Thanks, Helena.

I'm just gonna be brave and do it- plant the leggy ones deep, and if they don't make it, it's still early and I'll get more seeds! It won't be my first time to get stung when sowing too early.

Jackie, love your blue bloom! Is it Diluted Fuji no Murasaki? That's a pretty pink with slight specks too.

Debra, hope your able to get some pics of your blooms.

Dany, so happy to see you here. Your future blooms look awesome. I did buy a few seeds from Azuremore by way of Japan.

Still pretty cold here in the mornings so my blooms have reacted by having smaller blooms. I was able to pot-up some of my seedlings yesterday but still have too many left to find bigger pots.

Here's my tie dye with awful leaves. I love the color of this rose. A hummingbird plant I started from cutting during winter just in case I lost the plant outside.

Thanks everyone. Dany, really nice to see you here. Its been a while.
Helena, that is indeed the mutant, diluted Fuji no Murasaki.
Dany I meant to send you a seed or two of this one. I haven't worked with this hybrid to try and stabilize, wouldn't even know how so every seed doesn't produce this bloom. Some come very close though. Eager to see your new blooms this summer, something to look forward to. :-)

Beautiful Tie Dye blooms Helena, one of my favorites. Love the peachy, orange Rose, a beauty. I like the hummer plant too.

I took pictures this morning with my phone and forwarded to my email but it takes so long to get there that I'm not sure it will.

I wanted to start more seeds of some of my favorites from last year but just have can't seem to get around to do it. Kind of lost the real desire to it.
But I am looking forward to see what blooms I get from my seedling maybe in a couple of weeks.

when it blooms again. Seems like your blooms were darkening up which is what makes this one so striking.
My BMN might be different again this yr as its been the last 2 yrs. A lot of fun seeing what bloom it will make each yr.

An incredible bloom on BMN from last Sept.
Purple Tie Dye last Sept
PPV Plum Purple Velvet I think also from Sept

Those were beautiful blooms Jackie, very special! My BMN was dark and had the white edge all around it. I'm going to resend the picture from my phone to see if it works so I can post it tomorrow. I had to run around with my older g-kids this morning so it was late when I took the pictures. I'm sure I'll get more blooms from BMN and the youjiro vines. I hope we keep getting those nice blooms this year too.

I love the blues too, Jo. And the BMN is beautiful and Helena your blooms always blow me away. Jackie's blooms are always gorgeous. Heck, All the blooms posted are the best, I think. some from 2011 and 2012

That forth bloom is not a hije either, sorry that was 3 blooms close together that didn't quite open but made a neat look to it. The color was a light lavender.

see a resemblance in the pattern.

Thanks Jackie, the youjiro does make some neat patterns but BMN seems to have larger blooms. I think the pattern on BMN does seem to change a bit, the color seems to stay the same though. I'm not sure if the humidity has anything to do with those unusual "batlike patterns" on the blooms. It just makes it neat and interesting.

Thanks Tony, hope that one makes seeds. I'm hoping they all make seeds.

Thanks Linda and Jackie. Jackie that #2 is BMN on row 2. I have to go look at labels, I know I lost a few of them. But it's raining here now. I have a bunch of vines against the house to keep them from getting too much rain. It looks like one will be blooming tomorrow.

We had downpours of rain causing a lot of flooding starting yesterday evening. It's still raining here a bit this morning. Sorry that it's getting so cold for you Debra. I think it's over being too cold here.

Tony, I checked the label and have to give credit to that light blue bloom that you liked to Karen, Bluespiral. It's Silky Blue with the white center as in this first pic. Second bloom is from Dany's # 1 envy. The rest are repeat except for the chocolate.

I can't help it, I have a few more nice blooms to show. I placed all these inside of gh just so the blooms wouldn't be damaged by the rain. Last picture did get a slight damage probably from me moving it.

Linda and Jackie, hope your vines bloom soon too.

We're getting the rain and the cold too Deb and Helena. Our cold will be here tonight and the next few nights, record low temps for May. Only 57 tomorrow and Sat., gonna hurt after the 80"s.
Absolutely gorgeous blooms Helena. I thought the 1st bloom looked like Silky Blue but your bloom is much prettier
than the one I had. Pretty bloom from Danys sds and I love the Chocolate.
Love the blue with white eye and pink overlay, just beautiful (last one on first row)

I have 2 of your sds up Tony. One has green lvs and the other one has varieg. lvs. Not blooming yet.

Are your plants in containers to allow putting in GH? Do MGs do well in pots-if so, what is minimum size to do well?
(I guess I didn't do the quote correctly!)

Last year I used the long window boxes, they were about 6 inches deep. This year I have separate 2 quart pots for each type of seed. So far I have 10 planted, and working on about a dozen more! All along an ugly fence I try to cover with vines every year, in the yard.

I have 12 varieties of MG seeds soaking, and will get them in cups soon. Here is my house which faces east. I already have 3 trellises up, and plan to get more to put where I have the black lines. Do you think I will have a nice show this summer? Do all MGs climb vigorously?

Jo, I've had mg's bloom in tiny cups and some now are blooming in 32 oz foam cups. I also have some blooming in gallon pots, I think it's important too to feed them with Miracle Bloom Booster. They will grow and bloom if your weather gets warm enough, they have bloomed for me in cool weather too but try to give them morning sun.

Some of my blooms today.

Thank you Jackie, Linda, Debra and Ronnie. I think that white with blue specks is a ip purpurea from one of Emmas seed mixes. I'm going to tag it.
I was lazy yesterday and left all my mg's outside overnight knowing that it was going to get down to the mid forty's. So no blooms today, maybe I see one pink bud that will open if it warms up enough for it. I'll have to double check for blooms later, I don't always see all the first time. The vines all look ok though but it's cold here too.

Such beautiful blooms everyone !! Can't wait to see what mine do ! My morning glory "fixation" started with a small styrofoam cup decorated by my youngest son with a "heavenly blue" morning glory in it. They planted them in school and gave them to all the Moms for mothers day one year (about 5 years ago ) ! It grew wonderfully and I saved seeds from it and kept going from there !!

Dany, yes I believe that bloom is an ip purperea. It has heart shaped leaves. I took a picture of them though the leaves don't look good, I have to spray them. Q 1079 and Q1080 are awesome blooms from Kyushu U. Mine is a young vine and has more buds forming.

Lovely blooms this morning Helena. The soft pink is really nice.
A nil could have heart shaped lvs. I had one
of the gray mg's that is a nil and it had lovely heart shaped lvs. Can't think of its name right now. :-)
My pic of it is on a flash drive that the g kids have erased. Haven't been able to recover the pics so far.
If I get time, will go back to 08 and look for it on a thread.
In the meantime, Pres Bush from 09. I want to start a couple of these sds..

Thanks Jackie, love your Pres Bush bloom. Glad you have reminded me Jackie, I do remember having a large pink ip nil with heart shaped leaves.
I think you can tell by the seeds if they are purpureas if they point downwards? Maybe Dany can clarify that?

Yes it is a purpurea.
Nil leaves are rarely heart shaped and often hairy.

Helena, yes you can always tell Purpurea sds as they do point downward. I found a couple of my nils
with heart shaped lvs
The 1st one is a lovely Purple Blizzard that Emma had shared sds of.

Plum Shadows also with heart shaped lvs. Both of these vines are Ip nils

Thanks Dany and Jackie for the info and links. Those are pretty blooms with the heart shaped leaves Jackie. There is somewhere in our forum pictures of a light pink ip nil with heart shaped leaves.

It's cool and very windy here, actually the wind is howling. Had these close-up of small blooms today and they reacted to the cold.
