What do you know? I'm first over!!!

Somerset, KY(Zone 6b)

Been out working in the yard this morning. Got my Plum tree planted and my wild Hydrangea that I got on Wed. I'm hoping it will tolerate the transplant and bloom for me this year. Wonder what color it will be?

Barnesville (Charle, GA(Zone 8b)

Lori, I got my Iris and have them planted. I know they are going to be beautiful. got Your yellow one in box. will mail in morning.

Monticello, KY(Zone 6b)

HI Everyone
Lori got the iris today thank you so much now I have to decide where I'm going to put them.

Beautiful day out but storm due later tonight or tomorrow.

mekos, I love the lite blue one. Any idea of the name?

Fair Play, SC(Zone 7b)

Not a clue. I've had these for a good while and didn't keep the tags before joining DG. Never needed names before. Just like the colors.

Fair Play, SC(Zone 7b)

I'll probably take some to the round up this fall. They shouldn't be hard to get up.
Got to go back to the hospital Monday for more tests to try and find the blockages around my heart and maybe soon I'll be able to do stuff again. Seray, RRM, and I want to do a round up in Agusta Ga. in September if all works out and we will post more about it when all the details are worked out, but IF we do it, I'll be taking some stuff growing and seeds for the ones able to come. Would like to see some of the wonderful people I've met and made friends with on here.

Barnesville (Charle, GA(Zone 8b)

Yeah! We want to meet everyone. Come on down, up, across , however you want to get here.

Fair Play, SC(Zone 7b)

OK where did Al put the pictures? Am I lost? I'm always needing help with computer stuff.

Phoenix, AZ(Zone 9a)

I'll check it out! Are you mekos there too?

Fair Play, SC(Zone 7b)

Yes

Phoenix, AZ(Zone 9a)

Fair Play, SC(Zone 7b)

Sundance, WY(Zone 3b)


Mekos and Nettie, you 2 both take care of yourselves! Sure hoping that you are both feeling good, and prayers are with you. Al, where are those pictures? Rained and snowed and very windy here for the last 2 days, so have gotten nothing done outside, and the forecast is for worse weather for the next 2-3 days. Obviously, I need everyone's pictures, as it may be awhile here! At least the trees are blossoming yet, so this cold freezing weather shouldn't kill our chances of fruit this year, at least not this freeze, anyway! Night all!

Litchfield, ME(Zone 5a)

I have a picture!! THe new baby is here, Mom has not named him yet but here he is!! That is Zaria holding him

I'm editing my Arizona pictures as we speak. Kinda got caught up in business stuff after the trip so I've been busy the last couple of days. I'll start another thread just for the photos so not to plug up this one for everybody.

Phoenix, AZ(Zone 9a)

Cute kiddos Robin!

Fair Play, SC(Zone 7b)

OH Robin, How precious! May God bless you all. They are Both adorable! What a blessing!
It's ok Al, I just kinda get lost when I'm not on much and lose what thread we are on so was just wondering if I was lost. Take your time. Hope you are rested from the trip some.
Skellogg, how much longer does your winter last? I'm so sorry about your snow.(;0) but cheer up you still have time to put snowballs in the freezer and use them in the summer when someone urks you. Let em have it. I do this.I been planning a trip to Ga for RRM. I got snowballs with her name right on them.(Now Charlene, you know I wouldn't really do that! Don't ya?) But you get the idea?!?
Nettie, I sowed seeds last fall and got some tiny babie seedlings. May bring them to the round-up in Sept. They probably won't bloom in my lifetime. We'll see. Here is one I got growing.

Oh, she really does skellogg, don't beleive her, she is not as innocent as she looks. Watch out for Mekos, she keeps snowballs in freezer so she and that big red mule can lope them at me!!!1 How sneaky can you get. Your iris will be in mail Monday, Skellogg.
Come on nettie, I want to meet you. Come on everyone and Keep your snowballs in the cooler til we meet.☺☺

Hornell, NY(Zone 5a)

Just getting started on my Red Rock Arizona pictures - this is just a sample. I'll get back later.

OH AL, how nice. I had a friend that lived there for a year or so and she sent me pictures of the red rocks around and I thought it was amazing. I love the colors there. She moved back down here just a year before she died. But that is a beautiful place. One I always wanted to see.

Montrose, AR(Zone 8a)

Those are 2 precious children Robin...

Those are 2 precious irises Mekos hehe This is iris "before the storm"

Im glad my irises are back close to the house and not near the road.. stupid sucker working for the county came thru driving truck spraying round up in swirling winds of about 20 mph on the 29th(Thur) didnt spray my yard but sprayed the other side of the road like the wind wasnt gonna carry it.. By the time I realized what he was doing and ran up there it was to late he had already sprayed...I shook my finger at him (guess which one) and gave him a few choice words....

I washed everything with water... Friday heres a pic of hosta in shade garden which is packed full of different hosta and shade plants not to mention my goth garden in there my bog garden is right there all my EE my calla lilies I am fuming... I called the judge He came down yesterday evening but told me he didnt think it was the round up because he didnt think it would go to work that fast... So after he left I went and walked down the road and found some bushes it had wilted and took a few pics of them.. He is supposed to be back Monday.. I bet he wont pay for danged thing out there tho...

OH huney, I think that was the name mine had when I got it a while back. I didn't keep the tag and it never bloomed before and I had forgot. I pull the center petals open to see inside of mine but it looks just like that. I'll have to remember the name... yea right! me remember anything?!? I have several of those. All are starting to bloom now for the first time.
That is so pretty. I have the black gamecock but it is still tiny and won't bloom this year. But it's ALIVE!

Fair Play, SC(Zone 7b)

So sorry about the spraying out there. They came here a year or two ago and sprayed mine and killed my cedar tree and azaleas under it and it was waaaay down in my yard, not on road property. I had a few choice words for them too but nothing I could do. I cut them down and planted more azaleas but not another cedar tree. Now I watch for the idiots and stand out there with a camera when they come by and they leave me alone.

Montrose, AR(Zone 8a)

This is looking from the road at what I call the shade garden or Hosta garden... Taken the day they sprayed just minutes afterwards

Nothing grand but lots of time standing on my head planting, and lots of money if I have to go buy plants to replace them... Here is what I call the bog garden.. ha lack of bog plants but anyway...

Montrose, AR(Zone 8a)

This one I call the Goth bed.. It has EE and calla's ferns, peruvian daffs, cocks combs, the lil pink phlox i just dug up.. My LA irises, butterfly ginger, pink surprise lilies..IM hoping washing the plants with water right after he sprayed may have helped them.. I dont know tho..Plus it rained all day yesterday.. I will know after the first hot day we have for sure.. I have brugs planted out next to the road too...
