Nassau County, NY(Zone 7a)

Ok Guys, trying to catch up, but Dh is around and looking for attention, so i'll try to be quick but meaninfull!
Cindy your dental thing and all, grrrrrrr, hate dentist, they make me so scary, I hope the surgery with the baby goes ok, keep my fingers crossed! Sorry i did not get to mail your babies, they are ready and waiting though, hopefully by wedsn, ok

Martha, I love your comments about our looks but we are not that great looking you know, just normal, lol, love what you said though, I showed it to the kids and DH, hee, hee!

I think Kim is getting closer, haa, haa, Martha $1.99 here in expensive Nassau County, mnmnmnmn, NOpe, keep guessing, Clemen

Ripley, MS

I will guess 4.99 and also donate to Kim if I win !! I do not grow catcus because of my grands. I don't want them gettiing stuck. I don't like to get stuck either, come to think about it-LOL

Martha I have had lots of the ones ID ed by Paul as Gulf Frittary. I have about 20 of them flying around the long daylily bed by the road every morning. I have only seen a couple of yellow ones though
I don't know much about them, just enjoy watching them fly around

Here is one yellow one I got a picture of but don't know what kind it is.
I have lots of bees and hummingbird moths on my bee balm.

I couldn't possibly address all of the above , but I'm so glad ya'll are having fun. Well, I'm off to Lowes tomorrow. Wonder what I will be looking for :) Clemen thanks for introducing me to the Euphorbia obesa. I love odd plants and that one is a must have. Got too hot today in the yard, so I'm going to go take it easy.

Clemen does your tag have a name on it?

It's good news indeed, if Sandra gets many of those G.F. known hostplants are passionflowers. So yes, indeed they're migrating toward us, soon enough. (A concensus from the hummingbird/butterflies forum -- there, in Texas, they begun to find Queens/Mornarches -- hostplants milkweeds), I've seen a few G.F. several weeks back, but I've so many birds and wasps in my very own garden so I can't say for sure not to mention spiders, beneficial bugs to some, deadly to others... It's intriquing to watch mother nature works her mysterious way.

Clemen, I think we're all gave out on the guessing game. Thanks for introducing us to the unique cactus. It's a fun plant. Thanks all for your kind donation. I don't have a thing to reciprocate, thus I'd politely decline.
Happy gardening everyone.

p.s. this pic. is for Debbie; just to see how fast the crinum Milk and Wine flower scape develops. It shot up 4-6 inches over night, and I'd guess it would be fully open by the morning. ^_^

Ha, I knew I saw a tiny scape in the picture yesterday and I forgot to ask you about it. Go girl. I'm so glad you blessed me with some of your pretties. I'm going to enjoy them so much. Good healthy plants.

Central, AL(Zone 7b)

Debbie, there was a good article about these very plants (crinums zone 7-11) written by a fellow DGer from Alabama the other day. Did you see it? If not, I've tagged it and will pull it up for you if needed.

Good night everyone, I'm calling the night. Over and out.

p.s. My most fav. tropical hibiscus, a NOID.

Thanks to all of my precious friends on DG. Thanks soooooo much Clemen. And a yankee peyote at that. LOL

Fayetteville, AR(Zone 7b)

Ah thank you! I'm really a Christine, but Crissy, which is a nickname I used to use when I was a child, was the only thing not taken, and I didn't want to use my cat's name on this website LOL

Ahhhhhhh Crissy, beautiful pics of you and DH, he is a keeper alright! hee, hee. So what is your cat's name?
Debbie, I have my peyote cactus in full sun, bring it indoors for the winter. When Spring time comes, he goes out and then blooms.Also there are markings on the body of it and they really show some color when exposed to the sun, no thorns. I will wrapp it up today along with Cindy's purple plant, Have a nice day everyone, Clemen

Fayetteville, AR(Zone 7b)

Cat's name is Tiga (Teega) She's so spoiled it is not even funny LOL

Clemen: the "gingerbread" cactus is so cute!

Crissy, beautiful pictures! Those wedding photos are outstanding! Were they taken on one of the lakes here in Arkansas? True to cat nature, Tiga seems to be overseeing her domain! LOL

I have to take DH to the eye doctor today at UAMSC(Univ. Ark. Medical Sciences Center). DH is blind in one eye and his "good" eye is developing a cataract so we are hoping that they will schedule surgery on the good eye so he can see again.
You "girls" have a good day! I'll be back later.


Central, AL(Zone 7b)

Best of lucks and all the blessing for your hubby's pending procedure Marilyn. Will include him in our daily prayers.
Christine, wonderful pics. of your wedding. Tiga likes Marilyn commented, is king and it shows. lol.

What is that an ice-box?

Hope everything goes well today, Marilyn. Maybe they will schedulde his procedure soon.
