TK - thanks so much for continuing this thread!!!
I have been sneaking peaks at all the wonderful pictures in all of your gardens and loving it! Just haven't had much time to comment or post more pics this week what with school ending for my daughter and finals, and state testing, etc and all the running around driving her here and there...

not the best picture, but "In the Pink" today:
[Linked Image]

on the left is Mexican evening primrose - VERY INVASIVE!!! :p Thought I had pulled it all out last summer after I planted a few stems from my cousin's garden - it had sent out runners and was coming up all over that garden - even in the grass around it - no chance that I got it all! frown Duh perpl
on the right is Cheddar Pink Dianthus - one beautiful flush of blooms, and then maybe a flower here or there for the rest of the summer - oh, well...

keep posting those terrific pictures everyone!

I saw my first bud for the dianthus today while I was wondering around the garden. My package shows a somewhat different bloom so I'm waiting to see what comes up. The ones on my package are very lacy. "Rainbow Loveliness" does that ring a bell with you perchance? Well I'll know when they bloom lol.

TK - I have not heard of "Rainbow Loveliness" but it sounds gorgeous! There are many many different kinds of dianthus. The cheddar pinks are perennials here. The other types are more annuals, though some of them do return for a few short years, but never as large as the pinks. They are all in the carnation family.

That's good to know that they have a short life span. I killed most of them during the transplant. But I have a few left. Hopefully I will be able to save the seeds. So that I can have more next year.

Wow, nice dianthus you got there! And I feel guilty admitting I love the mexican evening primrose, but as soon as I hear 'runner' I 'run' myself! I've got greenbriar all over that is impossible to get rid of, on a runner...and it makes my stomach churn thinking about adding something like it to the yard...though at least those are pretty! smile

Alot of times, when you hear of
bad plants and their runners...
If you have very nice, soft, pliable
dirt/soil... those bad plants aren't soooooo
bad after all if you keep an eye on them..

With the softer more pliable dirt,
they are wayyyyyyyy easier to pull out
when they start to get out of hand...

How ever, if they get into the hardpan soil,
it's then it's tough to get rid of them....
Just an FYI..
(**Well, it' also makes them bigger cause of the nicer soil too...so you got to watch them that way too!!!!***)

I absolutely LOVE your picture Lynne,
very pretty together...

hard pan. Are you talking about me Weezie? laugh With the absolutely fantastic ideas you all came up with to whittle my garden expenses down to nothing, I am thinking about renting a tiller next year. That and some gypsum and that clay is a goner lol. And just watch me do some weeding then lol.

G-Mom - what a great butterfly habitat you have created! And how can you say no flower pictures today? I see nice and sunny yellow flowers in all those shots - great job! thumbup

Meg - WHAT A GREEN THUMB YOU HAVE! clp
I'm so jealous that none of your vegetation has holes in them - all my ornamental beans and a bunch of flower leaves look like swiss cheese now! :p I don't like to use chemicals, so I'm waiting it out for a bit...

I LOVE PICTURES. Great butterfly shots G-mom. You all have revitalized me, so it's time to go strip somemore branches for my edging. I'll be back in, in a little bit. Wish me luck.

Lynne, I didn't take closeups of my holes. wink laugh They're there, really! But yea, so far, I'm mostly thrilled with my results! We'll see if any of this stuff actually grows veggies on them, that are edible even! laugh

Here is the watercress giving the cannas a hard time.

Here it is giving the barberry and the marigolds a hard time. That plant learned everything it knows from me lol.

And here are the zinnia. I'm just not crazy about pink so they were a bit of a disappointment for me.

It's working great. The stuff really shrinks fast. That load of grass clipping is about half the size it was and the newspaper is pretty much carbon. I've got to get some more in there.

I think that primrose is beautiful! Wish some would work their way in to my neck of the woods! I just orderes some online along with a dwarf daylily collection to plant along my side walk next year instead of the alyssum I have been putting in! Thought I would do a prennial since most of the front is done now! I hope my daylillies fill in the border quick next year! I will be planting them this fall! It was quite a pretty assortment!
