Helena, love all your chocolates but that solid chocolate is special, I hope you get a chance to mark it.Pretty speckled, purple star and Silver Shadows.

Helena, those blooms are beautiful. Love the baby turtle too.

Gautier, MS

Thanks Jackie and Linda. The solid chocolate is from old seeds that I had, the vine will make all those solid blooms and hopefully lots of seeds too.

Todays blooms.

Lovely blooms Helena. Pretty Flying Saucers, one of my all time favorites
We have good chances of rain everyday this coming week, wish I could send you some of it, we don;t need it here.

(Linda Kay) Del Rio, TX(Zone 9a)

Beautiful blooms Helena.

Jackie, I pray you are not in the flooded area. Stay safe.

Jacksonville, AR(Zone 7b)

Thanks for thinking of us Linda. We are not close to the Arkansas river so we won;t have the flooding problems, thank goodness.. Most of the flooding is happening'in towns/.communities alongside the river. Many have lost everything.
You know it's been so bad, I don;t know if or when the Ar farmers ever got to plant their crops
which they usually do around April 15th

Gautier, MS

Thanks Linda and Jackie. FS is a neat bloom. Hope we still get some rain soon.
You know the prices will go up when crops fail.

Got some other pretty blooms and no hummers. 2nd collage has repeat blooms except for the lavender that I can't remember it's name.

Beautiful colors in those plants. Hope you get hummingbirds soon.

Jacksonville, AR(Zone 7b)

Beautiful blooms in both those collages Helena.
My mg sds I started off in Burpees organic sds starter are all doing poorly. I have to restart them in my Fertilome potting mix.

Gautier, MS

Thanks Linda and Jackie. My hummers usually show up when it rains but right now we are having a dry spell.
Sorry to hear that your mgs are doing poorly. Hope your next ones improve.
I'm having my own issues with the bugs that love my mgs. Makes me not want to grow them, it does affect the blooms so a few pretty blooms then ugly leaves. I don't want to be spraying for bugs all the time.
Only blooms for today.

Thanks Helena. Bugs aren't too bad here yet but it won;t be long.
Beautiful FS bloom and I love that solid blue mg, very pretty.
I think if we had time to gently spray water on the leaves, the vines wouldn't
be so tempting to the spider mites.
1st pic is my seedling of stictocardia, thanks Debra
and a mallet leaved Begonia maybe Sinbad on the right
# 2 Sinbad and Medora to the right

Pretty blooms on your plumeria Jackie. Glad you have a stictocardia, I never had any luck growing it. Your other plants are neat too.

Jacksonville, AR(Zone 7b)

Thanks Helena,.I;ve had Debs sticto seeds for yrs and couldn;t get it to sprout
the 1st time I tried it. So I just kinda forgot about my sds for a few yrs. So glad it germinated last yr. I need to pot it up so I'll have a chance for blooms this summer

(Linda Kay) Del Rio, TX(Zone 9a)

Beautiful blooms ladies.

Jacksonville, AR(Zone 7b)

Thanks Linda.

Gautier, MS

Thanks Linda.
I hope sticto keeps growing and doing good for you Jackie.

Only a few nice blooms this morning. It feels like an oven outside, way too hot too soon.

Absolutely gorgeous blue blooms today Helena.
Only about 82 or so here so really nice. I dread the 90's and high humidity
but its coming.

(Linda Kay) Del Rio, TX(Zone 9a)

I love those blue blooms.

Gautier, MS

Thanks Jackie and Linda.
It;s been cloudy and we had a slight drizzle but we need a lot more rain. Hopefully it will still happen.
My only 2 nice blooms.

Helena, those are beautiful.

Jacksonville, AR(Zone 7b)

More lovely blues Helena. I wish my first sown mg's would set buds in a couple of weeks. Think I left them in the 8 oz cups too long.

Gautier, MS

Thanks Linda and Jackie. Only 3 blooms this morning. FS didn't open yet. Finally got some rain and more coming.
I did the same Jackie. Mgs in cups that need to go into bigger pots. All my vines have ugly leaves from the damage from the bugs.

Jacksonville, AR(Zone 7b)

Lovely blooms Helena. Is that a touch of purple on
your white bloom?
Hopefully the rain will wash off some of the bugs on your vines Helena.
Thats why all my other plant lvs look better, got a few rain showers. I try to
keep my mg vines out of the rain so they will get buggy soon.

(Linda Kay) Del Rio, TX(Zone 9a)

Beautiful blooms Helena.

Gautier, MS

Thanks Jackie and Linda. Yes, it has these lite lavender-purple tiny circles and specks. I forgot the name of it, will have to look it up later. I thought it was Yukon at first but then saw the lav purple on the blooms.
A few blooms today too. But I like the purple blooms with white sometimes lav specks.

All beautiful blooms today Helena. The purple bloom with white specks
is a beauty,

(Linda Kay) Del Rio, TX(Zone 9a)

Helena, those are so pretty. I love the speckled ones, but the bottom left is stunning.

Gautier, MS

Thanks Jackie and Linda. My vines this year aren't doing that great this year and it looks like I'll have just a few seed pods from some of them.

Jacksonville, AR(Zone 7b)

I think your blooms so far have been great Helena. My mg vines aren't looking'so
good as if they don;t like the dirt I used (the ones in the organic mix)
A shame since I don;t have time to restart all of them.
On a better note, I have 2 gingers setting buds, a curcuma and what I call the pine cone ginger

No pics today Jackie.
I'm already loosing a few vines Jackie and a few don't look good at all.
I'll be looking forward to your ginger blooms, the curcumaand the pine cone ginger too.

Jacksonville, AR(Zone 7b)

Helena, the Curcuma is the pretty one I;ve sent pics of 2 yrs in a row, very
happy with it. The Pine Cone ginger hasn't bloomed for me in yrs but this spring, it'got fed so I;m going to get blooms. I'm trying to do a little better with feeding this yr I wish I knew the secret to blooming my Plumeria's, a miracle I got 2 to bloom..
..

Gautier, MS

Jackie, I tried to google Curcuma but got some other spelling so not sure of the pics I saw. I had a Pine Cone ginger long time ago but not sure if I lost it. Plumerias are too hard for me to grow. My plants have to be tough b/c they can go neglected at times so I end up loosing them.
First decent bloom from this purple vine.

Helena, I will have a Curcuma bloom to show soon..
I lose a few plants every yr in the g house, usually because they need
larger pots and I just don't get it done.

Beautiful bloom today. I love the violet center of your purple bloom.

(Linda Kay) Del Rio, TX(Zone 9a)

That is a beautiful bloom Helena.

Gautier, MS

Thanks Jackie and Linda.
I hope to see your curcuma bloom Jackie.
I had a Lav. Saz bloom this morning, hope to get better blooms soon.

Its a gorgeous Lav Saz Helena. I hope mine is'just half that pretty, I'll be happy. :-)

(Linda Kay) Del Rio, TX(Zone 9a)

That is beautiful Helena. I love that color.
