Not from my garden, but it's the best picture I made in a long time, so I'm going to show it. I love beeches!

Dominic-

What is the first plant you posted called?  The one that has the red bloom on it?  I have seen them around town (I'm up in Gainesville) and always wondered what they were.

I have never had luck with African Violets, though I've tried several times.  Yours seem very content.

A friend who also lives in Fl, but is very city oriented, didn't realize that we could grow African Violets here.  I have mine under lights and I use the wick system to keep them evenly watered.

Six years ago someone gave me this plant.  It has multiplied into several plants.  I planted it on the outside of my fence so that the dogs would not tangle wit it, for obvious reasons.  I have threatened to mow it down for six years and have never weeded around it, also for obvious reasons.  I glanced at it yesterday and caught it exposing itself.  I'm glad that I didn't get rid of it.

Dallas, thanks for the site of cacti, all so beautiful, and so many varieties! This diversity continues to amaze me. and in such hostile environments. I wonder if Mars ever had cactus plants? or Stromatolites?http://nai.arc.nasa.gov/students/this_month/page2.cfm

"Nice plant.  Wink wink"  That's hilarious.

Japanese maple also has those Mary Jane looking leaves. I bought a small one and one the way home I stopped for a drink at a drive thru, the clerk, a young man maybe 20 said nice plant. Wink wink. LOL

Angela,

Angela,  I bet it's the nitrogen, from soil bacteria breaking down milk protein.  But I haven't heard of that before.  Milk is also a good source of phosphorus, which is needed for flowers.   Just guessing.

I wonder what happens when you smoke swamp mallow.  Probably not very pleasant.

I planted an elderberry "Black Lace" last weekend.  I wondered if the sheriff who lives down the road will think it's a dark variety of marijuana - both that plant and the tomatoes are visible from the road.

Annie,

If I ever decide to grow tomato-like illegal plants, I'll have to remember to hang red Xmas balls on the plants.  So festive!  As it is, I'll stick with tomatoes.

I had a hankering to grow the more exotic type of poppies, Papaver somniferum - I think they're beautiful.   But -the legality is murky, and I don't want any problems with the long arm of the law. Gardening should be a respite, not a potential arrest.
