    Very nice ones. I was gone since the 13th. A nice vacation in Sweden.
    But I am back!
    Yesterday I got to see my garden. Full of weeds but also full of new blooms!
    No pics. I was too busy weeding and planting a few things I brought from Sweden.
    But TEO, I saw my Tweedia is also blooming!
    Tomorrow I will hopefully get to take some pics.
    And maybe a link with the pics from my vacation?
    LOL

    Theo,I like the fact that you are not a plant snob. You grow many plants that I call exotic & still grow the more common things,cleome,rudbeckia& morning glories to mention a few.You are a true plant lover,as I am,too.

    You have an amazing collection, and it looks like you know exactly how to work with them all. Some I have luck with and some I'm still working on. I just acquired a bird of paradise and hope mine blooms soon. I love your house, I'll bet it's so relaxing on the porch surrounded by all those plants.

    HEHEHE... I saw my name up there!
    Thanks Teo. I hope it really works just fine. WOuld be good for me (new plant) and for you (happy you succeeded with this propagation).

    I am always amazed at how many pots you have everywhere!
    Still can't figure out how you can take care of so many.

    Wow. Cool. I also have an Erythrina. But I think it's too small to expect any blooms.
    I also got some H. coccineus I think. They are still in the pot I planted the seeds.
    With this drought,I am afraid to transplant anything in the garden right now.
