I agree. I love tuberose as well and I used to have two of those plants. I gave them to my friend in Santa Barbara. I need to ask him how they are doing. They are from a tropical climate.

It has golden roses, pink roses, white roses on the one bush and I guess since her house/rose garden is on a hill the flowers don't quit blooming until around Dec 12th, the feast day of Our Lady of Guadalupe

I have a soft spot for Morning Glories. They cover a good part of my fence around the house. When I was fixing up my old place, I found an old door that at one time was the back door leading to my enclosed back porch. It needed some TLC- some wood filler, regluing the side panels using clamps, sanding & painting. It had a glass window about 2' square which I removed. I met two women at a juried craft fair who had a stained glass studio on the other side of town. I had them create a piece with Morning Glories to replace the opening, and it has become something I treasure.

My Mexican friend told me of them so I grew them for a while and then gave them to him and I will have to ask how they are doing. They smell divine. They look divine. They are divine. When are you moving?wink

I have always loved morning glories especially when they are the blue ones! I have not had success in growing in this house them but maybe someday elsewhere. My sister was able to get a very hardy plant and it has lasted years. If we have a mild winter- they can last through.

I want to try to get them. I love Blue flowers the best of all flowers. Anything blue will do.

Yes, indeed, flowers are remarkable. Praise the Lord! I do believe that glads are my favourites.
