Great pictures. I took some pictures today. Caladiums, not really flowers, but so pretty, just like flowers.

We plant a lot of caladium bulbs each year. Some come back every year, but we replant.

Oh I really like the caladiums. I have several and noticed the other day that something has been seriously eating one of the so out came the spray. I love how you use them in your arrangements. Can't wait to see the next one hint hint!

Oh WOW! caladiums.. so lovely! I never had any luck with them. Them and cannas.. I always seem to manage to kill them before they get a chance to get too big.

Anyway, yes haighr, that valarian back in May was white. It does take on a faint pinkish hue before fully opening though, but the blooms on full impact are pure white!.

For those wanting ot see it, here is the link back to go and see May 2009 in the garden too!

So, OK, what is the secret to lovely caladuims and cannas?

Well I have just finished spraying mine to keep them from being eaten alive. Cannas, I didn't bother to plant mine this year, or did I? Isn't that awful just can't recall. Guess I'll know if any pop up. I do know that mine only like the very fullest sunshine that can be provided.

Dont cannas like wet?

I think caladiums prefer shade, but since I know nada about them, I am only guessing by the pictures above!

Well, here is a wild pink rose we have growing in our woods. The pic doies not do it any justice.

Yes, here in S. Texas, the caladiums need shade, mine have sun, but under my oaks. My oaks are thinned so that sun reaches the inside of the oak and plants below. I love my caladiums and mixing them is stunning. They are showy and look cool in the summer heat all summer. I hate summer but love the caladiums and crepe myrtles that do so well in the heat.

Never tried any crepes. I figure I am too wet and probably have too poor of soil. Today we did some digging and put up 4 new snowball bushes to pots, dug some honeysuckle vines and put them in pots, had a stray sweet autumn clematis that also got potted. And finally planted my blue hydrangea and some other trees and shrubs.

Did a bunch of work in the GPS. Transplanted a bunch of tomatoes and struck new cuttings of mums. coleus, begonias and theblue hygrangea along with bumping up the first cuttings I made earlier this season.

Did a bunch of weeding.

Well here is an old rose we brought from the farm. It was his mothers.

Very nice pics BB! That "strange vine" is very interesting, the way the leaves look puffy.

I like all the wildflowers you have that add to the look of your place. We have some wildflowers, but most of the blooms we have are from stuff we planted.

Here is my 1st week of June contribution...

This is part of my butterfly bed, and has attracted mostly bumble bees so far!

Agapathus. This was a really nice surprise for me as I planted seeds in pots 3 yrs ago and babies them in the greenhouse for over a year. Then we planted them in a bed and they seemed to disappear, or if they came back the next year they didn't bloom so I didn't recognize them. Yesterday I saw this and noticed a few more that now know are the long lost agapanthus!

WOW! Yardqueen, those are stunning! I started cuttings off my new Endless Summer and I am soo looking forward to having new baby bushes. I am hoping ot keep them small. Do they get big like the snowball? My snowball bush is over ten foot. tall.

Stella De Oro has started here, but that is about all of those. So pretty soon my "domestics" will be appearing here. My daylilies are just starting and yesterday I had a new seedling hybrid show up that is a child of Stella. Drat, the pic I took yesterday got erased before I could retrieve it so todays shot of it is looking rather wilty. I will have to watch it to see if it will bloom again. It was rather pretty for a new seedling! It therefore wil have no name unless I name it and register it.

The wildflowers on the prairie and in the woods though are making quite a show. Last year I took lots of daylily pics so this year I am concentrating on the prairie and woods and any dayliles I missed for new pics.

This yellow orange wildflower was only one of two that I saw down by the bog in the woods. I have never seen it before. It is almost like a marigold flower, but on a long and slender stem coming off a leaf base. Quite unusual. I have no clue as to what it is, I am going to have fun trying to ID many of the shots I am taking this year.

Here is the new blue hydrangea Endless summer that I just planted. Its the little thing to the left of the wood post. I took about 8 tip cuttings off of it to start new bushes and I noticed this morning that ont of the tip cuttings that I rooted a short while ago also has a blossom budding. I doubt it will be a full show as tiny as the cutting is, but I will show you that later.

Thanks again Sally for the kudos!

