Paul, I'd be thrilled with any of those. Very nice photos and plants.

Excellent plants, Steph. Really do like Liatris and have a white one added this year.

I am ready for Fall, at least the cooler weather promised this coming week.

I've seen pictures of white liatris, and they sure are great looking. But, I've all ways wondered if liatris are floppy, not that that matters much.

Thank you for the compliments on my plants and photos.

Paul, I didn't take pics, but mine remained upright until last month when the heads started to get heavy producing seeds. About the same time we had a wind / rain storm that left them half prone. The flop factor doesn't bother me either and the same thing happens to my Coreopsis.

Your cut flowers are so pretty displayed in vases, Susie. Did you use food coloring in the water?

Anybody remember using food coloring to change the color of Queen Anne's Lace and Carnations? My Mom used to do that when I was a kid and thought it was magic!

While in town today, I couldn't believe how much Halloween stuff is already out.

What? Christmas stuff already? It gets crazier and crazier!

Paul - my purple liatris flower stems never seem to flop over...the leaves get wilty as fall sneaks in...but I usually end up cutting the stems off in the upright position. I've never seen white ones before...gotta look those up!

FOTV - we do the carnation coloring as science projects in our school each year...the kids love it...the darker colors show up better on the carnations! It's fun fun fun!

Yeah, not only that they had the Halloween stuf out as soon as July 4th was over and everyone is selling heavy winter clothes that we out here in Phoenix can't even wear until January. I think all the stores follow their corporate dictates with no thought to the fact that it is often 75 degrees here on Christmas. But they are selling heavy sweaters, coats, boots, etc. Nuts.

Susie, your pics are beautiful, wish I had enough gardens to have cut flowers like that. But if I brought them in the house,the cats would just play with them anyway :(

I had white liatris bulbs this spring...the squirrels stole them...so who knows if the will pop up or where. Squirrel stole a ginger root too. Little stinkers. They are diggin in everything right now storing their nuts...all my potted plants. Then, about January, I get oak trees in all my house plants :/ LOL!

Minne - the squirrels are crazy here in NH...we've never seen them climb trees and toss the pine cones down - even before the cones are ready to fall...it's like taking your life in your hands to walk under the trees here. I've got (inches deep) pine cone debris everywhere below the trees...it's like they know something about this upcoming winter that I should be worried about. Stinks that they stole your bulbs! BRATS! I can never keep tulip bulbs from them so I don't try anymore! TOO discouraging when you dig and dig all fall and get NOTHING in the spring! My doggie Ethan believes that squirrels are his arch enemy - he takes it upon himself to keep our 4 acres free of any squirrels on the ground! But alas -- they don't care once he goes in!

It was darn chilly last night -- 40 degrees! UG!

Ali - thats how it is @ my house with acorns, knee deep it seems like. They are out in full force when the dogs are inside. I noticed the dogs getting lazy though. 2 squirrels WALKED through the yard and the dogs just watched...Come ON! Still have to have the umbrella up when sitting on the deck of you end up getting nailed in the head - or "extras" in your coffee...I hate that. An acorn ruins a perfectly good cup of coffee. :/ LOL!
95° yesterday - 76° today. Some rain last night which is needed (everywhere I know) and possibly more this morning.
Leaves are falling - raking will now take over the weekends instead of weeding and mowing.

Shirley,

I was out of town until Wednesday night (late) and I had your box waiting for me...I opened it up (midnight) but I just couldn't wait to see all those surprise plants you were sending! I planted everything this afternoon and am so excited to have all the varieties you sent!

Below is a photo of all those great plants...

Shirley sent me:
astible
tiarella - sugar and spice and another variety
lily of the valley
japanese painted fern
grape hyacintys
crinum - milk and honey
acanthus mollis
helleborous foetidus

AND she even put new garden gloves in my box...I totally don't deserve the extra TLC but love it anyway!

I hope the lupines grow...I've heard they don't transplant well and I've never tried moving them around the gardens...i just let them grow where the seeds fall and hope for the best! I have seeds and if you need some let me know !!! It's so strange but I'm getting foxglove all over the place...I only had about 3 plants last year that bloomed...none this year...but lots of babies! I have no idea what color they will be but who cares - they are so beautiful as flowers! Thanks for being such an awesome trade buddy!

Minne - that's so funny...acorns in your coffee! I can just picture it too...they probably give each other extra points if one can toss it down and land in your cup! I was just outside earlier today and man -- in the places that I cleaned...there's more pine cone debris! AHHHHHHH! Like I don't have enough to do that I have to go back and redo stuff!

