1. I’m so glad that Abi’s feeling better, poor little sweetie! Nothing much happening in my garden yet….things are starting to green up but no leaves on the trees just yet. It’s going to be a cold rainy weekend except Sat for a bit so I’ll be out there as long as I can getting things done. Next week we jump into the 70’s so that should boost growth!

  2. After reading your post and seeing the photos, I am determined to have a passion flower vine; the nurseries did not have them on the last visit but promised they would have them soon.
    Your patio is looking so pretty.

    It is time in northeast Florida for me to pull out the pansies and snapdragons and replace these with summer flowers. The pansies and snapdragons have been beautiful but they are looking a bit past their prime now (they have about given all they can give). It has been in the 70’s and 80’s most days with very little rain. I have several containers of petunias but will have to move them to a partially shaded area before too long. A trip to the garden center will be on the agenda for next week for flats of annuals that can withstand the heat.

    Sounds like you have been reading some really good books.

  3. I’ve loved every shade of purple since I was a child so I love your color selection on your patio. I’m so glad little Abi is feeling better. Have a lovely weekend!

  4. My passion vine reseeds. Yours probably does too. . . .in someone’s garden down the road. ?

  5. I was ignorant about passion flowers/fruit until I went to Africa as a volunteer. I immediately fell in love with “passioni,” learning how to crack the fruits just so, hard enough to break the shell but not so hard as to make a mess. Kind of like opening a bottle of champagne without making bubbles.
    I recognize the purple flowers–we had some but I forgot the name. I am going crazy trying to learn about composting. And planting seeds in egg shells to get them started. We must wait for the “ice saints” before planting.
