First I hope the little one has a great trip. Did you send a note for the pres? LOL

I hope my seed snapdragons will be as pretty as yours. Your money plant is beautiful and so is the verbena. Love the color.

Can't wait to hear the news. Have a good day Darla.

Pretty, pretty! I bet your daughter will have a lot of fun and learn a lot. We lived there for about 6 years...lots to do and see! Your garden looks wonderful.

How exciting for your daughter. Hope she has a wonderful time.

Your snapdragons are very pretty. I wish snapdragons did well here. I used to try a few every year and finally gave up on them.

The seed snapdragons are so beautiful! I've never grown them from seed - usually I purchase them in six packs. I'll have to try seeds for next year.

What fun to get a trip to Washington D.C. I'm sure she'll have an amazing time.

Hope your daughter has a safe and fun trip! How did you miss out of this one?
That's a gorgeous pink snapdragon! All of your flowers are looking so good and healthy.
Don't keep us waiting too long to hear the news!

Hi Darla. I hope your daughter has a wonderful time in Washington D.C.
Your candytuft is so pretty I cannot wait to see if my babies bloom.I planted some from seed along my walkway.
That frog is the cutest thing LOL! I am so jealous of the wisteria though I have to tell you. It is just beautiful!

Wow you have great luck with seed started plants. I love that white blooming Moneyplant. Mine has purple flowers. :)

Carla said...

LOVE your babies!! All your photos are marvelous, what ever it is you are up too...have fun:).

I wish Snapdragons would look like that here. They always look like lone soldiers, never nice big clumps of flowers.
I bet your daughter will have fun. Mine got to go last summer during their heatwave, but still loved it.

I bet it will be something fun and a good thing.

Wonderful ...
Was that you in your green gardening suit??

Jean said...

You have such great luck with seeds! All your plants look great! I love the wisteria but mine has never bloomed. Glad your money plant is blooming. Mine hasn't started yet. Happy Bloomin' Tuesday! Jean

Ooh Darla Dear, Love your new blog-do! Usually I have trouble with dark backgrounds but you've got a layout that is somehow easier on the eyes.

Gorgeous blooms, despite your heat.

Skeeter said...

Great job on getting from seeds to blooms! Your daughter will have so much fun on this trip. Too bad mommy could not go along to chaperone...

Today I am thankful for the wonderful technology within our medical system...

Oh, and me likes good news :-)

Leedra said...

That wisteria is gorgeous. Can tell it didn't 'come from the farm', as all mine did. I really like that color change on it.

L. D. Burgus said...

Your flowers look so wonderful. I really like that frog too. It is nice to have things coming back from seed. I can grow snapdragons here because they can tolerate the heat.

Alea said...

The wisteria is so pretty! I don't think it does well here, but I am going to look into it.

I also love the baby birds in the nest in your header.

Suzanne said...

Just beautiful! I love your snapdragon. What a beautiful color!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Beautiful Darla---all of them. I'm partial to the Candy Tuft and Snapdragons, but they all are gorgeous.
Hugs,
Betsy

Susie said...

Everyone is coming into the nursery asking for snapdragons. We only sell them in the fall. I guess they could grow some from seed like you did.

Dar said...

Your plants sure are pretty. I have never seen a Money Plant before. Hmmm
So happy for your daughter. What an awesome experience for her. She will remember it always.

Deb said...

I love growing plants from seed...that's why I was so thrilled when Jean sent me money plant seeds. Your money plant is looking very nice. I have tried growing snapdragons, but for some reason I don't have a green thumb with them! I've enjoyed my visit here--everything is beautiful!

Julie said...

Hope your daughter has fun in Washington DC!!!

Your garden flowers look great! It's nice you told which were from seed...I enjoy seeing that for sure! My grandsons zinnias are growing, but no flowers yet...just waiting and waiting...

Darla, is that Wisteria really that deep shade of purple? No matter, it's still gorgeous.

Beautiful photos Darla. Love the colours.
