Pretty flowers, Kathy Ann, Bonnie, Janie and Sandra! Everyone's gardens are really starting to put on a show. I took a walk around my garden this evening and got some close-ups.

This is the pink hollyhock.

Wow - I don't think my tomato soup is a tomato soup at all ... It has a much taller middle. I had not remembered ordering one last year that looked like that but i ordered so many that I wasn't sure. Only a few have survived. I have a Mac and Cheese that appears to be doing well and growing but hasn't sent up a bloom stalk yet... and another one but I can't remember which one - maybe fragrant angel??? i will have to look. I do know that this one was labeled Tomato soup - but it must be labeled wrong. I will have to try to take a photo tomorrow and let you see what I mean.

Love all the blooms... my Witches Wink has multiple blooms on it today - just no time to take pictures because I am still trying to get all my plants in the ground from this past weekend. I didn't have much time to work before dark this afternoon because I was late getting back from El Dorado after my MRI. I have just a few more things to go and I will be finished! :)

My penstemon X mexicalli red rocks is loaded and really pretty currently... and my pink crinum is beginning to bloom as well, and lots of daylilies about ready to bloom!

Sorry, Genna, we crossed. I don't know that mine is tomato soup, either. I was just guessing because of the color. I will try to find my list of plants I ordered from that co-op last year. I know I have it somewhere.

In the meantime, here is my white hollyhock with a bumblebee in it. He/she is loaded with pollen!

Janie, I meant to say that I thought the Lady in Red hydrangea was actually one of those new red hydrangeas. I guess it isn't, huh? LOL The blue is really pretty though.

This is a coconut lime echie getting ready to open up.. I bought it two years ago at Rita's nursery in Jackson, TN. It did really well the first season but didn't do much last year. Hopefully it will do better this year. It's off to a good start.

Cindy gave me the best idea when we were at her house. When we went to Paul Michael I found a great small pot with a lid that I want to use as a plant stand. I couldn't figure out a pot to go on it and Cindy said why don't you get one of the red clay pots and paint it. Well that's what I did this afternoon. I mixed a couple of colors together to try to get it as close as I could to the stand. I wanted to seal it after it drys good and I found a spray paint that is a heavy clear glaze meant to go on pottery, etc. I plan to spray it with it tomorrow. I have a bunch of just old plastic pots that look like clay pots and I got the idea to paint some of them also. I did 2 tonight that are square and have a fluted design on the sides. They look pretty good to me! I just used acrylic paint. I plan to spray them with the glaze also. Will post a picture when I get through. If these 2 plastic pots turn out good, I have a bunch more I'm going to paint. I need a lot of decent looking pots to put my brugs in and I want something lightweight. Also I have too many to buy a lot of expensive pots!!

Charlotte, I'm eager to see what your pots look like after you get them finished! I really like that delphinium of Janie's, too. It is a beautiful blue!

here's a close-up of Tiki Torch. I bought this one somewhere last year but not through the co-op. I think I might have gotten it on sale at Lowe's. It didn't do much last year but is going strong now with 5 or 6 blooms on it and it isn't a very big plant. I have decided that those hybrid echies take a couple years to get going good.

Janie for a new gardener your plants are really beautiful.
Marilyn your hollyhocks are so pretty and no rust. Mine always got rust.

This is the new flower bed ,it has a long way to go. It also has a lot of things in it that I will take out when my next bed gets rebuilt. I just needed to get these plants in the ground somewhere for now.

Janie - you have some beautiful blooms ! So glad you are sharing them.

KA - I don't have alot of luck with Jap Iris' at all, so if I have one to live is a shocker for me, but to actually have one to bloom is quite an accomplishment for me. I only have them, in hopes to be able to share them someday.;-)

Cindy - you are so sweet...love, love your new bed ! I disagree - I think it is perfect the way it is. Are cajun hibiscus hardy for your in your zone?

Marilyn - I contemplated getting that coconut lime the other day. Now I wish I had of. That is so cute.

Thank you all for your kind words about my blooms. That means alot to me.

Sandra I love that morning glory! Also pretty lily! I have one lily that is almost open. It rained hard last night and is still lightly raining.
I bought some MG seed last fall and did some winter sowing with them. I actually managed to get some started. I was amazed as I am just not any good with seed. It is still small but has had a couple of blooms. I also got some seed from another MG when she had us over to look at her garden last summer. I winter sowed them and actually got them to grow also. They are now blooming and I need to find out what they are. I didn't write it down or either she didn't know for sure what the plant was. Will take some photos when the rain stops.

