Last fall I had the extreme pleasure of meeting @gingin and trading some plants with her. Thanks!!!

Currently, I'm really enjoying the violets! I didn't manage to get a pic when they were blooming, and was surprised they did! This is a newly planted spot last year to eliminate trying to mow the huge hump around the base of this tree, violets added in November. Some might consider these plants weeds, (with spiderwort Tradescantia and Oxalis crassipes) but they were 'free' in the grass, I think they're quite pretty, and will fill in thickly enough (with the help of ever-increasing shade) to keep the grass from growing on this hill - and be mowed sometimes after the spiderwort goes scraggly in the heat.

Plumeria cutting looks GREAT! Can't wait to repot this so it can get more sun. Hanging out with the Philodendron was only for squeezing plants into a small window space for winter. For now, I've finagled the pot so the Philo is mostly under the roof, with the Plumeria hanging out into the sun for much longer.

Do you have a success story to share? Pics?

Sounds great - as soon as we get moved - and heck yes I'm moving the violets - but nothing else around that tree.

I DID take pics of the blooms on 3/10. I'd already forgotten but found them looking for some other pic earlier - woohoo!

Thanks! I would love love love to visit you soon, after we get moved. I'd love more violets as long as you let me dig them. Just got finished digging up about half of the ones here. They look so cute under the tree, I left the ones on the 'front' side, that are visible from the kitchen window.

We're just moving about 1/2 mile away. I'm putting all of the plants I'm digging up in Mom's yard until I have some beds to plant in. She only lives about 2 miles away (which will be 1 1/2 - 25% closer - after we move.) We rent here & were renting a house we own to someone else. They moved out & we decided it would be easier to just move over there than try to go through the rigamarole of finding someone else to be a tenant.

Time to go re-plant this stuff! I think I'm about finished taking loads of plants over there. Time to get to secondary stuff now, like packing the stuff inside.
