OHHHHHHHHH pretty Diane!

Wrennie - I have some white coneflowers that are doing well here (don't even recall ever planting white, but it blooms every summer), and lots of baby plants beneath the one white and several pink that are growing together. I wouldn't know which babies are which, but would you like me to bring you some to summer camp?

I just potted up a bunch today to bring to the BBQ we are going to in Carmel soon, but I'm sure there will be others by the time I go up to you.

Wrennie The white cone flower came back from last year,, I bought an established one last year and planted it hoping it would come back biggger this year I believe it was a 6" pot last year. When the flowers dried up I sprinkled the seeds around where I had planted it.

I have a red asiatic lilly that always blooms red. It bloomed red this year, we've been in a drought, and the blooms didn't last long. Now it has a white bloom on it and more white buds. I've had this plant probably 5 years and this has never happened. How wierd.

I love Spirea ! Peonys too. My last house had dark pink ones. I dont like the ants though. My bank has mini pink roses and dianthus outside blooming right now. The spirea is in full bud! The stella d'oros are all budding too.

Pretty nml. I think those first ones are sold here as houseplants why

I seen some speria and turned it down cause was over $4.I grow a peoney that teases me with one bud every year and it turns brown never bloming.Its nice seeing somebody can grow one to bloom.

Tamara when it seems to hang loading the pics hit the refresh button on browser or F5 and then it will reload and most times the pics will pop right up.I've dial-up on ancient phone lines from the 70s....ya learn things.I have problems with the larger pics loading the clickables load faster.the peoney was forever loading.I was able to refill both hummer feeders and return it barely showing half the pic.(I nuke my syrup 3 min)

Very pretty flowers everyone!

I have some daylilies blooming that I will have to get pics of to show. I would have lilies to show but the buds got so big they were ready to open and some d@rn deer came and ate every single bud off of them! I was very mad! :mad: Time to get some deer repellent I guess!

I can try that! I have put human hair out there and Irish spring soap! I even tried a homemade deer repellent that somebody gave me the recipe for. Guess it didn't work! Or maybe I need to apply more often! why I will try the dryer sheets though!

No it can't! I will let you know if it works! The ate the tops off of all my phlox too so I don't know if those will bloom this year now or not! why They didn't even have any flowers on the yet! If nothing else works, I am going to get a motion activated sprinkler and put it out there at night so they leave it alone! They ate my lilies last year too but nothing else! The crazy thing is that I have heard the hostas are like candy to deer but they haven't touched them once! why
