I begged for this beauty last year, Bonnie and Cindy both posted pictures of it and I just did not understand how both of them could have it and I didn't--so now I do, and it is much prettier in person than in the pictures !! She still lives in a pot--but she is going into the new bed this fall.
Thank you both !!

Darla Anita--I love this flower when it opens enough to see it--some days it is in the afternoon when all the chicken fat finally lets it open. It has had several blooms before this one but was not anywhere near open enough to take the picture when I made my rounds.

well, I'm not Kathy Ann but I know she has a "Fireball" monarda and she also gave me Jacob Cline which is red but yours appears to be not as much of a true red--more of a raspberry red. there is also a raspberry monarda, but Charlotte gave me that one. I don't know if KA has it.

This little guy was almost culled from the garden this year. I made up my mind last year that he wasn't impressive enough to stay, so he got on the ball and wowed me this year. He's a bit schizophrenic, starting out a bright red in the morning but by afternoon, he's this glowing neon pink! Who said guys don't look good in pink?

Yes, daylilies are edible. I've toyed with the idea of hosting a garden party and letting guests pick a few to eat. I hear the buds taste better than the blooms.

Crissy your hibiscus looks like either Luna Blush or Clown. I have some too and I love them. I want Turn of the Century which looks similar too.

I didn't know bee balm got 6 ft tall. What kind is it? I want one!! Mine get about 2 ft tall.

Fairy Tale Pink is one of my favorites too. I have several clumps of it--the only daylily I have multiple clumps of.

Becky Lynn is another old favorite. I just love the pinks!

that's definitely not fireball. my fireball is a diff color red than that one. it's hard to id those red monardas.

I also have a raspberry wine monarda and that's probably what Charlotte has also. I don't think there is one called raspberry red.

it's been so hot, i'm making a promise to myself never plant another plant again after june 1st, they will stay in pots till the next spring. i've had to water the new plants way too much and watering the veggie garden on top of that is really rough.

Kathy Ann, it is not really important that I know the names of the monarda--I just wondered, because it is the only one that the top leaves change colors. It is also in the shade more than the others I have, so that could be why it does that.

Bonnie, I saw your post on the old thread and I would love it if you and others have some to share. I'm about done with moving things around this summer, but this fall I'll definitely take ya'll up on that offer. I will have at least some of mine to divide and share also: Bama Bella, Ida's Magic (mine is the real deal too), some NOIDs, Barbara Mitchell, Elizabeth Salter, and maybe 1-2 others depending on how well they keep growing this year. So let me know if I need to put your name on any. I had a few DLs when we first built our house here but sorta neglected the DL growing for a number of years. No time and I was busy getting other beds with shrubs, the veggie garden, etc established. Now I'm down to rearranging and putting in things I really love. Thanks again for the offer!

Okay first of all for all you guys around here that have fairy tale pink don't forget that if you got it from me - and you may have (I think I bought 10 of them) before I knew you could grow more of them:) and shared them at the swap last year. Mine was mistagged so be sure you check it against the pictures on daves - crissy yours looks like mine so it may really be a NOID. A

ND crissy as SOON AS that triple Kwanso daylily finishes blooming you MUST go out there and dig it up - find a place for it away from all your pretties or it was mow them right down. It is beautiful in bloom but it will take over your bed and you'll be digging it out forever. Plant it along a fence or along the road but not with other plants:) Just my advice but trust me I'm digging it up as we speak!

NA to answer your question way earlier, I'm sorry I was at work and you know how that can go. I didn't know Bee Balm would get up to 6ft tall either. What's weird is one of them is 6ft and the other is 1- 2ft.
I'm trying to match them up with KA's pics and mine don't match hers, but the leaves on top do turn red just before they bloom.

I think, think, that one of them may be a Marshall's Delight.

Well guys I have been MIA since Thursday since someone at work was nice enough to share the latest stomach bug with me. I got sick on payroll day of all times - what a NIGHTMARE, trying to get my remote link to work so I could set things up from home all the while fighting that darn virus - YEEEUCK! And now I think I may have passed it along to Janie:( she went home sick today.

