I like the blue flowers meg. Don't know what they are but I like them.

Cindy is that your tropicanna cannas that bloomed on the right side? I love the picture you have of it as a baby in "water gardens". I was wondering what color the flower would be. When I get rich I'm going to see if I can buy some of those tubers(?).

I really like those "I don't knows" They are really pretty.

And I finally have a contribution lol.

[Linked Image]
This is the canna that is half burgandy and half green split right down the middle lol. I don't think it will flower this year. The nastrum really crowded it. But next year maybe.

[Linked Image]
Here are the rest of the cannas.

And the Glads FINALLY!!! Horrible picture I know but at least I got a picture.

That is a really cool plant. Is anyone collecting seeds from it? Will it grow in zone 7? Hum going to have to look up some information. I guess my self control lessons didn't work. I'm back at it again. I just can't resist the flowers.

TK, here's my patch again, with several colors of the bachelor buttons, and everything else that is growing with them!
[Linked Image]

This small patch is growing by my deck.. it was doing great, but either the weather flattened them this week, or a cat slept on them!

And ok, these aren't blooms.. anymore.

Sheri, I just started gardening this March so I missed it last year. But I've been doing my best to catch up in a hurry lol. Your batchlor buttons look like they are almost violet is that right?

Look at you go Meg. That cucumber looks big enough to eat to me. And your wildflower bed looks really sweet just like you.

I like the kitty bed idea. Maybe I better make up a flower stake that says "Kitty Bed" that would be cute. Even if I don't have a kitty. Everyone would be wondering about what kind of flower was going to come up there. lol.

tk, those flowers are almost violet. Maybe it was a bunny instead of a kitty in the flower bed.

Meg, did you plant those flowers? Very pretty.

Sheri, I did plant everything you see there, well, except for the morning glories.. I can't get rid of them.. they are everywhere in my yard! They are the wild ones, that seem to pop up from underground, everywhere! Oh, and the queen anne's lace is wild too. And of course, some grass & other normalish weeds that I can't get rid of. :rolleyes: But yea, the wildflower patch, I did. It was just a can of "bird & butterfly" wildflower seed mix from walmart. I think it was maybe $5-$6. My friend got it for me for my birthday, since she knew I loved flowers, and thought I'd like them. I flw

MissJamie, I would collect ya seeds, but I've not been paying close enough attention to the individual flowers to know which is which when they go to seed. There's so many different wildflowers in the bunch, I could end up picking ya poppies & tickseed! laugh But, I do still have a LOT of blooms of the bachelor buttons, so if I find an opportunity, I'll keep ya in mind. wink

Thanks for the links Miss Jamie. I don't think I would try it as a medicine but it is interesting reading. They sure do get tall don't they. I didn't realize that from the pictures lol. But then I never expect a flower to get 7 feet tall. I guess because I wasn't around any like that when I was growing up lol.

If you find some seeds I would love some. I have some stuff in the seed exchange if you want to trade.
