awwww good eye candy... another sticto bloom will open soon.. brr it is kinda cool down here in the jungle tonight.. have a good Saturday, folks, it will be 51 and joe will bbq and i willl be off work for a change.
Beautiful blooms Jackie and Ronnie. I like them all.
It's not too bad here today, I'm sure it'll warm up. Took a picture of my seedlings to show how they are coming along. I have some with very dark stems, 2 with very nice dark specks. Probably it'll take 2 months to blooms.
Weather has been bad for most of the East Coast. Between the cold ice and snow we aren't off to a good start in the new year.
Christmas is put away now to begin dreaming of summer and morning glory blooms!
Thanks Ronnie, it is fun to think of summer and what mg's we will choose to grow this
season. But for today, all I can think of is the
Bitter cold on its way again. So tired of it already. We haven't had such a cold
winter like this one for many yrs.
Good evening everyone, I see some really special blooms here and have missed you all. I have been working so much just falling asleep as soon as I hit my chair. Still have a few blooms here and there down in the basement garden, the moonflower alba and the sticto and a few purps, but nothing like last winter or the winter before.. I hope we all have a wonderful new year with no pain or suffering for any of us.. Love you all.. keep posting!
love those Blues, Ronnie, I am sure I have some also somewhere .. so cold and windy, hope it turns warm soon, can't wait until I get to drive home in the daylight after work..
Jackie, it is always nice to see your blooms and everyone elses.. here are a few from december 2013 to now.. Spent some time re-doing stuff downstairs the other night, it felt good.
Thanks Jackie, Linda and Debra. Camera is on my cellphone, I'm pretty happy with it now that I had to learn a few tricks on my new computer too. My good pictures are on my old computer, did save them but not easy access to get them.
I need to check plants in my gh before they die. We are expecting ice and snow maybe by what the weather people were saying. Still a big question about that????? But since all school are closed it would be nice for the kids to see snow.
I did go and water my plants in the green house, and it is cold enough to be forming ice from the rain.
Two plants blooming in gh, peach coccinea picture is not good enough to post. A standing cypress growing nicely too.
Helena, I love the Abutilon, one of my all time favorites.
I've seeds started of Abutilon vitifolium if they haven't gone past their prime. I'm
also trying to germinate some Bird of Paradise sds. Next will be your Hibiscus
mutabilis, Confederate Rose, that I love. Before summer, I want to start Gourds Hibiscus and Ronnies Cannas.
Fibrous Begonia needing pruned. This is the one that's named Big,
that is cool your kids having a little fun in the ice and snow. Has been very very cold here, been wearing 5 shirts and thermals under lined pants. I am taking longer to get dressed than usual LoL
I have some baby abuitlons have no memory of which ones.
Yours look good, Helena. Jackie I love your begonia mine from my sister are barely hanging in there.
Been de bugging again, sheese! Found mealeys on the ginger, aphids on the althenara..
Nuns orchids are popping up
I agree, Helena that second pic is beautiful.
Shauna you are rocking having those blooms right now.. so happy for you. We had ice all over the place today, still do, but the roads are finally melting.. wish it would have been snow.
Helena, absolutely gorgeous blooms. The speckled one is a beauty. I think I have sds
Nice blooms Shauna.
Ronnie here is a pic, though not a good one, of your lovely blue blooms. I know its
one of these, 4 sds of one and 6 of the other. I'll send you half of the sds as you're
always very generous with your sds. :-)
Pretty blooms Debra! It's always nice to see how pretty blooms were growing years before!
I started more seeds yesterday. Decided to place tray with the nicked soaking seeds on top of a heating matt to keep the water warm. They look good, now will wrap each in moist paper towels and again place them inside plastic bag and on top of heating matt. I want nice roots before placing them in their cups with seed starter.
Sounds good, Helena, I am about to start my window sill bottles soon, and already have young plants going, still have the heating pad and trays to set up, which is wha I will be doing during football stuff.,
Beautiful, Tony. Happy February to us all. Jackie that is Cape Hunnysuckle. I bring it in and it blooms all winter down there. I have not tried a cutting yet. But I am going to. my lantana is waking up.
