Ok here we go for the pictures of May flowers, we will count April 30th as May, since we are getting rain tomorrow--I figured these flowers would not be so pretty after the deluge of rain

Sandra: Lovely blossoms, all! My gunny's rose is covered in buds and has had one bloom so far but the petals have already dropped on it.

Like Sandra, I went out and took some photos today because after the expected rains/thunderstorms tonight and tomorrow, I didn't know if the flowers would look so good.

The green hellebore which Kathy Ann gave me has been blooming literally for weeks.

I just love iris--any kind, any color. It's just too bad they don't bloom all summer!

Speaking of iris, this is Celebrity Song, which Kathy Ann gave me, as well. I wish you would just look at that monster hollyhock behind it! It is taking up so much room and crowding out some of the other plants.

Have you noticed it always rains hard when the peonies start to bloom? I don't have any, but I see them everywhere and it usually comes a flood when they are bloomed out.
Yours is so pretty, and when that monster hollyhock starts to bloom, you will like it then-LOL

I did not know that about the peonies blooming bringing the rain! Maybe I should have told it not to bloom right now--LOL The hollyhock was not in that spot last year--they were at the other end (south) of the flower bed. I really don't know how they got into the north end of the bed unless I scattered some seeds there, but I don't remember doing that. LOL there are 3 hollyhocks in that end of the bed now but that one is the biggest. I will be glad when they bloom!

Here is another Celebrity Song with the Walker's Low catmint behind it and a Ballerina Rose guara to the right.

Marilyn, that picture looks more like a Shasta than a ditch daisy, the ditch daisies get about waist high and don't have as full of a bloom as the Shasta--is that the same clump you showed earlier?
I have not had any of my ditch daisies to bloom yet, but they are budding. I probably pulled a thousand out and pitched them off the bank when I cleaned the roadside bed out.

One last photo for now--this is one of my torch lilies with several bloom stalks getting ready to bloom.

edited to say: That was a close-up of the ditch daisies--they aren't as big as they look in the photo.

Marilyn - that Sorbet peony is absolutely gooorrrgeous ! Amazing to see how far your butterfly garden has come.
It is really hard for me to photo this rose on the side of my garage - but this year, it has really started putting on a show. Seems my lense had a smudge on it.

I think it may be because this is the first time I've ever had a peach one.

Here's the story of the day:)

I went out last night and cut some of my irises so I could enjoy them inside this weekend - course I knew they wouldn't look good after the storms. So I took this vase of Iris to work with me today - so that we could all enjoy them...

So around lunch time a co-worker was standing in my office door talking to me when we heard a funny sound - I said "What was that" she thought it was the door making a sound but then we got quiet and we heard a big ole bullfrog croak coming from my iris bouquet. Well when we investigated here's what we found resting down inside one of the iris is he cute or what? He slept in there all afternoon until I got ready to go home. Unfortunately, he didn't get to come home with me because I was afraid he jump out while I was driving and cause me to wreck. We laughed till we cried especially when I started thinking that I had held onto that vase all the way to work this morning so imagine what would have happened if he'd jumped on me while I was driving. All those irises made my office smell heavenly all day today!

We just had a tornado come through here a few miles to the east of me, evidently. I just came out of taking cover in the bathtub with Friday. I didn't have to persuade him to get in there with me--he has been in my lap all night--stuck to me like glue! Animals seem to have a sixth sense about these things and he hopped right in the bathtub with me and let me cover him with a pillow. The immediate danger is passed for now but it looks like we are in for a long night. At one time in the past hour there were 5 active tornado warnings in the state. There have been confirmed fatalities in one area, unfortunately. The tv weather guy just said the NWS has just upgraded Arkansas to a high risk for tornadoes until 7 in the morning!
Kathy Ann, I hope you are keeping an eye on things. That tornado that just went through my area is headed into White County and is near Beebe now.

Well, on to more pleasant things:

Karen, if you divide that peach iris this fall, I would like to have one of the rhizomes. It is beautiful! Cute story about the frog or toad, whatever the case may be. :o))
Bonnie: I love that Hurdy Gurdy--it is stunning!
Kathy Ann, that salvia did come back for me. When I bought it the tag just said "blue salvia".

