he, he I always think of Donald O'Connor when I see those flowers. He played Cosmo in Singing in the Rain. What a great comic actor!

Shasta changed her vote (not allowed), so if I keep to the original votes so far it's 2 to 2 and Janice refusing to express an opinion. Anymore takers?

Here are the two options (in reduced image form),

first, photo #1 then photo #2

For larger images, go back about 24 hours. Final results and the truth about who took which picture will be revealed tonight.

Naw I ain't gonna hate ya - I may stop talkin ta ya, but I ain't gonna hate ya!!  ;D

Here's today's new daylily - a kinda pink/peach colour. Small plant, gonna produce just a few blooms. Hum ..., maybe I should move it in the first (newly torn down) flowerbed - will be needin some short plants there and daylilies are perfect for a slope.

I love daylilies.  When I moved to Mississippi from New York, I took some daylily tubers from my mom's yard in new York, and they did great there too.  I have often wondered why there aren't lots of them here in Seattle.  They seem to be an easy-going flower that does well in a variety of conditions.

It's a bee balm (removed/returned from/to the 2nd row, but this bunch is happily growing behind the garage) It has a citrusy fragrance.

Same Yarrow I posted a little over a week ago, but they're looking fuller (and the close-up picture I took - posting it tomorrow - actually goves some detail).

you have only one hour left to put in your vote for your favourite pic a the pale yellow lilly


Not to worry, Jocelyn - I'm pretty sure this is a native weed plant.
