Spanish lavender blooming. Hanging baskets are up. Bought 21 this year. I'm taking on way too much this year. I have set up my drip system for 8 of them. (the other 13 are already set up on systems I've installed previous years, including the baskets in this pic, thank goodness).

I apparently am unable to load 5 photos at a time - is there a trick to that? I've tried 3 times and it takes forever and then kicks me to the general forum page with no photos uploaded. Sigh. I'll upload individually I guess.

Looking out my kitchen window. Iris, volunteer corydalis, centaura.

Say Willow, I'm still planning on coming over to your place this coming week to help in your garden -- any way you want. I can't remember for sure what day we settled on, but I think it was Monday (Memorial Day). Is that still good for you? I have some dwarf irises already potted up if you are interested.

ww, I was surprised to see the fawn this early too. I moved here late June last year and I did not see any until Mid-july. I think this one was born in my neighbors back yard( which is overgrown and has some good areas for them to hide in) as I saw the Mother deer doing some strange and interesting twitching, stretching ,posturing tuesday afternoon. She looked a bit uncomfortable ..labor does it all us gals.

Foxglove meadow. Backed by lilac, thalictrum, and coastal strawberry groundcover. Camelot series foxgloves. Many more coming from self sowing. I also added a lot of 'Candy Mountain' to this area for next year, and perhaps some first year blooms later this summer, too.

Well a deer got into my front yard overnight and chewed my clematis which was just staring to go up the arbor, ate all the buds of my echinacia & black eyed susans, ate half a stock of lupine and a few small sunflower seedlings. Geeze... :(

Sprayed the entire yard again today with "deer out" spray. We will see how that goes.

They did leave many things in the back yard and a few in the front to photograph today.

Grateful Red Bearded Iris, the siberian iris are starting x2,Jacobs Ladder,allium & dutch iris

Deer never ate my echinacia or Black-eyed Susan. Is it the same as Rudbeckia? Or Lupine either.

Willow. I know they are not supposed to eat those plants. Must have been a young deer who was sampling at the front yard "buffet". It is so frustratiing. The plants will continue to grow, but I will have to wait a while longer for some blooms. I believe Black eyed susan is Rudbeckia.

Disappointing when the deer eat your buds. I just put in a motion sensor "Scarecrow", which sprays the water. It cost $80--I had sticker shock. However, it seems to be working so far to protect my formal rose garden.

All Things Plants is another gardening website, similar to DG. Most of the posts were from the same usernames as people who post regularly on DG. (virginiarose, echinaceamaniac, springcolor, ge). So I was just confused why anyone would post on two different sites when it is more or less the same group of people. I just didn't see that site offering anything better than DG. And it lacks a Pacific NW forum. Every other region in the US is represented it seems. It didn't look like the forums generated more discussion or anything though. That was the reason I checked it out---I'm always looking for more discussion and photos, but it seemed to not be as active as DG.

I've also poked around at ATP and have decided to just stick with DG. I know the format, it seems more user friendly to me (although that could just be familiarity), I don't have the time to double-post to two different sites, and frankly I find the name All Things Plant a bit awkward. I utilize the Tools of DG, especially the blog which I use as a journal of sorts for myself - I haphazardly track wildlife in one tab, keep a running To Do list in another, and make note of what I've done in yet another. Some features of DG I never use, others I use a lot. It works well for me.

I do follow a couple other gardening sites, but more on a catch as I can basis: Garden Rant, A Way to Garden, and Rainy Side Gardening.

Whatever happened to the Cubits site - is that still up? I was just coming into DG when that fiasco was playing itself out and I didn't follow it too closely or have much opinion one way or the other on the pollitics of it all. Glad all the angst seems to have evaporated.

Willow---very nice, inviting front porch.

I have tried for a couple of days now, and it looks like I can no longer upload images to this website. Even if I try to just upload one at a time. I've had no problems uploading to Facebook or any other website, so clearly this is a problem with the DG website. If they don't improve that, I might be looking for a new garden forum soon. I prefer to upload my images high resolution, and I prefer viewing others' garden pics in high resolution. I'll try again later today or tomorrow.

I second Willow - perhaps search through the other forums to see if the photograph problem is being addressed proactively. I have not had much luck loading more than one photo myself, but I haven't been too diligent about figuring out if the problem is on my side or theirs. This gardening season has been rather skimpy compared to past ones for postings and I was finally feeling like a new smaller group was coalescing in the PNW forum.

Kosk, I've been hankering after a ceanothus lately and didn't know of their fragrance - yet another plus.

Bea, lovely pics. I've started a spreadsheet showing what is blooming when, charting in the actual color, and how long it is in bloom. What I'm finding is the deeper the color the shorter the bloom time (for the most part, there are always exceptions). It's been an interesting project, and will hopefully help with my winter daydreaming/planning.

My first annual poppy bloomed today. It's a red one.

My ceanothus variety is 'Victoria'. I grows fast and gets huge. Much of the fragrance comes from the foliage, I think. It smells most fragrant in the fall when the rains start.

