Love all your blooms this morning Helena. The star shaped bloom is very nice and Danys #7 looking like the mutant is
very pretty. Is your # 3 bloom from my Plum Purple Velvet sds or something else? Nice Lav and I like
the purple bloom too, some beauties you're getting. :-)

From Karen/Blue Plum Gray Smoke, nice bloom thanks Karen.

Deb, no wonder with this horrible winter we had. I hope you get some blooms soon. The ones I have blooming
I started early in my bathroom under lites. Eat up with bugs cause the bugs found them early on. Now it looks like a
couple of them are going to croak. I have 50 more going so I cant worry about them. Too much going on here. :-)

Rained lightly as I was about to take pictures. Sorry for the repeats, some of the vines are taking a break.

Linda, are your vines close to blooming yet? Looking forward to your pictures and Debra's.

Hope you get more blooms too Jackie.

beautiful blue of the 2nd bloom.
Helena, some of my vines look awful but I'm happy with the ones coming up in my newly cleared fence area. Storms
went thru last nite hammering my baby mg's to the ground so they're covered with mud this am. Gonna try and
wash them off with my hand sprayer.

Hope you get your blooms soon Linda and Debra. Your blooms from last year are really nice Debra. I can't believe how awful the weather has been this year for some of the country. Our hurricane season starts soon, they have been reminding us of it every day now.

All my blooms are repeats today. I have another tray of new seedlings going but it'll be another 6 weeks at least for blooms.

Thanks Helena. All of my MG vines on the fence are under water, Since DGS cleared away all the
lvs stacked up by the fence, theres nothing to hold back the water now, flooding
over from the dog yard. Very disappointing. I'll try to plant in pots and just sit the pots there now.

I'm thankful that my family is safe though from the horrible tornado's. We are under the threat
of storms all day here, so not out of the woods yet. Sending prayers and

Beautiful blooms on the little red mg.

Look what I have to look forward to, finally a bud, (edited to change from bloom to bud) from one of my Plumeria trees. If I could remember to feed them
on a consistent basis, I would get steady blooms. This is marked white but one of the buds is now very pink, so hopeful
for a lovely pink bloom.

Beautiful blooms for a sad heart today. You guys know how to cheer me up. Sister went home with Hospice today. I am going down there wenesday to assess the situation. She was supposed to come here, but she changed her mind a month ago, so this will be a long journey for us both.. Dr gave us 2 weeks to two months. Knowing her, she will go the full 2 months, as she is only worried about her 18 yr old daughter who does not know what life is all about.
I hope my fig tree does something soon.

Thanks , all, she just called me and asked me if she can come back with me to stay a few days and see everyone here.. ( we are the only family she has besides her daughter) Of course I was like what about your needs? She has called the dr and he told her to come now while she feels like she can do it. So, off to get her tommorrow, stay overnight, hopefully get back here before I have to go to work on Saturday, then take her back next Saturday. ALL of us here will spend a lot of time, all my kids, my gs and all the in-laws and out laws she has been close with in my lil family. I am so excited, scared and pensive, but she assures me we will have only a number to call if needed for medical assitance here in Derby. Her Dr has put this together for her in a very huge snap.

I have blooms! These are both in the same pot marked Dany's #5, dark grey purple? Don't know why they are 2 different colors? But I will take any color they are! The purple one is a lot darker that what is showing.

Jo and Linda - It's nice to see your vines and flowers on their way.

JoParrott, you mentioned, "I guess my timing was off." - maybe not - being as you and I are both zone 7, mgs often wait until September to come into their main bloom since it's triggered by the successively declining hours from day to day at that time of the year.

---------------------------
Taters55/Linda, you asked "I have blooms! These are both in the same pot marked Dany's #5, dark grey purple? Don't know why they are 2 different colors?" Hope this answer might help:

The way a flower looks is determined by the genetic material in the plant cells' nucleus; in other words, genetic material determines appearance.

Sooo, if the bees get to the flower when it opens, as they collect pollen and carry it around from flower to flower, they are also transferring genetic material that is in the pollen from flower to flower.

This is called open pollination, and as a result, flowers that bloom from the resulting seed pods will often be different from the parent flowers (but not always).

Each seed will be unique.

However, if you want to produce seeds that are similar to the parent flower with similar color, pattern, etc., then you have to keep the bees out of the flowers, along with other possible vectors of transferred pollen like some insects, hummingbirds, etc. One way to do that is to put a sandwich baggy (dated) over the flower bud the day before when it looks far enough along that it will open the following morning. Come morning, some folks just rattle the baggy which sometimes can be enough to knock pollen off the stigma to the anthers. For a more complete explanation, see POLLINATION in this forum's sticky index; plant parts are diagrammed and explained under MORPHOLOGY.

Seeds from bagged seed pods will also be unique, but there's a good chance flowers from them will strongly resemble the parent.

----------------------------------
Hope I've helped more than confuse.

Helen and Linda, am enjoying your pics so much.

Karen

Nice blooms Linda.

