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

+1 - I love seeing full-size shots of everyone's avatars!

Here is the flower that made me think of Wisteria when I was in Panama. It is a vine like Wisteria and hangs through the trellis. I have NO idea what it is called!

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!

My avatar is a very special bouquet of flowers. Strawberries dipped in chocolate and white bark. My youngest daughter made the bouquet for me for Mother's Day! I have to say this may be my all time favorite!

These are the only flowers I could find at my house and I still haven't managed to resize one to put it as my avatar but I thought I would share anyway!

The dwarf tiboucina at the front of my house. My favourite colour, so I love this one!


The gold grevillea at my letterbox


And a red one that's next to my garage.

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.