My poppies are popping as well. I was going for a low look next to the stairs, but my CA poppies insist on being 2 feet tall, and I obviously got some field poppies in the mix as well. And, now I'm finding volunteer toadflax popping up here and there. So I guess I'm getting more of an intermediate height this year. This is my annual bed that I can change up each season, although I do tend to plant self-sowers (calendulas just now bulking up at the feet of the poppies, recently pulled out the fading forgets). Finally a sunny day -- I'm heading out.

Two of the pink roses I have. They must be old ones and not in very good shape.

A couple of masterworts. The first has rather plain flowers but the variagated foliage is wonderful. I especially like the second one against our old barn boards.

They're not blooming yet but I have 3 or 4 fuchsias that Willow gave me at her roundup that have survived 2 winters in smallish containers! I'm so happy to have the memories AND the plants.

Thanks Willow. Thats a crocosmia. I think I'm in trouble with that one, they have doubled!! in size. I think any nursery will have those. The fuchisa took a beating 2 winters ago. This year they are nice. If we had a a round oup someday they are easy to root.

One year-old Rosa Veilchenblau climbing up the stairs. It's a once bloomer, smells light and apple-y, and has few thorns. I love it! My bamboo is also taking off. (Those that my puppy didn't eat, at least. Bamboo shoot salad..yum!) I planted a variety of Phyllostachys last year to hide the neighbor's wall in back. My favorite so far is 'Lama Temple.' And yes, I was careful to put in a trench barrier for the bamboo:)

My first post here! Beautiful pictures, everyone. What a wonderful region for gardening.

Thanks for the welcome, bonehead and Willowwind! I love your photos too, of the lavender, poppies popping, the honeysuckle and now that monkshood. Gorgeous!

I realize my bamboo didn't really show up in the rosa Veilchenblau photo so here's another try. It's not what's "blooming" exactly, but it's growing like crazy! The tallest one has shot up to double it's height in the past month! I think that one is Phyllostachys aureosulcata 'Harbin Inversa'. They were all planted last spring in hopes of covering up that ugly wall.

Roses are my first love, and here are some of my hybrid teas (red is Mr. Lincoln with Double Delight) and English shrub roses (clockwise from top: Abraham Darby, Lord Mountbatten, and Jude the obscure).

Everything is beautiful!. The roses are gorgeous, Portland Rose, and I can practically smell them through the screen...imagination I guess. Willow, it's good to see that little plant I gave you blooming already. I have been through my end-of-schoolyear marathon of work, and finished a really difficult paper for my college class today. I'm so grateful to have a moment to breathe and come here to look at pretty pictures. Thanks everyone.

Welcome, Portland Rose. Good to have another Oregonian. Jude the Obscure is one of my favorite roses also---love the rounded shape.

Summer--I see you added the cerinthe major this year (blue shrimp plant)---It looks great next to the cape fuschia. So much bigger than mine last year.

BH---love that color of the Stainless Steel.

I need to walk around and photograph my gardens. I haven't done so for a couple of weeks!

Pic---yarrows 'Moonshine' and 'Paprika'.

Welcome Portland Rose.

Been busy working on the deer fence again. Sadly, I had to resort to deer netting around my front yard. Kept me busy most of the week. Was able to relax a bit last night and snap a few blooms .

Yarrow can spread its seed, but I have not found it to be a problem plant. If you see a seedling and you don't want any more they are easy to pull out when they are small. Easy to relocate also.

BeeHive..your pictures of your flowers are stunning! Bambi must have bought all her friends that night you lost all those flowers! There's a skinny Bambi wondering around here. I am wondering it that is same one that I saw with one fawn last week walking around her at 5:30 am with her Mama. She couldn't have been no more than about 2 ft. tall but she had her legs prancing very well, so she might have been a few months old..Usually we see Bambi with 2 or 3 fawns following close by, not just one. I've never seen a skinny deer; this one you can almost see her ribs from afar. The times I've seen this one she was alone..maybe Mr. Bambi got hit by car?

Do you have good luck using "Deer off?" Around here, most people use "Liquid Fence" which works but all of those animal deterrent products you have to respray after a rain and spray often when it is dry. They love hostas! I had one coneflower plant sampled a few weeks ago.

June was a while ago, but these photos of my one Pacific Giant delphinium were from June 10.

OP Delphinium elatum 'Pacific Giant'
from Botanical Interests
Foliage around 5 feet tall, flower spikes another 2 feet.
They didn't last long as cut flowers, but with sun behind then, like pastel stained glass.
Light blue and light purple in the same bloom.
Seeds really easy to collect, I have 48 teaspoons!

I found a few late summer beauties. A surprise creamy rose, a beautiful aster and some fall color on a peony. It is hard to see my new tiered flowerbed. I've only planter 6 new iris so far. They are bluish and white. My sis gave me a pretty little maple to put in and I have a few more maples for it.
Guess it would help if I remembered the pics.