It has been a bad night - hope it finally beginning to let up...at least the worst stuff!

Here is my Arms Wide Open Iris. I purchased this in the coop last fall and have been anxious to see how it would look. I ended up cutting these blooms off this afternoon because of the impending storm. When Alex was burned and in the ICU in the burn unit, he listened to a CD by Creed over and over and over... the song "Arms Wide Open" happened to be on that CD twice and so we listened to it many, many times. I can't hear that title without thinking of that, so I had to add it to my collection. I think it is really pretty - although it is more lavender than what my photos show...

Wow all the photos are great. Charlotte you amaze me at all the things you have tucked into that lot.

Marilyn your beds are outstanding this year. Your little ditch daisy I believe is a Marguerite daisy. They are smaller more mounded than the Shasta. Marguerites come in many colors but white is all I have ever had or seen in the nurseries . It definitely does not look like the wildflower Sandra is talking about to me. I am no expert though.

Kim I bought some of the supertunias today too.

Bonnie and Charlotte I will try to get each of you a start of the byzantine glads. I lost lots of the these when the bank fell off. I also owe Jeri some.

Every one's Iris are beautiful. I have been working so hard on a new bed that I haven't taken any pictures, but I am loving y'all's. I did have a black gamecock LA iris blooming today. I though I had lost all except the common blue, purple, or rust colored LAs. yeah

Sandra when I got home and was watering plants that where bunched together in pots I found a pot of amsonia blooming. I didn't loose it after all. I was amazed at what had survived in those pots with no care. I have got to get them back in the ground though the wind is blowing hard here everyday. All my pots that I created are so wind burned. My daylilies are putting up scapes through the weeds. I should have some blooms as early as next week. Your Iris have really bloomed out since I was there.

Genna I really like that Mellow Yellow Spirea

Looking forward to everyone's pictures. I am sorry you are having such an awful night with the tornados. Stay safe. Cindy

Genna, I love your spirea but it didn't come from me - I wish it had. I confess to being a spirea fan. I have Little Princess, Frobelli and last year I bought Solar Flare on clearance of course. They always put on such a great show and they are easy to grow. My Frobelli is huge this year - I am trying to root some cuttings because I'd love to add that one in some other places in the yard. The solar flare is starting to put out new growth which is kinda reddish/orange and I can tell it is going to be a gorgeous plant. Here's a picture of the 'solar flare' spirea

BTW anybody know what this might be? It definitely came from the Oct RU and it had a tag that said "Karen" on it but the name was gone.

Glad to see everyone made it through last night. Looked outside and one of my knock out roses is bending almost to the ground, and something blue blooming in one bed- but it is raining again so no picture of what the new blue is. My youngest DGD spent the night. She is really afraid of storms. The base siren would go off, then the Jacksonville siren would go off-around 1am she finally came and got in bed with me. Probably the first time since she was 6.

Genna, I wish that spirea had came from me. It is a pretty plant. I got a bridal wreath from someone at the fall ru. I think they had brought seveal types of Spriea, but I dont have who it was written on my sheet.

Karen's frog was the hit of the office yesterday. The Irises she brought to work were so pretty. They reminded the boss there was one at what he calls "the old home place" that he was going to give either Karen or I. When I told him I only had one Iris blooming this year, after moving all of them last fall-he said he thought he would give it to Karen (lol).

No, I am NOT sure it is a salvia at all,... LOL... I just know that SOMETHING in that bed is Limelight Salvia! ^_^ I have a tag that my chickens pulled up and I don't know what it goes with. I had originally thought it went with the Mellow Yellow Spirea - and I inquired back in March while the spirea was blooming and Sandra said the salvia would not be blooming that early that it had to be something else. Then finally I found the tag on the spirea - which made much more sense that it would be blooming that early!!! I am still very much a novice at trying to remember what everything is - looked at that minnie pearl phlox at least 4 times before it started blooming because I could never REMEMBER what it was!! My memory is getting really really bad!

