NEW: new: iris~hosta & daylilies oh my!! swap year 3 :0)

flowergirl34(5 Upstate NY)July 3, 2014

Happy July Everyone!
I've been hosting this swap for the last couple of years and have had so much fun I think we need to do it for a third!! :D

WELCOME TO THE IRIS~ HOSTA & DAYLILIES OH MY!! SWAP :0)

This is the perfect time of year for splitting these plants. So this will be a plant only swap.

As always...the rules:

1. Since this is a plant only swap, let make it a good one. This is for named varieties only of Iris, Daylilies and Hosta's. Sorry, no noid's for this swap. Since not everyone grows all of these and not everything you have is available for splitting...you can pick and choose what you would like to send.

2. You must send at least 6 named plants. Please check out your swap partners wish list and lets see if we can fulfill some :). After all that is why we all have them. :) Please send only boxes you yourself would wish to receive.

3. Please use the Med. Flat Rate Priority Box or Box of equivalent size. You can fit a lot of plants in that box :) Post here when you mail, and when you receive, so we can all enjoy your box with you. Don't forget to post your tracking as well.

4. Sign-ups are till Monday, July 14.

Partners will be assigned on Tuesday, July 15.

Please mail by Saturday, August 26th.

This is an open swap. Everyone is welcome to join. Although I do ask that you please be a swapper in good standing on the GW.

We are keeping it simple in summer...trying to Beat the Heat :)

Come on!! You know you wanna sign up!! :D

I'll sign up. I can send 6 named DL's but I need to receive back evergreen or semi-evergreen because the dormants don't do well here. My trade list has my favorite colors but I'm open to all. :)

Morning Everyone!! I hope everyone had a nice fourth!

We had the family cookout followed by some sparklers and S'mores at the firepit. Very low key. So nice to just take a break!!

What did you all do?

WELCOME SHIRLEY AND SUE!!!
Your our first to sign up. Hopefully we have some more joining us :)

Yes, Shirley, I was surprised by this iris too. I didn't think it would be such a producer and stuck it way off to the side. My mistake, its getting move up front this year. :) I just could believe all the buds and them all flowering at the same time. And best part of all...I didn't have to stake it!! Some of the bigger ones will fall almost to the ground and snap. Not this fella. Wonderful iris!

Sue, what are evergreen or semi-evergreen? Are they daylilies? Or are you open to iris and hostas as well? So sorry for the confusedness...maybe its too early for me yet :)

I'll be posting a game on Sunday :D

Will check back later. Have a great day!!

I'd like to play again. I'm afraid that my Iris' have not done well this year, so I will have mostly or even all named daylilies this year, if that is okay.

Evening!!

WELCOME ALANA AND CINNIE0!! So glad you could join us!

Alana, I had the same problem with quite a few iris' this year. The extreme cold we had did a number on some of them :( I completely lost 3 varieties.

Cinnie, all you need is 6 anything beyond that is gravy :)

Morning!!

Cinnie, I don't understand? Are you asking about mixed daylilies? If so, then sorry no, we're just swapping named for named. I hope this helps.

Going to be a beautiful day here! Digging some iris for a swap this morning and then...dum dum DUM...getting started on our haybale turtle :D I'm a little nervous so I keep putting it off. I know what I would like it to look like in my head. It's just getting it too look that way may be a little difficult. The kids can't wait to paint, lol. Wish us luck! We'll need it :)

