I have this one volunteering in one spot pretty heavily. They are pretty. Your picture with the light the way it is is quite nice. I know your sentiments about the excitement of just getting up and seeing what's blooming and how many. One year I had Heavenly Blue up the fire escape ladder of our daughter's room, it went clear up to the window (2 stories)and in the morning I'd come out and count blossoms. Felt like a little kid in a candy store.

I;ll bet that looked so kewl!!!!Heavenly Blues are muy #1 favorite. I can;t tell you how many I planted this year and they either died. or didn;t bloom. I have had maybe 5 blooms of them so far. thats it. Don;t understand it.