Very pretty Helena. I love the 2nd bloom with the extra petal making it look like a double.
Of course I love your Blue on Blue Star and the Mauve Splash type.
I have your Blue Star up and China Doll, also the lovely Berlin Blue.
Could be July before I get more blooms. :-(

Karen has a lot of good information on morning glories. We had abusy day today.. sister picked a marker and added our moms name and it says loveing mother and loving daughter so now I have a marker with gma and gpa and great aunt effie.. mom and sherry together what a great idea, they gave sherry the extra plot, and we hadn't gotten anything for mom yet, so how perfect is that both of them on one marker.

I brought in some fresh snap peas and some flower blooms for sister to see, she can't get outside very much, she can barely walk. today on way home from cematery place we stopped by my sons place and he helped her get out and get comfy on the back deck where the honey suckle and morning glorys grow over there, and we sucked the honey out of the flower together, and we had a good time.
I re-arranged the bedroom again for her tonite, now we will see how easy it is for her to get to where she needs to go to thru thenight from the bed..

Helena, you can never see enough morning glorys and repeating is never boring..

Debra, glad your sister is comfortable, with her family and your flowers surrounding her.

Linda, you're welcome - you and/or anyone can dmail or ask here if you have any more questions

To all, love your flowers - they are so inspiring while we still fight last year's tsunami of weeds. Roses are past their prime for this year, but here's Rose Graham Thomas triumphing against shade/drought of white pines etc. in 2010

Beautiful blooms Debra. Love the unknown unusual bloom. Looks familiar to me.
Pretty Mallows and Bignonia too,
Crossvine perhaps?
Honeysuckle nectar, one of lifes best simple pleasures. Hope you and Sherry have a great
visit before you have to take her home.

Indica
My first Plumeria bloom to open in a long time. Beautiful pink
More buds should open soon.

Thanks everyone. Been raining since yesterday, my blooms were all damaged this morning so didn't even go outside till afternoon.

So glad you have your pretty blooms to enjoy Debra. I have a bignonia (last bloom) like yours that has been trying to take over the yard. I keep cutting it down and it keeps coming up with runners all over.

Love your Graham Thomas Rose Karen and your secret garden.

This bignonia is called :tangerine beauty: my trumpet vine is called something else i just can't remember rightnow, it is not the native trumpet vine that takes down the houses.. mine is big and red and i do have runners galore only because I haven't trimmed it yet this spring. Been other things occupying me this year.
I took a break and went out and planted one of each of Jackies seeds, in my Jackie Morning glory area out back.

Linda if it ever stops raining here (third day so far with heavy rain off & on) I'll look for some runners for you. You'll have to send me a d-mail with your addy though. You really want that vine???? I at first thought it would have nectar for the hummers but it only attracts bees and bumblebees. I do like the blooms.

Love your tangerine beauty Debra, pretty vivid color. Glad you started more mg seeds.

I rescued a mg vine from the rain so I could have a bloom this morning. One of Karens2005 crosses, the rain still got to it.
Two pictures of the same bloom, one without flash. Second picture with flash.

Thank you Jackie and Debra. Yes that was a very nice mg surprise to see.

Gorgeous blooms this morning Helena. Love the 2nd and 3rd pics. I like the pink running thru # 3 bloom.

Thanks Debra and Helena, The pink could be a night time pic so maybe that was a lavender that faded to pink. Could be
the reason I don't recognize it.
I've lost 2 mg vines on the fence, something got them. Also something tore up my big pot of mg's out front,
First time I've had that happen.

Thanks Linda After whatever rifled thru the big pot, I can't find my sds I planted there a few days ago.
Sme of Debras she had asked me to grow I think and maybe one or two Clitoria pea vines. It was so much
easier to plant a few sds in big pots instead of all the work of one sd per gallon container. Very
disappointed that I couldn't pull this off since it would have saved me a lot of work. :-(

Jackie, sometimes my garden gets roughed up that way, too. My #1 suspect is racoons. ...lots and lots of rain making us garden between the rain drops seems to make good racoon weather.

I think I'll incorporate more chicken wire into my mg plantings - thank you for the heads up.

Jackie, there are a million seeds out there, don't worry. Pop a few back in and put some rose or barberry bush clippings around the top of the pot, that is what works here for me..
Sister will be going back to Arkansas Friday nite with her daughter..
I know she will have a hard time adjusting to this.

Thanks everyone. Sorry to hear about your pots and mg plants Jackie. I had to fence off half of my backyard b/c of my g-son puppy. She did carry off a couple of my pots.

Here's a few blooms from today. First one is a deep color, darker than it shows. Purple speckled always has some damage on it. Blue silk is nice, 2 separate vines.

Karen, could be raccoons, I have plenty of them plus the new baby raccoons are tagging along with moma raccoon now., They are so cute, the little buggars. They might have been playing in the dirt. I used to use the chicken wire in my flower beds at my old home and it worked. I might try coffee grounds in the top of the pot as it fertilizes and animals don't like the smell. For now, I;ve got paper towels covering the top of the potting mix so whatever it was didn't bother them last night
Debra, I will just pop in a few more sds, still have time to get newly planted sds to bloom.

Beautiful blooms Helena, nice to see your Purple speckled. That one needs to be grown more.
