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...

I just posted more co-ops in our Bargains thread. Is anyone waiting for Tuberoses to bloom?

J. do your yellow Datura stay yellow or are they like mine open yellow and turn white in their 2nd or 3rd day? And how long do the flowers last for you?

Sheryl, I was reading your blog. I think that one purple flower that you thought might be a lobelia could possibly be a dwarf form of delphinium. Your blog is great!! Thumbs up

That leadwort is pretty Sally. Your brug is looking great. Thumbs up

Yesterday I saw a Sweet Autumn Clematis growing on a fence in full bloom. I was out driving at dusk and saw an entire embankment full of Moon vine in full bloom. I tried to get a photo of it, but traffic would not allow it.

I think J may have gone away for the weekend.

I might just have to drive over there tomorrow, park and walk to get a whiff! It's a very old house that sits close to a busy road with no sidewalks. It is also a very attractive planting. Now that I think about it, they have been there for a number of years. Do they self seed a lot?

Bob, Those are both really pretty vines. I love the airy quality of that Lobata Vine. I would post that pretty purple vine in our Plant ID thread. A lot of our members are away right now, but I'm sure someone will ID it next week.

I think that it may possibly be the "Cup and Saucer" vine. I had germinated some of those from seed last year but they never got big enough to put out into the garden. That heat and drought last year were terrible.

Maybe a huge planting of moonflower will reseed. I never had enough bloom to find out, they often bloomed so late that the pods didn't look mature enough to harvest. Does the slope face south? I think it'd have to, to get moonflower to reseed. WAIT- moonflower is only open late evening to early morning. What time of day did you see it?

I thought Cup and saucer also. Years of browsing seed catalogs has put a few weird associations in my head.

West maybe works. Must be moonflower. It would smell divine! So do those fragrant glads- Acidanthera- and they're pretty cheap.

I had planted some of them a few years back. They were quite nice, but only lasted the season.

My dad loves nasturtiums but I and he have had problems getting them to grow. Confused
