What a pretty setting for the African Violet.
Thank you for doing thumbnails. For some reason GardenWeb is being slow even on high speed connection.

RE: Summer 05 photos

I used to do full sized photos because Picturetrail didn't have the thumbnail links and I was never able to get text links to work on this site.

The African Violet doesn't get as much sun there as it would probably like during the winter months, but all the south-facing windows are already taken by quite a few other plants. In the summer, it gets sunlight late in the afternoon and seems to like that. The whole plant tilts at an almost 45 degree angle towards where the sunlight comes in!

Hi! Nice pics. Tell your Mom I love her garden, so show us some more. I'm beginning to wonder if waht I thought was native milkweed is or not. Mine doesn't look like yours-Iy smell also, but had so many butterflies on it and grows everywhere-blooms late summer-Fall. I'll try to get a pic this year and see if Y'all can figure it out. Back to picture dreaming for me. Ginger
