Faye had to be away for 4 hours at meetings on friday . This is an example of how thoughtful she is.
. She downloaded quite a swag of pics knowing that I would be kept interested for hours in adding names ,descritpions and tags to them all then placing them into their relevent folders ready to use.It worked I was still hard at it when she returned from her meetings.

Hoya carnosa variant"mauve ball" in bud.




In all its glory.




This taken in the shade but showing the beautiful leaves.





In this town this is the most common Hibiscus, always has flowers.




MA will recognise this Canna tropicana , the green one has gone to plant heaven and after 2 tries to get this plant to grow here I think its likes this spot. keeping fingers crossed it will like the wet if we ever get one;





Ruellia brittoniana .[from Gail]




Evolvulus pilosa .with bee in white sneekers.





Centradenia grandiflora [ ma ]





Jasminum sambac " grand duke of tuscany " dwarf shrub.high perfume.





Lysimachia "gold clusters"very good ground hugging plant .





Faye's Portulaca .. Ants's breakfast feast




This could make a good Quiz question for ID. ADENIUM FORMING SEED PODS





formed seed pods Adenium sp [Desert Rose ]





the flower close up.




Thats about enough for now I Reckon. That Adenium is my first seed pods , they come in pairs . I googled up planting adeniun seeds and some sits say EZI PEEZI while others go into a long process that the home gardener would not be bothered with. I AM NOT INTERESTED BUT IF ANYONE ELSE WOULD LIKE TO TRY , THERE ARE HUNDREDS OF SEEDS IN A PAIR OF PODS.let me know , there are more seed pods forming else where on this plant.

Absolutely Fantastic All Of Them Gwen..

I I love you the bee in white sneakers I have never seen white before.
And your Centradenia grandiflora is coming along fine..

I would like to try those seeds Please Gwen though I will just be popping them in to a pot with seed raising mix is it best to plant fresh as we are going away next Thursday so not much good sending them yet.. How far away do you think the next lot of seed will be ready for harvest

You should do a bit of googling there are different methods. they have pics on s0me sites and you need to wait till the pods burst open then plant I will get Faye to cover seed with pantyhose is case the seeds fall out . you are most welcome to try MA the seed that are on now I doubt will be ready soon [I GUESSING]anyway there are more comming along soon that may suit you holiday times better.Did you put a date on your return I will check .

THIS IS THE HARD WAY I RECKON

Sorry Gwen I have no idea when we will be back maybe two weeks from now cannot say for sure though..

Interesting link I could not get it up so chopped off the URL to the .com and copy and pasted it and its worked..

OK so I need a loose type of potting medium so seed raising mix is out.. Guess I can always break up some of those white balls I have here for packing..

I had no idea there were so many of those plants either I don't know much about them the bonsai ones look good though.
