Another shot of the Secret Garden, we live in a trailer, and we used to be hidden by pines on the old road, when they took 40 feet of our yard for the new road, this east end of the trailer is the only place I can sit, and not be seen from the road or the neighbors across the road--that is why it is the "Secret" Garden.

Wow Sandra - that secret garden has changed alot since I've seen it last. Guess that was about 3 years ago huh ? Don't you just love being surrounded by the woods though ? They help the feeling of being a little more secluded.

Yes, Bonnie, I was clearing out the no name daylilies from there so I could put named ones in when you were here--you should come and see me and bring a shovel.
Jerry loves the woods more than I do, that is why I never look for trees--they are all around me
Nancy Ann, China Veil is a Munson, it is so pretty, but it is a slow to multiply one, usually Munsons are better multipliers, but not this one. It is well worth 5.00 and you can probably buy it for 5.00, since it is so old.
I have had mine several years and not gotten a good size clump of it yet !

I did not feel like bending over to see the name on this one--it is a named one though

I don't think I ever told you all that I built our pergola. We had a free standing deck shaded by a very large old dogwood tree. The deck was actually built under the tree because of the nice shade. The ice storm of 2000 destroyed the tree, so we finally decided to build a pergola over it 5 or 6 years ago. It's actually has 2 levels, one that has the pergola over it and the other part doesn't have a cover. DH cannot lift or climb but he helped me hold and helped me figure out how to build it. We did have a plan. We actually hauled all the lumber home and cut and put it together. I made a pattern and cut the design on the ends of the boards. That was the most fun part. I screwed the whole thing together and somehow got those big boards up on top of the structure and after we got the whole top on I climbed on top and fastened the plexiglass stuff down. I'm not getting back up there again however. The only help we had in doing it was a handyman came and put up the ceiling fan. We already had electrical outlets behind the deck.

It's so rewarding to do things yourself and then say, "I did that!" I also like seeing how things are made, how to put them together. It's fun having the "inside scoop" on creating something.

Here is the link to my picasso album.
http://picasaweb.google.com/charlotte.perdue1/2010Daylilies?authkey=Gv1sRgCOinhOXM8_r_tgE#

This is what has bloomed so far. I do have some others yet to bloom. I tried to start with a mix of E, M and La and short, medium and tall sizes. Also threw in some spiders. I can still have room to keep adding as I will just increase the length of a narrow bed as I get new ones. But I will have to stop before I get to nearly as many as a lot of you have (4 and 5 hundred). Mine are making me very happy and I will just have to be content with the space I have.

Yes Bonnie I look back at some things and think "how did I do that". Kind of like my neighbor that is building a pond. He found a spot to get some big rocks and went by himself with his trailer. He brought home some huge rocks. A few he could not get unloaded from his trailer - but yet he had managed to get them on the trailer by himself. Somehow he had found the strenght and determination to get them on.

I didn't cut mine back. All the ones I bought last year, I kept in pots. I just took the whole pot inside and kept in a heated area. The ones I had in the ground I just cut off and just cut into two sections and rooted both sections. The top section never lost it's leaves and it will soon be blooming.

I also wanted to show this one to make a point--you need more room than this in a daylily bed, I have a hard time getting pictures, and deadheading in here, because things are so close. It makes for a pretty bed, but hard to work in and not knock the buds off. That is why the daylilies are on the outside rows of the roadside bed and other perennials in the middle of it. I can get to most of the daylilies from the outside of the bed. There are a few places where I have--made it a little wider from my edging and added some things on the outside
This is the Kitchen Window Bed--I can see it directly out my kitchen window !

Beautiful daylilies, ladies, and the other flowers, too! I really need to make a bed along the side fence on the north side of my back yard. It would be a great place for cannas, daylilies and iris. I might put that on the "to-do" list for this fall. I would have to make a built-up bed, though, to avoid having to till up the area--that's too much trouble and, besides, I don't have a tiller nor a big strong guy to do the tilling! LOL

This isn't a daylily but I have to show it off. It is the very first bloom ever on this Rose of Sharon that Kathy Ann gave me.

This is part of my driveway bed. I'm planning to try a hydrangea in that bare spot to the left. It stays very wet there so I have to be careful what I plant there.

Bonnie like that Skeesix!! It really unusual and you know me and unusual!!

