    Default Patience is a virtue...

    Who here still gets giddy everytime you see one of these in your garden?

    I'm going to need an ID on this when it blooms because I, once again, lost its tag.

    This is seriously taking its sweet time.

    Over a month later and STILL CLOSED! I moved them indoors last week as it's already December so I see it right when I open my eyes in the morning... and my patience is running out!

    Agree, waiting can be tiring and need a lot of patience, but the fruit of your labor at the end is truly worth it!