Anyway after that fun little event I went ahead and kept my plans to put in a new bed at my daughters house in NWA. All spring I've been buying things at the Lowe's clearance rack and dividing stuff and rooting things and getting stuff at the swap, so I wanted to show you guys the results. Here's the before and after pictures of her house. Obviously, we changed the shape of the bed. I guess whoever redid this house didn't think it was enough of a square box and thought another square box out front would help:) Anyway that was definitely the best decision of the day and bless my son-in-laws heart he drug his sleep till noon self out of bed at 6:00 am and did all the sod lifting and pounding (thank goodness for that short stint with a landscaper)

So after we took this picture we bought a clematis for her obelisk (bought for a buck at garden ridge) between the windows we planted some purple grass that is hardy and has purple plumes on it. Those are some red cannas in behind there. She has crocosmia, salvia, white and purple meadow sage, speedwell, red daylilies, a purple groundcover that I can't remember the name of, two frobelli spireas and at the corner of the house a rose of sharon (white with purple centers). around the sidewalk we planted red wave petunias for a little bit more color and to fill in some of the bare spots until things get going. They are all really small now but in a couple of years it is going to look great. Neither one of them are really into plants but you could tell how proud they were of the finished project. Several of the neighbors came by and commented on how good it looked and you could tell that made them feel good. So all in all a good project weekend:) In all we probably had less than 50 dollars in this bed but it looked like we spent a lot more than that.

Thanks to everyone who contributed something that helped make this happen

Hey crissy you left your blinds in my car at the swap the other day

And Sandra - Karen Sue hasn't bloomed yet but she has scapes so I'm waiting on her. I keep reminding my DH that this plant is my prize DL and he better stay away from it with his weed wacker/lawn mower etc. I'll let you know when she blooms

Karen I missed the blinds yesterday, look how long it took me! Thanks for the advise on the daylily. It is along a fence and in the middle of a bunch of Bee Balm, see my posts above, I'm trying to ID those Bee Balms. I should have waited til tomorrow when I could post them from work and they would post within seconds, not 20 minutes between posts.

I'm glad you're feeling better, and hoping that Janie doesn't have it. Yuk. Nice new bed, yay to your helpers!

Speaking of bed, I've got to go hit mine, worky poo tomorrow again. Blah!

Christine I gave you some bee balm last summer when you came over and gave me the brug. The tall that you are showing looks like what I gave you. It is wine and the leaves just below the bloom also turn a wine color. Mine is also tall but not as tall as yours, but mine is in a very shaded area.

Charlotte, God has taken such good care of us through this little valley. I know if it is not the right job for Jerry that something else will come along soon. Jerry has felt like his age has been part of his problem of getting a job-so he was not going to turn this one down. I told him it might turn out to be the best job he has ever had.
He has not worked since March of 08--he went to school for 2 years, so he is not in the best physical shape right now, but I know he will do whatever he has to do. He has always worked hard for us and he will not stop now. I am sure he will be just fine after a little while to get back in shape.

Sandra you are right. You don't really know exactly how a job is going to turn out until you have worked at it for a while. Sometimes smaller companies like that can be a good place to work. As you said, God has been taking care of your all and this is obviously the place he wants him now. We don't always understand the reason he puts us where he does.

I'm sure you've been on the DL forum and seen the 'ugliest DLs'! There are some weird DL blooms. Your Bright Sunset isn't ugly by any means but there are always some oddball things going on with blooms. If you need a good laugh, go look at some of those pics!

Jerry was also looking for a more specialized job too--but a job is a job and maybe he will still be proud to have it tomorrow night. I had to laugh at him-the man he is going to help is Walter, he could not remember his last name. He goes in at 7am tomorrow, but will be going in earlier in the future as they want part of his job to be opening up the plant and turning things on, so I asked what time would he get off if he has to go in early, he said--"All I know is I work until Walter tells me to go home!" Walter did tell him they would be building a work station in the morning first thing and would have to run air hoses and things like that to the new station, then he told him he would be working Sat to install a new type of fan that they are changing to. It seems Walter is very behind in his duties. They did give him his own parking place, next to Walters-lol !

Oh, Sandra, I am so glad that Jerry found a job but I just hate it for him about the no a/c. I will pray that the Lord will provide Jerry with the strength and energy he needs to get through these hot, hot days without suffering from the heat too much. All of your daylilies are sooooo pretty--there seems to be no end to the number of beautiful d/l's that you have!

I managed to get in a couple of hours of weeding yesterday morning early and also this morning. I have almost all of my RU plants in the ground, but like KA said, they are going to require a lot of watering these hot days! I still have a few more to plant and plan to do that early in the morning. If I get outside by 6:30 and work till about 8:30 it isn't too hot. I have to call it quits once the sun gets up past the big oak tree in my neighbor's yard and starts shining on my yard.
I took some photos of some of my new plants that I have gotten this spring. I should call these photos, "My, how you've grown!" I am amazed at how fast the moon vines which Charlotte gave me in March are growing up Buddy's wooden ladder.

