpredictable when it comes to blooming. At least it's an aggressive growing vine! :-)

Y'all inspired me to take a "show photo" of 'Hatsu Arashi'. Don't ask me why the camera read the bloom color as light blue. They're as cobalt-blue as the pot in which they're planted. This particular container is usually situated in a large east-facing window in my living room. Seems to be growing fine with that amount of light... so far.

Are you asking about the ID of this one? http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/fp.php?pid=8501062

If so, I believe it is Kniola Black I. purpurea. It's a really dark color of bloom. It is a volunteer from last year. It doesn't look like a cross either. It really stands out against the white fencing. I may have seeds from it soon! LOL!

Thanks Becky. Yes that's the one. It's very pretty. I was almost thinking it was Grampa Ott's...
I planted some of the seeds you sent me. They are little little plants right now.. They will go
into ground soon.
Just the other day I was looking for the pandy's that Jackie sent me and I couldn't find them.
They should have sprouted by now. I have so many seedlings in plastic cups, veggies and
flowers. Maybe I just missed them. Luckily I have 2 backup seeds left.
I know I don't post that much here, but I do like too look.

I, too, have had some in my recent batch of sowed seeds that germinated several weeks later ... and out of 40 cups of seeds, I have about 11 cups of seeds that haven't even germinated yet! But every so often, another one will sprout. Mine are indoors under lights and I am wondering if heat is a major factor to get them to germinate. My house is air-conditioned. So ... have patience!

Glad to hear that some are still germinating for y'all! :-) :-) Thanks for letting me know and everyone else. Several people besides the two of you have also told me that some of the seeds I sent are slow to germinate. I don't have any really old seeds that I have sent out. Most seeds are newly collected and others might be a couple years old. MG seeds stay viable for a very long time. Years!!! Can't wait to see bloom photos! I am always wondering who got crosses! :-)

A couple from a mix from Karen/bluespiral

#1 - plum with "variegation"? "streaking"? not sure which term to use!

Thanks Becky... every morning is kinda like Christmas again! It's nice to have these surprises to look forward to! :)

I have at least 23 named cultivars/species I'm still waiting on to bloom. I haven't been this obsessed since I started collecting & hybridizing daylilies several year ago. lol!

gardenpom - Your blooms are delicious! I believe the split petal blooms are the I. nil cultivar 'Ishidatami'. They are all just beautiful and a delight to see! Thanks for sharing with us all! I especially love that last photo of blooms! Stunning!

Helena - Your lavender blooms is shimmery and enchanting! I do imagine there will be lots and lots more blooms from that vine and many others to follow very soon! I can't wait to see them all! I am looking forward to seeing all of yours and everyone else's MGs this season!

Nick - Nice dark color on your "Chickencoopdark" bloom! LOL about the name! I am sure there is a story there about that from Ronnie! lol

I get really busy this time of year! So much going on, so I may not post as much, but I will definitely be reading and enjoying everyone's blooms! Hopefully, in June I'll have more time to post and reply to dmails! I apologize for being slow to respond.

I haven't started anything outside yet. Just the usual suspects from last year that are my perennials. This is an Alamo Vine bloom. It's been blooming almost daily. The vine is climbing up the Shepherd's hook that my hummingbird feeder hangs from. It's in a small pot and seems quite happy there!

I set up a few trellises and planted most of what I had left of seeds given to me by wonderful members here, so each morning I am anxious to see what new beauties will be open. Some of these are repeats, but I should be geting some more first timers soon. This is a squarish Heavenly Blue.

Trish, we have been hit hard with the rain. My poor horses having to swim for it.
We had opened up part of our sons property to let the horses graze there and it's
great, sits higher than our acreage.
Last Sat they said 5 inches of rain by Tues, we had 5 inches or more by Sunday morning, 3 more inches by Sunday night. Just incredible, kids out of school since 1130 yesterday and out today due to the flooding in parts of Pulaski co and the buses
couldn't get thru.
I hope to plant a few in the ground too when it dries up some. At least it's still early
here and we have plenty of time.
Can't wait to see your blooms Trish. Hope you will share pics when they bloom.

Silky Blue last yr