Anyway, I have another something out there - that I don't know what it is and I will try to get a pic of it sometime this weekend if weather permits - then there is always the chance that I LOST the salvia and it isn't there anymore.

Thanks for the possible id on the plant - I will have to check my list to see what I ordered from Bluestone last year - I MIGHT have purchased a honey bee blue.

Love that Rainbow's End and the Hurdy Gurdy... I am really enjoying the few rose blooms that I have - but I have cut most of them to bring them in to enjoy. I NEED to add to my roses.

Janie we cross posted... Ok, I am TOTALLY baffled now. I know I got the spirea at Debra's from someone who took one of my limelight rose 4:00 seedlings... said they had an entire bed of the limelight or chartruse colored plants... and gave me that in exchange for it. I am HORRIBLE with names - don't remember WHO it was! I will pull the tag out of the ground when I get a chance and see if it has a name. There were lots of new faces there last Spring and I have obviously gotten my names mixed up - which is definitely not unusual for me!

But, that is good for me - since none of you have it, maybe eventually I will be able to share with everybody - WHICH IS a rare thing at this point!!

Everybody's flowers are so pretty! Bonnie, in case I didn't tell you, I absolutely love that Hurdy Gurdy climbing rose! If I had any place to put another climber, I would get one of those.

Thanks, Cindy, for the clue on the Marguerite Daisy. I had one two years ago but it didn't do anything last year at all. Now I have these that I have been calling ditch daisies but I think you are correct. The Marguerite must have come back miraculously from re-seeding itself. Isn't God's natural world wonderful?!

Genna, congrats on the bloom on the Minnie Pearl--it should prove to be a prolific bloomer for you! Your flowers are all looking good! I couldn't keep up with the names of all my flowers if I didn't put one of those tags in the ground beside each plant(made from Kim's and Janie's cut-up mini-blinds).

In spite of the bad weather last night, with more expected this afternoon, my plants seem to have survived without much damage although the iris do look somewhat bedraggled this morning. The Knock-out roses have also lost quite a few of their petals.

Marilyn, I have tags too... I just have chickens that love to scratch in my beds and they often "move" the tags! Then I have a few of the bling tags that I can no longer read...

I do have a lot of mine marked with the Eon markers - but I try to wait to make sure it is going to survive before I use one of them...LOL... and sometimes by that point, I have lost or can't read the other tag. I can barely remember my own name most days - much less all those flower names!!

I'm back from my first round of delivering, etc. Wet and pooped! Not sure how I got wet because it didn't really rain while I was out. I was delivering bags of ice, so I guess that's how I got wet. Looks like it is going to rain off and on today. I was just out making a walk around the yard and it started to rain but think it has already quit.

Marilyn the dead nettle has a pretty bloom - guess I didn't tell you that. I also have another dead nettle that has more green with the white highlights. It has a very similar bloom.

Thanks you guys. Maybe if Jim comes over next weekend, I will get him to try to root some of the Hurdy Gurdy for you guys.
Love all the pictures. Genna - proud to see you posting pictures. I don't know if I have ever seen any of your flowers/plants before - very nice.
Very funny story Karen. You never know where those little cuties may be hiding. I haven't seen any out yet this year. I thought it may be a little early for them.
I love seeing the plants of everyone that someone else shared with them. What a great group we have that is enriching our lives. Everytime I walk around my yard and see something growing that was a "gift" from a DG friend - I feel blessed.
Charlotte - your bloodgood is really making a statement against all that green in the background. Very nice.

Bonnie, glad to see you posting, it was rough your way this morning, wasn't it? Memphis is really in a mess--the Med has diverted patients as they are having a raw sewage problem there from the flooding.

Genna, I don't think the limelight salvia is even up yet. I have not seen mine yet, but it could have been a casualty of the hard winter we had. It does not bloom until fall
This picture was made Oct 10-2008, you can see a few of the leaves and they are green, the limelight refers to the part where the bloom comes from.
If you got it from me, I raised the ones I gave away from seed. I had one to bloom before the round up and it was a true bloom, but when you plant salvia from seed they don't always come true.