Headed out to fight ants!!! I have a real problem. I've had to reset the outlet my waterfall is plugged into 3 times in the last 2 days. I know ants are getting in there again! I've had to have it replaced 2 times because of ants and it's not cheap. I put out granules a week or so ago and it seems to have just driven them to the places that didn't get granules - so I'm going to make sure I get it in those places!

We have that same problem out in the gazebo Charlotte. My DH is an electrician luckily, but he sure hates having to mess with that one !
Remember Skeezix as one you want and if it ever multiplies enough - I share it with you. Very slow producer!

I love this one... Scene Stealer. (I think Sandra gave me this one)
I tried to capture how florescent the orange throat contrast is with the pink petals. Hard for me to do, but you may get the picture. It is like the throats on these are glowing.

Everybody has such great looking blooms. I like that Meringue coneflower. I'm trying to add some different conflowers to my bed in the front so I'll have color the rest of the summer. My balloon flowers are really doing great this year. I didn't get a chance to take a picture today however. They have been there for years and for some reason they are starting out really erect - they usually flop. So I better get some pictures quick!

Bonnie I pushed the zone I guess for the Sweet Laura one..it's planted pretty deep with layers
over it of hay/manure/dirt..I've had them a long time so I think they adapted to my cold plus their in a south bed up against the house which helps too...yeah I guess they can get invasive if you let them..
I gave them almost the whole bed to do their thing..But I also dig them up and give them away quite often...I've tried a few others..but they didn't make it..the variegated one came back for 2 years but never bloomed..and now this red one I got from Texas is all mixed up...

Wow, you girls were busy, busy yesterday! I worked in the yard for a couple of hours yesterday morning and then had to come in and get cleaned up. Then I spent about 3 hours grocery shopping and visiting with my BFF, Janie. Then I went over to my cousin's house for supper. I didn't get home till almost 10 p.m. I was tired!
Anyway, so many pretty photos here--too many to comment on them all but they are all gorgeous!

Sandra, you are so correct--it is hot out there, not to mention, humid! I was out for a little bit about 7 a.m. and the humidity was already bad. Our heat index today is supposed to be between 100 and 105! Whew! Friday and I will definitely not be doing any yard work although I do need to mow the yard later this evening.

I went to Hobby Lobby when I was in Conway on Wednesday and came away with a couple of half-price items. Here is one of them:

Marilyn that is a really cute little girl. I was in the Hobby Lobby in Russellville yesterday and bought some of the tin buckets you have been making your tipsy out of. Not sure what I'm going to do with mine yet. Just thought the price was good and they had a full selection of color. I akso bought several pedestals for outside ( like to sit pots on them). I haven't noticed them in the other stores before. That's all I bought.

the Hobby Lobby in Conway was just about out of those brightly colored buckets, Charlotte, so you were lucky to find some in the Russellville store.
I also went to the Tuesday Morning in Conway but they didn't have any more of those ladies like we gave to Cindy and Jeri, either. I guess I will just have to wait--maybe they will have them again next year. They did have a mannequin lady like the one I bought in LA but it was twice as big as mine and cost the same as I paid for mine! I almost bought it but wanted to go see what Hobby Lobby had, instead.

If you have not gone out to weed yet Charlotte, let the weeds stay where they are-this is a dangerous heat warning,

Sandra - I bet your yard is breath-taking with all those blooms. I think mine is fun, but I don't have near as many as you do. Do people drive by slowly when they get in the front of your house? I went out and tilled up the bed on the left side of the greenhouse today and got 20 of the daylilies I've had in pots planted. Boy that is a good feeling. Now to get the last few from out front and then mulch. The blooms have inspired me !lol. But it was very hot - especially running that tiller.

Don't worry, Sandra. I'm going to wait to mow the yard. I was outside a little bit ago taking pictures of garden art for my album I posted on FB. I was out there for about 10 minutes and could tell that it was way too hot in the sun to be doing any work. The sun would go behind a cloud for a few minutes and the wind would blow a little and it wasn't so bad, but that didn't last very long. Thanks for caring! BTW, Jason isn't around much these days--he's living with his girlfriend in Sherwood (close to Kim). :o(( I did twist his arm earlier in the week and got him to do the weed-eating for me. His dad has a gasoline-powered weed-eater which works so much better than my electric weed-eater.
Kim, your Hobby Lobby should have some of those little boots. They came in lime green, too, and I was going to get those until I noticed that they had a huge crack in them, so I chose the blue.

