Yum!!

Love the Cosmos pics!!

I see you grew Zinnia 'Envy', too...don't you love them!

I have never had luck germinating the Yellow Datura varieties....no problem with any of the others....yours is fabulous!

I hope your baby bunny isn't enjoying your garden too much...;o)

Also, do you know what variety the Aster is in this photo?:

Thanks guys-the aster is Aster matsumoto. And the baby bunnies (there were three) are, shall we say, thriving (which means they are enjoying my garden very much)! The great thing is, because I wsed so many things, it doesn't bother me quite as much when they nibble.

Your datura pictures are AWESOME! I think I may have to try growing them again next year. I sowed some indoors last year under lights and had 4 seedlings, but I guess I didn't let them get big enough before I planted them out because they just "disappeared". Who knows....maybe the bunnies.....I've got tons of them too!

Did you winter sow your datura? Any tips you can give me?

If you saved seed and want to trade, take a look at my trade page....I've got tons of seed.

Thanks vj!

Deb-

Actually, the datura seeds were planted right in the ground and then left alone. I didn't coddle them in the least bit. I have heard that they can resent transplanting, but am not sure if that is a rock-solid rule. Actually, I never watered mine or anything until I read here on GW that they really need food and regular watering. And here I was thinking they liked it dry lol

Bunnies don't usually eat them-nor deer-because of the fuzzy leaves (not to mention they are poisonous). Believe me, if bunnies had any leaning towards taking a bite, I would have found out. I don't even know how many little litters were born in our yard this year.

I will let you know when I start saving the seeds. I have to take a picture of the double purple datura seed pod-it looks like a purple alien brain lol

WOW! very nice!
I love the closeups, some with black backgrounds- they all are so vibrant- and, the closeups from the back of the bloom- very interesting

I love the Datura too

Keep up the good work, and post more anytime :))

I DID collect the seeds of the Aster-so if anyone wants to trade, email me please :)

Of course, I can't guarantee that it will grow true since it was planted along with all the other asters....
