Starting our regular #d threads.
Welcome Joparrot, glad to have you with us.
Love those blooms!
gosh, I have no clue what to tell you Jo, I do plant the long stemmed ones dep, tho, and have never noticed if they like it or not. I treat them a lot like tomatoes.
I keep missing the pretty blooms downstairs, will try and get a pic of one tommorrow.
Jackie I LOVE that blue and white up there.
I'm just gonna be brave and do it- plant the leggy ones deep, and if they don't make it, it's still early and I'll get more seeds! It won't be my first time to get stung when sowing too early.
Oh Jo, Please do not buy any more seds, I can send you a lot of seeds. dmail me your information to send to?
Jackie, love your blue bloom! Is it Diluted Fuji no Murasaki? That's a pretty pink with slight specks too.
Debra, hope your able to get some pics of your blooms.
Dany, so happy to see you here. Your future blooms look awesome. I did buy a few seeds from Azuremore by way of Japan.
Still pretty cold here in the mornings so my blooms have reacted by having smaller blooms. I was able to pot-up some of my seedlings yesterday but still have too many left to find bigger pots.
Here's my tie dye with awful leaves. I love the color of this rose. A hummingbird plant I started from cutting during winter just in case I lost the plant outside.
Dany, can't wait to see your blooms, you should be able to get them going pretty soon!
Helena, beautiful blooms, I like that orange rose too!
Thanks everyone. Dany, really nice to see you here. Its been a while.
Helena, that is indeed the mutant, diluted Fuji no Murasaki.
Dany I meant to send you a seed or two of this one. I haven't worked with this hybrid to try and stabilize, wouldn't even know how so every seed doesn't produce this bloom. Some come very close though. Eager to see your new blooms this summer, something to look forward to. :-)
Beautiful Tie Dye blooms Helena, one of my favorites. Love the peachy, orange Rose, a beauty. I like the hummer plant too.

I agree with everyone on the blooms, the rose and the wonderful return of Dany. I just got out of bed from a Migraine, headed back to bed, missed my pink/mauve splash bloom again.
patootie, what is that gorgeous dark blue/white bloom at the top of this page? I love it. I am just new to MG growing, and I'm amazed at all the beautiful colors. My favs are blues.
Thanks Jackie. I like your pretty BMN, I'm so glad I have one that is similar. Potted up a few more seedlings and trying to weed and get plants into the ground.
Helena, No telling what my new BMN blooms will look like this yr since they change every yr.
Will be looking forward to all the blooms your vine throws
I took pictures this morning with my phone and forwarded to my email but it takes so long to get there that I'm not sure it will.
I wanted to start more seeds of some of my favorites from last year but just have can't seem to get around to do it. Kind of lost the real desire to it.
But I am looking forward to see what blooms I get from my seedling maybe in a couple of weeks.
I lost my reply to this I sent yesterday evening or so I thought. Helena, looking forward to newer pics of'your BMN
when it blooms again. Seems like your blooms were darkening up which is what makes this one so striking.
My BMN might be different again this yr as its been the last 2 yrs. A lot of fun seeing what bloom it will make each yr.
An incredible bloom on BMN from last Sept.
Purple Tie Dye last Sept
PPV Plum Purple Velvet I think also from Sept
Thanks Linda and thanks to Melody for zapping my multiple posts. Still haven't figured out
why I couldn't see them.
Those were beautiful blooms Jackie, very special! My BMN was dark and had the white edge all around it. I'm going to resend the picture from my phone to see if it works so I can post it tomorrow. I had to run around with my older g-kids this morning so it was late when I took the pictures. I'm sure I'll get more blooms from BMN and the youjiro vines. I hope we keep getting those nice blooms this year too.
Would someone please point me to a good source for MG seeds? I am a beginner with MGs, and it seems seed racks don't have much choice. I am partial to blues, and love tie-dyes & picotees. Thanks
Ebay has a lot of nice ones that are nice priced!
Have any of you heard of this one?
3 seeds for $9.95. Stictocardia Macalusoi seeds African Morning Glory
I have the stictocardia breavenenis.. it is not cold hardy to this zone, so it blooms in winter in my basement.
I love the blues too, Jo. And the BMN is beautiful and Helena your blooms always blow me away. Jackie's blooms are always gorgeous. Heck, All the blooms posted are the best, I think. some from 2011 and 2012
Wow, beautiful blooms today! Love those geese too!
Beautiful, everyone! I can't wait for mine to grow and bloom. I once tried MGs in Louisiana, but it was so hot the flowers never stayed open long. Hopefully here in WA they will be showy.
Debra, you had lovely blooms in 2010,11,12. Its nice to get to see some of our blooms from those yrs as we
wait for the new seasons blooms. I like to see them and send a few of mine too. :-) Its going to be a while b4 I have new blooms.
Gorgeous blooms you got going on Helena. Love the BMN from the 2nd row of pics you sent.
Your Gray Hazes are impressive and I love the pink with missing label, beautiful color and the last bloom is a beauty too.
oh I love the last bloom the bestest Helena, and it looks so familiar, I think I had that one, wish I knew where it came from, maybe form you?
I have a mama robin on the front porch under the eaves nesting in the honeysuckle, she is so funny..
here are some outside shots of whats blooming for me right now..
forget me nots, tulips and creeping daisey , violets all around the yard beds..
Thank you ladies. Debra, I don't know about that last bloom on my previous post. It could have come from me since I have seedlings I'm growing this year from my blue and purple mixes and pink fuchsias too. I love your blooms, wildflowers are some of my favorites too.
Had more rain yesterday, a cold front with cool weather this morning, Still had some nice blooms.
Blue rayed from the dark blue
Beautiful blooms, love that orange rose, so pretty with the purple morning glory in the background!
Nice wildflowers Debra.
Love your blooms this morning Helena. All very pretty but the Blue Rayed is gorgeous.
