                  I have two similiar "Summerwings" and "Boliviensis" but they are just coming back out of their tubers.. I got nothing from my "Santa Cruz" seeds.

                        I love Mock Orange, had one in Bucks.

                        Not much here as it is grey and breezy and cool but took this on trellis outside front door ... Mandevilla waking up and Salvia farinacea next to it ...

                        I am working hard to get things on the trellises put up last Summer.
