Bali... all your flowers are so beautiful! The lilacs are a favorite of mine (more wonderful childhood memories with them), and your phlox is just gorgeous!)

GT, wouldn't hens and chicks do well in one of your hyperturfa containers with large drain holes? Bali graciously sent me some, so I guess I'll be the guinea pig!! LOL!
And I agree with Lorax on it being a datura (unless you pointed the trumpets up for the picture)

MP....it actually grows up like a small size round shrub, very full and pretty leaves. Someone had mentioned maybe a type of honeysuckle bush? Here's a pic of the whole plant. It will have those beautiful yellow flowers all over it for most of the summer. It's just starting to do it's thing

oh gosh, a few 'hours' of not peeking in, and there are so many new mayflowes added

wonderful pictures, everyone!!

thanks SadieMae, the gray ghost is one of my favorites, this plant looks good where ever it grows

Mary, that Mock Orange must smell heavenly. Does it flower just once a year or all year round?

bali, your Clematis is stunning! Too hot for them in my zone, but we have a few native ones... one has buds, I'll post as soon as they pop

and Sunny, your Peonys, just to die for!!

thanks Lorax, I did not know that Dats open just at night, i must pay better attention to my flowers

MP, echeverias do much better in central and south FL than hen and chicks. Those do ok for a season but they seem to need the winter chill we just don't have But keep me updated how yours/bali's are doing

here's another Mayflower:

Beautiful orchid, GT...

One of these days I want to make some shallow hyperturfa pots (spelling) specifically from succulents. I'll make some small enough so Bali's hens and chicks can fit in my outside refrigerator for a bit!! LOL! I wonder how long they'd need to 'chill'? But this past winter, they probably would have done ok up your way, huh?

Your tropical ice does look like a frosty bar drink with all kinds of fruit colors! Yum!

SDG, thanks for the additional photo.... pretty plant.

Love the lilacs, B. My mom has some old lilac trees in the back that separate the property from the alley. They were way over my head when I was a kid. They've got to be at least 50 years old... they are just gorgeous in springtime!

Here is some type of aroid in bloom:



I bought a vintage cement planter a couple of weeks ago, and it had all this greenery. I haven't even gotten a chance to take it off the moving dolly, and it burst out in spathe blooms. It had been in full sun, and all I did was place it in the shade of the mango tree, and have been watering regularly.
