Terrye gave me this stained glass hosta, and lost hers, we are hoping this one will grow some babies soon, so I can give back !

Sandra your Lady in Red Hydrangea is really growing. I need to take mine out of the small clay pot it is in and get it in the ground. On the to do list. I plan to spend all day Sat. and Sun afternoon in the yard!

Kim I got the Liger iris from one of several places. Could have been the Snowpeak iris coop, elizabethtown in Dave's classified and from one other person on classified that I can't think of at the time. It it big enough that I can give you a piece. I will give you a piece this fall - don't forget to remind me.

I am reading the thread, I don't know if Terrye has seen it or not, she is planning her trip to see her sis in Chicago on Memorial Day-
You know I would love to come, but it AGAIN will probably depend on my back. I am still having lots of pain with it. I hate not being able to do things I want to do, I worked outside for a little while yesterday and really got it stirred up--by night, every step I took caused pain. It is some better today, not much though.
We had such a good time at your house, I will be crying in my soup if I miss it, just like I will be crying when Jeri's comes too--

Loving all the pics! I'm putting my hands up on the iris, too. Not many though!

Sandra, the kittens are so sweet. makes me want one ... but not for long! lol I'll come play with yours.
I'd love to go to KAs but Kelley has asked me about possibly keeping the boys that weekend so I'll have to wait and see.
My iris are on the ground too. I have a few still standing. I meant to do some trimming today but had to work in the shop.

sandra, I fuss about the honeysuckle vine all the time when I'm having to pull it up out of flowerbeds, but when it blooms nothing smells better.

Gorgeous peonies, Kathy Ann, and all the other flowers, too. Yours are too, Sandra. I think I commented on both your photo albums on Facebook.

I put some impatiens out in the new shade bed the other day and laid down some stepping stones in it yesterday. Today I cleaned out behind the shed, so that area is ready for some EE's. (Did I say this on the previous thread? I forget what I have posted where because I am posting on several threads on both DG and Cubits! LOL)

Here's a view of the new shade bed with the impatiens in it. Everything you have given me for that bed, Charlotte, is doing very well except for the fern. It looks a little sad--don't know what is wrong with it. Did I tell y'all that some critter ate my American Spikenard right down to the nub?!!!! GRRRRRR That was the most expensive plant I bought at Pine Ridge Gardens in March and it was growing good--at least a foot tall and then something ate it! The nerve!

It's not just the dust on the table tops but the dust bunnies, dirt and pine needles on the floor!!! With two adults and two shaggy dogs running in and out the back door all day, it's amazing the junk we can bring into the house. Not to mention the dirty laundry - the fact that all my summer clothes are now in one big pile on the bed in a guest bedroom and the closet is a wreck from me starting to take out the winter stuff and store. Makes for quite a challenge when I get dressed every day!

It is a hard and fast rule that only emergency housekeeping be done in the spring ! We have all winter and the hottest part of summer to do all those things-now it is play time !
We all must follow the rules on this forum--no rule breaking allowed !

Even those of us who don't feel like working can still make pictures and post them and find various other ways to "play" and not break the rules here !

Marilyn, your shade garden is going to be beautiful, it looks pretty already and when it get to growing, you are really going to enjoy it.
I have several scapes on the daylilies now. I am hoping they will get taller than the weeds, so i can get some good pictures of them.

Terrye, I remember you telling me about Kelley needing you to baby sit, I am probably not going to be able to go anyway (back) so don't change your plans because of me.
A couple of years ago, we were on the go so much that Amanda accused me of having to make an appointment to see me-LOL, I know Kelley is feeling the same way!

Some kind of critter ate a hole in one of the other blooms on Mead's Strain, which stunted it. :o((

All the flowers are beautiful. Are all the byzatine glads the same color?? I had spotted some at an old homeplace on my road and I wondered if it was the byzatine - now that I have seen Sandra's picks, I am almost certain that is what they are...

Would it be ok for me to dig some of the bulbs now? Or should I try to mark them and wait until Fall??? I am not sure if anyone mows the yard there but they are just out in the yard so if I mark them and they mow over it I will never find them...

They sure are stunning. Are they ok in full sun??

