WEll, about 85% of mine are already in the ground, so I'll have to go around with my little note pad and write them all down to let you know what all I got LOL

i'll try to get that done real soon.

I've been working like a 1-armed paper hanger today trying to get mine somewhat grounded. Got at least 1/2 of it done, but I did take a few pictures.

Here is part of what I brought home.

(Thanks KA for the new thread)

Wow, Bonnie, if you have already planted 1/2 of all those plants, you have really been busy! Looks like you made quite a haul! That bird plant hanger is really cute!

Kathy Ann, Charlotte and I swapped plant trays today so we now have the right plants! LOL I got them all in the ground today except the rice paper plant. I was reading about it in plant files and the information there said that it can get quite big and is invasive. Is it that way for you? I will bring your milkweeds and other plants to you tomorrow.

Isn't that bird hanger cute - it is pretty heavy duty too.. I think heavier than Kim thought it would be. I think next year though - I will tell everybody "no gifts". It was like a birthday or something for me - when it was Kim's birthday.

I am back on line, and I had lots of fun--and lots of pain !!! I did not make many pictures either, I did make some at Rita's on Thursday, but have not unloaded them yet. I scrambled to get the house straightened up this morning, so the Dixie-Net guys could come in my bedroom where the boxes are located, and then they sent the stuff home with Cayla when she got off work and she fixed it.

Kenny told me Jim is doing so well from his surgery that they are probably gonna let him go home tomorrow. I think the pathologist report is supposed to be back tomorrow as well.

yes, I couldn't figure why you wanted that one and didn't take the variegated petitsites, cause the petitsites is less invasive as the ricepaper plant is. It's not too bad though, you'll just have to pull the babies up when their unwanted, the leaves are big and beautiful and you can under plant things like the asarum canadense under it. or any other things like ajuga. which is what I do.

I see you've been busy Bonnie.

I just tore myself away from the sewing machine, can go get a list now of what I bought.

I am going to be really busy this week but I am going to try to stay home for most of tomorrow and get some things in the ground. I think I have over committed myself this week - going to have to learn to say NO!
Sandra I'm so sorry you want be going to Rita's! But I do understand that sometime you do just have to do what is best for your body! Hope you get some relief from you pain soon!

Wow , Kathy Ann that is some list. I bet it is going to be beautiful. I finally got that new petunia " pretty much picasso" Thanks to Kathy Ann for pointing it out to me ... I probably would have missed that too if she hadn't.

We got a lot of the same plants , But I looked for a coral nymph salvia and usually find it at Rita's and never did see it , where did you find yours ? Mine usually reseeds it self profusely, but so far no seedlings ...maybe it got TOO cold for the seeds this winter..I don't know???

sorta disapointed , I always get Supertunia vista bubblegum pink petunias to plug in my beds for all summer color and outstanding growth and performance... could not find them anywhere at any of the nurseries.. Rita's had some in Hanging baskets but was out of the individual pots. We went to Morris and 4 seasons after we left yall, it was on our way home. We also stopped and dug up red buckeye trees on the side of the road going home..those things have a taproot on them from heck

How was Homestead ? They probably had the supertunia I was looking for... I hate I missed it...I could probably never find my way down there on my own and Max was tuckered out from two days of driving and sitting waiting on me... so I could not really push my luck too much!! Ha , Ha

Sandra - Did you get the two iochromas you wanted ? I have the purple one , if you want one?

Great Thanks to Bonnie for a great lunch and day at her house...her home and gardens are beautiful and the food was deliscious!! Looking for rendevous rub now, so we can give our smoker another try. The hash brown casserole and grape salad was awesome , too. Thank you so much for everything you and DH did for us !!

Hanging basket with Rita's gold fern in it. The other fern I dug from the yard. I'm headed outside in a little while to try and get the rest of my stuff in the ground. I have somewhere to go tonight, but I have decided I'm not leaving my house today until then. Got to wash dirty clothes, clean dirty, dirty house and get some things done in the yard.

