Good moring Darla glad to see you back. The game was fun. Sherry's daughter is a real pro but those things cost and don't think I will buy one. Hip dude Frank knew all about them . I know he would like to have one.

Darla-That's a great plant! I like to see it mixed with Margarita sweet potato vine or duranta.

This is a lovely flower...I was not familiar with it. I tend to be attracted to the blues, because they are harder to come by than the reds, yellows, oranges and pinks!