After hubs and I saw what wasn't entered in a neighboring County Fair that could have been, I will enter plants and he hopes to enter veggies next year. Our mail lady racked up several Blue Ribbons and a few Red and White ones. Two of her Blue Ribbon pumpkins are up there and some of her veggies and eggs that all placed are scattered in this photo.

Oh Mittsy, you'll appreciate seeing the quilts! Here are 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Sorry if seeing these are re-runs for some of you.

Old Virginia and North Carolina Ham sacks on a new 2012 quilt won 1st place; LK let me know the technique on the next one is Yo Yo done in a patchwork pattern and it took 2nd; 3rd went to the Double Wedding Ring.

Mittsy - I will be getting in the garden this weekend. My back slipped out and I've hardly been able to move :/ Im all taped up now so it should hold me. Its impossible to do anything during the week with sports - we are gone from dinner time to bed time - and being I dont get home until dinner time from work, that makes it difficult to get in the garden. What is the cut off date for you for me to ship to NY?

Diamond and I exchanged our boxes the 3rd wk. of Sept. Sorry I don't have pictures of mine, but I rec'd some nice Sedums - Matrona, Autumn Joy, and Striped. I planted all 3 in the same bed on the S.W. side of our house. I think it will be a good spot for them. I also got Helenium which went into a round bed in the side yard with iris and peonies, and the pink Hardy Hibiscus is planted in a sheltered place on the S. side of the house. We also exchanged some seeds. Anita sent me Blackberry Lily, Green Envy Echinacea, and Burgundy & Vanilla Scabiosa.

Thanks for a FUN trade! I'm really looking forward to my new additions.

I couldnt believe the rhodie was "blooming". I picked up two of them myself. I decided to go "new" plants for the most part because everything in my yard is done or beyond :/ The peony and beebalm were from my gardens, but as you can see, the rest were purchased. Hope they all made it okay and glad they arrived before you went south.

Cheermom/Sue, I'm so glad you liked the box sent. I did make the candle lampshade...I used to make stained glass back when I had the workspace and time, LOL. The lampshades also look cute on a mason jar terarrium ( I would have sent a candle, but they melt & leak in the heat= messy box).

I recieved my box from Cheermom/Sue yesterday. She sent a boxful of nice goodies...
watsonia -orange, caladium, peruvian daffodils, a large moses in the boat, pink tropical hibiscus, and irises (pink embroidery, puccini & veined velocaraptor). Thanks Sue for a great box, esp. the irises, hibiscus & peruvian daffs!


Deejay, Dmail me your addy & I'll root & send you some of the shrimp plants ;)
Thanks for hosting another awesome swap...looking forward to the next one!

Chell, what you thought were iris's were actually daylilies - should have marked them better, hope you were happy - I sure am and your plants are all happy in their new homes.
Really added to my blank spots on my patio.

Well our mid 90's degree temps only lasted a couple of days - back to 100 and 101 --- to say I am tired of this is an understatement!

At least the mornings are cooler.

I don't know why I typed the word 'irises'...I knew they were daylilies-had just finished looking up the varieties onlline...just having a 'duh' moment, LOL. I like that they're fragrant types, and my son just loves the velociraptor.

Thanks for hosting susie and making all this possible!!!! Great swaps this year...am still attempting to get things in the ground...Got most of my backyard rototilled now the raking and planting...Fingers are crossed as we are getting our first of the cool weather of the season (snow might be heading my way this weekend but hoping it goes north for a few more weeks while I get planting done...)

Thanks everyone that traded with me over the last 6 months as it has been very rewarding and great fun... I feel like I'm the luckiest person in the world!!!! So many great goodies that I didn't have and do now, what fun...hoping all my babies make it thru the winter as I'm excited about seeing so many new blooms next season..Kathy

Thanks FOTV and deejay9, I do have gardens with more clay, as well, I just didn't plant any of your plants in those gardens.
Yes there is more, some I planted, some are to be stored in my crawl space, and seeds that will be planting in the spring. I'll give you a list of them when I have time. The other plants that I planted, never got photographed, because my memory card is full.

a sedum, I'll ID it next year, I don't think it's 'Autumn Joy' Sedum because I have Autumn Joy' Sedum, and the leaves look different.

Paul, No need to list what you received as I did on October 2nd, see above. Found a Sedum tag in the yard after I mailed to you and yours may be "Vera Jameson". I have two clumps of her rambling with others. One Vera J. is under a huge clump of Pampas Grass where the cats like to lay and need to move it to a sunny spot where it would be happier, and I could see it bloom.
