Two of my passions are African Violets and wild Mustang horses. My hope is to blog about both here... the violets that I'm growing (or lusting after!) and the wild Mustangs that I visit at Sand Wash Basin, CO when I can.

Went to a Violet sale today
Sold/gave away 7 starters and was good... only *bought* 1 plant and 3 sets of leaves!
Do you know what they do at the end of a sale though? LOL
They GIVE things away! At least they did today! And I ended up with so many more plants and leaves, it's crazy! Since I hadn't planned to come home with these ones, I'm wondering if anyone can tell me about growth on them?
Plants: Cherries and Cream Magnolia Plum Gem Reka Volga Colonial Werries Creek
Leaves: Island Hideaway Glimmer Rebel's Splatter Kake (I bought this one and then realized it was large... is it really???) Ma's Fuzzy Slippers Rechke Severka (not sure on the spelling of this one but it's a Russian Trailer) Cutie Christine Maas Janet Jolly Eyes Rob's Cotton Ball Rob's Dust Storm
I bought leaves of Rainbow's Quiet Riot (the plants that I saw were breathtaking!) and a plant of Judie's Satin Doll. I know nothing about Judie's Satin Doll but it was so pretty! I took photos of the blooming plants before I disbudded, so I'll post them when I can.
