Mandevilla

Jack and the mandevilla vine

The beautiful mandevilla (my favorite posey) in front of our retirement apartment (at Stellhorn Retirement Community, Fort Wayne) seems to have a strain of “beanstalk” this year. It is reaching for the stars, in a year when bunnies are eating the lovely ground flowers we usually have.

Send in that photo

Take a photo of your grandest garden mistake, favorite produce or prettiest posy.

Email your favorite photo as a JPEG attachment to garden@jg.net.

Please include your name, the name of any person or pet in the photo, type of plant, and the community where you live.

We'll give them all a look and post one per person on The Journal Gazette’s gardening blog, “We’re Digging It.” Some of them might also make it into The Dirt column.
