Tess - Put on some gloves; I will put you to work helping to sring clean the yard/garden here.

Flowerdazed - I don't know the variety, but it is the invasive one. The plant was here when I moved in and grows to the top of the pine trees. I know where there is a white one hanging over someon's fence and I have my little pruning shears all sharpened...

carmelita, hope you get some of those, hey, bring your small shovel for rooted ones. lol I just read that it can take some 10 to 15 years before one sees blooms from wisteria seeds. Just too long for me.

Your plants are beautiful and I am envious of them being in bloom as I sit and still look at the snow - with more coming tomorrow -dang! I wish there was some way I could tell our state that it is supposed to be spring and the snow should go away all ready.

fearadyn - I put the photos up to cheer the snow bound members of this site.
Well, that and I can't use my left hand to garden for a week or two more.

flowerdazed - My mother is 97 1/2 years old; I figure I have a little time left on this earth, and even if God takes me home tomorrow, these are invasive plants that will live on long after I am gone.

Swampy - I lived the better part of my life (thus far) in Connecticut. Anytime you get tired of that New England weather, c'mon down to the South!!

Carmelita, when I take you up on that offer and just pop on down to GA and say ‘Surprise’, I just hope you have coffee in your hand to give me to drink while I eye all your beautiful plants and try to decide which ones I am going to steal away from you.

You cannot steal that which is given freely.
I propagate plants for the sole purpose of giving them away.

When you drop in, I'll make coffee just for you,
I'll have a vodkaaaaah...h...h....hot cocoa!

Hello, I just left a post for you on the Podium.
Welcome to the Swap.
Thanks for the compliment on the aloe; my mom in Florida gave me the original.
Do you need some aloe plants? Send a PM (personal message) if you need some.
This weekend I will be digging up the little ones and can send a few your way.
