Beautiful photos! Thank you for sharing them with virtual passersby.

What is the name of the plant with the blue flowers (pictured at the top of this Feb 18th entry)? Years ago, I saw a vine of this species growing on a fence in south Texas. The homeowner was out in his garden at the time, and gave me permission to take some cuttings. The cuttings rooted, and I grew the vine for a couple of years but, sad to say, the vine was killed by frost. I would love to be able to buy another, and I'll bet I could find it for sale online, but I don't know what to search for.

Hi Barb, thank you for visiting and for the nice comment.

The plant in this photo is a Thunbergia Grandiflora aka Sky Vine. Mine is still quite small but I can still send you a few cuttings (although I hear is always best to take cuttings in Spring time early in the morning...who knows the science behind it...but for me it has worked best)...anyhow, my email is you want some cuttings just shoot me a line and we can arrange it.
