Hi Buylady!! You ok too? Getting ready to put your babies outside? Yes, me too!

It is going to be 80 by Monday and then 60's. Just perfect for growing.

Next time use a paint brush, a tiny one and poke each flower. I am so proud of you and how nice your plants look. Don't forget to make sure you have no bugs, since this is the time of year they show up before you get them outside.

I am giving you a couple of pictures I took this past week and tonight of a couple of my favorite plants next to citrus! Ohhhh, the smell so good as I type to you!

Gardenia and Brunfelsia!

Hey! That gardenia can't be real. Is it plastic? Haven't you read the long, old post about the suicidal gardenia? :)

Mike grows plastic orchids, but not plastic gardenias! ;-)

I swear that I can smell that incredible scent every time I look at the pictures, Mike. Delicious!

Mike,

Which Brunfelsia is it? I have a Brunfelsia jamaicensis but yours looks a little different. Mine is easy care and smells terrific, a good plant.

Hi Buylady! 81?
I would of never guessed. Most people your age don't even know own a computer!
I am very proud of you on that one too. You even now how to post pictures. Yahoo. I am still trying to get my mother to get an e-mail and she is only in her low 60's..lol
Thank you for your concern. I appreciate it. Do you grow mushrooms to eat? I know many that do and swear they are very good for the body!
I hope you are ok too:-)

Hi Cath!

Let me go look at the label. I will be right back.&%*&^%$*&%&*&
Just wonderful. I can't find it. I do know it is not the 'lady of the night', but the other one. They didn't have any left when I ordered it because it was late summer, so they sent me this one. I am very happy they did! The whole greenhouse smells sweeter than candy.
This I can tell you. When I leave it alone in the greenhouse, it seems to LOVE the humidity so therefore holds on to the very white flowers a lot longer.
As soon as I bring it in the house for a night of enjoyment, by the next morning, the leaves have colored to an almost yellow and don't seem very happy. They age a lot quicker in the dry environment and the scent is less intense. I just LOVE this plant though and can not wait until the warm humid summer nights since it flowers intermittently all year.

I'll bet you love yours...:-)
