Yardqueen I love your baskets and your whole house. I swear I have picked out your wallpaper at some point in my life, and I like all the materials in the background: wood, brick, carpet and dog toy in that last photo corner of wall/fireplace, I think. LOL. If you had a goat and cow basket, your woven menagerie would be complete.

I just don't have time to read posts, let alone do anything but tend and cut flowers, so I apologize for not being a better contributor. I read when I can, but that's not often enough. In January, I'll be done with dahlias and more active.

Speaking of baskets...I was so inspired by this forum, thought I would try my hand at my very first "real flower" arrangement! Yes, Karma, no more faux arragements for me...
Its pretty simple, but I like simple...my favorite fresh flower arrangement is as many Casablanca Lilys as I can possibly get in one vase!
But as I have a mostly tropical garden I am going to see what I can come up with on a tropical theme.

This one is of course, Pampas Grass, bambusa and some sweet potatoe...

Wanted to cut the pampas grass today, before we get the big storm thats suppose to blow through here...keep your fingers crossed for us that its only "just a storm"
Cheers
Cath

Cath, those pampas plumes look so great in your arrangement. It's a beautiful arrangement in a beautiful basket in a beautiful room with a beautiful view. Oh yeah, and cool mosaic piece.

I will keep my fingers crossed y'all in Pass Christian as well as for us in New Orleans. Who knows how the levees are going to hold up. The governor of LA has already declared a state of emergency for us...esp with all the FEMA trailers still in use here. She also has loads of buses and emergency workers and the national guard on standby. Overkill? Or a lesson learned the hard way in Katrina? Well, hope it's not too bad.

Cath, that is a great arrangement and fits perfectly in that location! I like your basket pot, and the foliage you have chosen complements the Pampass grass really well. Thankyou for joining in. Do you have any other baskets or containers to show us?

Poochella, sorry I won't be churning out arrangements at all for the time being.
Yardqueen, I like the second one best too! I have taken some pics of mine but have lost heart
not being able to show you anyway!
Maybe I should just count them!!

The weather has got colder here now and it feels like summer has gone. Not many flowers to see in the garden either. moan moan, ...no laptop..moaning still...moan moan...moan!

Terri wants baskets, so I found one of mine. It's not unusual, but I thought both of my Curious Georges would make it more interesting?

Terri,
Thanks for the encouraging words on the arragement, it was fun!
Where in London do you live,
Visit once a year, love London, last there for Wimbledon and Tour de France.
All the bomb scares and security are a bit much though! Not such a jolly ol England any more!
What zone would London be? I heard its getting warmer all the time...like everywhere I guess.

Hi Karma, are you sure you didn't find that baby floating down the river in that basket?!!!!joke
he looks a happy lad,there used to be a tv show called Peyton place when I was a kid, it was from America. BTW, I think it is a very unusual basket! wish my dd would still fit into something that small!!

Cath, I don't know about zones, but I live in SE25, have you been to Kew gardens or any of the flower shows over here? I love tennis too and have been to Wimbledon before, in the days of Borg and Jimmy Conners!

Yardqueen, are you ok? how about making an arrangement in one of your baskets for us?
Don't worry when I get my pc working I will show you my baskets as promised.

Your baby is soooo cute!!! When I was a teenager my Mom surprised everyone with a baby sister... When she was about 8 or 9 mo old, I sat her in a large round basket with side handles and took a picture looking down at her. It was so cute... I wish I had that picture...

Terri,
I am fine... or as good as I can be... I will see about that arrangement... I have some roses blooming and maybe a thing or two I could add. But again, most of my flowers right now are brugs... "Peyton Place" huh??? You are telling your age... LOL close to mine I guess. Depends on how old a child you were...

YQ, I finally saw a brug in person at a nursery...gorgeous. They were 16.95...too much for me to risk killing it. I did purchase a datura for 3.00, but when I posted it on the datura forum, they told me it was a brug!!! How cool is that?

About the single flowers, it's always nice to see them in a sweet vase or container, but if you don't want to cut the lonely
flowers I understand completely!

puchased here and there over the years... and a few were gifts. Some were my mothers and she was wanting to get rid of stuff. I always take most of what she is tryig to get rid of...LOL

I need to take something for it. I also skipped lunch and did not stop to get a drink or anything. I have now just drank 1/2 gallon of iced tea with my supper! I know you like coffee instead of hot tea, but do you drink iced tea? It is soooo good! With some lemon or especially lime! I've got to go get another glass! If I finsh that one that will make 3 qts!!! I am so thirsty!

