I still have a few blooms. Just the normal purple, pinks and white. The blooms are getting smaller. Guess it is the cooler temps we had last week.
Sorry it is upside down. Posting from my phone.

Thanks Debra and Helena.
Debra, the lvs on that one weren't velvety but sure looked like it. Just nice veins running
thru out the lvs. I really enjoyed it, a gift from Helena. I'll send you a few of those sds Debra. It was very pretty and all the diff patterns made it special.

Helena, I really enjoyed pandy this summer but you know we had so much rain that it finally got rust. Just destroyed the lvs and finally took the whole vine. The rust got out of control
very fast so that it was too much to spray. Thank goodness my vine will return in the spring.

What we be doing if we don't have gardening, or Grandma'ing to do? TV? go out on the town? Honestly, I have always worked 9 to 14 hour days sometimes longer for 30 plus years of my almost 62 . These last 5 years I have been Gardening more than I ever had, and I think it is because I don't have young ones here, or a dog. My turtles are fun, but only when I can take them outside. The fish are funny when jumping for a dangling worm, but after the worm is gone, well, there is the rooting tub right next..and the vines are strategically placed by the wall lights and have things to crawl on.. here is this years vines so far..
some of my patio mix from 2012, the fish, the rooting tub, and the turtles are all in the first part of the basement to the East..All around them they have green to look at.. , and there are plants inside sitting up on things for them to hide under. I have dumped buckets of my compost soil mixed with top soil, roly polys, grubs, worms of all kinds, and crickets in mounds around the substrata. I saw a crushed turtle just like my Eastern Missouri Box Turltle, Gamera,
just about two weeks ago, on the hiway. I think it was trying to find softer ground. Sad.
Last pic is moving south on that wall, these are a mix of passion flowers, blackeyed susan vine, and i nil mix from 2011 I found. I plantesis is back in there somewhere. My sister would tell me it is too much.. I think growing morning glorys really helps keep my spirit up all winter.
Sorry to hog the thread..

Thanks you guys, I really wish it were still summer right now.. our low for tuesday is 12.

My sickie daughter Rose, is now back at home, and able to talk now, she is buying a new car tommorrow from my workplace, her other car was totaled. She has been texting menon stop about her decision, and now the main question is: Black or White.. *sigh* me and Joe both said we would pick white. The car she wants to get is a most sought after Honda Fit. We only have those two colors in, she wanted a pink one. LOL

My vines continue to twine downstairs, and I am happy. There was another bloom open like what I posted earlier, but once again missed a shot of it, and it had little blue specs with the faint stripes and pink center. Wish I knew what it was, but really, don't care. Sticto is budded up. Here is what it looked like last year, they crawl along the ceiling in that room with lions wool yarn strung up .

I was happy to get one rooted again from a cutting. I am getting better at it.

Linda, We know its a virus because the sds from these fancy lvd mg's, I had several, did not come true from seeds with the same variegation. I did forget to mention that the original vines that produced these
sds did not have anywhere close to that much variegation.

Jackie, are you going to grow out your virused Fuji no Sora to see what kind of leaves show up in the next generation? I'd be interested to see what happens. If my memory is working, I seem to recall that any number of things can cause a mutation in addition to virus, such as chemicals including pesticides, bacteria, and various kinds of radiation.

Going down into the 20s tonight, but still have buds on our autumn-blooming Camellia 'Snowflurry' - in bygone years, it has bloomed into December when temps rise, even though flowers that open during colder temps will freeze. The Winter series of Camellia are wonderful for our zone 7 and farther north to z5 for a few cultivars. A couple of local nurseries have been selling these half-price - worth looking into.

To Jackie and all - wishing you a happy and safe Thanksgiving.

Karen, Becky tested the sds that I harvested for Fuji no Sora. She did not get any variegation that was out of the norm for this vine. I'm horrible about leaving partial bags of my potting mix laying around and not closing up the bags. So could have picked up bacteria. Some of the varieg vines had almost solid white lvs, those didn't live long. Wish I had tried to root the no Sora , the lvs were amazing. Dont think it was from pesticide, I use so little of it

Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving. :-)

The gestation period for a Nigerian dwarf dairy goat is 145 to 153 days. I use to have a herd of 45 of them. Best farm animals in the world.

The blue star is interesting as I've got some seeds planted waiting on them to break the soil soon. I can't wait to see them bloom.

No, Dh wont let them come in. They pee on the floor. We pack their dog houses so full
of the straw wheat that theres hardly room for the dogs. They have to turn round and round till they pack it down some.. Ones a Husky so he doesn't
mind the cold.The other is a big Lab and he seems to weather it ok too. We have wind breaks
up to block the cold wind from swooping right in the dog houses.. I'm sure they will be fine. Much better than the poor dogs around here that their owners won't even put hay or blankets in their dog houses. We feed them 3 times a day when the bitter cold gets here. No wonder they;'re so fat.

good to hear. I use to feed more during winter months so my collies carried more weight, but they were fine in their kennels in KY, but when we moved to northern OH I wimped out and would bring all six inside the garage. The boys were crated for the peeing reason but the girls had raised beds off the floor with moving blankets and they would pair up. Never got cold enough in the garage for the water bucket water to freeze. DH called the garage the collie motel...