That limelight salvia is really pretty. It was a surprise to me to see the blue blooms but I can understand now why they call it "limelight".

Bonnie: although I have bought some plants, a large percentage of the plants in my gardens have come from other DGers--God bless them! My garden is 2 1/2 years old now and this is the first year that I have had much to trade. It is a blessing to me to be able to pass on some of the plants that were given to me.
Every time I see a plant in my garden from a DGer, it reminds me of that particular person and also puts a smile on my face! The Lady Diana rose that you gave me is doing well, by the way. When she blooms I will post a photo of her for you. I did have to cut her back some this year because the top half died off during our bad winter.

Talked to Sandra right after that bad system went through and they are fine, but her power was out. Not sure if it is back on yet.

Karen, your plant looks like St. John's Wort "Brigadoon" I brought several of these to the RU in Oct.

Genna, your plant looks like agastache "Golden Jubilee" Mine are up and about the same size as that.

I got out earlier and took a few pics before the storms got her.

Here's my "Josephine" clematis. My favorite, right now anyway! lol

Karen, loved your frog story. That is too funny!

Sandra, that small iris of yours - did you buy it in Nashville a couple of years ago? I have one that sounds and looks very similar called Everlasting Love. I think I got it in Nashville and thought it was bigger I guess.

Love everyone's iris photos. Terrye your clematis are lovely I have been eyeing a Belle of Woking. How tall is yours? I'd like to get something that stays 6-8 feet rather than 12-15 like some of them do.

Charlotte, that is a greate succulent basket. I'm going to visit Hobby Lobby and see if I can find a similar basket.

Can't remember if I posted this iris or not on the otoher thread. It's one of my favorites and I still haven't tracked down the name yet.

I was looking at some baptista this morning also I have lots of seeds I just need to get some things planted.. I just want instant gratification.. I do have several types of echinacea started from seeds from WS also lupines, coreopsis, bee balms and a few other things only thing I've moved to the ground yet is the lupines.. They are doing better than the prob to small echinacea I potted up..Maybe the soil was no good..I may need to feed them..

The start of these amaryllis came from my grandmother..She is still alive and kicking high too at 94..

Lovely iris and other flowers, Trish! You certainly do have plenty of room to expand! I was going to make another bed along the fence on the north side of my back yard, but I decided against it. I told myself, "Marilyn, you have all you can do to maintain the flower beds you have now. You don't need another flower bed to weed!" LOL so I haven't made it----yet.

Lovely iris, Charlotte, and very nice job with those containers, too! What kind of grass is that in the one container? It would look really appropriate if it was planted in one of those "head" containers because it looks like hair gone wild! LOL
I really like that Tour de France iris. The name of Pure Water is a mystery but you know the folk who name these plants don't always give them a sensible name.

Wow - everyone's blooms and pots are looking fab !
Terrye - I love that Watercolor rose, and your clematis' look great - espeically with the rose combo. I started some similar this year on the front corners of my house. May take awhile to get to some size.
Marilyn - you are too sweet. I love thinking of my friends also as I walk thru my yard. Sharon's DMIL brought me a box of succulents last Saturday and I tried to tell her "thanks" and she wouldn't hear of it.
Love all the iris' blooms. Has been raining too hard here for me to get out and get any pictures today.
Ka -that ruffled velvet sib. iris has put on another show for us this year. Mine didn't make it :-( that you sent me last year. I was looking sooo forward to having that.
Elaine - don't you just love it when something shows up that you forgot about and it is flourishing ? What a gift.
Glad to see so many are doing well thru all the storms.
Thanks Terrye for updating us on Sandra.