I did not get the iochroma, because Becky was bringing me one to Jeri's the color that Rita had. I never did see the red one anywhere. I might just have to wait until next year and order that early in the season, since I am not going to Jeri's.
I did not even think about canceling until we got to Homestead--I bent over to look at a tag in a pot, I was way up on that hill where the hosta were and I thought I was going to have to live there--I would not have even walked up there except Kenny told me the verbena was there and I wanted to find a red one for Mamma, which there was not a red one anywhere except the annuals. My back bothered me the whole week end, but that was a real wake up call.
I will probably sit here and cry all week end you all are down there, but if I got 6 hours from home and it went completely out on me, I would be in real trouble. I have been so bad I could not stand long enough to shower without tears flowing and I really don't want to push until I get into that shape again
As much as I love our outings, I have to let common sense prevail, some days I go to Ripley and get a few groceries and just pushing the cart will put me down for a few hours, so Jerry had the joy of telling me he knew the week end would be too much--MEN-- !!!!!!!! You all notice he did not say a word before we left though, he knows me too well--LOL !!!!
Now everyone has to have fun for me and eat my share of all the good food !!

Nice list KA!! I can't believe you already have them all planted!! I love the look of that starfire phlox... started to order it on the bluestone coop but it was one on the want list that had to be cut! LOL It said it didn't like humidity so I wondered how it would do here so let me know... Bet that Green Jewel echie is nice too!

Sandra, I am so sorry your back is causing you problems again! I know how much that hurts... mine has started to give me trouble again and the doctor said I was probably looking at a third surgery but I told him it was going to have to get worse before I went under the knife again. I am REALLY tired of being cut on! I hate that you won't be able to go to Jeri's... I was looking forward to seeing you again!

homestead was great.

we have good taste Sharon LOL

coral nymph came from that nursery in Hernando that we stopped by. if you got one that already has bloomed chances are it won't come back next year as it only comes back by seed.

I spent less this year than I ever have before, I must have got some good deals LOL

I just love the tall phlox, my bright eyes gets my waiste high. (maybe not ya'lls though) and doens't ever fall over. it's georgious. I had to get all those new phlox, and hope to see a few blooms this year but doubtful.

I got my few pots fixed today
Did anyone else get the Euphorbia that Rita bred?
She calls it Hot Tamale, I think she said the sedum is Japan something

Nice job Sandra. And I thought you didn't get anything except for your momma. I didn't see the Hot Tamale. I seemed to recall hearing something about it, then must have gotten side-tracked.

Cindy I got the morning glories set out that you brought me today too, I put the osteospermum you found in a pot also and the Patio tomato.
I put those crystals I have had since last year around the tomato, in hopes of keeping the cat out of them. I need to get some more of those little pebbles to put on it too.

Bonnie, I got those on Thursday when we went. I am going to go to Mamma's and get her stuff fixed tomorrow. I thought she had all her pots on the porch filled, but she informed me this morning that she still had a place for 2 pots that she wanted some of the petunias in. She will direct my little trowel and I will put the other stuff where she wants it.
I did not get new plants because I am not able to drag the water hose around the yard and water, so I just got a few thing to keep on the porch. I will try Ruth's trick and water them from the dish water !! That is how she kept Cindy's Rita's Gold ferns looking so good last year until she got to deliver them.

I just wanted to get something of Ritas and I think it is pretty neat, the Mother plant was cut way back she said and it was still pretty big, she said it bloomed all summer last year and it does not have any thorns--I hate thorns

I like those pebbles too, it keeps the dirt from splashing on the plants when you water them, I need to pick up some more when I get back to Hobby Lobby.

great photos, Sandra--of Rita's containers and of your own pots!
Cindy: I really enjoyed the photos of Rita's that you took, too, and Bonnie's place is absolutely gorgeous!
Bonnie: maybe I will get to see your gardens in person some time. I hope so!

I hope you can too Marilyn, her Japanese Maples are worth the trip. Also the blue angel hosta ! not to mention everything else. I know you would love to see Paul's pets too.
I know Cindy made more than the one picture of Paul's pets, wonder why she didn't post them??

Wow Cindy - great job. What amazes me is, how many different items it takes to fill a container. When I thought I had bought enough, I've still had to get back out for more "filler" items. Went to Dan West on the way home yesterday and was very bad, bad !

Well Marilyn - he has quite a few. All of them are out in another building - none in the house. He likes to raise them and see what colors, patterns, etc.he gets. It isn't legal to have native snakes, or poisonous snakes either - so everything we have are just common snakes - like California king snakes, Central American Milks, Black pines, variety colors of corn snakes, etc. Cindy actually got some nice pictures of alot of them. He gathered up alot of babies that he had and took them off to a friend of his. Before he left, my neighbor asked if a little boy down the street could have one (of course he could) - so they came over and actually picked out 2. Now I am thinking maybe this little boy might want my bearded dragon too.

He just needs a better home than mine. I thought maybe a young boy that is into reptiles would give him more time than I do. Just if someone comes up and wants him, why Marilyn - do you want him ?
