I was at one of my favorite nurseries on Wednesday, for the first time this 
year, and bought a beautiful double flowered Impatien.  I've never really 
carred much for Impatiens before but this one has flowers that look like mini 
Rosa Mundi roses, candy stripped red and white.  I think its a New Guinea 
Impatien as the stem is thick and fleshy.

I've also become enthralled with Salpinglossis, Painted Tongue.  I found 
some a coupe of weeks ago at another favorite nursery and just had to buy 
a couple.  Their colors are so incredible, russet veined with yellow and 
fringed with purple tones, blue veined in white fringed in lavendar etc...
