Jackie, I am pretty sure that seed came from Helena. I can't remember the name just " large purple something" . I am terrible.

Thanks Jackie. Got a chance to put out some of my older mgs outside yesterday late afternoon. Rain came and gave them a good soaking and wash bugs off on some of them. Even though its kind of cool today I still got 3 blooms and 2 male hummers chasing each other. He looks kind of cold.

Little hummer does look cold. My hummers used to be able to find a way into the g house. Had
a hole in the plastic on the back side and they came in that way to stay warm. I wonder if I hang bird houses
if they would use them.

Thanks Linda and Jackie. We have been using the air conditioner the last couple of days when it feels muggy.

Jackie, hummers don't use bird houses. I do see them hide low in bushes close to the ground when it's too windy. You probably can get them to go inside with a feeder and leaving the door open. But there's a chance they can get trapped and worn out trying to find a way out. Heard many stories of them getting trapped in people garages.

Helena, I don;t want them to get trapped so maybe we will prop open the shed door. It stays open most of the
time anyway.
They arrive back so early that we always have a few cold nights left for them to get thru.

Make sure tou make our own sugar water, the red color in the store bought or home made is not good for them. 4 cups of water to 1 cup of sugar, heat water to dissolve sugar, cool and fill clean feeders.

Jackie, it's a beautiful sunny day here today. Would be a great day to work outside if it wasn't for those nasty hungry knats! I'd have to be covered in "skin so soft' to be outside. Maybe around noon they'll disappear.

Took a few pictures of the progress on my seedlings, also see the specks on Karens2005 speckled blush. This rose does have a nice scent, a new columbine I just bought last week. Yesterday I stopped at Lowes, they were loaded with new plants, Spring is here, can't believe I didn't buy any.

Thanks Jackie. I think peony's have really pretty flowers but I don't think they grow well down here. I don't think we have cold enough winters for them. Same for lilacs which I would love to grow but I do think there's one or 2 that are for this zone.

Got this gray into the ground yesterday. Same repeat blooms, a few of my salvias microphylla hot lips are starting to bloom too.

Well, a pleasant surprise this morning. A dark bloom from Blue Marble Not that slightly resembles the true BM. It's a large bloom, not perfect but there is hope of better ones to come. Another repeat pink bloom and SO, last bloom is blue with slight spokes and picotte, is that how to say it?

I am home now, thanks for the T's and P's. I had some beautiful blooms from Karen2005's blues mix, is that the karen you are talking about, Helena?
I always get blooms on my batatas, small or large, they love the full sun.

I guess I missed a huge ice storm, limbs down and trees covered with 1/4' of ice on our way home, thank goodness we weren't here to see it, Joe said the wrecks were everywhere. I hope you all missed the tornadic activity, all it did was rain and get cold in Rogers, Ar.

Sadly, the cancer has spread, and the past 6 weeks of chemo were for nothing. She cried of course, but thru her tears she told the dr that she will do ANYTHING to fight this stuff. So, she starts a two mix of chemo Monday backed with a shot for her bones and a shot for her blood. She got two blood transfusions in the past four weeks from the "gemzar" .
We got enough money together for a walker on ebay, now we are shooting for a porta potty for the bedroom.
I am hoping she will live until her 55th birthday, and being positve about it, I am planning a surprise birthday party for her there. She has NEVER had a surprise birthday party. any birthday party, actually. One can't live their life without at least one fun party, right?

Well, I guess I need to figure out how to get rid of some plants. Keep the pretty flowers posting. I need them..

Poor guy, I made him sweat, but he was happy to feed the turtles after he was done. I hope he will come back, he transplanted some violets and I am hoping he wants to see them leaf out. I taught him how to dig dandelions and chickweed. He did real good.

Great job on the grandkids Debra and Jackie. Mine like to earn money if it's easy enough.

Debra, you did a great job on your basement plants. Love your morning glories too.

This is a really nice bloom, I'd like to call it phantom. There's a lot more purple than it shows on the picture and the center is very bright pink.
If my phone picture is delivered to my email I'll be able to post the pic. later.

