These pictures are of some Moonflower seeds I planted. Out of the eight seeds I planted I managed to get 4 to grow. In case anyone doesn't know Moonflowers are actually part of the Morning Glory family....except unlike Morning Glories these open at night. The flower is white and can be 6 inches in diameter. The first time I was given a plant by a friend I fell in love with them. I put plants on the deck and in the evening when I am enjoying the quiet, watching the stars or the moon, I can gaze also on the bright white flowers of this plant. They seem to reflect the light of the moon and sort of shimmer. This time I have enough to do a couple of large pots, one for the deck and one for the patio below.
Well off to visit you all now. Hope there is coffee on! Everybody have a wonderful day. God bless.

This will give me a good start, but I know that I need many more to make my yard be a place I want to spend my days and evenings enjoying.
The best thing about the whole day was I got to spend time with Harvey and our youngest son Kris....and when I got home our oldest son Kurt was phoning to wish me a Happy Mother's Day. What could be better....oh yeah....no cooking at all. Got to love days like that.
Well off to visit you all. Everyone have a wonderful evening. God bless.

Today was a ghostly gray day to wake up to. This picture was taken early this morning looking down into the valley from our front window.
This picture was taken looking down the road towards the main street leading from the south that runs past our little side street.
Wisps of fog deadened the sound of the vehicles passing by. Once the fog lifted I could once again hear the sounds of passing vehicles and people walking. It always amazes me how fog can deaden sound.
The grass is greening up, and Harvey and I are planning a trip into Regina to visit one of the larger greenhouses this Sunday. I told him it could be my Mother's Day gift......plant shopping.
Speaking of plants. Does anyone know anything at all about orchids? I have managed to keep this one alive for two years.
Lots of interesting things happening to it right now, I just don't know if any of these green off shoots are flower stalks! Help!!!!
Well off to visit everyone, it has been awhile. I hope everyone has a wonderful evening.