Forgot to answer the questions about the Maltese Cross. Yes, it is hardy for me. I had bought it a couple of years ago on the sale table without a tag and never knew what it was. This past weekend, while shopping at a nursery in Birmingham, they had it forsale there, so I was able to identify it. It has done very well where I have it, and is faithful to bloom every year. Cute little flowers. Not sure on how much is multiplies yet because where I have it, is pretty crowded.

no the hibiscus is not hardy for me. Not sure about the Oleanders I am 8A but it is in a protected area. They usually burn if a prolonged frost gets to them but will resprout from the stems. They are an evergreen.

Brain will not compute daylilies . I have so many lost names and can't figure them out. I am going out to see if I can get some pic before going to the doc.

Cindy, you said that your flower beds were behind all of ours but remember, yours were under water for a while so that is probably the reason they are later in coming back. I am amazed that anything survived being under water that long! I do have one smaller hollyhock that is covered in rust. If it didn't have a bunch of buds on it, I would go ahead and pull it up. I don't know why the others don't have the rust--they are all in the same area.

It's raining here today--started raining sometime during the night. I won't be working in the yard unless the rain stops but that's okay. I need to run some errands and get some things done in the house. It's hard to get motivated with house work and laundry when my garden is calling my name but the weather is a good incentive to stay inside! LOL

I have two oleanders, Genna. They die back every year but come back from the roots. I would have them everywhere if I didn't mow over the shoots that pop up away from the main plant. Mine aren't nearly as big as Cindy's, though.

I've finally given up looking for my Tomato Soup echinacea to come up this year. I guess the winter got it. I was reading all your posts above about your echie's and then I just finished reading an article in 'Fine Gardening' that came today. I had no idea they can be short-lived! To quote from the article:

"The sad fact is that most coneflowers do not live for a long time. ... You can improve a coneflower's chances for a long life by ensuring proper drainage and providing some winiter protection. But if your zone experiences a long, cold, wet winter you can probably kiss your coneflowers good-bye and say hello to a few new ones."

Tomato Soup was shown as one of the longer-lived varieties (meaning 3 years). Who knew?

Haven't had time to post any new pictures but love seeing yours.

Gee, if I had known that about them having a short life span, I wouldn't have bought any of those hybrid echies. The good old purple coneflowers, on the other hand, just keep coming back year after year. It looks like we all need to stick with those. I have plenty of them if anybody wants one that is going to Kathy Ann's RU in June. They keep multiplying.

This hosta is totally out of control. There is some variegated monkey grass having a hard time making it through the hosta leaves. There is also a variegated hosta on the left that is totally covered up with the green one.

Your Angel Trumpet border is really nice too, even without the blooms ! Love, Love astilbe !!!

I had a snowbush a few years ago. I bought it at the end of the season, and it didn't make it thru the winter, so no more for me. I do really like them though, but they do get rather large.

Ok, I got out this morning and took a pic of the coneflower that I have that is labeled Tomato Soup - but I am pretty sure it is is NOT tomato soup because of the shape of the bloom. Here it is... the color has faded because it has been bloomed out since Sunday or Monday... but you can at least see what I mean about the shape.

I agree with KA. That echie does look like Coral Reef. Here's a link:
http://www.waysidegardens.com/gardening/PD/48199/

Charlotte, your Tuesday Morning seems to have more interesting garden "stuff" than the one here in Cabot. I go back to the one up here every week and they still don't have the lady like we gave Cindy and Jeri. They don't have those frogs, either. Of course, this one up here is probably smaller than the one down there in Little Rock.

I need some suggestions for a flowering vine that will grow in a mostly shady spot. I want to plant something to grow up the side of my garden shed. I have researched the climbing hydrangea vines but those things can get up to 50 feet tall and I certainly don't need anything that big! LOL I thought about planting clematis there but everything I read says clematis need sun except for their roots need to be shaded with a ground cover or something.
This is where I want to put it. The lady mannequin looks dwarfed beside the shed so I am going to put it somewhere else. The side of the shed looks so bare that I need to plant something that will grow up the side of the shed or either put a trellis in front of it.

Charlotte, I meant to say that the obelisk trellis you bought looks just perfect there in front of your windows. It will really be beautiful once the vines start growing up it and blooming.

Karen, your flowers are looking pretty. Pretty color on that daylily.

Genna, I like that bright yellow color of your vertically challenged lily! LOL

I need to do a lot more work in the gardens but it is going to be in the high 80's and even hotter the next few days. Look like summer has arrived. I'm not looking forward to the higher temps! My gardening will have to be done in the early mornings and in the evenings. I just can't get out in those 90 plus temps!

I'm really dissapointed in those poppies, their suppose to be doubles and their opening up to lavender singles, I like them but that ebayer lied to me, and I'm upset about it.

not sure what to do, guess nothing but enjoy the poppies.

Karen really pretty pictures!