Cindy is the bulb expert--but I think I would dig and pot now, while I was seeing them, don't get arrested !!! I think there is only one color, my pictures look different as one of them by tea cup, gets almost full sun and the other is in half day shade. Soil condition affects bloom color as I showed last year with the verbena blooms.

Sorry about your pot Sandra... that fish fertilizer does have a strong smell...guess they wondered where you hid it!

How long do the byzantine glads blooms last??? I am wondering if someone has already beat me to them. I just saw them a couple of days ago and I didn't see a SIGN of them this afternoon when I came by!!! There were two different clumps and I find it almost impossible to believe that ALL the blooms would be gone that fast...?????

I wasn't planning on digging them all - just getting a start. Guess I will have to stop and look closer...

Genna, I was laughing when I read your post, being sorry about my pot--I did not tell ityet, but that pretty little blue flower I was so proud of died after that storm, I went out Monday morning and it was just laid over flat as a flitter. I guess it steamed or something after all the rain. I got one for Mamma too and hers is in her bed and still alive. So I accept your "sorry" --LOL

Terrye, Ray just thinks up the easy solution--move 50 pots into the sun room for the night--right !!

Genna, the glads open from the bottom to the top, I am thinking at least a week of blooms, but not much more than that, but they are worth it, so pretty

I have tangerine trees and a key lime and figs that are in huge pots, and they over winter in the garage , I did loose one of the tangerines this past winter cause I didn't water it enough.

but they produce tangerines in the garage during the winter time. Once my mailman tried to collect himself a tangerine while he was delivering a package, I walked out when he was about to snatch it. I told him he could have a couple. I should have slapped his hands LOL Lemons should do fine there too.

I got a box yesterday too. Woohoo.
Ok - KA and Terrye - quit blaming me for your bad spending habits !! lol :-) Your DH's won't let you come back over.

That poor lemon tree of mine. The first year I had it, I had to chop all the top off of it because it dropped so many leaves. (it WAS 9ft tall)
2nd year - it dropped more leaves and looks even more pitiful. However - she is really blooming right now. Because it is sooooo big - there isn't a big enough pot to put it in, so it requires an extreme amount of watering. That is the only thing I could come up with as to why the leaves drop so bad in the winter.

Can't wait til tomorrow. KA and Kim are out being bad today and tomorrow - me, Kenny & Jim are gonna get out and be bad.

Funny Terrye - you and I have such similar taste. I just added most of those clematis' this year too. And I actually think mine came from Donnahue's too - and Simply Clematis.

Bonnie mine is not nearly that tall! Mine is about 3 ft tall. It does dry out quick. I need to repot mine this year. I think it is totally root bound and if I put it in a bigger pot I bet it will grow better and not dry out as quick.
My little greenhouses stay really humid during the winter because it doesn't have any kind of vent and I keep it shut tight to make sure I don't lose any heat. I have several things that I have decided like those conditions. I had a tropical fern (variegated leaf) that I have been putting in the little greenhouse and when I would bring it out in the spring it didn't look much different than when I put it in. But this year I decided to put it in the storage room in the garage. The room has a window and I kept it heated all winter. I kept a thermostat in the room to keep track of the temperature. That fern dried up deader than a door nail half way through the winter. I also kept it watered.

You know Ray knows who to blame. He just shakes his head at me. He also has no idea how much I spend and we are going to keep it that way! But I have dialed it back this year.

I said I am not getting anything that has to be wintered over but that lemon tree is very tempting just for the smell. Does it bloom off and on all summer or is it a one time thing in the spring?

Simply Clems has some nice ones too. After I got mine in the ground this morning I walked around seeing where I could put a few more. I'm still saving a place for the big O. We'll find it someday.

Marilyn thanks for the name - I knew they had one and yes that is what they look like except of course they look cheaper:) I'll have to use that name obelisk in a sentence every day so I can remember it.

Genna I know I loved those - I got them at the MG plant sale for $1 each - right now I am trying to figure out why oh why I only bought 4 of them. Those clematis will be growing like crazy before you know it. Have you read that it is best to bury them deep in the ground (if they are sprouted - not the bare rooted ones). I covered this one last year with about six inches of dirt and I can tell a tremendous difference this year - plus I cut ths one back to the ground even though it supposedly blooms on old and new wood but it didn't seem to mind the hard pruning so we'll see.