My one granddaughter Sophie (7) loves to help and has quite a bit of money saved. Luci who will be six in June is just starting to want to help, she doesn't last long though! They do both love to garden and are becoming a great help outside. Hopefully my GS Domenic will love it too! My oldest adopted GD Jos has move in with us, she needed a place and we have more room than my son with the little ones. Long story but her mom is a piece of crap and we needed to get Jos away from her. She has been in our life from the age of nine months. Weird having a teenager again but so worth it for her to be with us as long as she needs to be.

Love the blooms Debra, is it warming up for you yet? We're getting there but I'm not putting anything outside yet, did it too early last year and lost almost all of my coleus seedlings.

I started over 50 different varieties over the weekend with the baggie/filter method. Some from Dany, Jackie, Debra and Emma and a few of my own and some eBay buys. I still have a few more I want to do.
Hopefully I'll get them done and my back holds out to get them potted up!!

Absolutely gorgeous bloom Helena, I love it.

Wonderful that you've rescued your adopted g daughter Ronnie, I know she's happy to have a safe place to live there with her g parents. Glad you got to sow some mg sds Ronnie. I've not got to start any but a few of Danys.
Getting late for those of us who like to get a head start. :-)

That bloom is so exquisite, Helena, even Joe loves it. Please know how special you are, Ronnie, to show such compassion for your granddaughter. And the love you demonstrate will stay with her forever. I know, my grandma raised me when I was younger and when my mom was being a non mother, then she grew old and we became friends. Grandma sue and great aunt Reggie were the two most influential women in my life. I have so many cups of vines going, and tomatoes and peppers and well you know how I am.. lol

Thanks ladies. I have a couple more of the same repeat blooms with just a touch of difference. Blooms seem a bit lighter.

BMN, Youjiro, Blue, darker blue and Black King.

Linda, its a Camellia shrub. It's sometimes called a rich mans Rose. My lvs get freeze burn every winter, I should have planted it on the south side of the house.

Thanks Linda, Jackie and Debra. Love your Camelia and baby blue mg Jackie. Camelias are very popular down here too.

My youjiro had 2 very dark blooms today. Gray haze had a nice large bloom too. Jackie BMN has turned out pretty nice hopefully it'll start making some seeds. Untill now none of my vines have made any seeds, the warmer weather should change that. A red salvia from Vincent gardens (Fay ?)
not Yvonnes salvia. Last Gulf Coast Penstemon I started from seed last year.

Helena, beautiful youjiro's this morning. I like the Gray Haze too.
Pretty Salvia and Penstemon.
Been 80 or close here the last couple of days so things really taking off finally.
Grass needs mowing in a bad way.

Deb, it was over 80 here yesterday and humid. Almost that warm today. Sometimes we have a short spring and go right to hot summer temps. I'm enjoying the warmth since I've complained so about the cold. :-)

Sometimes it does get warm a little too fast. We've already been running the air conditioner even though it's not been too bad outside yet.

These are my blooms today, sorry for the repeats. Last is a peach salvia.

Thank you ladies. It rained during the night and it's still raining heavy-ly here for me to even check to see if there are any blooms that opened this am.
Already got wet just taking g-kids to school. I hope it stops soon, got cool too. Good day for napping.

I did see a bud or two on my newer vines yesterday.

The cold front came thru here yesterday Helena, but no tornadoes for us thank goodness.
30 degrees cooler here. I got soaked yesterday trying to do my chores, feeding all my outside animals etc.
At least the sun is shining here today but only 55 degrees. This is the month for most of our spring rains, hope it doesn't rot my pandy.

Debra, love your avatar and your pandy. You look very nice.

I would have had some nice blooms yesterday if it wasn't for the rain damaging them. Very cool this morning, but I will be potting up some of my mg's towards lunch.
I have a little female hummingbird in the backyard using all the flowers that are blooming. She's too fast for me to take her picture, I tried but gave up.

Hi all- I am new at this place- I stay mostly in the veggie forums! But this year I am growing some Morning Glories, and as always I have started the seeds earlier than I should have, and the seedlings are getting tall. They are sturdy because I have a little greenhouse and have been moving them in and out to get good light and fresh air. Our temps are still pretty low- down in the high 30s at night, so I don't dare plant them yet. When I do, can the long stems be buried or don't MGs like that? We get pretty windy here and I would hate to see them get broken from the wind. I am growing Heavenly Blue, Blue Tie Dye, Blues Brothers & Picotee Red.