Grrr.. between the goofy new camera and my PC doing stupid.. I took a series of shots that I have been trying to extract for 2 days... some how the photos got into my spam file. Sheeeeesh. Good thing I thought to look in there before I gave it up. Well here they come.

Then topping that.. some of my other mails were spammed.. so well, now I am even more behind. SO so sorry if anyone here did not get any reply. Computers.. some days...

Well anyway, getting back to the photos...here they are...

This is a fern out in our woods.. I am not so sure if it is not an ostrich fern... but sure looks like one

Well, the focus of this shot was lost in bad lighting so I am going to have to shoot this again. But that big tree in the middle is an oak tree. It jas a huge parasite growing on it called poison ivy... the ivy literally covers this huge oak from toe to head, then the floor of the tree is surrounded by ground growing poison ivy... nasty if you are allergic. So far in 10 years of lurking in the woods and constantly in this weed.. no rashes ...yet... and we mow it, walk through it and it gets on our clothes, on our equipment and the urisol that is in the plant is on our everything. You really have to be careful if you have the allergy. Some people quake at he sight of this nasty weed!

Extracting this picture today has really made my day! It is the second of daylilies here to bloom. It is a brand new born seedling here that is a child of Stella de oro. It is the first of its kind! I am so hoping it has picked up Stellas reblooming charactoristic! I is the same size as Stella, but look at that lovely eye!

It is an open pollinated flower, by that I mean, it was pollinated by some incect and not by human hands.

Sally, Lol at the Beetle Blooms! Glad you liked our pics!

BB, were you saying for me to post something on the bog forum? Or were you talking to someone else?

Poison Ivy... my DH is one that just has to walk by it to break out. Winds up having to go to the dr. for shots/ rx's. He has had it 2 x's just recently and both times he had been planting stuff in an area by a fence on our land. We have yet to see the culpit yet though. It's hiding there somewhere though!

If I have a secret, I don't know it either! LOL I just water them and feed them plain ole MG. Sometimes the ready to feed and sometimes the shake and feed. I really do need to do "the recipe" they talk about on the brug forum, but I haven't mixed any up. I have the ingerdients...

I think right now they have been enjoying the weather we have had and I think they also are celebrating getting out of the greenhouse! Most of them were in the greenhouse in tubs of water from Nov to April! That is really not good for them.

Blossom you have your spiderwort in a great area when it can run wild and free, as for mine it encroaches everything around it, hence my dislike. I havent seen or even thought of milkweed since I was a kid, thanks for the memories of playing with those pods.
Yardqueen how do you root hydrangea. Yours is lovely, I transplanted mine from last year and think it looks a lot better in the new spot. Have to laugh when you say they bloom even when tiny as I have had mine for 10 years and have yet to get one single bloom. That salmon rose is a real beauty. Agapanthus that is quite stunning as I really like the unusual!

It rained and stormed so hard a tree came down and I could not get to our house the usual route then I was stranded in the car for 1/2 hour as I could not get into the house because of the marble size hail would have crushed my tiny skull LOL, and then the temps dropped and 3 hours later there is still ice on the deck and nasturiums and in the yard?

Haighr, you just have to do what my hub did when it was hailing here and he ran out in it to get the horses off the pasture. He took my deep boil pot and put it over his head for armour!! LOL! Stupid animals though, they wanted to stay out in the hail. Guess the horrible loud noise of the stones pelleting the steel shed was enough to make them want to endure the hardship of teh hails nasty massage!.

When our storm was over we took a drive in the country and you could see a rainbow at one end of the horizon and a pile of hail where the storm had ended and as it laid in the fields between rows of corn. Truly a nasty, but awesome sight of nature. We had some devastation. I had over 5000 mum plants I had started and it was opening day of my greenhouse at the old farm and wham. What a mess! I had fractured mums and mum pots everywhere! Had to close the next day!




Here is a bloom I cannot get enough of and that is coreopsis. It makes a stunning show and is one that I would love to see scores of out on our prairie. The finches and orieles love it!

Got through fine here thanks for askin. My Steve did come to the door with a huge tray over his head to come and rescue me, but it was lightening so badly that I opted to just stay in the car with my ears covered, it was like being in a tin can with somebody hammering on the lid, I know how you animals musta been frightened to be in the barn.
The coreopsis that I have does spread but quite slowly so may be a while before you have a field full, but it is pretty stuff isn't it.