Here's a picture of my sweetspire - I had never heard of this bush but it was on clearance last year so can a clearance bush really be bad? It supposedly will take full sun to full shade and gets pretty big - I kinda like the way it looks in bloom so we'll see how it looks as time goes by.

Karen I found some really good deals on some things at the MG plant sell this year too. I found a nice size hardy begonia for 2.00. There were 2 of them and I was going to get the other one but a lady that was not an MG and you could tell knew nothing about plants saw me pick it up and picked up the other one before I could get it. (I had plants in my other hand) She asked one of the ladies working what it was and she ended up keeping it. I wanted it!! I got a really nice size sango palm for 5.00 and it is already putting on new fronds.

Pretty lily! I like those ditch daisies what ever they are!
I worked in the yard all day today. I finally got everything planted in the back. I got all the azaleas pruned, but I still have a bunch of holly I need to prune. I have to get the holly pruned this week, if I don't it will get totally out of hand! I still have a lot of just picking up and cleaning to do in the back. I didn't do anything in the front. Need to work on it next. I don't have as much to do in the front so I'm trying to get the back all done first. Will send pictures when I get through
I have several scrapes on lilies so hopefully I will start having blooms soon.

Bonnie, I've enjoyed my roses this year too. I am not good with roses so I go for the ones that need less care. Sometimes it's still hit or miss with them. Even the Knockouts. My double reds look great and then my Rainbow looks pitiful. Go figure...

Love that clematis. MY little digger that got in the pot th eother day also dug up two of my clematis and a new varigated iris I had put out. Now I'm wondering if it may be an armadillo. Whatever it is I may have Ray sitting up with the shotgun if it keeps it up... lol

I just posted on the chat thread cause I couldn't remember where somebody asked about 'Ditch Daisies'. My wildflower book says they are 'Oxeye Daisies'.

We were driving out of the driveway yesterday afternoon and saw a covey of baby quail scooting across the grass. They were so cute!

Everyone has beautiful flowers--I am so glad some of you are enjoying Gunny's rose.
They had to move from the old home place where we were raised when the termites took it over,Mamma and Gunny and Granddaddy all went in together and bought the house where Mamma lives now. Of all the flowers that Gunny had, altheas, verbena, roses, brides wreath, iris--this is the only one she dug up and took to the new house.
It was her favorite, since it is a monthly rose, so she chose it from all her flowers to take.
I will take cuttings again in Nov--- God willing-- and try to root and spread more of them about.
Jerry cut a bouquet and took to his Mother yesterday and it was so pretty, he had all Gunny's roses and one red Mr. Lincoln in the center for her. He said she loved it.

This "container" is a door prize which I won at Debra's RU in May, 2008. Cathy (catspower) brought it to the RU. I brought it home and put it on a shelf in the garage and forgot about it. I found it recently and decided to get it out. I put some matting stuff in the bottom to hold dirt and then put impatiens in it and hung it on a limb on a tree in the new shade garden. When the flowers start growing and spilling out over the basket, I think it will look really pretty!

Wow Marilyn - your yard pictures continually amaze me of how much they have grown and filled in. Just beautiful and love all your roses. Really LOVE that door prize you got. Wonder where she got that at.

Terrye - I would think just dropping the moth balls around the plants in the pots and/or beds would be enough.

My poor Gunny's rose has been moved so many times trying to keep her protected that she has had such a slow start. Seems everytime I move her, she goes into shock and has to recover so badly.

Thanks, Bonnie! Cathy told us she made that door prize. It would have taken some work to do it but it could have been done by soaking the vines, getting them soft and then weaving them into that shape. Years ago(many years ago) when I was in Girl Scouts, that is the way we made baskets for one of our badges. Of course the material we used was much thinner and easier to work with.

Marilyn your garden looks enchanting!! I love those rocks around your beds... where did you get them they look old and worn like they've been there forever. The rocks around my pond came from my dad's grandparents old home place which is through our field, apparently these were part of the chimney on their home. I love them partly because like yours they look ancient and like they've never been anwhere else and partly because of the history.

