Wow! That is going to be a very pretty garden. Please share pictures when the flowers are in bloom.
I have the Sarah Barnhardt peony (5) and I have planted the Angelique tulips. They were beautiful but did not return the following year.
You seem to like pink--so do I. I have a lot of pink and blue combinations.
Are you going to Winter Sow anything. I am going to try to WS Campanula 'Telham Beauty'. I believe the picture is on Diane's Seeds.

The above flowers I am going to WS this year.
Yes, I like pink, but I think my favorite is blue as it goes with any color. It looks good with red, pink, yellow, orange and white.
My peonies bloom a lot, but I think it took them a couple of years to start blooming. Now, they bloom so much, the blooms get heavy, and I have to use supports. I don't think peonies are very pretty if one lets the blooms bend over and lay on the ground.

Well, I would really like to see your trellis when you have it above your peony.
I have struggled with mine drooping over.
I will "try" to tell you how to get a website on to a "thread" on this website like I did with Diane's Seeds. Mind you, I am not very savvy at all with computers.
Steps:
1. Start a thread as above and say something.
2. Minus out of this website.
3. Go to the website you want to share with someone.
4. Highlight the address at the top of your computer.
5. When it is highlighted in blue, carefully put your cursor over the blue highlighted area. If you aren't careful the blue highlighting will disappear. Then, you will have to highlight it over. Right click and a menu or box will appear. Click on "Copy".
6. Then minus out.
7. Now, go back and click on the original "thread" you minused out at the bottom of the computer you wrote on in Dave's Garden.
8. The original thread you had started in Dave's Garden should show up.
On the area in the thread, right click again and a menu (or box) should show up. Right click on "paste" in the menu (box). Your "address" should show up.

That should do it. If you don't know how to highlight, that's another task. Look up on your computer where it shows Help and ask the computer how to highlight.
If you still don't know how to do it, I will try to tell you how.
Good Luck!

Good instructions birder, hope that helps roseycats.
Just to clarify, by minus out, you mean minimize the browser page right?

I recommend just finding anything and trying while you have the directions. If you try and it doesn't work, you could ask questions right here on this thread.
Go to http://www.heirloomroses.com/ Heirloom Roses and pick out a pretty rose you would like to have in your garden and "copy" and "paste" it to this thread.
Or if you're too busy with Christmas and all---then maybe you could do it after Christmas.

I don't have this cutie, and I have wanted it for awhile now. However, I have read it could be aggressive. So, I haven't put it in my garden. You may want to do a little research on it. Also, you can order this from a seed catalog.

I think all of your choices are quite pretty. Just thought I'd let you know what little bit I know about your choices.
I hope you consider roses some day. I have so enjoyed them. They bloom early, all summer and well into the fall. I had bloom up to Thanksgiving.

There's a lot of Campanulas that I think are gorgeous. I think they're a little hard to grow in my zone 6 climate. I think the summers get a little too hot for them. I am going to try to grow some and see how they do.
Also, I think you would really like larkspur. It is an annual, but once you get it started in your garden, it will re-seed nicely.

Hey Birder, I have a red and white honeysuckle called Late Dutch which blooms late in the Summer till Fall, and I was thinking about mixing a white climbing rose in with it. What do you think about that idea? I really don't know what I'm going to do if I don't hurry up and get well. I've been sick since New Year's day.

Honeysuckle and climbing rose sounds real pretty. You would probably want to make sure the rose bloomed late summer and fall. Some roses bloom once, some bloom twice like some of the clematis, some bloom pretty much all summer.
Make sure the rose is suitable for Ohio. The Buck roses are good for the north-if roses are planted in a "too cold" zone, they will freeze out over the winter.
I would also look for a rose that has very good disease resistance. If you have to spray a climber above your head for black spot or whatever, well, that just doesn't sound too pleasant. Since it would be a climber, I am thinking I would get a real easy rose to grow. Also, from my experience, I once chose a climbing rose, and it totally out grew the trellis. So, check the mature height of the rose. And last, I like fragrance, but I think sometimes, you have to give up one attribute to have some other characteristic.
Those are just my thoughts-nothing written in stone.

I haven't started! But, I am going to this weekend.
I just ordered a bunch of seeds tonight. If I don't get them planted this year--well there's next year. I believe I will have time providing the company sends them out and the PO cooperates. They said they would send the seeds out within 3 days from the order. So, I am going to be watching that mailbox. I will have everything lined up regarding WS so I can pop those seeds into their homes right away.
I am thinking about ordering that Franz. clematis. I have been looking for one like that to climb around on a gold rose bush that I have.

Nice pics! The clematis is really pretty. Which one is that?
Isn't it disappointing when you buy something and then it turns out to be not what you purchased? That's happened to me also.
I ordered snapdragon seed and Winter Sowed them, re-planted them into idividual pots, then, finally planted them in the garden. They are "blooming" now. I have no idea what it is, but the stems are about four inches, spindly, and have a teeny tiney little flower at the top of it. It's so disappointing! They look a little bit like Angelonia.
For what it's worth, my Sara Barnhardt is really pale pink. If I had it to do over, I would chose a peony that has a stronger pink color.

You know you spend all that money on flower's that you really like and then they send you what they want to, it seems their should be some kind of law against these Garden Center's. I'm really disapointed that I didn't get the right flower's that I ordered but I really don't mind the wrong one's so far. At least they aren't to bad looking.

