More of Our June Pictures and chat

Ripley, MS

I think most of us are oh high speed now--except Phyllis-and she is expecting to get it next month but lets start a new one so it will load easier with all these beautiful pictures.

I only have 5 new daylily pictures to show you today---they are still lots of blooms everywhere, but only 5 new ones. I think they have been prettier this year than ever before.

I'll start out with a Westborne Seedling that Phyllis gave me last year--she shared her order with me, I have 5 and 2 of them have buds. This is one of them

Sandra, will you please stop showing us photos of those cute kitties! It makes me want one! LOL All the lilies are beautiful and I love that phlox!
Everybody's pictures are so pretty.

I may have posted this photo on the other thread--don't remember--but I want to post it again because it is similar to Sandra's D/L above called Breathless Beauty. Mine is a noid--Buddy threw away the label when he planted these.

edited to add: I'd like to post a side-by-side photo of Sandra's D/L and mine to see how they compare. How do I save a copy of Sandra's photo to my computer?

Open it up and right click on it--Breathless Beauty is about 5 feet tall

This is the side-by-side. What do you think, Sandra? Could I have a Breathless Beauty, too? Mine is not 5 ft. tall but it is on that slope that goes down into the ditch beside the big pipe that goes under the driveway and water just runs off the slope into the ditch. My D/L might be bigger if it got more water.

I'll point it out to him, thanks Sandra. I should water it befor then too ;0) lots of sad looking babies out there today.

I'm glad this is a chat thread too LOL

I tore up the embroidery machine at work and been off work for 2 days and tomorrow's not looking good either. next week will be rough playing catchup,

Bonnie and Kim thinks I did it on purpose LOL I'll never tell. ;0)

i'm enjoying the time off for sure. finishing up the green beans

Sandra. Do you remember Miss Norma? well, I just came back from the hospital, she's had a mild heart attack last night and is having a heart cath today. we'll know what happens next after the heart cath, they'll either do a stint maybe surgery, she's a frantic mess though. she calmed down before I left.

got the house all cleaned for Bonnie and Kenny & jim, well, as clean as it's going to be I guess.

I'm off to finish the beans, and go water again.

Ripley, MS

I am sorry to hear Miss Norma is having problems, you have some payback time now, she was so good to you. I hope she does not have to have surgery. I have a bloom on my Norma Jean today !

There is some good news on the prayer thread

A Norma bloom for Norma!

KA that was yesterday evening around 7pm.

Cindy, remember when I used to run inside the house when I heard thunder, no matter how far away it was? Now I sit on the porch and listen to it. I even go outside with Dave and watch the thunderstorms sometimes. I still freak out when there's expected tornadoes though.

Ripley, MS

I like summer thunderstorms too--I like to sit outside and watch them roll in, I hope we get some rain this afternoon

Judsonia, AR(Zone 7b)

yes I know, I hope I do as good with her as she did me when I was in need.

she's got alot more time on her hands than I do. and darn, next week is going to be so hectic at work trying to play catchup. I'll manage. nothing more important than friends.

Ripley, MS

She may need you more when she is out of the hospital--how old did you say she is?

Judsonia, AR(Zone 7b)

yes, that's when she'll need the help. she's 76 I think, maybe 72. she's like a second mom to me. she thinks highly of me also;.

North Little Rock, AR(Zone 7b)

As she should, KA.

Judsonia, AR(Zone 7b)

Norma had a stint put in this afternoon, 99% blockage. she's doing well. it was a close call for her.

So glad you got your first bloom on BJ Terrye. Isn't it pretty ! Mine turns out to be an odd rusty red color. Very hard for me to capture. I came home to 4 blooms on mine today.

Whoa--hold the phone--I need that China Bride--that is a Munson !!! Beautiful !

I am watching my barefoot Jim too--I might have a bloom tomorrow ! Mine is still just one fan though--has yours increased Terrye?

Booneville, MS

We got a good rain day before yesterday and it's sprinkling out side now. The DLs are loving it! But the heat and humidity are horrible. I worked in the yard this morning from 6:00 untill 10:00 then had to give it up. Just too hot! Especially digging thugs out of my beds. I had some Kwanzas show up in a bed I've never had them in before. Had to have come in in mulch or dirt or something.

you'll be happy to know I didn't blow up the house today I left the pressure cooker on the stove while I went out and watered, don't know what I was thinking. close call but that's all it was! LOL

This one looks alot like pink clouds, but a little different shade of pink on the outside part. and I think it's sunburnt LOL

Someone may have posted this one. I saved a Final Touch from the Kwanzas and then got in another bed taking pictures and found it there. Didn't know I had two. But that's not surprising! lol

KA, mine should be big enough to get a piece off of it this fall. If not at least some cuttings

Final Touch