Thanks Sharon you are right!! I have one other plant I bought at Rita's for the foliage. I need to put the two of them together in a pot. I need to post a picture of the other plant because it didn't have a tag either and I don't know what it is!
The grass is feather grass. It is not hardy for my zone but I just loved the way draped. I'll dig it up and try to carry it over this winter.
Cindy I have to admit I am a collector. I used to collect china, boxes and other stuff and I finally ran out of room so I do all my collecting outside now. I really like unusual plants.
I don't know the story, but isn't it some kind of folklore that you are not supposed to thank someone for a plant?? I have a friend that always says "I would thank you for this but I'm not supposed to".
I too love having plants that have been given to me by others. It does make you think of that person as you walk around and look at the various plants. I can't really put it in words, but the personality of that person seems to come through in the type plant they gave. It seems the plants I get from others even do better than other plants.
Kathy Ann I think the photo is making it a little more yellow. It looks like the one in the link you sent me. I was just somehow expecting a blue!

Charlotte, I have heard that old saying, too--that you are not supposed to thank a person who gives you a plant because the plant won't grow. You are just supposed to pass it on when the plant gets big enough to divide in the future. So I am not thanking any of you for the plants you have given me or will be giving me--I'm just blessed to be able to pass them on this time around at Jeri's RU! :o))

Thank you, Thank you, Ants, for the iris ID. Yes! It is Batik. I could not remember the name and haven't had time to go find my planting sketches to figure it out.

Kathy-Ann, I love your foxglove. I tried to start some from seed this year. The seeds are like pin pricks they are so small. Did you buy plants? By the way, my penstemon is lavender something or other. I'll double check.

I could look at all these pretty pictures over and over. Love it all.

Bonnie, my clematises have held true to the perennial code... they just sit there for 3 years and then take off. Most of mine are 3-4 years old and this year they are showing out. So much I bought two more at Homestead and ordered more last night. Had to have that Elsa Spath and then got tempted by pictures! lol

Cindy, that Professor Neil is a beauty. I love that lilac color.

More rain for us here today. We've had several inches today and wind but nothing too strong. Especially nothing like poor Tennessee. I saw where Rita had posted she was flooded out.

Hey guys,

I know I can post this over on the ID board but I thought I'd check here first. Last night when DH and I left for supper I noticed this plant blooming at the end of our road - there is an old home place there that no one has lived in for years. It looks like a wisteria to me but all the regular wisteria bloomed weeks ago. I never remember seeing this blooming before (seems like I'd have noticed it) this plant has flowers that really look like wisteria but the bunches are more rounded than elongated. I couldn't tell if the tree this was in was what was blooming or if it was a vine growing in the tree. I'll post a close up of the bloom next Any ideas on what it might be?

Yes, and they will all be up for adoption as soon as they are eating. This is Cayla's kitty and she failed to get her spayed, so now she has 4 little bundles to find homes for.
Kit was so proud of her babies, first thing this morning she rolled over to show them to me--lol--they started getting here about 6pm last night.
I have them in a basket now, I had thrown an old pillow on the love seat that I had used when our power was out to sit on the porch in a lawn chair, I picked her up out of the floor and laid her on that pillow about 3pm and she had them on the pillow. Then she moved them from the pillow to the love seat. I saw her tummy contracting and went to get the basket--but it was too late--one was already out when I got back with the basket

The amaryllis are in the ground and have done good for years. I figure if they made it this past winter they are good to go.

Bonnie, you are liable to cause a stampede if you bring yard art! LOL We are always on the lookout for whimsical yard art over here in central Arkansas! I want to get some of those blue bottles that Charlotte has on her fence. Guess I need to make a trip to the Dollar Store and see if I can find some. I promise to pour out the yucky stuff inside, Charlotte! LOL

Ohhh - I had one of them the other day KA. Like to have scared me to death. I had to save it to show DH, then he wasn't all that impressed, so I fed it to my turtles.

Did you see that 55 gal tank above Walter that was empty with green water ? Thats where the turtles live. They were in a temporary cage down at the fish pond I think when we had the party. I thought they needed some natural vitamin D. I have them back in the aquarium now.

That is some worm, Kathy Ann! I find big worms like that all the time when I am out digging in my garden or pulling weeds. That horse manure grows some really big worms! LOL

It has some grass like foliage, in fact the foliage is completely hidden by the bee balm