I don't have any sempervivum, Kathy Ann. Guess I need to get some to put in the lady bug, then I won't have to worry about it drying out too much.

The leaves are bigger and the blooms are, too. This one hasn't bloomed yet and the ones I bought 3 years ago have already finished blooming.

My little bed has given me and my neighbors much pleasure. When I was out working this morning my neighbor came over to tell me that she walks over several morning a week before she goes to work and walks the length of bed. She said she's decided that if she ever decides to quit shop keeping she wants to raise flowers. She owns a couple of ladies dress shops.

I got some weeding done in the front this morning before the sun hit it. Then I moved to the back and got some more done. I no longer have any pots that need to be planted!!!! Everything is in the ground!

This first picture is Nathan Summer. The first time I posted it it was the FBO and it looked terrible. This is the way it really looks.

I love Piano Man, I have real wind too, but mine has not bloomed yet--it is also a favorite.
Marilyn that orange you said was a no id is fulva, the triple bloomer
http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/201/
the triple bloomer is not as invasive as the single flower bloomer, but if you have any named varieties around it, you need to move one of them, the fulva will crowd out the hybrids we grow now. They do not produce seeds, but make an underground root, which can be as far as 4-5 feet away from the mother plant.
I still grow them and love them, but at the edge of the woods, not in the daylily beds.

I bet I do too! I think I see one or two already.

When I was weeding out front this morning I discovered my Crocosmia's are loaded with buds. I've had them for years and they have never really done much of anything except put out foliage. I've had a few blooms but hardly enough to say they have even bloomed. Last fall I moved them to the front and boy did they shoot up. Bigger than they have ever been and the buds are really tall. They are going to be beautiful when they bloom.

This is my Texas Star hibiscus in the koi pond. I'm going to have to take the whole pot out at the end of the summer and divide it. I have a feeling I'm going to have a problem keeping it from falling over before the end of the summer. Note that there are also impatiens growing in the pot. No I didn't plant them. This is just the pot. I will show the top next.

Thanks, Sandra, for that information about the fulva d/l. I have a bunch of those. We dug up just maybe a couple or three of them from Buddy's cousin's yard and now there are a bunch. I will have to wait until fall to dig them up, though. I should have plenty of them to share if anybody wants them. Wouldn't you know I would have something that could take over my flower bed! Here's a photo of that bed. You can see them in the foreground with the buds on them and also in the background already blooming.

Thanks everybody. It's been a rough night and morning . Dude , I could tell was suffering lst night. some how I knew that things were wrong yestrday, he usually comes hom e in l0 minutes or so. If we had found him right away. I don't think it would have made any difference. He took his last run yesterday morning. I hope it was a good one. I kissed him good bye last night around midnight.

WE could not bury another dog, , WE let the vet cremate him, apparently Trixie's burial was pretty tough on danny and Dude was just as close to danny as he was to me. I sure missed him running through the house this morning barking at everybody's door to get attention so he could go outside. It's too quiet here today.

I planted a new one 'Duke of Earl' this spring and it bloomed it's first yesterday. I will take a pic of the new bloom today. It's much prettier. My Ida's is about to bloom. It was one of my first DLs. Oh and I love that spider, Janie Wilson.

took us 3 hrs to water the garden yesterday, and I need to water my garden this morning, my hydrangeas are sad today. Must be from not getting peed on by dude LOL

I looked through my journal and I could not find anything that looked like the spider you have in the picture named Janie Wilson, Terrye--also had this one today bloom--I am thinking it might be one of the ones you and I and Bonnie got and divided at Verona that time, it is planted where some of those were planted, it is labeled Chicago Sunrise--and it is NOT Chicago sunrise

Sandra, you might post that cat photo over on the Bug and spider ID forum. I have posted several things there recently that I couldn't figure out. There is a really knowledgeable person who answers most posts almost immediately.

Here is 'Duke of Earl'. I HAD to get this one...my husband's name is Earl. I call it 'his DL' and I think he kinda gets a kick out of it. Ordered it somewhere back in the spring and was a bit surprised it bloomed this year. . Yesterday was the first bloom but today's looks better.

Kim, good to hear from you and glad you posted some beautiful shots.

This is a view of one bed in the backyard. I have some crocosmias in that bunch of stuff with the echinacea and DLs but they have not bloomed yet. I don't know why they aren't more prolific for me. I've been fertilizing and deadheading this morning; too hot to do anything else.

what a beautiful red that duke of Earl is, I think I will go over and post the cat there.