Actually I use an iced tea maker! LOL They are rather new and prior to that people brewed tea as for hot tea, only more as you usually make a pitcher of it. Lots of people add sugar while it is still hot so it will dissolve. But we quit using sugar years ago and we use sweet & low. If you are making one glass only I guess you would still make it stronger, as you will be pouring it over ice. you do have to let it cool, or you wont have any ice... LOL Squeeze a bit of lime juice into the glass, add sweetner if you are not using sugar.

Isn't that nice of Karma to make an arrangement for us? It's so good aswell. Great idea of yours to start this basket case thread, and look we even have a prize!
I agree it's far to early for chrimbo stuff, jingle bells and all that.
When is thanksgiving? we don't 'do' that over here.

Karma, please would you put the pumpkin arrangement in the cafe', it would be perfect for the main entrance, thanks!

My computer has been acting up... or it may be the ISP... something is wrong. It keeps going off and is very slow... I am pretty aggrivated about it. I even tried to post a reply last night and after I typed it I tried to send and it had gone offline again and I lost my post. So I went to bed...

I had asked you why you could not see my greenhouse pics... and I cant remember what else. I may have said I might try to find some flowers this week end...

We did too when we had kids at home. It is just the 2 of us now and the kids may come here once or twice before Christmas, and actually since it is winter they probably won't come at all till Christmas. We mostly go to see them about every weekend. They are about 45 min away. They were here Thanksgiving, but I cannot stand having the tree up for Thanksgiving. One holiday at a time is enough for me! LOL We are in no rush to do it since it is just us.

I don't even do the shopping thing till I am good and ready. and then I try to do it all at once. I don't like to have to go more than 2 times anyway. Maybe when I retire it will be different.

I have not seen that forum... I will look for it.

Yes we are fine, tired but fine... I planted seeds in 330 containers this week end! I still have at LEAST that much more to do! I know it sounds crazy, but I find it very difficult not to plant at least a few containers of almost every kind of seed I have. I did eliminate a few, but not many! But here's the deal. Some of my seeds are old. and I do not know if any will germinate. Others I don't know if they are even viable seed, as they are from trades and I don't know if they are old or not. I would hate to have the only seeds I plant be all of the ones that don't come up!!! Besides, I am providing a lot of people with plants also. Almost everyone who hears how many seeds I plant asks if I am going into the plant business. No way!!! I will not sit out and sell stuff... I don't have time for that... But I have friends and family members who will be delighted to get plants from me this Spring!

It's an exciting time of year, sowing seeds, I love to scatter mixed annuals around my flower beds, just to see what I get.
I'm going to start my sweet peas off in the greenhouse this week, maybe some others too.

All kinds of annuals and perennials. Butter Daisy, Ameranthus, Mexican sunflower, Bells of Ireland, Rudbeckia, Hostas, Balsam, Balloon Flower, Moss Rose, Linaria, Cleome, Liatris, Larkspur, Clematis, Columbine, Scabiosa, Blue Woodruff, Striped Squill, Scarlett Milkweed, Poppies. Most of them I had several different cultivars... like I had about 8 different Hostas and there were a lot of seeds for some of them. I have a bunch of different poppies, rudbeckia, columbine and cleome. 2 kinds of balsam, amaranthus and larkspur, and 3 of scabiosa. I planted about 6 to 10 containers of each cultivar I had. Each container has anywhere from 4 to around 20 seeds in it. Depends on the type of seed and the size of the container. Anyway, DH counted them and there are 330 containers so far. I am not even half done.

I will be wintersowing 11 more types of seed and some of them have 2 to 4 different cultivars. I also will direct sow 9 others that are drought resistant by fences and in other places just to see what they will do if left alone. Last year we did that with some vines and they did very well. I have 50 types that I will start indoors, and 8 more to start indoors that are like trees and things that will take years to bloom. They will be wintered over in the greenhouse for years to come...LOL It will never end. And I have a lot more seeds that I am not even going to touch this year. I don't know how I will do the ones I have planned to do especilly the ones I will start indoors. I don't know where I will put them either! I will have to make room in the green house for some.