This side-by-side photo shows the difference in just one week. Photo on the left was taken on June 7th. Photo on the right was taken today.

That "not knowing what is going to happen" feeling can get to you after a while. You know with 50 people working in that plant it has to be at least bearable. Hopefully he'll get use to it soon.

Isn't Jean Swan gorgeous. Mine barely bloomed. I almost lost her to my Lady banks rose. I forgot she was up under the bush and it almost choked her out. Death by shade! lol

What a precious photo, Sandra!

Anyway, the house I grew up in for nine years is still standing at 214 Rose St. in Little Rock, just about two blocks north of the Univ. of Ark. Medical Sciences Center. I used to fly my kite on the hill where the Med Center now sits.

My mother always hated getting her picture made. She would leave or at least turn her head if someone was making pictures. She died the year I got married and we realized we did not have many pictures of her. A couple of years ago an aunt of mine that I don't see very much gave me a few pics of Momma. One when she was seventeen. She couldn't know how much I cherish these pictures.

No,still doing the market,working the greenhouse,trying to get this acre and half in some kind of decent order. Those bricks had beed laying around for 4 yrs just a home for snakes and rats and that pathway was in too much shade to grow anything but weeds and vines and I got tried of cleaning it . Only took 2 Looooonnnngggg days and "oh my aching back" but it looks oh so much better. I'm going to buy some irish moss seeds to sow in the cracks next spring.

Started my own exercize classes on Thues.and Thur. back around the first of April and it's been going well. We get one or two new people every now and then and soon will be out of room. Just bought the Zumba dvd collection. We were all ready to try it out yesterday put my darn tv wouldn't work because the cord was damaged in transit but I have another tv so we'll start zumba on Thurs. I did a test run Mon. with the beginners tape and once I feel like I don't have two left feet,it'll be fun.

Sandra those are beautiful. I want one of all those pink no ids LOL I believe your lady neva could be Emmaus but I am not sure. I have Chevron spider, Cherokee Vision. Cherokee Vision is darker chevron. Do these ring a bell? I am loving all the blooms. It is wonderful to see every one posting their plants and gardens. I forgot to say I am off to the doc now

Weeds are taking over out in the full sun garden, I have to go out there every day and it's been rough in the heat.

Darren cut grass for me today !! I had to let go of that chore as much as I like cutting grass. I'm loosing some of my time it seems.

Sandra, you mean those daylilies all came from the same seed pod? Amazing! they are all pretty, though!
Kathy Ann, if it isn't Stone Throw's Pink do you have any idea what it is? I really like all those different monardas. I now have several more thanks to yours and Jeri's RU's. I really like your glads, too. Can you collect seeds from glads? If so, I would like some seeds from that green one.
The glads you gave me a couple of years ago aren't doing anything yet. They were behind those big hollyhocks and weren't getting enough sun. I have pulled up the hollyhocks now that they have finished blooming so the monardas and glads can get the sun they need.
Cindy: I am so sorry to learn that your back is giving you trouble. I hope that the doc was able to help you today.

I saw my cousin, Shelly, today who lives here in Cabot. She is the one who came to KA's RU with me. She has been in NW AR for four days and she said it rained every day while she was there! I asked her why she didn't bring some of that rain back to Cabot with her! We are as dry as a bone and I am having to water all the flowerbeds plus the container plants. Those tippy pot plant stands have to be watered every day right now. It is just entirely too hot for June! I hate to think what my water bill is going to be this next billing cycle! :o((

By the way, y'all, I am going to have plenty of pink and white hollyhock seeds, if any of you want some.

This is my fuchsia in bloom.

This is a little daylily I discovered blooming beneath a crape myrtle in my front flower bed today. I am sure I got this from KA in 2008. I don't know if it is a miniature d/l or if it is so small because it isn't getting enough sun.
It's not a very good pic--the sun was very bright and I was trying to shade the d/l so I could get a pic.