Very nice Rosy. I moved some of my hostas this year. I re-located them under my boxwood shrub. They are green and white. I like the look under the boxwoods. Your coneflowers are really pretty.
You should be very pleased with your garden. Now, sit back (try to) and sip a glass of tea and enjoy. I try to do that, but then, I see a weed or whatever and I'm up working in my garden again!

Thanks birder, It sounds like a good idea putting your Hosta's under Your Boxwood Shrub,I bet that is real pretty. A lady down the street gave me a start on one her hosta's years ago it is green and white, and I have given people starters from it, I've transplanted it around the yard so many times, lt's a wonder the thing is still alive. (Good Plant) It's been so hot and rainy here I can't get out to pull weeds (beds need cleaned) so I have been doing a lot of nothing as far as gardening goes.

We have had some rain off and on and it has made the weather bearable. I have all my bed weeded once again. Now, I need to get mulch and distribute it. I am also using preen in some of my beds this year. It's been a real challenge to keep up with the weeds this Sp. We had sooo much rain (22 inches) in the Sp. that everything sprouted. I have pulled up lots of little trees.

Sounds like you have had it really bad this year. We have had a lot of rain this Spring also but I don't think we had that much.
I used Preen mulch last year in my flower beds, liked it, but it cost a lot of money. This year I bought cheaper mulch and I have an awful lot of weeds in one of the beds already. Another flower bed that I mulched keeps getting mushrooms small skinny one's that's hard for me to see, I guess, it doesn't pay to go cheap. good luck and happy gardening.

We're still getting mulch on all of the gardens. I am having so much trouble with chiggers. I am having my husb. put the mulch on, mostly. The foxglove and larkspur are starting to go to seed. I need to scrape the mulch away from them so they will hopefully, re-seed.
We have most of the gardens on water timers and soaker hoses. That really helps.
Veggie garden is gearing up. We have lots of Cucumbers, some yellow squash, some zucchini, and the green beans will be ready to pick this weekend. No tomatoes yet(:. That's what we really like. Our butternut vines and spaghetti vines are loaded. We really like the butternut.
Japanese Beetles are macerating my rose blooms.
We've had some nice weather that allows us to enjoy our gardens.

I finally got most of my flower gardens mulched for now, I had some preen from last year so I poured that on my beds. I hope that takes care of the weeds for awhile. I don't have a veg garden, I think I'm to old for that. Sounds like you've been working very hard, be careful of those chiggers, I wear long legged pants, and long sleeve blouse, when I work outside, to try to keep the chiggers from biting. Sometimes it gets really hot, but I'm afraid of getting lime diease, or anything else. I'm sorry about the Japanese Beetles macerating your Roses,they can be such a mess to get rid of. Do you have any pictures of your garden's? Yes we have had a couple of nice days here also, but I think we are going to get rain tomorrow. Maybe not a complete wash out.
As big as your gardens sound I can image those soaker hoses and water timers help out a great deal. Do you can any of you Vegs?

I am discretionary using Preen. If I want a plant to re-seed, then, I can't use the preen. It seems there's always a plus and a minus in life!
Yes, I put up veggies if we have enough that we don't eat fresh.
Chiggers can go through the clothes. One has to wear very tightly woven clothing.
Yes, I have lots of pictures of my gardens. I am going to make a scrapbook of my garden with sections for Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter. So, I have been taking pictures of each season.

Yes, we had a "little" bit of rain. I work outside when I think it's the coolest outside. I have to watch though, or I get eaten up by mosquitoes and chiggers. I will work outside for about 30 minutes at a time and then, go in to cool off. Most of the time, it's 30 minutes and I am done for the day.
The fog is condensation from the heat. It's kind of weird.

Your iris choices are beautiful. I don't know how you keep up with all of your flowers and planting stuff since your husband is physically limited. I depend on my husband quite a bit to help me in my gardens. Thankfully, he enjoys the pretty flowers and gardens. Years ago, he would not do anything in the yard, but has done a 180*.

birder, sometimes it get's a little hairy to try to keep up with everything, but I don't have as much space as most people do, sometimes I have to give flower's away to make room for more. My DH never has been interested in helping me with my gardening he use to sit outside and watch me work, once in awile he would help,dig a hole for a tree or for an arbor, but's that's all. My Iris's and that beautiful Daylily came today while we out buying some potting soil, and they were a little droopy when I opened them up. They weren't suppose to come until next week. I had been transplanting flower's early in the mornings when It's been cool. I don't like to plant them in the heat, so I'll have to plant them tonight. I was going to rest tonight, but can't now, oh well no rest for the weary. I better be thankful. Thanks birder for liking my choice of Flower's.

"BTW, my house is a wreck right now" :) Whew, at least I know your not supper woman! If you're outside working in the yard, the house has to wait. I am too exhausted to do both in the same day.
I have a hard time parting with flowers that I have in my yard. I love to share, but to completely give something away...I find that difficult. I always try to find another place for a plant. If I can't give extras away, I try to find another place for the flower instead of tossing away the extras. I have become a little better about composting them. Maybe it's 'cause I am running out of room? :)

Most of the plants I give away are usually Daylilies that I have to divide. I am going crazy over Dayliles, and Iris's right now so I had to get rid of something. I had some Stella's that I had to divide last year, and I have somemore I have to divide this year or in the Spring. Hope you don't run out space. Don't work to hard, and Happy Gardening.