I should be able to make bouquets THIS year. You are lucky to be able to buy flowers like that! I remember when I visited Germany when my daughter and SIL were stationed there, they had flower venders in town like you are talking about. People would buy them them on their way home, along with produce & other grocery items. We do not have that where I live even in the cities. We do have produce stands in the country (I live in the country) but only in the spring and summer, where they sell local produce. But no flowers... We usually buy our food in grocery stores or Wal-Mart. You can buy flowers there, but they are already packaged up in cellophane and you have no choices. There may be a choice among PACKAGES but no individual flowers to pick from and not much variety in the packages. So that is why I like to use my own flowers (when I have them)

You have a great day also!

Hi Carol,
To cut a long story short, going here there and everywhere, she got her playstation and went to bed happy!
We didn't have time to see the flower lady, if only we had gone there first!
I am looking forward to your bouquets this year...
I bet you won't want to cut anything when your garden is blooming beautifully!!

Your garden will be so full of colour and perfume this year.

I usually can put mine out the 1st of May. You have time to winter sow if you were so inclined. You don't have to get carried aaway like I did!!! I will finish up tomorrow and spend the rest of the day in the greenhouse as I havent been out there much during this planting frenzy. DH has had to water. I need to check for pests, etc. Next weekend I will be busy so after that I will start my indoor planting. That is another thing I will do in the GH, make room for some seed pots,

I am going to start my veggies for the allotment pretty soon. I have my onions sets!!!!
Once I start, I will end up doing lots of seeds, always do. It's nice to share them with your neighbours and friends, sometimes I even take some up to my Mum in Liverpool, on the train!
I have some bulbs to plant, basically loads to do. It's nice to see someone else is organised though!
Is your greenhouse heated?

Well basket case, wheres your baskets from christmas?!!!!!
I know, you have been too busy. one day eh?
Have you ever made your own basket? I'm thinking about trying to make one!!!!! (don't laugh)

I am already enough of a basket case without trying to make one! It would probably drive me bonkers!

We run some electric heaters in th greenhouse... Don't know if I can find a better way... Costs an extra $200 or more each month for the electricity bill... I could buy a lot of new plants in th spring for that...

I will take the pics sometime this weekend. I need to charge my camera battery.

Hi Terry!

Would you believe I am still not well? I am a lot better, but this is hard to get rid of. Seedlings are doing great. But we got snow night before last. Texas weather is crazy. How are you? Is it still cold there?

Did you ever make that basket?

I thinking about using Forsythia stems, but not sure if that would work.

Sorry to hear you are still not well, it's been a long time you being under the weather, you must be fed up.
We haven't had any snow, but it's still too cold to potter around outside.
I'm getting prepared (mentally)!!! to make the treck to the allotment soon, before the weeds take over again!

Glad to hear your seedlings are doing ok, better than you, by the sound of it!
Get well soon.

Yes we are back... been busy tho. Had a garaddaughter for a week, and a grandson a day here and there! Also doing a little yardwork and housecleaning.. and a lot of laundry! Yes the cannas have been blooming, and I have had to deadhead them once. need to do so again. I don't think they look as good as last year, but it is so HOT. 105* today and tomorrow. It has been in the 100's for a while now. We haven't had any rain lately either. I had a lot of blooms to make arrangments with before our trip, but no time. Now I have time and most everything is looking pretty dead. How is London doing?

Here are some pic of flowers that I would have made bouquets with if ...

Hi Yardqueen, What a fabulous show of flowers you have there.
Would love to make an arrangement with your Hydrangas and Callas!
Is that Lantana in the lily bed? I love those.
It's been raining here for the past few days, thats why I never complain about the heat, it doesn't last very long!


Do you realise this is the longest thread on cut flowers? maybe it's time to start a new one for this year? LoL!!

LOL about the long thread! I had been noticing it took a little longer to open this thread than any other. I have wireless and it is really fast, but it takes a couple of seconds to download this page and evrything else is instant.

Thanks for the compliment on the pond. DH redid it as it had gotten to be a mess. We really enjoy it. We are going to put a bigger pump for the waterfall next time he has to clean the pump.

I wish you could get to my flowers! I don't really have the time to do it right now. I guess I will have more time next week though. I was preparing for a visit from my parents, (They live in San Antonio) but now they are waiting till Sept. to come. And yes it is lantanna. That one is 'Coonfetti' I think