Have a great Sunday!!

~~~~GAME TIME~~~~~GAME TIME~~~~~~GAME TIME~~~~~GAME TIME~~~~~~

Okay, so I'm stealing this idea from the OBF game they just played, lol.

Yesterday we went to Lake Ontario for the afternoon. Kids had such a great time!! Below is a picture of the rocks we 'liberated' from the beach, lol.

The question is: HOW MANY ROCKS ARE IN THE MASON JAR?

HINT: The jar is 1 foot tall. It is the large, large mason jar type. I love using them for vases.

First person to guess correctly wins...........

I would like to swap. I have hosta and daylilies that are named. The iris are all mysteries until they bloom. I do need info on how to send--do you trim your day lilies and send bare root? How many lily plants in a group? Hostas in soil in a little pot or with a baggie rubberbanded around root ball?

frankielynn, I can tell you how I send plants. Others may do it differently. With hosta's a lot of times the leaves are so large that you need to trim them back. I also wash the roots to remove any excess dirt. Then wrap them in a damp paper towel and then damp newpaper. Then wrap in plastic and rubberband/ and also sometimes use tape, just for good measure. Then you need to put a label on it somewhere. Some people include a plant stake and just tape it to the outside. That's usually what I do. I also do the same thing for daylilies although other people ship them differently.

Iris' should be completely washed and trimmed. Tops cut to a few inches from the rhizome and roots trimmed. I like to label mine with a black sharpie right on the leaves. They then should dry out in the sun for a few hours to get good and dry before you pack them. Some people even dig and cut one day and pack the next.

Hope this helps :-)

Been so crazy around here. Had a teacher workshop this morning. Now getting ready for my county fair's plant swap. Billion last minute things need to get done. And, lets not forget the haybale turtle that needs to be finished, lol. The shell is sitting half painted on my dining room table as I type, hahahaha.

Will check back in later...

Oooooohhhhh!! So many of you are so close!! But no winner yet...

Shirley, that is a gorgeous daylily!! I always trickle toward the orangey yellowy reds...but for some reason I sure do have a LOT of purple and pink in my yard, lol!

Only have 20 more plants to pot up for my swap and I'll have my 100. Dug up Daylily Prissy Miss ( a HUGE clump) for a raffle and Taylor and I made a very large sedum fairy garden in the crazy large pot we had donated from Lowes. It is so big it almost looks like a wash bin! Put 5 different sedums in it and the frog Lowes also donated and it looks pretty good. It's SO heavy. I think hubby is going to help load that up, hahaha.

Now, just need 1 more raffle plant and I'll be done with those. The problem is I can't seem to pick just one. I have a few, but, I'm trying to guess what people would like. I'll just have to pick one...maybe the tried and true eenie, meenie, minney, moe approach, lol.

I did receive some cute yard stakes from dollar general this year. One with a bouncy blue bird on it and another with tomatoes going up this metal trellis. Still have to pick up 1 hanging basket for another raffle from a local hardware store.

Lots of running to do today :D

Have a great day!!

They survived the tough winter just fine. I have enough of them that I can pass them along in the trade and the rest would be daylilies. Love my hosta but have no idea on names! Kathie

WELCOME!!! KATHIE! I remember you from I believe the first year we had this swap...welcome back!!! Feel free to join our guessing game :)

Kathie, I am a rock lover!! I've been collecting now for over 10 years. I go out into corn fields and dig up new treasures all the time.Over the years, I have a lot of treasures now, lol. I got a few really neat ones from an old barn foundation. You can still see the old chisel marks where they were made to fit by hand! What craftsman!

Shirley, the dwarfs are quickly becoming a favorite for me. They are so easy to take care of, and they bloom so early. Just when you don't think you can handle anymore cold, windy snow around here...there they are. One of my first spring welcomers.

Good morning everyone! And HAPPY SUNDAY!

So sorry I didn't post yesterday. My plant swap at the fair had me pooped! We get there around 7am to set up and don't leave till about 4 in the afternoon. We had quite a few people show up. Had over 300 plants! I even got a Dragon's Blood Sedum!! I'm so tickled!

I took some pictures of our Bunzie turtle haybale. I'll post them later (still pooped). I'm happy to say we have defended the title again this year. This is our 5th year of first's :D Taylor was jumping when she found out, lol.

We had another very interesting fun event happen yesterday as well. Taylor and Billy got to show in the Dairy Cow SHOW! They made up the Little Britches Class :D We "borrowed" a couple of baby calves and off they went. The judge was so nice! Billy's cow took him for a walk instead of the other way around. In fact she was going right out the door and he was too, lol! hahaha

They had so much fun!!

Today is the Pet Show. We have to be there around noon to register. Dozer and Cash will be making their debut along with Billy's hermit crabs: Hermey and Capt. Crabby Claws, lol :D Wish them luck!

Cotton, if you'd like to join we'd love to have you. :)

WELCOME!!! SHERI!! SO GLAD YOU COULD JOIN US! I rec'd your emails and sounds great! :D

WELCOME!!! COLCOL!! GLAD TO HAVE YOU!!! What kind of daylilies do you have? I just love all the different kinds.

I went to Lowes the other day and found Daylily: Cosmopolitan. The flower heads were dwarf! I keep thinking about it and I think I'm headed back there this week to get it. When you've been thinking about a plant for 4 days...you should go get it, lol :)

WOO HOO!!! WE HAVE A WINNER!!!!!!!!!!!!

CONGRATULATIONS!!! COLCOL!! :D

Yes, we've put 85 fish in so far this summer. This morning went down to check on them and could only see 2...hoping they are all hiding and not in some belly's already.

Col, can you please email me your addy. I'll mail it out when I mail out cinnie's prize :) Thanks!

Hope everyone has been in contact with your partners.

Suzanne, I got your email. Thanks! :)

I'll probably be sending out next week. I still haven't recovered from last weekend and this week so far I've been dodging rain drops trying to get things done. And, this weekend is my little Billy's birthday party! Whew...summers around here go by too quick!