Jan, at my much larger home in Stonewall, we had a garage and put the dogs in there on bitter cold nites, heated it too. But here, we only have a carport.
We have a shed but not any warmer in there than their dog houses full of straw. If I could
figure out how to give them an electric blanket, like my outside cats, I would. They might chew the cord though.

My dogs are spoiled, live inside with their own couch, when it's cold they go out for their business and right back in. They do love the snow though! Chickens are fed and light is on the water feeder to keep it from freezing. The birds are going crazy eating the berries from the pear tree and holly tree. The pond is still flowing so fresh water is still ready for them, may do a small heater this year to keep it going.

If I get the Christmas stuff done I'm going to star a few MGs for the winter.

Jackie, is it still chilly where you are? bad joke, I know - hope you and your family and critters are all safe and warm.

We have a winter bird hotel - a yew hedge - when you walk down the path alongside it, especially at night, you can hear the flutter of bird wings following you as you pass. So I like to think the ones staying around are cosy right now, with snow still blanketing everything.

Haven't done any Christmas shopping, maybe this weekend.
Hope you and yours are staying warm. :-)

My family is scattered, so shopping for me consists of trying to find out what they would like and then ordering it over the internet to be sent directly to them. Traveling has gotten very difficult for me, so not sure what I'll be able to do along those lines.

Looks like 100% chance of snow, sleet & rain mixture tomorrow, so will prolly hunker down with a few projects at home. At night, we light the woodstove - wonderful for writing Christmas cards tomorrow night.

We lost our cat in November to inoperable cancer. Our vet helped us to keep him comfortable, and he showed no discomfort until his last day when we knew it was time to let him go. The house is so empty without him - so I especially enjoy hearing about everyone else's pet and critter anectdotes. How are yours doing?

I'm with Ronnie on starting an MG vine or two after Christmas, hoping to grow some of Dany's.

Karen, My Christmas shopping these days consists mostly of buying for my grand kids.
They're older so want electronics and more expensive items these days. I miss buying toys
for them to squeal over, so much simpler back then.
So sorry about losing your cat. I know how painful it is, the price we have to pay for having
loved them..

We had the most beautiful snow fall yesterday afternoon here and my friend and I had a nice chat and smoothed things out. Am very glad we did not have to go out in that, but instead could admire the magic of falling snow in a world where the land drops down toward the river so dramatically. Am having trouble with migraine so might be away for a while, but look forward to coming back and admiring everyone's fleurs.

Lovely flowers, I miss summer already :( nasty and cold here with snow and sleet!

I do a lot of shopping online too but still get to by toys! A few more to go and I'm done. Started my baking today 12 dozen pizzelles done. Butter cookies tomorrow.

Karen I didn't see your post but I can't imagine you would post anything offensive.

Ronnie, with me, sometimes it's "open chops and insert foot" - maybe it goes with the ADD territory. I am fortunate that my friend had a nice chat and are all right with each other.

Loved those morning glories, Patootie. Wish I could post mine here too, but don't know how to downsize those images, plus acquired some malware trying to do so with some free down-sizing software. Am having migraine issues right now, so that will have to go on hold a while.

Wishing us all good weather and safe traveling in weeks to come, until sprouts green up our gardens again. I'll be back in a while - getting overwhelmed with to-dos.

rid of the malware on my computer. Terrified of someone stealing my keystrokes. I do my

Loved all your summer blooms Jackie. I did start a few mg's baggie method a few days ago but still have to get them in seed starting soil hopefully today. Still be awhile before they grow and bloom though.

No sleet or snow here, rained a bit last night (evening) windy and cold this morning. Can't complain cuz it's nothing compared to some other parts of the country.

Thanks Helena. Glad you've started some sds too. Maybe we will get to see some winter blooms, something to look forward to from you and Ronnie and Karen. I would love to
have tested one of my Lite Blue Tie Dye seeds.

Lite blue TD this summer
1 more of this bloom looking like Helenas Watercolor somewhat but out of Becky's
supposed Pink Silk sds from a few yrs ago.
This bloom did not make a sd pod as I recall.

Jackie, I love that light blue color. It is gorgeous and that dark blue is beautiful too.

I'm afraid it just might take 6 to 8 weeks to get blooms from these seedlings. It will almost be spring for a bloom from them but I might have one or two other more older seedlings that might bloom. Anyway it will be nice to have mg's blooms again.

Jackie, this year I'm going to be growing other rare seeds other than morning glories, at least I want to try. I found some gorgeous ones.

Two days of heavy frost in the mornings but I still have tropical blooms close to the house.

And if these pictures came out sideways, I hate windows 8.
