They are beautiful, 2wondery. I can't wait to post some pictures of mine. My sister gave me something from her friends garden that we don't have a clue what it is. Do you mind if I post it here? Maybe someone could identify it for us.
Great idea for a thread. I'll post at least one picture later today.
Beautiful roses! I have nothing yet to take pictures of, my gardens are just starting to grow.
>2 Of Course!
You'll note I got the same kind of assistance from this group already.
Oh I love this thread. Looking forward to seeing whats growing for everyone!
Wow, Mags, I was able to peek at some of your other photos on Flicker. Great shots! Greta Garbo is a real cutie-pie, too.
That dragon looks like it could skarf up some strawberries - hope he's well trained.
Thanks, I like Greta Garbo's looks too. She is a sweet as she is cute. Sleeping right next to me, on the sofa, as I type.
ETA: for those of you who'd like to look at the Flickr pictures I am Photomaggie there.
Here's the back shady area by the fence this evening. The hydrangeas are out, and everyone is enjoying the cooler weather.
All these pictures are so beautiful! We were just able to start planting this week. I can't wait until mine look like that. Patience, I guess.
I will post progress pictures. I can't wait to see yours. The color of your Irises are so vibrant.
Do your siberian iris like to have their feet wet? Or do they need "good drainage" like almost all plants?
I have a perfect place for them in front of my little stone wall, the foot of which is frequently swampy.
Maggie1944--Siberian Iris usually do well in wet spots. They are generally tolerant of both sogginess & drought.
I have those irises too, but a Japanese lady gave them to me and she called them Japanese irises :) One patch is in a dampish place and the other is in a dry place and they both grow far too well.
The coneflowers are just come in. These plants bloom for me from now until October, pretty much continuously.
I'm finally mostly caught up with just the mowing, and can focus a little bit of attention on weeding and trimming. I finally gave up on my gas push mower because IT*#^WOULD%@(NOT*+%^START! and I bought an electric model. It's kindofa pain to manage the cord, but I'm developing a style that is closer to vacuuming. I love the velvety look and feel of the lawn just after mowing.
It is a wonderful looking "old fashioned" house. I've wanted one of those square houses forever. Probably not happening, in this lifetime. Thanks for sharing your backyard.
