all great Celeste!!!..oh I love the natural air freshener idea.. too yucky out to even have the windows open though..

since I can't I will put out a reminder to pinch your coleus if you are growing them.. the ones on the front step were already trying to flower.. always best to stop it before it happens .. guess mine will be going to heck soon

Thomaston, CT

Very pretty blooms Karen & Pixie.....

(Ronnie), PA(Zone 6b)

Beautiful Karen and Celeste!

Been piching my coleus Allison and sticking them in pots that need fillers!

Denville, NJ(Zone 6b)

good job Ronnie!!!!... you know my ocd is kicking in not being able to deadhead or pinch anything.. getting ants in the pants.. but I am still behaving

(Ronnie), PA(Zone 6b)

You better be!! I'll pinch off a few extra marigolds for ya!

Denville, NJ(Zone 6b)

thank you.. LOL

Halifax, MA(Zone 6a)

Thanks, guys!

Celeste, that's definitely Malaysian Monarch. I have both that and Emperor Butterfly, and EB is much lighter, more of a violet orchid. I love Munson's daylilies. Glad I could help with your ID of Alpine Mist. I love your clumps of Indian Giver and Real Wind. Neither one of mine has developed into a big clump yet. IG will probably be nice in a couple more years. Got moved from a bad spot a few years ago. RW needs to be moved, as it gets too much shade where it is now. I also really like Baby Blues and Stack The Deck. I know I've mentioned last year that I liked Stack The Deck.

I'd help you pinch if I was closer, Allison.

thanks Karen!

South China, ME(Zone 5a)

Pinched yesterday as you suggested. :)
Thanks Karen!

Denville, NJ(Zone 6b)

the only coleus I can get to easy was the under the sea on the front steps.. sat on the stairs & pinched.. guess the rest will be on there own this year :(

Thomaston, CT

Allison, I sympathize....I broke my hip the last week of July....got home the 1st week of Aug. All the gardens needed care, but no one did a thing, except pick my veggies......I remember sitting on the stone wall, leaning into the garden as far as I could, to weed.....really futile. But the good part was instead of working in the garden, I had to sit and enjoy them.....something I rarely do.......so, sit & enjoy.

Denville, NJ(Zone 6b)

been doing my best.. and have not been bad at all.. other than I went to the food store with Randy yesterday.. for some reason that is a really stressful thing to do alone.. and I needed things for the party tomorrow at my friends house.. would have bugged him out picking out lemons & oranges and the big list that I had.. but I am not baking or cooking anything this year.. figured my shopping trip was enough for the old bones.. LOL.. Randy does the deep frying party.. I just supervise.. and make sure he doesn't set fire to himself or the house.. so tomorrow won't be bad on me

South China, ME(Zone 5a)

Supervisor! ^_^
