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

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.

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.

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

I think I passed and am feeling fine, just a bit sore. On Thursday I took some shots of mostly lilies in bloom in our Nantucket garden, so here is a link. They aren't labeled yet, sorry, but enjoy.

Thanks all who are posting the beautiful blooms, guys. My few lilies are doing well and succeeding one another in bloom this year, with the toad lilies planned for last. The orienpets by the road attract the walkers and joggers. Nymph came out very strong in the back yard (Celeste suggestion).Lots of wasp creatures, no red lily beetles. Sorry I'm not posting. There's a reason, but it's too hard to explain for now.

Jo, your deck is looking fabbo, and Patti, your lilies are so scrumptious looking, I just want to eat them up.

Celeste, are your blue phlox really that blue? If so, I need some. I have so many gorgeous phlox in bloom right now. They are looking so fantastic this year, as are the daylilies. I'm having such a wonderful daylily season, and I'm selling quite a few, too. I made another $110 today in sales. Not a lot of customers, either, but they are spending money. I'm purchasing a few goodies for the gardens with that extra green. I love that short little lily that only comes to your knees. Ultra cute! I love your Fire On The Mountain and Please Say Yes daylilies. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your combo shots!!!!!!

Patti, is everything okay? I guess I must have missed something. Maybe you posted on the coffee break thread, which I haven't had a chance to check in about a week, maybe longer. So easy to get behind. Hope all is well.

Hope all is well with you too, Rosemary. Take care, both of you.

Marilyn, love your lilies and DL's. The first red NOID might be Red Volunteer, if it's a fairly tall one. RV is about 30" tall. http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/showimage/102198/ I think the next one might be Paper Butterfly. http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/showimage/220578/

Here are some from my gardens.

A new one for me this year called New Series, another new one that is now a NOID unless I can figure out what it is (might have been a bonus), King Size, Martha Reed, Margaret Seawright.

I figured out what that NOID above is. It's Fox Hunter, and it was a bonus. Nice bonus!

Purple NOID (I believe it is a daylily by G.H.Wild), 2 shots of Here Today, 2 shots of Panocha.

I finally got to organize my photos, so here are a few of our entrance from the street. We're pretty close to the road. Noid mailbox daylily. These were all dug several years ago from PFF (Phoenix flower Farm) and they couldn't tell me the names. They're multiplied pretty well and have filled in nicely.
I never liked the very tall one at the mailbox so I have dug it out and given it to my nephew. I sliced off a few in the digging and put them in a 5 gallon bucket with some water and they have grown new roots.

1 Very tall noid peach daylily and Downey Woodpecker shots. I forgot to bring in the feeder one night and the raccoons got it and chewed off one of the yellow plastic wasp guards. This little woodpecker discovered he has a sweet beak and has been visiting every morning. Some days he is waiting for me to put it back out. My niece gave me some freshly dug Rose of Sharon plants and I wanted to be sure they made it through this hot dry spell we're having so I bought a child's wading pool and have been keeping them in a mostly shady location until it cools down.

Hollyhock Chater's white, Bergenia, not sure if it will bloom this year. Queen Anne's Lace, one of my favorite weeds.

I've so enjoyed looking at all your lovely pictures. Thank you for posting them. I've had some wonderful water lilies but by the time I remember To go and get the camera it has become too hot to return to the garden. Not having water access has been very hard on me this year.We have resorted to connect four hoses together and running it across the street so I could add water to the pond. After watering for four hours, it rained. Can't win!

Mittsy, that iris is gorgeous!

Caitlinsgarden, SVOG is done blooming now. It's an early midseason bloomer, 5" bloom, 24" diameter. It's not the best doer for me, maybe cause it's an evergreen and might like a better climate. It's slow to increase here, but it is hardy.

Love love love the hummer shots, never too many of those.

Well I think I'm going to imitate the phlox next to monarda idea. Some of my phlox needs to move and my Monarda looks lonely. Great visual suggestion.

