Jackie, Love your blooms. The 2 pinks are gorgeous, even your China doll not is very nice. Corkscrew/snail and Stapelia are neat plants.

I took pictures in the morning but too busy to post until now.

Thanks Jackie. That bloom your asking about is what I thought was pink ice yesterday so now I'll have to see what kind of bloom it'll make again. Weird that it would change colors like that from one day to another.

Your blooms are all very pretty too. I like your Saz and no Mai and Purple Plum, all have nice color.

Purple Tie Dyes, I have 2 or 3 of this vine and this one makes the prettiest purple blooms.
All 3 of these vines read Blue Tie Dye. The only one that made blue blooms was the vine in the large tub.

Choc Silk, this vine came out of Sunrise Mxd and has not made even a single sd pod. I tried to pollinate'by hand yesterday.

Off to work in the ghouse with DH. Temps down to 40 night time by this weekend. We're having to replace

I took liberties with the title of your poem - would you let me know how I should title it the way you want?

Purple Tie Dye with No Mai. This is the prettiest Purple Tie Dye I've ever grown

No Mai

My Lantana showing in this one, I want DH to plant it next spring. I know the yellow Lantana is
hardy here if planted on the south side and has all summer to send roots deep.

I wandered outside to see what was left to worry about.. I have red, purple, pink, B& B salvias all blooming, even the white one is. can't wait to see who is still standing after a 29 degree night tonight. I used to have 6 different colors of lantanas.. now I am down to one..
they use the yellow lantanas in landscaping here, but they always leave them to freeze.. I think I might "rescue" a few yellows from a spot that will get neglected this year..( entrance easement island to a newer home development)
Drives me nuts to see the gal down the street leave her beautiful full coleus collections out in this cold every year.. she lets them go to seed and they come back true in each tub.. hmm, now there is a thought..
If that is Henka, then I am planting some, Helena and Jackie, cuz the blue and water color streaking and fading, is worth a try to me.
I love the Purple tye dye and no mai also. very electric colors! Look like they are neon lighted blooms..

I'm not sure if it's Henka but I'll be planting some from both seeds.

Lousy weather here today, only in the fifties and rainy. No frost forecast yet for awhile so I'm still good. I already was able to collect a few seeds, hoping to get more from the nicer ones. I'm sure I'll be cutting vines soon enough. I muss summer already :-(

Still a few left and the purps are going strong.

Course theres nothing you can do if the neighbors don't care about protecting it. I have a
neighbor that grows Brugs in the ground here. So anything is possible.
Love your blooms Helena and Ronnie, I only had a few this morning and no pretty blooms.

This one was a pleasant surprise for me came out of some seeds that were supposed to be white. I don't think I mixed anything up since I never had a white Nil or didn't buy or trade for anything this color. It was very generous with flowers and lots of seed pods. Cutting it first!

Helena, beautiful icy blue, I love it. Beautiful trio of colors this morning. Each one a beauty in its own right.
Your Roses are all special too. Wish I could grow them.

Your Purple is lovely Ronnie. Love surprises

I am so happy, I found a few sd pods on Blushing Bride and the no Sora Cross not. The no Sora cross not
blooms were huge, twice as big as the orig no Sora blooms. So I plan on growing a couple of those next yr. Also, I might turn up the missing cross
bloom. I've never been able to get the cross to show backup. :-(

A pretty Lav LYK
A 5 inch no Sora cross not
Plum Purple Velvet a favorite this yr for the color.

Thanks ladies. Glad you got some good rain Debra. I collect rain water too, helps a lot. Might be better for the plants too.

Ronnie your purples are gorgeous.

Jackie, glad you got some seeds from BB and no Sora cross not. I have enjoyed seeing your pretty blooms.

Look at my naval oranges, looking forward to when they get ripe.

Jackie, I too have been having pots-scattered-about-the-garden issues, maybe more scattered than you? Anyhoo, I have always washed & recycled my pots, but after almost 40 years of things progressively getting out of hand, I'm sorry to say that the quickest thing to do was to bag many of them up & have them hauled off with our collapsing shed. With pain from my scoliosis, time is a completely new dimension - much shorter and more scarce.

Anyhoo, if I could go back in time, I wonder how this garden art made from your pots would do along your fence line - http://www.kidsgardening.org/node/69278 - maybe these pot people could be spray painted? What a great public service this could be for convicted graffiti artists - just go around gardeners' yards & gussy up their pot people :) Your morning glories could grow all over them in summer, and then when frost takes the vines, out would emerge the pot people.

