I thought I'd start a thread for everyone to add photos if you wanna. I still have flowers being made on my indoors-grown plants. Enjoy!

Making me impatient! Mine that are in the ground are only about 6 inches high! They should start to shoot up fast since the ground temperature is going up quickly.

Thanks, Anne, I am looking forward to seeing your MGs and everyone elses MGs.

My split petal Ipomoea purpurea made the transition outdoors ok. It's making more flowers and leaves now.

I have start and transplanted 3 moon vines and 3 double purple with white trim MG's. 1 of each up front and in back. The remaining 2 are staying inside for further 'training' and enjoyment. My datura seeds arent sprouting yet, but the seed could be late starters. Thats okay, because I still have a mother plant whom is starting to bust out.

My moonvine that I going out front, but its too saturated, so I bring her in at night. The other two seedlings are regular red MG'S.

This is my makeshift flower bed. Used leftover grass patches with some dirt. I figured MV's and MG's like any soil so it was worth a try to make a raised bed.

I can't wait to see how your garden progresses, Imaeus. Will you eventually move your indoors plants outdoors?

Your garden looks good Imaeus Thumbs up

Beautiful flowers Joseph and Alana!
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

Thanks, Ronnie. I got the Calystegia roots planted and have them outside. Saying prayers for new growth.

Alana, that is a beauty, I need to grow one sometime soon. Hahaha I say that about everything, but it's a true statement.

Here's another set of photos of the deep blue and its variegated yellow leaf. It's a nice color combination, yellow + blue.

Here's an Ipomoea purpurea strain I've been growing under lights in the basement over the winter. It began to make flowers again after a rest period. It is infested with mites, so I must cut it back to try to control the pest. I'll try to transfer it outdoors tomorrow. I have already transferred my caudiciform morning glories outside and I am anxious to see what their flowers look like - they are all grown from seed and the plants appear to be flowering size after 4 or 5 years.

I love the leaves, but I appreciate that icy pastel color, too. Hm. I have a few seeds somewhere that I think I want to sow now.
Very pretty, Ronnie!

That's a beauty, Ronnie!

Have you sensed the fragrance of the flowers?

Here is one from this morning, I like the blizzard pattern between the bluish rays.

Ahh I remember now, Emma sent me some seeds she called it Above the Clouds, Unjou. Not sure how it got mixed in with the blues .. I have a second plant from the same batch of seeds ... that one may be blue.
