your garden is just stunning! how many years have you been working on it? I bought a house with a barren landscape and it's taking so long for my shrubs and perennials to fill in and look lush like yours. I'm inspired by yours!

What a wonderful garden, flowers and plants. Love to come for a visit.
Your blog is on my LIFE FEED.
-Cheers.

I like the slide show idea. Just one photo doesn't give the full impact that wandering (and wondering) through your garden must give. But collectively, I feel like I had quite a walk through the garden.

Thanks to all for dropping by and for your kind words about this slideshow. It is easier to do it this way than posting 20 photos one-by-one.

Great photos Jon! What is that vine with the red flowers?

Jon said...

Phillip, the vine with the intense red large flowers is mandevilla 'Red Riding Hood". The other vine with the smaller flowers of a reddish-orange is ipomoea coccinea called "Star Glory" or "Orange Morning Glory" or "Scarlet Star Glory" or "Orange Noah". Seeds were sent to me as a gift and it is the most awful invasive plant I've ever encountered. I'm sorry I ever planted it as it so rampant and invasive....worse than kudzu.

Hi there!

I'm glad to see another Mississippi blog! I do a daily photo of the Jackson metro area. Stop by sometime if you're interested. :)

Unfortunately, I can't watch the videos here at work (firewall), but I'll take a look later tonight at home.

I have full-screen versions of these slideshows playing at the bottom of this page. Just scroll down or page down to see them if you would like. For some reason, the slideshow frames are squenched small and narrow at the top of this template/layout, but display fully OK at the bottom of the page. Enjoy...Jon on 8-19-08