Oh those nasty slugs. I try to keep everything sprayed and got an earlier start this year. The leaves look like my elephant ears with all those holes. The ears weren't eaten they were pummeled with the ice storm as were several other plants. Will have to post a pic of the leaves as it tore right through them. The rain might make for a soggy mess but your roses look fab and you have rose of sharon already, wow!
blossom, that rye grass has really taken off - that galladaria sure is pretty, do you have a lot of them?
yardqueen, I believe that dahlias are my alltime favorite, but that peachy hibiscus is something that really catches the eye isn't it?

Yardqueen, stunning pics! I am sooo drooling on that Endless summer! So far no blooms here on mine, but I have quite a few new starters of it started!

That orange daisy I think is a Mexican daisy maybe?

Hmmm chasteberry, my friend was feeding those to her horse for holistic reasons. The horse has cushings.

Such stunning pics once again!

Haighr, no mountain, just 25 acres of native growth on a sand pond and prairie with pasture and about 3 that are planted in daylilies and other perennials. Kinda a hobby gone awry.. I keep getting things sent to me for some strange reason!! LOL BUt I love it! I think I am going to start a photo book of the plants here. YOu can see all my plants on my trade list.. but right now it is not up to date and I have suspended trading until I have caught up with the peopl I have promised.

I keep posting them there because its easier for me to log them there then a journal.. some how it got extensive!

This year has been my year to shot the prairie, pond plants and perennials. Last year I did mainly daylilies.

Terri,

Chasteberry

http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/showimage/39966/

http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/1188/

Plant files does not include the name "Chasteberry" but it does have that name as well as the others... like "Monk's Pepper" for the same reason. It has to do with one of the effects of the herb. The following is very interesting information on the uses of the "berry," especially the historical information at the bottom of the page. I think a lot of people call it Vitex.

Terri, I am not sure exactly what cushings is and will have to google that one. But the berries are supposed to be some homeopathic remedy to help. But she has trouble with her feet and is to fat all the time. Personally I think the fat part is from the wrong feed and not enough exersize and well, I got my other opinions about the mare.. but that is me.

Well today I had a lovely surprise in the garden.. my Realms Of Glory daylily was a blooming..here it tis!

I also had a yellow daylily blooming...this one is called SWEETIE FACE! Its a happy little bloom and very prolific...this is last years pic. Im running out of disc space so I am not going to be shooting many fresh daylily pics, but will bring last years up as they bloom this year. They have not been on Daves yet so they will still be new to everyone! So pardom me if I cheat a little. (If you think I had lots of daffodils.. try some 500 varieties of daylilies...!) This is gonna be a long thread

500 - omg - I am suffering from plant envy!
I read your post earlier about how many dayliilies etc you had planted & was green with envy.
I have a suburban yard, big compared to many modern yards here but no 1/4 acre paradise either...
right now trend is 1/8 acre sections or less.
Courtyard gardens are the in thing - but raised vege plots are 'da bomb'.
The recession has some things to be grateful for.

Well, dont be too green with envy.. the weeds this year as ever are atroushious.

I have been collecting for over 25 years. In that time I have moved more than 3 times. The last move we dug and dug and potted and moved and planted and it just never stops! We literally moved one acre of daylilies and other perennials when we came here. Now we are near 3 acres in beds. I help folks thin beds and get a lot of my plants from them and do trading and its just a hobby gone to obsession and awry!!. LOL! I have beds that flood out and so I am always trying to fill holes, but my main stay here seems to be the daylilies! Daylilies nd daffodils.. they both do good in my swamp!

This year I thought I would hang it up.. so hang it up I have been doing... I got baskets everywhere now. Have not tried any daylilies in baskets.. I think that is going a wee tad too far! Although the thought has just entered my mind... PennysWorth might be the one to try that with!!! LOL!. I think I need to see a shrink...betterstill my chiropractor!

Here is Sally Farley.

Kong is huge, the pot it is in is 12 inches. If I could have gotten a pot bigger, I am sure KONG would go with it too. I am betting mine is stunted as I am not fertilizing. I got baby KONGS! Started a few cuttings and they took.

