Go ahead I was finished, just went back and edited on the verbena that Kathy Ann gave me the porcelain vine--
I was also thinking that Terrye might have given me that shorter iris, so she may know the name of it--she has some beautiful iris
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.
That's not a Shasta, Sandra-- I have those, too, but they aren't blooming yet. It is the same one I showed on the other thread. Whoo--I sure hope a thousand of them don't show up in this bed! LOL I'll be pulling them out for sure!
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.
Sandra - all of your iris' are sooo pretty, but I am not familiar with that byzantine glad. did you grow that from seed ?
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.
Cindy gave me the byzantine glads--you know she is the bulb lady--these are a very old flower, I am not sure if they are even sold anywhere now or not. I will have to search for it and see.
No, I don't recognize that plant????
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".
I managed to keep my staghorn fern alive during the winter. I killed the last one I had by spraying ant spray on it. After I had done it I read that you are not supposed to spray with ant spay. Hopefully I can keep this one alive for a while.
Beautiful flowers and plants, Charlotte! I would love to have a Japanese Maple but they are so expensive that I have never bought one.
A thunderstorm is taking place outside my house just now and I have lost my cable tv service but not my internet service nor the electricity--guess I will have to keep up with the current weather warnings via the internet.
I like that supertunia. Where did you find it?
The sirens keep going off here and I'm just sitting here like a dummy watching the weather on tv and playing with the computer. Don't want to go to bed however with the sirens going off! They are sounding now!
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...
Sandra - here is my mystery plant that I mentioned was blooming back about a month ago. FINALLY got a picture of it, but of course, it is no longer blooming...also found the tag... it is the Mellow Yellow Spirea... and I believe that either Karen or Janie brought it to me at Debras.
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
Don't work too hard Cindy!!
Genna I like that Mellow Yellow Spirea too!
It is not raining here this morning but very cloudy and dark so I would say we are going to have more rain today. The Little Rock Garden Tour is today and tomorrow. We had the same kind of weather during the tour last year. Got some errands do to for it this morning.
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
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.
Charlotte, I know you are busy today, occupied with that garden tour. I hope the tour does well, in spite of the weather! Anyway, I wanted to post this photo for you.
The Dead Nettle you gave me in March has blooms on it. This was the happy surprise that greeted me when I went out this morning to look over the flower beds.
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.
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.
Terrye, we're posting at the same time...I've been working on a few containers this week (again). Re-did a couple. This is cordyline, diascia, a really cute Curly Bronze Leaf coleus, and a salvia that came back from last year in the pot.
OH my, Love the container arrangements, and those iris are beautiful! Elaine, that penstemon is coming up in about 6 or 7 diff places in my gardens , I just love that, is it red rocks penstemon? kind of looks like it when it blooms,
Some more foxgloves, I just love these things, I wish I could grow delphiniums and lupines like I can grow foxgloves. and I wish these things would start reseeding themselves. Can't think of a prettier flower i'd rather have in the gardens.
this reminds me, My thermopsis golden banner has tons of seed pods on it and I have a baby coming up so I figure next year I will have lots of new plants of the golden banner and golden bean thermopsis which is in the baptisia family
I haven't had any luck ever trying them by seed, and not getting any to reseed for me either. but this is a big year for the foxgloves, their planted in quite a few places and have lot sof blooms so maybe i'll get babies next year.
Sandra said she started hers by seed, and it's blooming now, one year later.
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..
Edited because I either can't type or can't spell, I'm not sure which..
Heres a picture looking up the road from the front of my property.. You can see I still have plenty of room for flowers lol ...My hosta bed is under that pine tree and grancy greybeard tree...It is really growing.. The hill you see is Overflow Hill... I live in the Delta..Should the Mississippi River flood her banks, this is the first high ground for many of us..Ha I dont know why I threw that info in there..It runs for miles tho A natural levee (I bet Cindy knows)
very nice containers, Terrye and Elaine! Your flowers and veggie garden are looking good, Kathy Ann--I think I commented on your photos on Facebook.
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.
Ahhhh you are right Terrye that is exactly what it is now I remember getting that at the RU - Thanks! I at least like to have some idea what things are out there. Anybody here have a sweetspire? I bought one (on clearance) at Lowe's last year and it is just about to bloom, I am looking forward to that.
