Great shot of the BF's ya'll. I can't seem to capture them.

Does anyone know what this little thing is ? I got it from Rita's. I am sure it is an annual. It sure is cute "in bloom".

(edited to say - can't believe this is so blurry when I have my glasses on.lol)

Bonnie thanks for the tip on the diluting the ammonia. I probably need to do some research before I just go out and spray.

I agree with Kim it is some type of fushia. I bought the most beautiful hanging basket of fushia (Condor) at this little place in Sheridan for next to nothing and almost promptly killed it!! I discovered later the girl had mispriced it. It went back later and they had finally put up signs with prices and the fushias were about twice what she charged me for mine. But anyway the container they had it in let the water just got straight through - I mean none lingered for a minute. I changed containers and moved it to a shader location and it is still alive and putting out new growth. But certainly nothing like when I bought it.

In the early Spring of 08 I would have said no I don't have trouble with bears..
but since later in Spring i'd have to say YES I have bear problems...
in the past 2-3 weeks they've been here at least 4 times that I know of...
The last time... one tried getting into Gary's tool box on his truck...scratched the cab a little
Guess he needed some tools to fix something...LOL

That little gray kitten is just too cute. It's got to be tempting to keep that one. I have always had a weakness for blue colored cats.

Sandra, that big unmarked iris in front of the building I told you about is a LA iris, but I have a variiagated one in that bed too that is doing well and it is a Jap Iris. Gets full sun and no watering all summer. I may have to move all of mine out there! Bonnie, I'm like you, I have no luck with the JI. Maybe I pet them too much! lol

That Manzurin is a beauty!

The monardas should start blooming any time now. this is the rose scented didyma, only that one bloom but soon others.

we've had so much rain, I've had to dig up two sedums and repot them and one of them was the purple emperor I had to dig it up last year also and cut off the rot and reroot them, finally got sandra to give me some of hers now hers is rotting. I hate this rain.

we worked in the veggie garden for a couple hrs tonight, laid down some more blk plastic and replanted the cucumbers, (seeds) the plants I set out didn't make it, and we planted more squash and more zipper cream peas, now the garden is full and there is no more room except for some fall squash which I 'll plant in July. I have baby green beans about l/2 inch long LOL

I don't have problems with deer eating my stuff..we have an agreement..you can eat my grass and weeds..but leave my flowers alone...if you do then I won't eat you...
maybe you need to go out and talk to them..LOL
The Bears broke lots of my lilies last year trying to get to the birdfeeders..
So I moved the feeders out of their reach and hoping they stay out of my beds this year..
out of my yard would be better..no agreements with them though..but I won't be eating the bear meat...LOL

Bonnie I love that Westbourne daylily!!

Sandra that gray kitten is just too cute! I'm like Terrye I think I'd have to keep that one. Love the black edging around the ears.

I've been out all day. Didn't mean to spend the whole day as I have a lot that needs to be done inside. But once I got started I just kept going. I got most of my stuff potted to take to Kathy Ann's the 5th. I have created a lot of work with the brugs as they all need to be repotted now. Moved a bunch up to a larger pot and fed with Miracle Grow. I'm already finding lots of buds.

When Marilyn, Cindy and I went to Paul Michael's in Monroe I bought a round glazed pottery ball that was broken. It was marked way down and it didn't matter to me that it was broken. Turned out just a round piece sort of like a lid was broken. So I just took the broken "top" off and planted the inside with hardy fern. It didn't really have a hole in the bottom but a spot was not glazed and looked like sort of a hole. So I poured some water in to see if it would drain before I planted in it. It didn't take but just a few minutes for the water to drain out.

Sandra - how old are the kittens now ? They only get cuter and cuter. I'd take them all if I didn't have a mean dog next door that kills everything.

Elaine - I can't believe you are just now having an issue with the deer in that bed. I had one out front of daylilies too, and have been trying to get it moved in closer to the house because I never saw the blooms. Its like once they know they are there - they just keep coming back for them and even get braver and braver when you are around. That must be some yummie food for them.

KA - what can I say - just amazing. I would have to take 2 days to see your whole yard. There is just so much. Your Jap Iris' are breathe taking.

Thank you Bonnie, it does make me smile when I see all those beautiful blooms.

The deer seem to leave when the grass is in abundance, they head for the veggie garden LOL they haven't messed with my daylilies in a while. no hoofprints in the gardens any more either. I'm glad, I would not stand for those deer eating my plants LOL

Elaine I have this mix I use and I spray it directly on to the plants and it keeps the deer off the hostas and daylilies,

I use garlic, hot sauce and milk and eggs and rosemary essential oil all mixed and put in a spray bottle. I have cut out the eggs and use half water/milk strain out the garlic pieces. it keeps them away . I think I could use the rosemary eo and water and it would work just as good. that stufff is stanky!