The pics are all a pick me up. It' been a marathon here that is starting to settle down: annoying medical issues, covering for other peoples' vacations, wierd social issues in the Courts, getting 3 kids organized for college...barely any garden time here, but there's hope.

My DH loves Morning Glories, so every year I plant them around the mailbox and tried some on trellises off the deck. They did nothing for so long, I thought the seeds were no good, so finally here's what we have. Heavenly Blue. They're so cheerful! Open pollinated Mailbox mix that started out with becky in Sebastian FL and ended up here in NY.

Two days ago the water lilies were spectacular, I've got to remember to take the camera across the street to the pond.

happy to report that the bacteria in the pond has finally taken hold and there is clear water - was approaching pea soup when we left on vacation, when we returned it had cleared up.

Thanks, guys!

Your pond is so lovely, Bill, and such an amazing feat. I think about all the work you put into it every time I see it. I wish I had a bigger pond for a lotus. Someday I want to make my pond bigger.

Celeste, I believe you're right on that Fruit Loops ID. I think you may have told me that last year, and I forgot. It was you or someone else. Can't remember for sure. I'll have to make a tag for it before I forget. It's a really pretty one, but I don't believe it's fertile, so can't be used in hybridizing. At least, according to Tinker's database, there is no rating on fertility, and it has never produced any registered offspring.

Caitlinsgarden, all of the last ones were blooming on July 18 and 21, although this year they're blooming about 2 wks earlier than usual. This also happened 2 years ago, due to the crazy, early hot weather in the spring. Today I'm posting more from July 21.

Witch's Thimble with Handsome Ross Carter, Royal Palace Prince, Phlox 'Frans Schubert', Lavender Etching, Arthur Edgerton (this guy was filming my gardens last week with my friend Connie, who interviewed me, and they're putting together a show to be on a local cable station).

Asiatic Pheasant, Siloam Bo Peep, Addie Branch Smith, Lavender Achievement, Lookaway Rocket (supposed to be an early-midseason bloomer, but blooms rather late here, so not sure it it's even what it's supposed to be).

Yes, Bill, busy posting pics. :-) Most of the day was drizzly rain here, so I didn't do anything in my gardens except give a tour to one customer, and she ended up buying a couple of the potted daylilies, so it's all good.

Several long shots.

Caitlin, I don't always do that, but I had a guy coming over to film the gardens, and I wanted all the daylilies to look nice, so I just collected all the dead heads and put them on the compost pile. Usually I put them on the ground, too, right in the beds, hopefully hidden under daylily foliage, if there is enough to hide them. They worms like them.

Nice caladiums, Allison. I have not grown those (yet!).

Ronnie, it usually takes about 2-3 years for a daylily to bloom from seed. They bloom sooner down in Florida or if they're greenhouse grown. I think you can get bloom in about a year that way.

Love the pics, Allison, Marilyn and Jen! That 'Laura' and 'Blue Paradise' phlox are gorgeous! Must get some. The annual garden looks great, Marilyn, and that cosmos looks like it's from the Seashells mix.

Jen, don't know the weed. That El Desperado is great. I ordered it one time, but got a pink one instead that I believe is Pink Cotton Candy. Not that it's not a nice one, but it's certainly not what I ordered.

Daylilies take a lot of patience from seed, Ronnie, and I'm sure you know that daylilies do not come true to seed. Your seedlings will look different from the parent, though sometimes they may look very similar. The only way to get a true copy of the parent is through division or tissue culture or from proliferations on the scape (essentially a baby plant of the parent, like a spider plant would make, that can be rooted). These are all considered clones.

This thread starts off with a bang because of the double orange blossom in the first post!! Beautiful Karen. Too many for me to mention individually at this late date, but the Daylilies that Celeste and Karen post are endless and gorgeous. JoAnn's pots will be models for my next year's containers. Ronnie, I always LOVE your choice of flowers in your garden.
