Finally, plumeria in bloom and DR starting!

meyermike_1micha(5)August 1, 2011

I thought I would show you I finally did it!

These are a couple of blooms I took today of my plumeria that Bill has sent me!

It is wasn't for all of you and Bills generosity, I would of never have been able to experience the delightful fragrance or colors of these plants.

I also received a few Adeniums from a most generous friend here and I think they are starting to bloom!

Notice the shape of them. To me they are cute.

One is the sister to the one Laura has posted. I think it's flashing its

I am so happy since I have not been that successful in the pest due to such a lack of hot sun and duration. I guess patience had paid off like you all said.

Thank you for all your suggestions, generosity, support, and ideas all!


These are the the plumeria from a kind Bill and following that will be all the DR from a very kind Laura:-)

Thank you everyone!

Hey Jen: It did take a lot of work. Here is the funny thing. I stuck them in among my vegetables and decided to ignore them and see what happens. It happened.
When I anxiously wait for something to happen, nothing

Dave: Thank you. I am not sure of the name of that one. Bill would know best. He gave them to me. I can't hobble over to read the name he wrote on the trunk. It smells so good.

Laura: Thank you thank you! You have certainly helped me with so much. I remembered everything I was told to do. I love both types of plants. Sometimes I wish the DR had a fragrance too.
I love the sis to your plant. I can't tell you how many come to visit and they smile looking at that
Sissy says hello and back at ya!
Thanks for the warm welcome back again. It is nice to know your missed!
I felt I did not have much to offer.

Hi Alex. I hope you have been well. Do you have a any pictures to look at? I think I will do a search later.

Have a great day all.

Hi mike! I have lots of pics of my other plants on the palm and cycad fourm, but since only my Divine is blooming, I havent gotten to posting any plumeria pics yet. I was wating for my No Id to start blooming before I posted pics, which means that I should have some pics up in just over a week of an update on all my plumerias! Until then, I do have a pic of my Divine from a week ago.

My desert rose has one bloom now, but the flower is a little bent up for some reason (I think the heavy rain we got was the problem), so Im going to wait for the other buds to open before I post a pic of it!
