It looks pretty in front of the yellow barberry bush, although it only got put there because there was an empty spot of dirt--LOL--worked out pretty good anyway !

This is a named columbine, but I don't remember its name, I will look and edit later

I went and looked--her name is Dorothy Rose, I think I bought her at Dabneys last year.

Sandra, your pics are great! You'll have to save some seed from that columbine. That's a pretty one.
I took a few pictures today. Not many. I have been working in the yard all day while I can.

Here is my Lady Banks. She is about a fourth of the size she was last year. I cut her way back last fall to move the fence. We built the trellis a couple of weeks ago.

I wish I could remember the name of this rose. I have had it for 20 years and it has never had black spot and it has never been sprayed.

Nice pics, Sandra, and Terrye. You 2 have a lot going on there.

Hello, Terrye, I'm Karen. Sandra knows me from the Fun, Crazy, Sillies thread in the Parking Lot forums. Obviously I'm not so far along here, but I'm not too far behind y'all. We've gotten a head start here because of mild weather coming sooner than normal. We even had one day up to 90 here, a record for a day in April. And we broke a record for rainfall in March. Over 11" that month.

Karen, you are certainly welcome to add some of your pictures here too, we love seeing other peoples plants. You have some great photography too !!

Booneville, MS

Hi, Karen. Great to see you on Midsouth.

Ohhh Sandra,so glad your JM is doing that well. I have tons more creeping jenny if you need it. It is puttin on a show here too.

Terrye - your Lady Banks is beautiful !

I'll share a few pics since some of these won't be blooming next week when you all get here.

Would you believe this is from my yard? Didnt think so. Went to Garvin Gardens for the first time today. Wanted one of each type plant, in every color they come in. One or two of the bridges and waterfalls would be nice also.

Janie - that azalea is so pretty. I hope that is the same one I planted out front this year.

clematis - nellie moser

My Weigelia's do not have flowers almost the length of the branch.

Terrye - your creeping jenny looks great where you have it in contrast with what that is beside it. You may wish you never got it started. lol

iris - ima kinda lima (Genna - I think I sent you one of these)

I hope your Azalea is like the ones that were in the gardens also. They had so many shades of purple and pink. One of my favorites was the one in this picture, but this picture doesnt show the foliage clearly. It it is a Florida ?? Native Azalea.

Iris - Tea Leaves (not very impressed with this one - small blooms)

Thumbnail by n2birds
Lakeland / Memphis, TN(Zone 7a)

Janie - I am trying to "plan" my color scheme out front - lol - don't know how long that will last. lol I have planted the whites, yellows, oranges, lavendars and reds (which I haven't done yet) - we will see how that goes.

Iris - Broadband (little blurry - sorry)

Small - noid iris - first bloom out by my koi pond. See my babies in the background?

Allium - haven't looked up the name of this one yet. (Isn't this the coolest bloom!!)

Wonderful pictures, keep them coming. I love all the iris, I saw Kathy Ann posted some on FB--we are going to get her, she needs to be over here-LOL

Booneville, MS

Bonnie, love that Elsa Spath! I'm going to have to look for that one. Asao is the only one I have open so far but all the others are close.

I have a habit of planting things I later regret. I spent today thinning obedient plant, mums and sedums along with others. lol The color of the creeping jenny just makes it irresistable.

Charlotte, you will love that Sango Kaku. That is one of my favorite JMs.

Terrye

Halifax, MA(Zone 6a)

Oh, more nice pretties! Thanks for the welcome, Terrye. Sandra, I'll add a few, though they're probably ones you've already seen.

n2birds, I really love that Broadband iris. Gorgeous!
