Lots o pics -



The neighborhood cat (Lucy iirc) protecting the asiatic lilies for Toirtis.




Speaking of which...




The lighting could be better, but the detail is there.




Orange red daylily.




Some daisies cut before they get tore up from the weather - another favorite of mine.




Detail of the daisy's "face". (Dig this pic - love that macro! )




Dahlia blossom; these are smaller plants and flowers about 2.5" across. They're doing fairly well but the flowers get tore up pretty quickly. The ants are not included.




And finally some bean blossoms - we're hoping the bunnies don't get to these before we do.

(Wow, lots o pics is right!)

Nice lilies....I only have a couple so far, but hope to have a small area dedicated to several types next year.

They're great plants and they have quite a flowering 'season'.

Here is my pride and joy. I just wish I could keep all the snails from eating them.

Thanks Cindy. It looks like one because of the leaves, but it's not. I'm not sure the correct name for it, but this flower only blooms at night.

My mother actually gave me just one leave 3 years ago and this is what it looks like every year. You plant the leave down in the dirt and that's it. Pretty amazing.

Here are my white flowers.

snails or slugs???
I Know it works for slugs... open beer... drink it.... cut lid off of beer can... bury can up to rim.... fill can with cheep beer.... slugs like the yeast or maybe the hops, they fall in the can, cant climb out, and drown. I would imagine it would work with snails too... its worth a try

Thanks Melody. Definitely worth trying, especially the drinking beer part.

Dig the flowers, Fawn! The white ones are gorgeous; they look like they belong on a cactus. :p

I got some new pics this wknd (surprise surprise. )





This pepper is entirely too big for the plant it's growin on. :p




We have beans!




Daisies!




Not sure what this tree is; it's about 3m, wiht these 3" blooms. I suspect it's a type of crepe myrtle, but I'm not sure. Can anyone ID for me?




Another type of daylily; different shape/color.




I like this pic; freshly watered daylily and mum (on the left).




A hosta bloom, from below, another pic I'm quite happy with. :beams:




The end of blooming week display; my wife did a good job on this arrangement, I think.
