Thanks Debra and Helena.
Very pretty blooms Helena. Love the yellow Hibiscus.
Nice blooms Linda, don't recognize the shrub, your pic too blurry. With tomato type sd pods, could be
a member of the nightshade family.
Small Lavender 'flowered. This is not the orig small lav flowered. This is sd from the one I grew 2 yrs ago, a complete surprise
Thanks Jackie and Linda.
Pretty blooms Linda, glad you found out the name of the neat vine.
Love all your blooms Jackie. Neat gray with the wide white edge. Your no Mai has been really nice, glad to see your Mauve Splash. I'm still waiting for my MS to bloom.
so happy to see flowers on my cucumber vine, growing a few vines for fall.
Helena, yes they could as far as I know. Both are purpureas.
I'll save Shibori sds for you. I'm sure its making pods.
I;m in Daves using Firefox so I have my thread trackers back.,
How nice it is. Thanks to Melody for suggesting it.
Eve4ryone has some beautys here.. Love the 7 rayed u showed Helena, and LK your blooms are pretty and glad you can get them before winter.
Jackie as always your blooms amaze me.
Dany and Tony always have the largest flowers, and such beauty in the colors.
Came home to a lot of pods of flowers I missed taking pics of, found worms in a alot of the dried pods of my i nils, they looked like little grubby maggot type worms, YUK
wild mg in buffalo..purps, from my seeds at SIL in buffalo, the package called it shiva, a weird cactus in MIL's house, some cool weeds in Buffalo.. of to work!
Oh, my carrion has not bloomed. but my plumeria finally did.
Glad your back Debra. We all missed you and your blooms.
Jackie, I'm enjoying your pretty blooms too.
I had this nice speckled bloom yesterday but couldn't download it until a few minutes ago. A salvia Mexicana for my hummers, good activity from them. I had a nice pink speckled bloom today but still waiting for it to download.
love your salvia, helena, or sage, I have that too, but it hasn't bloomed. everything is weird this year, my goji berry is just now blooming? The speckles are really pretty too.
Jackie, I don't know hwo you keep th names straight, but they are always a joy for me to see.
Love the pres bush..
1. have no clue now, tag is faded, any ideas? 2. again, no idea..3. darker than the pic shows..
messina creeper? and again, have no clue..
Thanks Helena and Debra.
Helena, your blue speckled is a beauty. Somewhere I have sds for that one.
Love your Salvia.
Debra, your 1st bloom looks somewhat like my Purple no Mai. You remember planting one?
#4 does look like messina creeper.
Edited to say that I can't tell if # 5 is the same as #1
so glad u have rain , Linda.. that is awsome, it rained here too last night, 3/4 inch yippee!! I now have three full rain barrells. The moonvine flowers are everywhere and open, along with the night blooming jessimine, 4 o clocks, moon flowers it is an awsome full moon to sit and smell.
Love that hummer shot, they are so cute. I found a speckled bloom as I was leaving for work, but didn't get to take a pic, Helena, I hope it is as pretty as yours is.
Jackie, that blue silk is gorgeous, I know I had some growing last month, have to find the tags and hope for some seeds there.. glad we take pictures, it helps me locate things at times when I go thru the pics. lots of purps.
Thanks everyone. Helena, I wish the male hummers weren't quite so territorial. Even
when we hide one feeder around the corner,
the older male tries to guard both of them.
Lovely blooms Debra. I really like the Carnival of Venice blooms. Pretty purps too
and showy little red trumpet blooms.
I hope I get a lot of Blue Silk seeds so I can share.
Thanks ladies. I have no blooms today. See buds on a few new vines but inch worms and spider mites are doing a number on the leaves. I almost feel like giving up. I sprayed them this morning until I ran out of the bug spray so I'll need to take the water hose and spray wash them all.
Pretty blooms Debra and Jackie. Glad your sharing your pics with us.
Thanks Helena and Debra.
Helena, the bugs are working a number on my lvs too. I should have kept up
with the systemic, it keeps on working long after the sprays have quit. I just get so
busy, I don't get out there and re-apply the systemic or spray every 2 weeks like I need to.
