    Hi Theodoros,
    i am pleased to read that you are busy in the hotel,..some places are feeling the pinch as tourists are not visiting for various reasons,..but you still manage to keep your blooms healthy,..i love the peachy colour of that Thevetia,..and the Firecracker vine looks very interesting,..so does that lovely Devil's Claw,..now if only i could find some space in my garden,.. :) .

    Hi Theodoros,
    nice to see you have a break from work to visit us,..i always have to view your post several times,..the first to quickly see what wonders are blooming for you,..then again to take in each picture,..and a third time to really study each plant, :) .

    Some fantastic blooms posted,..i love that Hibiscus rosa sinensis,'Variegated',..what a bloom,..its stunning.
    Another Hibiscus you have is a beauty,..the Texas Star,..and a lovely big blue Thunbergia erecta,..when i first looked at your Nicotiana glauca i took it to be a Phygelius,'Candy Drops Cream',..which i have in my garden,..very similar flower.

    Dear, dear colleagues in the IT did some changes and we can't access some sites.

    Oh drool! They're such beauties, all of them, but I think I like the Euphorbia best. Or maybe the triple Datura. That hibiscus looks mouth-watering too... And the Penstemon's delightful. :D

    Theodorus,I just looked at your latest pics.As you know,so many places to look & read one can get way behind. Your expertise amazes me.I think you have a goal to raise every flower you find seeds for.I have had that variegated Hibiscus for 3 years & have yet to see a bloom!!!I'm taken with your penstemons.My friend buys every penstemon she finds.That Euphorbia Marginata is practically a weed here.They say once in never out.I happen to love it & let it self sow all over.

    Theodorus, My gosh, what a wonderful collection of beautiful blooms. Enjoyed looking very much! Your variegated Hibiscus caught my eye, as I found one to plant this spring. It has done pretty well despite the hot and dry conditions. I was surprised to see a bright red bloom on it recently when the temperatures were cooling off at night. Alas, it is now quite hot again, so no new flowers. Maybe soon when it cools down again, I hope!