I love that purslane--that is beautiful, wonder if it is as prolific as some of the others?

I am doing about the same, Jerry took me plant shopping today and it wore me out. We went to a wholesale place that has been in our county for several years, but just this year started opening to the public on week ends.
I got another ansomia that is Blue Ice, the leaves on it look like a phlox, do you have that one?

Beautiful photos... congrats on that DL Sandra! Now the season has officially started. I thought I might have one bloomed out when i got back, but not quite yet! I do have a Tomato Soup echie from last year's coop that is blooming and I was excited about that ! That extreme June heat wiped out most of my echie plugs last year - but I think I have 4 left - the tomato soup is the only one that has bloomed so far! No time to get a pic today because I was trying to get everything in the ground. Didn't make it though because we kept having t-storms!

Love the foxgloves! I saw some at doug young's that I wanted to get but the sprinklers were going on them and I thought I would get one later but never got back to them!

Sure did miss not getting to see ya'll...Sandra, hope you are feeling better. I have had a LOT of pain with my back tonight and I am already ready for it to go away!

Sorry to hear that you were having back pain, Genna. Hope it isn't bothering you today. Sandra, I've never had the kind of back problems that you have but Buddy did and I know how it affected him. Chronic back pain is a real bummer! :o((

Pretty pictures, Sandra and Kathy Ann.
Karen, love the black and white with the dark background that you made out of KA's rose photo. How do you get the leaves out of the background? I've never tried that.

My next door neighbor told me we had a lot of rain here while I was at the RU. My back yard is still waterlogged! but the weeds loved it! I think it rained weeds--my beds were fairly weed free when I left on Thursday and now they are full of weeds again! :o((
I took a few photos this morningl These are the hollyhocks that were in the photo of Kathy Ann standing beside them which I posted last week. They have gotten even taller since then and started blooming while I was away. The one on the left is pink and the taller one is white. The hard rain yesterday beat them down somewhat.

Tiki Torch close-up

I think Karen asked me about the moss-covered rocks that line my flower beds. Those came from some other property which we used to own in Faulkner County, Arkansas. Buddy picked up every one of those rocks and loaded them in the back of his pick-up. Of course, when he got them to the house where I live now, he had to unload every one of them and place each rock where he wanted it to go. It really took a toll on his back but he was determined to get it done and he did! Gotta love a man like that and I still do and always will!

yes it is under accessories there is a little eraser there I just use that to remove the background (I'm sure there is an easier way but it escapes me at the moment) you have to blow it up under view~custom then I choose 800% to do the edges. Then just set your color to black at the bottom and use the paint can to fill the background with black.

There are some other programs that will remove the background for you but I don't have one of those:(

crissy: in Picasa when you click on a photo you want to view in the larger mode, when the larger view comes up, to the left of the photo at the top you will see 3 tabs: Basic Fixes, Tuning, Effects. To get the black & white feature, click on effects. You can play around with the different things on all 3 of the tabs to get the photo the way you want it to look. It's easy! You should make a copy of the original photo before you change it to black or white, etc.

Here's the b&w version of my rose; now I am going to try to do what Karen did and edit it even further in paint.

Whoa, I started erasing the background and it was going to take me forever to do that, Karen! I had the photo blown up and thought I was just about finished but when I set it back to regular size, I had only done one small corner. I need to crop the photo to just a square or a rectangle around the rose blossom to eliminate some of that.

Okay select the freehand crop tool (1st one on the left uppermost corner)

Hold down your mouse key and go around the actual flower

press ctrl-x you will see the background of the picture minus the part you cut out

go to file-new and don't save the current picture when the blank canvas comes back up press ctrl-v to paste the flower onto the white canvas

It should look like this

One note be sure the canvas is large enough to leave room on all sides of the picture - you can do this by clicking on the canvas corners and pulling it out bigger BEFORE you paste in the cropped image - don't worry about getting it too big you can always crop it down.

Then make sure you have selected black on the color chart then using the paint can fill in the background with black

Now you should see this

Now blow it up and finish the edges - of course the closer you get on the cropping the less work you have to do.