Yeah, I'm kinda surprised the deer just found this bed too. So far they have left things alone that are next to the house...probably the dog scent keeps them away. I'm going to try some spray before I totally give up on daylilies in that perennial bed. They munch on my hosta, especially the Sum & Substance, the camelias, and in the winter they totally clean the Indian Hawthorne leaves. I'll have to post some pics of our veggie garden, or Garden Fortress, as I'm calling it. It is all-out war this year as I didn't get a dozen tomatoes last year. Deer cleaned me out of almost everything. I sprayed every week with that deer repellant but after a couple of weeks, they just kept coming back for whatever was left.

The Garden Fortress. DH put up a double row of fencing. Somewhere he read about how deer don't have depth perception, so the fence doesn't have to be tall, just give them a visual 'barrier'. So far so good. It is not electrified although he used the fencing because it was easy to put up and take down at the end of summer. I've also been using fungicide on my tomatoes and they are beautiful.

Oh KA - I hate I am not at work today and can't pull all of your pictures up. It would take me forever here with dial up. I did pull up a couple and I guess I didn't realize you have such a wide range of beds everywhere. Like I said - I'd have to spend 2 days with you to really get the full effect. Just so much to see.

Charlotte - you are doing very well with all your daylilies. Just to think you didn't have that many a year or so ago. Meant to say earlier that I love what you did with your fern in your new pot.

Elaine - your vege garden is awesome ! My DH would love it if I'd do something like that, but I haven't figured out where would be a good place for one in my yard. Something would have to go, and I'm not willing to let go of anything yet.

LOL - my little garden buddy.
Funny Kim - I'd love it if you could get one of these dogs. You are right Sandra - no amount of money could take her away from us !!... but I think she would have jumped in KA's car and gone home with either her or Kim. She loves their energy !!

ThanIks, Bonnie. I must have my veggie garden. You have to know we have acreage, so I have plenty of room for gardening. You could always try a small raised bed with a couple of tomato and pepper plants and mix some herbs and annuals inw ith them. I always overdo it on tomatoes...mainly because I start most of them from seed. This year is sort of an experiment with the fence. I didn't plant any okra or beans because the deer have always feasted on the plants about the time they start to bloom.

I love your garden buddy!

Charlotte, I also meant to say something about your 'find' with the pot. Looks great with the fern.

I bought one of those garden journals that person is selling on dg this past spring in hopes of trying to do just that KA and I haven't logged the first entry in it yet. :-( Have great intentions, just don't do better. I did try to gather all the plant receipts I could find and put in a notebook, so I'd at least have some way to check back on those. Just can't find where I got that blasted Iris that we can't verify.

That is an excellent idea Elaine. I do think I'd like a small raised bed to begin with. We have so many trees on our property that the only sun areas I have are being obsorbed my daylilies right now ;-) But I may have an area that I could put a small raised bed, maybe. Hmmmm. Now you have me thinking about next year.

I forgot I also got some day lilies from Karen. She gave me Sammy Russell and Hyperion and a few others. I think I got the Sammy Russell tag on Hyperion.

Yeah, my coneflower that is "labeled" Coral Reef is finally getting buds. I am anxious to see if the tag between it and Tomato Soup got swapped or if I just got the wrong plant and have 2 coral reefs now. It is just beginning to bud so guess I will have to wait a few days to see! I have GOT to get some pictures of my DLs... we basically wasted the day because the guy rented us the wrong type sander and it wouldn't do what we needed to the HW floors ... finally got he machine changed late this afternoon when he got back into town and so maybe we can make some progress tomorrow afternoon and Monday! Little hope of getting finished this weekend now though!

I am thankful I am able to work Sandra,don't know anything different, but it really gets OLD having to work EVERY holiday weekend because our to do list is always longer than what we can get done! And no, my back is not doing better... in fact it has been a lot worse this past week. I am eventually going to have to go Alex's doctor about it. I had really thought my knee was doing some better until this morning I had to get down on my knees to clean out the dog cage and I was fine until I went to get up...and the pain was unbearable. That is the problem with the knee when I move it just right the pain goes from 0 - 10 instantly and I can't pinpoint which movement or movements cause it! Oh well, if I manage to get these hardwood floors redone and the new flooring down in the kitchen and laundry area it will be a major accomplishment considering it is hard to bend over and nearly impossible to kneel down! :)

MAYBE I can get some pics tomorrow! I am enjoying all of yours!

you have blossom end rot on them, not enough calcium in the ground. you can put powdered lime on the ground and mix it in , by the roots of the plants, or water it in, the blossoms that have set fruit already, you can spray a spray on that you can get at lows strictly for blossom end rot, it has to be sprayed on the blossoms but you'd have to read to see if it would help the fruit by spraying it directly onto the fruit.

