Another intriguing glimpse of what looks like a spectacular garden.

Our M's can start with Magnolias.
The favourite would be 'Butterflies', quite a hardy yellow.

Malus species can be represented by the double flowering crabapple 'Brandywine'

The Muscari(aka Grape Hyacinths). This is a group of M. latifolium.

M is for

Misattribution or Moonflower, whichever you prefer. I think this came out of my cypress vine seed package, from a trade, and before I decided it must be a moonflower, I thought it would have been a Japanese morning glory.

and Menton tulip - only a couple more months and these will be up again!

Happy Valentines Day.
The soup looks great today, such nice pictures.

Morning glories, mock orange and marigolds
The black morning glory just grows like crazy but I have one heck of a time to get the blue one to grow.

Hi Gwen
What zone are you in, Gwen? Are you like me and always want what I
probably shouldn't? I am in Zone 5, S. Ontario and ever since a winter
spent in Alabama I really wanted one. The Magnolia I posted is said to
be Zone 5. I purchased it at our Canadian Tire store in 2005. It is now in it's
3rd winter. It is planted in a sheltered spot away from the worst winds. I
have high hopes that it is now established although, this winter, there have
been many extended periods of deep cold. So, I will just have to wait and see.

Here is a pic when I first planted it. It has grown quite a bit and had many blooms last spring.Sally
