I so love the Josephs Coat. What an awesome show. You can stop by and I'll try to fix you up with some fresh veggies of whatever I have.

My neighbor just ordered a Josephs coat. I had never seen it. It is a beauty. I will have to root a piece off of here...lol!

Carol, the roses are in bloom! How lovely! The seasonal transformation is so profound in the states. I miss that feeling. <3

You are so far ahead with your blossoms! My garden still looks like the remains of a nuclear fallout!
I have often read of bougainvillea, but never seen it - thanks for the photo!

Wow! You're so far ahead of us in the growing season down there, Carol! Your roses are especially lovely. Is "baby girl" your daughter or granddaughter? Enjoy her visit!

The Joseph's Coat is so unusual. Very pretty. Show us the Trumpet Vine when it takes over. Enjoy all the spring beauty. Lucky you for having all of those rose bushes!