Kim, it spreads with underground roots--can travel several feet away, while it is not as bad as the single flowered one, it can take over a space and crowd other things out.
They do not "clump" like the modern hybrids do.

Igor--I love taking pictures of Igor !!

And that one had a good tag on it 12 inches in the ground! I guess someone moved it for me. Thanks Sandra, it's in my bed that has all my older DLs in it so I'm not sure where it came from.

It's too hot to even take pictures today. I just got back from swimming. The only good thing to do in this weather except lounge in the recliner! lol I had two first today. I dived off of the diving board and slide down the slide into the water. Never had the courage to do either before. Now I am wore out and ready to lounge in the recliner! lol

My crocosmias are budding up but none have opened yet

Well, I was misinformed earlier when I said 'Ida's Magic' wasn't blooming yet. When I was out making pics I found the first Ida bloom.

I think you got a photo mixed-up, Kathy Ann. That Jacob Cline monarda photo looks a lot like a tomato plant! LOL and it wasn't thanks to me since it came from you in the first place--I was just returning the favor since you lost yours. :o))

Beautiful photos and blooms, everyone. There are so many pretty ones that I couldn't possibly comment on all of them.
Sandra, I guess I will just have to dig up all those orange daylilies this fall and plant them in my ditch, which is probably a better place for them. It will keep me from having to mow on that side of the driveway--it's a pain to mow over there anyway.
It's even too hot to get outside right now and take pictures! I hate this extremely humid weather and high temps.

Terrye, you're right. I didn't make too many pics this morning either. This one I made a couple of days ago. This end of the veg garden started out to be an herb and cutting garden. I really need to work on it, but it's been pretty this year, especially with the zinnia's starting to bloom.

No, it's still swelling. I have to keep ice on it in the evening still. Thought being in the pool might get it a little exercise without aggravating it too much.

One more. This is at one end of the other bed I posted with the cleome in front of Sedum 'Autumn Joy' and some dwarf pennisetum (which you really can't see.

I forgot who posted a photo of 'Bama Music' DL a couple of weeks ago, but I did order 3 from that grower you recommended. They came Friday and were nice clumps. Was that you K-A? Anyway thanks for the reference. Got those in the ground this morning, along with a couple of small plugs of hosta (Stained Glass) and 'Tomato Soup' echie's I ordered. They were small but looked nice and healthy.

pretty pics, there is a certain butterfly that likes to eat the leaves of that false indigo, when I got my cuttings from Nancy ann I looked that up and saw that it was a host plant for these

California & southern dogfaces, Silver-spotted Skipper (Epargyreus clarus), Gray hairstreak, Hoary edge skipper.

I hope my cuttings can root, they are hard wood, not sure if they will or not.

is this what you have?

LOL on the tomatoe plant, I had no idea I did that. those are seed pods on my yucon gold potato plants believe it or not. I had no idea they put off seed pods that looked like tomoatoes

here's the jacob's cline. hopefully I've posted the right photo this time.

I had 3 windows open posting pics at the same time LOL

Out of all my zinnias last year I have exactly two this year. I think I covered them up when I mulched or something. I hate that too cause I love the zinnias in the heat of the summer. They just keep going.

Here's a NOID I have. I keep it around because I just love this shade of purple. It's the only one I have this color.

oh ok, you said false indigo, there must be two plants with that name, LOL I know the baptisia is false indigo too. Wonder why they have two same names on two diff plants. I"m not sure of the cat on your baptisia then. the link I gave you was the cuttings that nancy ann gave me at my RU I really like that plant. it's neat looking. i've never seen any cats on any of my baptisias.

I guess having that "Kwanso" in deep shade has kept it from going anywhere. I think I have had it for 4-5 years and I have only had two new ones grow. Thanks for the info though, I may dig up and give away just in case.

I love Duke of Earl! Of course, I think all of them are lovely...I would love to have some of each but alas not enough sun.

KA, the squash and greenbeans with new potatoes was delicious!! Thanks for the goodies!

Elaine - why are you buying plants that we all have ? PLEASE... if I have something - do not buy it, just let me know. I know you are a bit far for a swap, but I'd be happy to mail you something as I am sure others would too. The best flattery is liking something well enough to "ask for it". If it isn't ready to divide - I certainly will let you know that too. Now, you have me worried about some of the daylilies you mentioned you liked.