Here is Prairie Blue Eyes.. My days are starting. Stella has gone to full blown bloom.

they are all so pretty & not something I see much of, we have assorted lilies available but I don't have any.
I did splash out & bought myself 3 hellebores today.
I went to look for orphans & noticed the hellebores were selling quickly again - I missed out last year because I was to cheap to pay $5.00 per plant.
So this time I went for it.
I had 3 given to me by my boss form her garden, no idea what kind they are but they look to be doing well so I put the others in the same area.
I should have taken a photos but it was getting late - my task for the morning.
It is meant to be a toasty warm 1C ...

Well, dalfyre, if you stick with me you wioll be seeig alot of daylilies.. I am a collector gone daft!

The heat indexes here have been to a killing degree. We had rain. The rain is great on the daylilies, but the humidity I can do without. I think the humidity and teh moisture is what makes some of them get more petals than normal too.Everything is growing faster than it can be cared for. Today its sunny, bonna get hot and its the kinda day you will sweat while just sitting. No releife. Its gonna be a baaaad summer.

Yesterday I ambled out through our pasture and took a walk through some standing water and it was almost hotter than bath water...Steam city. Derned near boiled my feet. Tending animals has been a bear. I have to get out to check on the stock every few hours make sure everyone is getting water. Got an old mare who needs more attention and a obese mare that is real pain in the but with her overeating.

Welp, drink lotso water! Cheers mate! Catch ya at the cafe. My picture taker is being a slug again... ugh.

BB you be extremely careful in that heat and make sure you are well hydrated as well, perhaps stop in the cafe before and after every trip.
Your daylilies are giving a splendid showing. I mostly just have yellow and don't know why I don't have other colors???
dalfyre, I have helleborus they are quite pretty and bloom for a long time here from March through June.

Thanks Haighr, sorry to say its probably coming your way.

Well, I did check the critters and they were fine Im ok too. I can take the heat. But try to do things systematically so not to over do.

I am soooo peeved at that person who left a poor little dog in a vehicle on the weekend. Makes ya wanna scream bullets. Some people are so undeserving. We have seen parents do this to kids too and oh man... makes the blood boil.

It's a pleasure to look at your collections Lily!
I only have 3 different Daylilies and I've been waiting for you to show the one's I have. LoL!
I think the last one Stella De Oro is one of mine!! must take a picture, it's started to flower.

Have I got wild strawberries Candee?, I thought that was brambles!!
Thanks for the Hebe link dalfyre, I would like some new ones, they are on my Autumn shopping list..
The one above used to be varigated, the odd green leaf would appear and as long as I kept removing the green leaves it was ok. This year, due to neglect, all the leaves have turned green... oh well, such is nature!

With my lack of space, and since daylilies are not the greatest cut flowers (though Blossom has shown that they come in all colors and forms) I have kept my inventory of daylilies down to 3 different ones too.

Peonies, on the other hand, I have just ordered 4 more, bringing the herbaceous up to 20. Not sure where I will put them though.
Some Gallardia in bloom - not the best cut flowers either, but it does have a long blooming period so I keep a few around for color in odds and ends spots. Wish they would not spread so much - spend soooo much time pulling them up. You can see in the photo how many seeds are ripening. I can't keep up with the deadheading.

Heat wave at 82 degrees ????? LoL. We are over 100 for three days in a row now - got up to 108 degrees F yesterday. I finally went into the swimming pool.
I like that vase too Terri, but it is a 31/2 inch by 9 inch rectangle and it takes a lot of flowers (or several substantial stalks) to fill it up. I could rig up something to hold tthe stems upright - next rainy day project I guess (with the dry summer, next rainy day will most likely be in October)

hmmm - if you are having a heat wave we must be having a cold wave...
it was all of 7C at the warmest.
YardQueen the hellebores were $4.99 at 'the Warehouse'
I think it is what you guys call a 'box store'...

I transplanted this yucca last year and it is blooming again. It keeps coming up in the old spot as well and I finally had to RU it to get rid of it over in the sun garden.

Hi Hiaghr, yes, if you do not dig ALL the yucca root, it will come back again and again. You can start yucca easy, just take about an inch of the root and plant it. Its like a derned potato. If you catch an "eye" on it, it will grow!
