    You are so fortunate to have all those beauties growing in your backyard (and to have a backyard period!) Thanks for posting those pretty pictures reminding us that cold and snow won't last forever!

    Nice pics, Connie!

    Last pic is definitely a croton

    The orange flowering vine looks like some form of honeysuckle vine. They can be very invasive.

    Very surprised the pansy is doing well in a spot that gets a lot of heat. Usually they poop out when it's hot.

    Is the white and purple flower a Datura? Keep thinking of getting some Dat. seeds and giving them a go.

    LOVE the philodendrum!

    As far as the climbing cactus goes, could possible be a:

    Phyllocactus/Epiphyllum/Nopalxochia

    Good Friends,
    When I saw the pictures posted by Connie, I thought it was in Romania ... or maybe its neighbors are there ....
    With one exception, all other plants growing in Romania, flowers are extremely popular.
    1. Snapdragon-all colors increase in our pots or directly in the garden
    2. Pansy around the most popular flowers in our spring and fall. I garden in such plants. Pansy I put in the fall, and although snow fell more than they have survived and flourished were superb in the spring.
    There are all the colors .. and are superb. When we sell on spring .. I can hardly wait to send pictures of them, if you want. And mine and how to sell to us.
    "Paul is right! They are pretty sensitive to heat and sun to grow too strong ..
    Connie, that you like so much I can give some seeds.
    Red flowers are available to us with the "frost" (semperflorens begonia) and are red, pink and white. Found in parks. Also we will send pictures of them.
    Petuniile are flowers that you find throughout the summer. Unfortunately no smell but are excellent. They also sell and taraba.
    Datura and Hibiscus plants are less compared to the other but the court found in those who love flowers.
    Climbing plant, orange grows new fences, sometimes on house and part of the family and Campisi radicans in Romania is called popular "trumpet" are more yellow colors (more rare) red or orange.
    Glad you liked the flowers so much.
    Here are popular as you orhides in your countries.
    If you want to have seeds of these flowers ,speak, some we can not offer more because it is more difficult.
    I'll post pictures and how soon
    Yesterday it to snow and will post pictures of winter and that will show in the winter and my country.
    I owe that there are some pictures of my country ... but we could still do it for lack of time.But next week I will.
    I hope my English is understood by even a little.
    With friendship,
    Ruxandra

    Thanks for the show of color that I crave at this time of year. We have gone south for a winter pick me up in the past but stayed home this year.