You can also use the box tool left-hand side the one that says rectangle when you are on it with the mouse to get rid of large chunks of the border before you start to clean it up.

On my way out the gate headed to wrok this morning, I had a nice surprise waiting for me as my first DL Witch's Wink had a bloom waiting on me. It was a pleasant surprise - but no time to go back for my camera!!

I like those torch lilies too. I tried those once about 3 yrs ago - but I killed it. Guess I need to try again!

Edited to say that Marilyn, I would love to trade Tiki Torch for Tomato soup...as soon as mine has a chance to multiply. No idea how long that takes since it was just a plug when I planted it last year - and right now it only has one stalk on it. Those i planted last year are the first that I have been able to get to live (and only a small percentage of them!) ...how long does it normally take for them to be large enough to share????

I got back from Chicago and have scapes everywhere! My Stellas are blooming and I have one other DL blooming already (Happy Returns).

I bought a couple of climbing roses. I got them in the ground today and potted up everything else I bought. Does anyone have the Brite Eyes rose climber? That's one I got. It's supposed to be very vigorous and easy to grow so we'll see.

I had a bamboo to jump it's pot so I spent the rest of the morning digging up roots. Ray finally dug the whole spot up with the tractor and replaced the dirt. I hope we got it all. I love the bamboo. I forget the name now but it is a yellow one with crooked stems. I've had it for about 8 years in the ground in a pot by the store and it has done fine. Went out there last week and had three shoots about three feet away from the pot. Had to come out!

I have no idea how long it takes for those hybrid echies to get big enough to share. I understand they are very "precocious" and that it takes a while for them to get started good. I have had mine since the spring of 2009 and I thought they had all died but I discovered today that this one is blooming. It is a little more red in color than Tiki Torch and I am wondering if it is Tomato Soup. There is no tag with it so I don't know what it is. Last year when I had them all in pots, Friday took several of the tags out of the pots and chewed them up, so I was at a loss as to know which one this is.

I'm positive you already know this, but sometimes the PH in the dirt can make flowers change colors. Maybe that's what happened???

Marilyn... not sure which cone that is, but it is not Tomato Soup... because it has a different shape. It is probably one of the sunset, sunrise, etc ...series...

Here are the big sky series sunrise, sunset, harvest moon, twilight and sundown, , one is salmon colored. (twilight is a redish color but the cone flower petals are at a down ward angel so you don't really (at least I don't think ) you have one of the big sky series there.

If that one you have pictured above is a new one from that coop? last year , the coop you told me about. The only true red that I know of that doesn't double up, is that tomatoe soup. yours is young and the flowers will not be 5 inches the first year or so. maybe next year. my tomato soup hasn't bloomed yet, so we can compare when mine blooms if you want to.

hot lava is red, I'm not sure you have hot lava though. I am thinking you probably have tomato soup there. I think my hot lava is blooming

Here's hot lava

another tomato soup

here's big sky series "Twilight"
http://www.itsaulplants.com/_ccLib/image/plants/DETA-33.jpg

so do you think yours looks like hot lava or tomato soup? seems you told me last year you got a tomato soup

I don't have all the big sky series, i'd like to get them though LOL

Here's my sundown last year.

Kathy Ann, I know I didn't order Hot Lava so mine is either Tomato Soup or another one. I think I have a list of what I ordered on my old desktop computer so I need to see if I can find it. That old computer is so slow that I rarely turn it on.

Bonnie your blooms are all lovely. Like Charlotte, I really like the Maltese Cross. Kathy Ann has it too.

Hopefully,Sandra will start us a new thread. This one is getting kinda long. Do we have to wait till the end of May to start a new one? :o))

Clematis Miniseeluk-the light purple is a bloom about 2 days old, the "red" under it is new. The bloom is about 2" wide. This is suppose to be a late bloomer and large flowered???? Planted last fall.

I think this is Clematis Amanda Marie. The marker is gone. Planted last fall. Blooming at the right time, but again not near as large as the description. You think it is because I keep fogetting to feed them (lol).

A very nice pic of Helix, n2birds. I can hardly wait until mine start popping! I love all the pics on this thread. Has anyone had success starting clematis? This is a new iris for me it is DECADANCE.
