Clematis 'Sweet Autumn' and MG 'Pearly Gates'
Caryopteris, BES and Perilla
And last, the ever-blooming abutilon
Beautiful photos. The abutilon is spectacular.
My sweet autumn doesn't bloom until mid-September. With less rainfall this year it is shorter than usual. Hope it still blooms as love the aroma.
Thanks for sharing.
Lovely, as always! That abutilon is stunning!
A beauty. Fall is approaching, it seems.
Love the Caryopteris.
Gorgeous - what type of Abutilon is that? And how do you succeed in such wonderful blooms?
Glad you all enjoyed!
Anna - it's abutilon 'Crepe de Chine'; believe it's a dwarf variety. I really can't take too much credit for the blooms - all I do is water and feed it. This plant was WSed in 2006, and brought inside this past winter. Since it started blooming last year, it has not stopped - literally! Bloomed all winter inside and never skipped a beat when I took it back outside this spring. A bloom machine!
WOW! just beautiful, PV
I have had a terrible time with Yvonne's salvia- we have had such hot weather this year, and practically NO rain!
I will try again next year
I tried w/s sweet autumn too, with no success-did you w/s yours? will you save me some seed? Also, somewhere I think I saw you had the Blackberry Trifle balsam (?) would love to have a few seeds of it too! thanks!
Let's do a trade :))
You've got mail, Linda!
All of your plants look just wonderful, PV, it must truly be a pleasure to go out onto your balcony!
OT...I always have special thoughts of you on this particularly sad day. And I always remember how finding Winter Sowing got me through that first winter following the attacks. It helped to ease the deep sadness I was feeling. What a wonderful blessing it has been in my life. I missed it this past winter, but hopefully I can look forward to this coming winter. Send me an e-mail, and I'll catch you up on what's been going on with me.
pvick - you always have such healthy looking plants - I love your photos -
I just love looking at your pictures. I went back last night and looked at your album again. I especially love looking at Gracie and your other cats. I am also a cat lover. Elvis, is my constant companion. He is a Katrina victim and they thought he was about 2 yrs old when I adopted him 18 months ago. I don't know what I would do without him now.These are a couple of my favorite pictures. I don't think there is a surface in my house where he hasn't sat or slept. I have many more pictures in my photobucket album if you would like to look at them.
Sorry I got sidtracked. I would love to have a few seeds from your sweet autumn clementis, Blackberry Trifle balsam, and Yvonne's salvia if you have any to spare. I haven't got together my list of seeds yet, I am still trying to collect some--hope to have it done soon.
Jeane, you've got mail!
LOL! Do you really have that sweet autumn on an apt balcony! That's awsome! You go girl.
