New thread for the month, I love everyone's pictures. Here's an evening primrose and is very July 4th-ish, exploding colors. Ha ha, I looked it up in my plant database and the botanical name is: Oenothera tetragonia 'Fireworks'

Thank you BH, for starting a new thread. Nice photos. I have a really gorgeous Campanula persicifolia, white with double blooms. Unfortunately the rain beat it down flat, and it hasn't returned upright.

Yes, I have emptied out the greenhouse. Too hot in there now. I still need to transplant all of my basil, a few lobelia, and a few marigolds. Feeling lazy though, and out of space nearly. Waiting for the peas to finish and I'll put the basil in that bed.

Eryngium seeds---I got them from whatcom seed company (awesome seeds). You have to cold moist stratify them for a few weeks. I do this on a damp paper towel in a ziplock plastic bag in the fridge for about 3 weeks. And then I only had 30% germination, 3 plants. But that's enough. They look great in arrangements.

Pic---raspberry harvest from today. Just finished picking. Already tired of it, and the berry season is just starting.

SC, that's about all you need to know about raspberries. I think the reason they are so expensive at the get-go is because once you have them, you have as many as you want - they pop up everywhere. My favorite fresh berry.

They are pretty invasive, so beware. "Cascade Delight" variety is my favorite. Huge berries shaped like gnome hats as big as my thumb. They produce mid-July through mid-August. Most of them in my pics are 'Anne' (yellow) and 'Caroline', both ever-bearing. But mainly produce now and again in Sept-October. Blueberries are also ready to be picked ('Duke') starting tomorrow. Poor crop of strawberries this year, because the beds are burned out.

That's beautiful! How do you keep them in check? You know I'm not a fan of things that come up all around. BH I didn't know they were expensive. I'm not much of a farmer but I was thinking I would try these. I love yogurt, rasberries and granola for breakfast. Just thought it would be nice to pick my own.

They kind of invade like bamboo, with runners. I think a bamboo barrier would do the trick if you have that kind of energy. Otherwise, it is constant hacking them down and pulling out what you can. They have really started to invade my blueberry area. But they are delish.

Does anyone know what this is? It's quite lovely and I'd like to give it a name. Stands about 2 1/2 feet high, growing nicely in morning sun, although it does tend to get that brownish edge to the leaves. Any clue what that is?

That's an interesting observation SC. My sister gave me this daylily which is called Victoria Red. I asked her why anyone would call it that, it seems more like Rusty Dupuis (my own name) to me. She reports her mother plant is a much more vibrant red on her side of the mountains (Twisp area). So perhaps the weather affects color.

Amazing what a week of warm weather,keeping the deer and slugs in check can do for a garden. Mine is exploding right now with so many blooms. I hope they pace themselves,so something will be in bloom the rest of the summer.

A view of part of my front yard, Noid lilly, Dahlia, Hydrangea, Daylilly,

With the move last summer and the horrible mess from the oak trees this past fall, I have lost most identification markers of my plants. My memory is not as sharp as it once was back in the day..but I am afraid most of my posts from now on will be the dreaded noid... hope you enjoy them anyway. At least I can remember the plant name most of the time.

So much hacking has to be done -- the front garden won't look good again till net year. Not to mention the huge bare spot where there used to be a gorgeous Japanese maple.

So keep those vivid pictures coming to remind of what was & will be again!

Maury, you will need some space for it. The cultivar name 'Goliath' is a give-away. It's about 8' tall, pretty much can stand on her own until it either gets too many blooms or a rain hits. The leaves are also quite large. Would be good in the back of a border, likes the sun.

My lillies are mixed in with daylillies and bearded iris and just about everything else. I really like them in the back of my yard right now. It is my trouble spot where the neighbor has never cut his oak trees so it is a very hard spot to get things to grow. 1/2 the bed gets 1/2 day sun at best so I have my flowers up front and planted that wildflower seed in the back portion for now. I actually love the wild flowers there (same as I sent you) .I may just seed the entire bed with them and let the existing plants come up through next year. The wild flowers were a bit shorter than they should be ..but that is ok just to have some color in a shady part of the yard.

This is my latest beauty. A small variety of pineapple lily. Love it. My DS gave me a pot full.

Someone on Plant ID said my thistle thing was Safflower. I'm hoping I can keep it in the flowerbed.

It's an annual so I will look for seeds.