WE put powdered lime in our holes when we plant the tomatos and don't usually get any blossom end rot. it will ruin all your tomatoes .

I appreciate that and I didn't put any lime in the holes but will sprinkle some around each plant and water it in. Thanks KA!!! You may not have saved the day but maybe a tomato or two!!! LOL!!!!

You helped me too KA. One year every one of my tomatoes had that. It really discouraged me from raising them in the pots again. Now I know. Should have asked you in the first place.

I may have this confused, which would not be anything out of the ordinary--I am thinking that lime spread this year, will not help this years crop, but will help next years-am I right or did I dream this up one night when I ate chocolate before bedtime???????????????????

powder lime, is different from the pelletized lime, lime you can get at walmart and lowes is activated as soon as you throw it out, the lime you get at the feedstores that's more peletized, isn't activated for about 6 months. you have night mares when you eat chocolate too ha? LOL
Make sure you get the agricultural lime and not the pelitized lime.

Jeri, KA answered absolutely right about the blossom end rot and what to do. I have a 'Tumbling Tom' cherry tom in one pot and a 'Husker Cherry' (slightly larger cherry) in another. Neither are prone to BER but I also use powdered garden lime and also have used a little of the spray this year. If you use the pelletized, put it out this fall and let it work its magic before next spring.

KA your gardens are just amazing. It's like somebody planted almost every variety in one yard! Do you have any Monarch larvae or chrysalis on your Milkweed?

Just now seeing the monarchs coming around and laying their eggs, so i'll have cats soon. last year I didn't have many flowers before they ate the the plants up. I have been very blessed with my gardens, I'm trading now with the big wigs LOL nurseries. I was blessed with a gift of japanese iris last year by a member here, although hers won't bloom this year, and I did a few trades and received a good many of them. I have about 60 now.

still trying to get it full enough so the weeds don't have room to grow.

So far i've not bought any of them, I would like to buy some of those graywoods japanese iris, they are by far the most beautiful i've ever seen. but high dollar. need to sell some soap first LOL and make sure danny has enough work for a while ;0)

This is a plant that had lost its tag earlier in the season that I was inquiring if it was Limelight salvia - and someone thought it was Honeybee Blue agasthase ? Is that what it is?

Gen2026, my Golden Jubilee Anise Hyssop (last year) looked very much like your plant in question above, so I recognized it right off. I'm pretty sure it's an Agastache in that case. Here's one of my pics from last year's Anise Hyssop for comparison. I really miss that plant -- when crushed, the leaves smelled just like Licorice!

My red and yellow marbles 4:00s were 6 - 10" high as the others were barely breaking thru the surface... no idea why ... but they sure are beautiful. They are my favorite 4:00s and the solid red bloom that it occasionally throws is really beautiful... if ONLY you could isolate just the red ???

So, KA, so you think that is Golden Jublilee in my photo? I THINK i purchased that from Bluestone last summer... I just need to look up my records!

Last pic for now. Jessica just got picked up by a friend for a week at the lake, so now I have to get back to my flooring project... Here is what I thought was Mary Todd from Karen, but I guess I looked at the tag wrong because it doesn't look anything like the Mary Todd that Charlotte posted. I will look again later... It is a small bloom but very pretty...

LOL you need picassa so you can turn your pics around, I have just recently learned that I can do that. and I love taking the long shots sideways and turning them around in picassa. turns out to be a good pic.

looks like some sort of shasta daisy

it's really hard to tell in the sideways photo, if your leaves are chartruse color like the color in phyllis's photo. then you do have golden jubilee, I just can't tell the green leave color is too close to the blue fortune color to tell. let me go take a shot ofmy blue fortune then you can tell if it looks like mine or phyllis's

Genna I just looked up Mary Todd to make sure it was right and yes it is a yellow lily. I've been trying to keep a photo record of my day lilies so when I go out to photo I take a piece of paper and pen with me and then write down each one I photo. I write them down in the order I photo so when I unload my camera I know which is which. I transfer to my day lily file every day.

Charlotte, where did you get 'Bama Music'? I love that, but then I love anything that has 'Bama' in the name, LOL! I have a Bama Belle which is a later bloomer. Similar but Music looks a little more lavender and Belle is a bit more pink.

Here are a few shots from this morning. We've had so much rain, some of the DL blooms got beat up pretty good yesterday.