Marilyn I got the ladies in Conway. I've not seen them in the Little Rock store. I think they just recently got the frogs in Little Rock. I don't remember seeing them the last time I was in the Little Rock store. Each one is different and they just had the 3.
I think the hydrandrea vine would be great for the lattice in front of your workshop. It will take it a long time to reach 40 ft. I don't think they grow real fast. I bought a small plug at the flower and garden show this year and it is too small to put in the grown. I was given or bought another vine that I believe is some type hydrandrea vine. I am at a totally loss as to exactly where I got it and exactly what it is. No tag which is not like what I've been doing this year. I have it in total shade and it is growing great.

Sorry to hear that about the echie's too. I bought sundown at Cleggs. I have several other white swan and a pink one that I would have to go out and look at the tag. I'm keeping those in my front beds and the regular purple coneflower in the back. I got some regular purple coneflower from another MG and those things grew like crazy last year. They were way taller than I had expected so I had to move them last fall.

This is the sundown I bought.

The DL is pretty Charlotte. I counted over 30 buds on my purseus sandles this morning and one is starting to open! I am excited - last year it only had 3 or 4 blooms! but each was about 6" across!

I had some lilies in my front bed that i would have sworn were Easter Lilies that Kyle got after the evening church service for me last year ... our sanctuary was filled with Lilies and they told anyone who wanted one to get it so he got one for me... Well, it came up and then when it bloomed it was a burgandy or purply red looking lily. I am like you I could have SWORN that is where I put the white ones!

I expect to be pulling some of this next year, only have 2 plants this year, so it multiplied one times , i'm sure it will take off next year, but not sure I"ll have room for it too.
this would make a SUper nice concrete leaf.

I got this in batesville, it's a green leaved castor bean The one they had in the ground was as tall as the nursery building and was not staked, but it was protected from winds. I do have a tall stake by this one just in case.

I think the leaves are awesome looking hope to get little ticks off this LOL (seeds)

All mine are pinkish colored, bu tthey did open white.

Both of the penstemons are blooming and they both look the same. I remember now that the tag said "huskers red". I just assumed the flowers would be red. LOL

Charlotte, a couple of the plants I got were all root, too. They must have been in those pots a while!

Kathy Ann, that white hollyhock is now about 6 feet tall at its tallest stalk! I was out there today and sort of measured it by my height, which is 5',3". I figured the stalk was at least almost another 9-10 inches taller than I am. It is starting to lean over a little!

I was out on the back porch this afternoon sitting in the porch swing with Friday. I got this photo of a hummer at the torch lilies.

Kathy-Ann, you surely have won the prize this year for your blooms!! Gorgeous, every one of them.

Another thing about the coneflowers...they re-seed apparently, which is something I didn't know. The article I read said you should just let the blooms fall to the ground. And here I was going around dead-heading all the time. The plain old purple do seem to do the best for me at least. I have a few others that are about to bloom. I think one is Fragrant Angel or White Swan and the Rubenstein is doing ok so far. I'd love to try some of the Little Kim so that may be something for next year.

Cindy, I hate to ask for daylilies because they tend to die on me or disappear without a trace. I ordered 12 different kinds one year and only 3 came back over the winter...so I`m a bad plant mom for daylilies but I`ll plant them and enjoy them as long as they will last. What seems to thrive for me is water canna and water iris so I started a lot of those. That blue iris I crossed with some other iris the neighbors were growing has huge seed pods on the ones I pollinated so I`m thinking water iris seedlings. lol!'

Karen it sounds like too much water for the daylilies. Just build a mound above . your normal level and plant them a little higher. I have lots of no names after the flood so I guess if they will live after being under water six weeks they should live for you. After the blooming please remind me and i will send you a box. If they die they die. I have certainly killed a lot of things you gave me. I lost almost all my canas this year. I guess they rotted due to so much water.

Cindy, I like how that last one looks dainty. Cannas love water but if they are not water canna they will not tolerate standing water for very long especially if it is cold. I planted these daylilies in the bed that has the best drainage where the cannas are doing well and everything came back fine after this winter so that may be my answer. fingers crossed. :)

I am sooooo super excited because the majority of these will be new for me this year. I have my spreadsheet with the 76 varieties all lined up to fill in the bloom dates. I just love the daylily bloom season don't you! That president clematis has been all over my yard I bought it before I had a clue about gardening but this year has definitely been it's best - I love it on my new oblesik (however that is spelled).

Little Geisha's - got these from Gardens Oyvey. I think they are really supposed to be blue, but my fertilizer for my pinky winkies probably ran down to these. lol.

Bonnie, I know it is so pretty at your house, so I should cut the flower from it---I know that hen and chicks do that--but I don't think the one that is blooming is a hen and chick--I think it is something else.

Well Sandra - it is pretty in the pictures that I show - but this rain has really encouraged the weeds and grass to love my flower beds. :-(
I thought all of those plants in there were hen and chicks. Shows what I know.

I did too at first, but now I think they are different, because the hen and chicks usually put up a stalk with their bloom and then die after blooming.