This bloom from Debra's patio mix. I wonder if it might be Berry Ice? I've got sds
of but haven't grown that one.Or maybe its Xiongs?? I love the color, thank you
Debra. Another shot, the bloom so big, it couldn't hold itself open.
beautiful! all of them. heck, i keep finding half brown seed pods with lil maggot type worms in my seed pods *whine* gee, looking back I see I did grow soe nice blooms this year, just not in quantity like I normally do, except the dang little orange noah it is everywhere.. anyhoo, Helena, you can have my carrion plant. My sister kept it alive somehow, I killed the one I split it off of.. very little water i think> ask Jackie .. I will send it to you.. Do you guys remember about three years ago when Emma was on a lot and I asked her to ID this plant? Well, it grows and grows, roots in the air, never blooms, the leaves look like a lil yellow hedercera but the leaves are huge, and here is what came out of the cutting pot this summer..I think it would be a batata of some sort at this rate..here are the leaves, the vine is thick and snaky, grows everywhere all over the place..anyway, it is making taters.. think I am gonna trash it..these are just two or three cuttings I made in the early spring from the momma plant.
I bet I picked three hunnerd orange noah seeds so far.. *sigh* BK from Helena
i am thinking this seed came from Dany..( picotee) , and this came from Jackie .
have no clue where the last one came from, hoping one of you will pipe up and holler I SENT IT..
bet the spotted ones out front where the picotee is now came from Dany, too..
I have to show you this little tree, Prita sent it to me about three years ago.. I think it makes a good bonsai, it was just a little twig back then..and the firespike I have had for three years finally bloomed, and the clerodendrum speciosa from a Florida friend is blooming.. and lets see, oh, here is a favorite moonvine .. lots of seed pods on this one.. hope the worms don't get them..
I love your blooms Debra. Your 3rd pic of mg blooms is shaped like a cute little Kikyo
Not sure about your other mg blooms but all are very pretty.,
Love your 1st plant on the 2nd row. Calliandra I think. One of my favorites.
I Like all your other blooms too, including the lovely moon flower.
Jackie I am sure I have gray fog here.. it is gray silvery blue? anyway, I know I planted it and have seen a bloom like yours it is so special.. Wish I could get true color on all my shots, they don't turn out alot like they look.
Debra, I love all your pretty blooms. Love those tropical plants too, calliandra, clerodendrum and firespike are great hummer plants. But you don't have to send me the carrion plant. I'm not good at growing cactus type plants, I will probably kill it too. I almost lost some of my tropical bc I too long to water them.
We had a little bit of rain but not really enough.
Surprise to find this pretty bloom today from Dany's # 4. The bloom is actually darker than it shows.
Thanks Debra and Helena.
Beautiful blue bloom Helena.
Debra, I've had the carrion plant for at least 8 to 10 yrs. I bought it, heavy giant pot and
all, from a local flea market. It might be if I transferred it to a plastic pot, it wouldn't be so prone to rot. I have a bad place on it now where the constant rain a month ago rotted one stem.
I only give it one or two drinks all winter in the greenhouse.
Gray Fog is a beauty. The one I'm growing this yr doesn't look like the ones I've grown in the past. They had lovely variegated lvs.
Unknown, trying to hide that I'm holding the bloom open. a 5 inch bloom
Lite blue TD beautiful all summer. I hope my potting mix didn;t alter the color of this bloom. Possibly a cross I suppose.
Begonia Juanita Jewell
Plum Purple Velvet aka PPV
Helena, is it a little more purple? If so, I am in love with it LOL. Oh gosh, so beautiful, Jackie.. lookie here is your unknown this one? oh no i see a star in yours, wonder if it a cross..off to work again ( these blooms were from last year..)
Ronnie, I am oh, so glad you posted, now I know where most of the ones I have that no one recognizes came from. Beautiful, Ronnie, love the 5th one first row. Love your camer, takes true colors.
Beautiful blooms from last yr Debra. Wish we knew the id of the 1st one, a beauty
indeed. My favorite is your lovely purple star on lavender, a real show off. I
wonder if I have sds of that one
Very pretty blooms Ronnie.
Linda, I don;t know if the potting mix/soil changes the bloom colors. I know mine
has changed the color of the lvs because apparently my potting mix picked up a virus of some kind. Created some drop dead gorgeous lvs for me a couple of yrs ago with very heavy variegation. The resulting sds did not come true.
Linda, not up early, just haven't gone to bed yet by 2 or 3 in the morning. This morning it
was 445 before I finally laid down. Takes me forever to unwind.
Thats a beauty Helena. Hope you get some sds.Maybe next yr after you grow out a sd or two.
Been raining all nite here and I failed to carry my vines to cover so no blooms for me.
Looks like it could rain all day and we need it in the worst way,
hope you get some of the rain we had last night, almost 4 inches in a few hours.
love the purple specs Helena. Gee, I am glad I am not the only one who stays up too late. The closer to winter the worst it gets for me. Have no clue as to why.
