Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day – June 2011

June 15, 2011

Lots of morning glories on the balcony:

'Star of Yelta'

'Light Blue Star'... this variety seems to be a little colourblind...

'Carnevale di Venezia' and volcanic sorrel... and I have no idea how that got back there, I planted 'Morning Star' in that corner, not 'Carnevale', but they're awesome, so that's fine.

 

And because they're so awesome, more 'Carnevale di Venezia' which shouldn't be growing in that corner at all.

OK, not so perfect-looking, but this is my first Ipomoea tricolor this year.

'Sunrise Serenade'

Oh yeah, and Thunbergias.

I bought this Thunbergia for the red flowers, but ... well... most aren't red. 😦

The bedroom windowsill, full of nasturtiums:

There’s also Oxalis triangularis in there, not blooming too much yet, and lots of O. tetraphylla in front of the kitchen window, but those flowers are only open while I’m at work – just as with the O. articulata on the balcony. But the other plant in the same bowl as the O. articulata is still blooming magnificently in the evenings – I totally love it! My favourite picture in this batch:

Thanks for Carol at May Dreams Gardens for hosting GBBD!

    Your morning glories are beautiful. I love to look at them, but they are so invasive here, I won’t grow them. Thanks for the peek. Your lobelia pic is amazing! Happy GBBD!

    Morning glories are so photogenic… your pictures are lovely! I love the composition of the lobelia and the thunbergias make me anxious to see mine come into bloom! Larry

    Happy GBBD.

      I’ve got a bit of a morning glory collection going on – sadly, some of the varieties kinda disappeared. And the others are mostly leaves, leaves, ridiculously big leaves, and just a few flowers (too much fertilizer – shouldn’t have put them in the veggie planters!)

    Hello, congratulations for your Garden!!!

    I would like to know if you are interested on trade some seeds. I have a lot of varieties of Ipomeas(Morning Glory) and I would like to get Thunbergia alata red seeds.

    Thank you very much 🙂

      Thanks for the offer – a few years ago I would have jumped on it, but I’m growing a lot less morning glories now, because I only have so much space and so much time, and I have to decide what to use it for. I can’t really add anything more at the moment. 😦