Charlotte, I looked this morning before heading out and I believe my DL is Mary Reed instead of Mary Todd. I just got the names confused! I took some more pics this morning... I will try to get them posted later. I had some new ones bloom out and my perseus sandals has 9 blooms open at one time today! It is a sight to see, but I had hoped it would spread them out over more time!

Kathy Ann did you recognize my monarda??? I am fairly certain I got it from you...it is a very dark red and stands 3 - 3.5 ft tall... yours may be taller seems like my stuff doesn't get as tall as ya'lls - maybe because of the sandy soil??

I honestly don't know which monarda that is. at one time I had jacob's cline but don't believe I gave mine to anybody but marilyn before it bit the dust. she gave it to alot of folks though, including giving some back to me.

I have crambridge scarlet and gardenview scarlet monarda also I gave away some of those and their red. it's just hard to tell

you know what monarda is beautiful! that panaramic red shades. it's georgious with all the diff colors going at once.

I hope that it will multiply enough soon to be able to trade it some... last year I only had 2 blooms but this year it is loaded!

I haven't officially met Coach Chambers yet, but I went to almost all the spring practice sessions and I can tell I really like his attitude and style. We still have one coaching position open and I am hoping they find another good one to go with him... it will bring a nice change to the football season for sure!

Hope that my hydrangeas get like that someday... I just love the old fashioned ones!! have some on my table right now that I picked from the old home place down the road... the day I dug some of the byzantine glads.

This is a westborne unnamed seedling...

I wish we had some turkey in our woods near our house... I have inquired about trying to stock some but they say it isn't possible...? Would love to have some quail too...

This is my Mary Reed from Bonnie. Thank you Bonnie!

Beautiful... that must be your friendship bed! :) All my beds are that way! I have only recently started trying to label not only what the plant is, but WHO I got it from... wish I had started out doing that and keeping BETTER records... just not enough time to do everything that I would like to do!

Yeah I didnt do to well with keeping up with who gave it to me..I had so much stuff when I got home that day.. It was late and I was trying to get it in the ground.. if they labeled it then I know..

Now I hope you guys enjoyed the pictures.. My wave petunias have really filled in but i guess I have to wait to show you now because during the rain the other afternoon I laid my camera down when I was weeding around the irises and forgot to pick it back up.. I was shopping at walmart before I thought of it again by then the rain was coming down...Maybe when my lil tax refund from the state gets here I can get a new one..Tho I sure didnt intend to spend it that way.. I was dreaming of spending it on some beautiful blooming flowers.. Sigh... I guess now im back to begging.. lol Hope you guys have a great evening.. I have to go cook.. Trish Sorry for Hi-jacking the thread on the last night..

Your blooms are beautiful Trish - glad you posted! We have missed you! Are you going to KA's next weekend? That would be a good way to fill up your want list... I am not going to be able to make it though!

Have a great evening everyone!

Trish and Genna enjoyed all the pretty blooms.

I spent my day inside...yuk! But it had to be done! I've been cleaning out so I can actually clean house. I have 7 garbage bags of stuff in the truck to take to Goodwill in the morning. Then I put a whole bunch of stuff in the attic. I'm just the worst at not getting rid of things! I've got to start getting rid of something everytime something new comes in the house. Tomorrow I need to start actually cleaning.

Outside Playing I looked up my Bama Music and I got it from frillylilly here on Daves. I bought several from her through classified. I ordered it on July 17, 2009. So I guess she puts her day lilies up around the middle of July.

Genna, that is definitely not Mary Todd - I went back and looked at my pictures of Whimsical, which I grow right next to MTodd but that isn't it either. Mary Todd can not be forgotten it is one of the thickest and prettiest daylilies ever. It doesn't look like much in a picture but it is a winner for sure when you see it in the garden. Not sure what that one is in your picture but it is pretty.

Charlotte - I'm so jealous that your Mary Todd is already blooming - mine has a million scapes but no open blooms yet:(

Karen I got my Mary Todd from you!
I've been going back through my records to figure out where mine came from. Mary Todd is a really pretty one.

I remember that and while she doesn't look spectacular in a picture she sure takes center stage in the garden. I have MT next to Whimsical which starts blooming about a week after Mary Todd. They look great blooming together but I'd have Mary Todd even if nothing else was there. MT was one of the first daylilies I bought and I couldn't believe how big the bloom was but mostly how thick and heavy each bloom was. Definitely something to see and gets better every year.

Mine was Mary Reed instead of Mary Todd... just got the names mixed up. I have whimsical from you but it hasn't bloomed yet, and I thought I got Mary Todd too but I haven't located it yet. Not sure if I am missing it in the garden or I didn't get one of those. I will need to check my list where I did right down what I came home with...