From a 2007 sowing of Ipomoea hederifolia v lutea, a vine volunteered in our garden this summer, along with a white Ipomoea quamoclit and I. purpurea Kniola's Black on arbors out back, so all was not lost in the morning glory department this year, plus Kokorota's I. albivenia from her seed will go into its 4th winter indoors here - no flowers yet, though. Due to the generosity of folks on this forum, I have wonderful seeds to sow next year and hope to have better pics to share then.

Have enjoyed everyone's pics so much. Thank you all.

Thanks everyone, yes my oranges are huge. My neighbor volunteered to cut 2 branches a couple of weeks ago so his orange tree and mine could get more sun.

I've enjoyed everyones pictures too.

Looking forward to next years sowing from you guys too. My mgs are still going to be blooming for awhile and if it's not too much repeats I'll keep posting.

Thanks everyone. I too have enjoyed all the beautiful blooms posted to our forum.
it was awesome and thanks to all
the members who shared.

Karen, did not realize you suffered with scoliosis, so does my daughter.
I love the pot people since the 1st time I saw them several yrs ago. I probably won't ever get those made.

So happy you have new vines blooming Helena. Your blooms are all gorgeous.
Love the speckled and the gorgeous blue and white. The pink, Henka type and Choc silk are lovely too.
We won;t get tired of them.

Looking good guys!
Karen I hope you are doing well ♥

I pulled just about all the vines I could today and got them inside in cups of water. Some still had a few blooms so I brought them in pot and all and am hoping for a few more flowers. Right now there are cups all over my window sill and pots in my little sun room off the kitchen. (have to remember to keep the gates up so the puppy doesn't get them) They will probably go in the cellar under lights unless I decide to run a small space heater out there. Not sure if it would be cost efficient or not come Jan. and Feb. I might ask my husband to cover the windows with plastic it may help.

First bloom was tagged as blue velvet but it's definitely purple from a few years back.

The other 2 pics are repeat blooms, hoping for crossing by bees.

Beautiful blooms Helena.

Thanks Helena. Your blooms are all gorgeous. Look how much your Blue Henka looks like
my Blue Marble not. Not saying they're the same but looks like they might share common genes
Do you think so too or is it my vivid imagination?
Your lovely Blue Velvet looks a lot like Hatsu Arashi
I need to enlarge your pic again but if I do, will delete all my post that I've typed so far. Wish that could be changed

Thanks Jackie. I thought so too that it could be Hatsu Arashi, it's just that it was from a baggie from years ago with that name on it.
It's really dark blue though.

Ronnie, I have not marked any of the Tie Dye Pink blooms. I will still be happy to send you a good
mixture from that pretty vine. I bet any of the sds have the capability of making that bloom, in the genes and
all that. :-)
Let me know if you want any new no Mai sds Debra.I see my Tai aki is making quite a few pods
and my Shishi botan too.
Here is one of my blooms from today Ronnie,.Its very close to the bloom you like. I did not get to hand pollinate so
don't know if it will make a pod. I'll mark this one and watch for a sd pod.

A Chocolate with a tiny bit of specks.

A funny tiny blue bloom with reverse tube. Most vines stayed outside overnight this cool morning.

Beautiful blooms Helena. That could be Blue Silk, it throws several different blooms. That soft color is very pretty. Love the specks in your Choc Silk and that tiny blue bloom reminds me of the little unknown blue I had blooming with no id.
Blushing Bride
Plum Purple Velvet a different look with that wide swatch of darker pink
Lav Saz
At least 2 diff Pink Tie Dye blooms everyday. I was so disappointed in this vine at first, now just look at it. I had to wait until it hit full stride to see all the pretty blooms it was hiding within.

Helena, gorgeous blooms. The Lav Chiffon is fantastic. Mine was darker at times too (when last I grew it)
It might have been the'cooler temps that caused it.
A nice Pink Hige
Pink silk decided to put in an appearance
These are consistently the prettiest Purple Tie dye blooms.

Pretty milky way and sunrise bloom Jackie. It rained here this morning and still having light showers. I was too busy running errands and dr. appt. for my grandson that I didn't even have time to look inside gh until now. Blooms outside got damaged from the rain and only one not so great bloom inside.
We did need the rain though so that good.
