Finally went out and took some pics today - and some good ones too.

Got a couple of these 'view' pics. The buttercup (or as I like to call em, buttons) are really showing well. A lady came over today to look at my selections and said she'd be back for poenies and those buttons.


lush is the w-o-r-d  ;D

So you like iris, hun?

Here's the 4th variety from my garden (after the bi-coloured, the yellow [both dwarf] & the purple [medium height])

These are the first of the large (not giant) variety. Pale blues - and there'll be dozens of em. - maybe even over a hunderd.

Yesterday I put some tomato seedling in the garden. Of the seeds Bryan removed from the juice leftover from the canned tomatoes I prepared last fall, there have been hunderds of seedlings.

I planted 42 of em yesterday evening - and that didn't even use up one eighth (6 of 48) of what I've got. Thought I'd plant em in rows - separating them by an inch or two. The real question is not how many of em will survive. It's whether or not it's too late to start up from seeds.

One thing for sure, they sure look healthy. (picture taken less than 12 hours ago)

Oh, and when I said there'd be maybe as much as a hunderd of the pale blue iris, I wasn't kidding. And that's just in the front yard.
There's likely to be more in the back yard. Not to mention Bryan took maybe as many as 50 plants to his condo last fall.
