I hope you had a good trip. We may need a full shot of your avatar, it looks really cool!

Googled 'tropical flowering vines' and started searching through what came up! Love the internet. It took me much longer to find the names of the fruits I tried down there!

I planted these Mr. Fokker anemone's last fall and have so very much enjoyed them this spring. Very much worth the effort of digging through the root system in an existing mature garden bed to get them in the ground. Fun how they close up at night too.