Everybody's flowers look so pretty!! I love the clematis and rose combination. I planted a blue clematis on one side of the new arbor and a red climbing rose on the other. I'm hoping to have something like yours Terrye in a year or so. They have really taken off this year.
This iris is Flopsy. It just opened today! I really like it. I bought it because it was so unusual!
Does anyone know what this is????? I bought this at Rita's. There are several things I bought at Rita's that did not have a tag and I didn't find out what it is. I have a couple of other things I need to take photos of and see if anyone knows what I have.
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.
Marilyn I found the grass at Home Depot. It is not hardy for our zone. I think it is zone 8 but I thought it was really neat. I like the way it moved.
I looked up Pure Water and it looks just like mine!
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.
I really love that this year everyone is contributing photos. I go back and look at them again. Yes it is very comforting to walk around your yard and remember who gave you a plant. i have so many friends in my garden.
Terrye you have a beautiful collection of clematis. Charlotte you seem to have one of everything. I love that La. Iris. Funny about names. The Great White Hope La Iris is purple. I think this is Professor Neil if not it is Professor Jim.
Cindy, when the weather clears up a little more, I will go outside and make a list of the iris which you gave me at the RU at Kim's last fall. If you need a start of any of them to replace ones that you have lost, I will be more than happy to dig up some rhizomes for you.
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.
Sharon--correction--my iris were beautiful, now all the bloom stalks are on the ground. I am glad I made pictures the other day, cause it is a mess now.
Bonnie, my Hearts A Bursting do not have any blooms on them-they must like it at your house better than mine !
mine are too, so much rain ands uch squishy ground, I shopped off some blooms today cause they were pulling the whole plant out of the ground. I hate that. had to replant some also. I sunk to my ankles in one spot in the back garden
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?
I have some new irises blooming today. This first one is Judy Mogil and the picture just does not do it justis. It is very tall, taller than the other irises. The bloom is also very, very big! Can't really tell that in the photo.
Beautiful, Charlotte! That Oasis Shooting Star is certainly aptly named! All of my iris that were blooming before the storms over the week-end have lost their blooms, thanks to the hard rain. I do have one purple iris that is blooming today. I will go out and get a photo of it later.
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
Yes, but there is no way I can have 5 cats inside the house--Kit is used to the dogs and goes and comes as she wants to.
Is there any thing sweeter than a kitten ?
I wrote on my blog today about the Miracle of life--it is so amazing to me, but she was created and knew everything to do, she has never been around other cats, but she knew what to do and she never even cried once.
Bonnie thanks for posting the pics. I now have a better idea of what to dig when I come out Saturday.
I still think Sandra has the better Blooms so far. I think I have some like that, but have no idea where the mother cat has moved them.
Charlotte - are your passion vines in total sun ? I have one that barely gets going by the time the season is over, but I have it in shade (as I don't have much sun).
KA - those 2 iris' above have your name on them as they multiply . . . I haven't forgotten, so Kenny, if you get them - you have to share them with KA. lol.
Charlotte, what do you do with your passion vines in the winter time? I have one that's hardy and comes back for me , the incarnata, but it grows wild, and I don't put any trellis on it, it' just lays on the ground.
Kathy Ann I'm planning on leaving them out. I ordered them from Brushwood (is that right, at least something close) and I tried to really study the different passion vines. A lot were not hardy for our zone but I found some that are supposed to be hardy in 7b. I guess I will find out next spring! LOL
Cindy I think you are right. I got to looking at it last night myself and thought that doesn't look right. I guess I planted a clematis and the passion vine on the same trellis! LOL Can't remember what i've done!
Charlotte, you are like the rest of us, we have so many plants in so many places, we just can't keep it all straight
Kenny, if you had kept your Mamma Kitty in the house and let her have her babies on your love seat--you would know where they are--LOL.
Kit spent a lot of time outside lately, so we thought she might have them outside, but no way - she never even asked to go out the day they were born.
Bonnie, your iris are beautiful--the storm put most of mine on the ground and they are still there. I am going to make some more pictures of the glads you like today, they are beautiful now.
Not to worry Marilyn - my intent is not to bring anything home! lol. We will see. lol.
I may even gather up some yard art that I don't use anymore and see if anyone wants it. lol. I have got to get rid of some stuff somehow.
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
LOL, speaking of turtles, Darren and I planted all those crepe myrtles out front today and we found a baby turtle. it' was so cute. I brought it down to the creek beside our house. I didn't know you had 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.