It is way too hot for June! What is July and Aug going to be like??? Maybe it will be a fluke and get cooler. I don't have any trouble keeping things watered. I just hate to see the water bill! I'm going to take some water out of my pond tonight and refill it. I haven't done that in a while and really need to do it now that the fish are eating. More water for the water bill! But at least it doesn't go through the regular meter - it's on the irrigation meter.

ok, I am confused. Which is Jim's phlox. the reddish phlox above which I have a tag of starfire on or the pinkish double blooms everybody's calling carnation? I know I bought a starfire phlox but I have no idea what that double flowering plant is. it's beautiful and I love it. is that what your talking about? as being jim's phlox?

this one here. so what is it phlox or carnation LOL


Marilyn, i've been cutting off the bloom stalk after the glads bloom but I'll leave them on, but better yet when I come see you in august, Ih ave the green star planted in the front and it's not doing well cause wel, I guess it's cause it keeps getting mowed down with the lawn mower. I'll dig up the bulbs and bring them to you. ;0) I love the glads, but you need to plant them super deep in order for them to not have to be staked, even when mine are l0 inches deep the booms still fall over some times, but for the most part they stand tall.

I still have lots of them that haven't bloomed yet.

I told my DD Amanda the other day when she saw him and said he was beautiful..
that no bear was beautiful..but I was wrong...He is beautiful..Tall Shiny black coat..a little on the thin side though...But I want him gone as he has no fear of humans...
I called the Pa Game Commission today and they'll have an officer contact me
but tonight when I was up on my deck another one came across the road and down to our creek
then back across the road and started into my DSD's woods..I yelled at him and he stopped and looked at me saying "DUH" not a bit afraid...and just moseyed on his way...
First one the DH got to see in 2 years that we've been back home... finally...he was abt 250-300 pounds

KA that is beautiful. It's hard to believe that everything in that bed has only been there 2 growing seasons.

I went to the pain clinic today. They have me scheduled for 3 epidurals one a week apart starting next Wed. She gave me a Toradol injection today so things aren't so bad right now. I have a disc protruding and it has two nerves that go down my leg entraped. The disc and the arthritis has worsened since my MRI in 2009. Hoping the first shot works so I don't have to go back for more.

Sandra I am trying to get up there sometime between now and the middle of July.
We bought a Geo Tracker for the Island in Boonesville thanks to Terrye and Ray. It is at their house now. I am going to fly in to Tupelo and drive it home. Got to get that shot first before I can make that drive.

Phyllis you are fortunate to be having the rain you need. It usually isn't this hot or dry here in June but this has been an unusual year for weather. The foxgloves are so pretty! I didn't know there was a purple d'oro. It is pretty, too!
Cindy, I'll be praying that the epidural does what it is supposed to do. Congrats on the new Tracker!

KathyAnn, your unknown pink plant looks like Soapwort (aka Bouncing Bet). Here's a pic of mine. I brought some to the swap, and just gave a friend the rest of it. It prefers shade, but will grow in full sun too. It creeps into everything and I've just gotten tired of it, so Beth carried it home with her today.

No the phlox is taller than bouncing bet, I have the phlox too and the bouncing bet ! The blooms do look somewhat alike though, never noticed that before, my bouncing bet is in the shade too

Oh boy, Cindy is coming ! I can't wait, so are you going to fill it up with plants for the drive back? got to break it in you know--lol
I am hoping the epidurals will help too, in the mean time I hope the pain is better.
I can't believe how beautiful your daylilies are after being under water for 3 weeks--they are surely tough plants.

Karen, I am so glad your Karen Sue bloomed for you--sometimes they don't the first year. She is a beautiful daylily, I have never seen one that wasn't prettier in person than a picture, the pictures just don't do them justice.

Remember last year, June was really hot then the rest of the summer was mild, let's hope it gets mild here pretty soon and stays that way! I'm worried about the ac bill and water bill! ACK!!!

I got more pics last night of the same things blooming

We live at the bottom of two hills so I don't get many weather pics as the clouds have to be almost directly above the house to see them. I was outside yesterday evening and it was hot, humid, and no wind whatsoever. I was taking pics of flowers and there was this huge gust of wind suddenly that cooled things off almost immediately. I looked up and saw this!

I started hearing fairly close thunder and kept telling it to come my way, it was pouring on I-30 at Mile Marker 109. The above pics was looking to the South West. I turned and looked to the South East and look at the rain! This was between my house and I-30, which driving is only 10 minutes apart.

That rain cloud was past us and going the other direction so I knew that it wasn't going to come pay me a visit. But the other cloud to the southwest was now almost on top of us but it was breaking up and the thunder had stopped. I quit taking pics because it was just overcast, then I heard something that sounded like wind. I got ready to feel better from another gust and then realized that it wasn't wind I was hearing, but a wall of rain! It chased me to the porch and rained just enough to get everything wet. Woo Hoo!!!

Crissy you are definitely a bonafide gardener now. A year ago you were running from storms. Not you are begging for one. LOL
