I was told it was hit or miss with direct gardening so we will see what I get. I couldn't pass up the prices so I gave them a try.

Pittsford, NY(Zone 6a)

Thanks for the new thread Celeste.
I might have listed the Lily Garden order on the previous thread but just in case here goes.
Ice Caves - which I cancelled,color was more yellow than green ,the lily in database wasnt what I wanted.I always check to see a plant growing in a garden instead of trusting a website image.
Antique Lace
Spice Islands

A short list,but I am running out of room

South China, ME(Zone 5a)

Spice Island is a unique one, I catch myself doing a double take. Is that a bad omen that it will eventually end up in my garden? LOL

Pittsford, NY(Zone 6a)

I had it ordered a couple of years ago and it sold out.
Most od the Tangos look alike to me so I noticed thi one because of the peach background.
The Lily Garden had Rosepoint lace ,mine got given away by digging the wrong lily.
I noticed she has Antique Lace which is even better.Larger flower softer background color.

South China, ME(Zone 5a)

I have Rosepoint Lace & another white one that looks like it but at the moment I don't recall it's name. My favorite new one from last year was from Ramona. "LANKON"

Was the Lookalike a lily called White Twinkles? or Sweet Surrender? they look alike to me.

Now that I see them side by side Sweet Surrender is more recurved and longer petals.

Jo, do you have a laptop computer that you can use on battery. I imagine you walking thru your garden with it (using Skype, which is easily set up). We would all be able to see everything as though we were there with you!!!!!

Thomaston, CT

I'm drooling over all those selections! Love the Purple Paws iris, too....and that cold hardy fuchsia is intriguing....I've had fuchsia survive the winter here, but they don't bloom again.....of course, I neglect them! I ordered 3 DLs, 2 clems, & 5 iris, plus the camellia....I think I'm done, but one never knows!

Norwich, CT(Zone 6a)

I had cabin fever today, so I went antique shopping.
I found "Catskill Mountains" windchimes. They are quite big and I can't wait until I hang them outside.
I was quite happy with my treasure.

Lower Hudson Valley, NY(Zone 6b)

I like chimes. Especially like the ones with the deeper tones.

Thomaston, CT

Love chimes,,,,don't know if my neighbors do, though.....

Pittsford, NY(Zone 6a)

I like chimes too.I also have a nice cast bell that goes crazy in high wind.

Thomaston, CT

You have some lovely items in your yard!

Pittsford, NY(Zone 6a)

Thanks Marilyn I have been lucky in my travels and trades.

Nantucket, MA(Zone 7a)

A big fan of wind chimes and bells. My BIL once was so unhappy with our biggest Arcosanti Soleri Windbell that he went out in the middle of the night and stuffed a sock into it. We bought our first one in 1978 and have been collecting them ever since. But now we buy them only when we find them at flea markets or auctions. Patti

Pittsford, NY(Zone 6a)

We have the same taste in garden art Patti.
I have a small Arkosanti bell,its the cast one I mentioned.I do love it and got it with an employee discount in the 70's.
This is like mine.