Does anyone else have any weekend plans?

I'll start thinking of a new game to play and will post tomorrow...:D

Yes, Jayeanne. I can't believe how dark it is myself! And for dumb lucks sake, lol, I planted it next to my Sunday Gloves Daylily (pictured below). And it makes it look even darker next to that. Finally, I did something right, right out of the gate.

Good Morning!

WOW! And the boxes are starting to fly :D Love It!

Kathie that sounds like an amazing box! Love the melon hand wash! Smells so gooooood!

We finally had a break from the crazy heat yesterday afternoon. It poured! And after a nice breeze came in. Great time to work in the garden. I was out till almost 9. Weeds, weeds, weeds....my mantra for this summer. :) I still have 3 plants to plant from my plant swap 2 weekends ago, lol. 2 look great in their pots, and 1 is just sad :( I better buckle down and plant him today. He's a potentilla shrub. Yellow one, and I already have 3, but no one picked him at the swap and I couldn't just leave him their. Now I need to figure out a place to put him????

Oh my goodness! I totally forgot to share with you our newest 'arrival'. Was down at the pond the other night feeding what's left of the fish and noticed something moving in my floating hearts. It was about a foot long and dark! I didn't think the snake we've had down their all summer could get that big or that dark, so I sat quietly and waited for it to move. Looked like a shiny rock...TILL ITS HEAD POPPED UP! A BABY MUSKRAT!! is living in my pond! I don't know whether to be flattered that he thinks he can live here year round or horrified? Taylor googled what they eat and they eat EVERYTHING!! Fish, crayfish, snakes, frogs, tadpoles, baby turtles...and every pond plant that I have!

For a few days now I had been blaming the kids for knocking things in the pond. We have little frog and toad hidey holes all over and plastic animals. Every morning I find a few in the pond. Who would do it? So I assumed the kids...nope! He was lifting them and pushing them over looking for something to eat!

The sad thing is he really is kinda cute...like a guinea pig who loves the water, lol. He looks really cute when he's swimming through my floating hearts and eating all the flower heads off.

The kids have already named him "Louie". hahaha
Yesterday, Taylor runs down in the morning and really loud you hear "GOOD MORNING LOUIE!!" The neighbors must think we've all gone crazy!

Ahhhhhh....that felt better to get the Louie rant off my chest...thanks.

Vina... I don't blame Louie for moving-in. You've got a muskrat paradise there. I wonder where he came from? You'll have to get a hidden camera out there to film his antics. Thank you for sharing all your flower photos, too. So beautiful!

Vina-Your bearded irises must have been gorgeous this year..beautiful pictures. So funny about Louie. DH spotted a white Crane at our pond so I'm sure he is looking for some Dinner. Trouble is they are all huge and he can never get them out of the pond.

Good morning everyone!

Aaahhhh Louie! Where can I begin? Since his arrival he has knocked over just about everything. Eaten 1 of our snakes (now, I can't confirm he killed it, but I did see him munching on it yesterday...can I say eeeewwwwww) And, he has single handedly mowed down almost all the flowers of my floating hearts. I did see him taking down my water celery last night. I want to be upset with him, but, I just can't. He's so little. Maybe a foot long. I told the kids he's like having another toddler running around. You just have to fix everything after he's finished with it. Bunzy (our paint turtle) and her two new paint turtle friends who showed up a few weeks ago, Bubba and Penelope (the kids named them, lol) all seem to be getting along just fine with each other. They were the only one's I was worried about. I'm going to try to get some pictures of him tonight.

Last night I was feeding the fish and watching the turtles come up and eat the food. I was to zoned in on watching them that I started to get that weird feeling like I was being watched. I turn my head and there is LOUIE about 2 feet away from my feet munching away in the water. He is NOT afraid of people, lol!

Sheri, LOL,I have no clue where he came from? We are close to the Seneca River. I say close, maybe a mile away, and our neighbors have ponds in their pastures. I don't know?? I can't imagine something so little traveling so far?

Shirley, our "flying dinosaurs" have been making their nightly appearance as well. The herons aren't afraid of us either! The kids run at them yelling, they just walk to the other side of the pond. I put a couple of shepherds hooks down there with garden flags thinking moving things blowing around might scare them...nope. Hubby got me 2 beautiful heron statues last year for Christmas to scare them away. They stand right next to them, lol.

The iris' did have a great spring! I did have some problems with rot afterward. I don't know if it was the crazy cold we had or what? I have a few die off completely. :( The ones that survived are multiplying like crazy.

Your daylilies are so gorgeous! How large is Big Bird? I am picturing a very large flower head :)

Col :) Yeah! It made it!! So happy!!

I hope the Hawaiian Surf made it okay too?

Beautiful Iris!
I am mailing late, because I thought I could.
From your original instructions:
"Please mail by Saturday, August 26th."
I guess I should have realized that was a typo, but it seemed reasonable to me at the time. ;). At any rate, Shirley is okay with it.
Sorry.

The Louie story gave me the giggles. Sounds like he made "The Incredible Journey" to get to your paradise, Vina. Love it!

ps... Tried to get some pictures of Louie last night. Taylor had a pool party yesterday and I think all the girls scared the poo right out of him. He stayed on the other side of the pond the whole time I was down there and wouldn't come close for a good picture. I'm trying again tonight :)

I, too, was one who thought the mail date was August 26th. Silly me, I should have looked....August 26th is not a Saturday. And here I was wondering why my partner was anxious to mail so early. She is far more on top of it than me LOL!

This is what I got from frankielynn:

Daylilies:
Double Redhead
Front Runner
Blue Moon Rising
Angel Artistry
Jean Wooten
Border Bride
Megan Taylor
and
FOURTEEN small sedums as extras

Frankielynn you went way above and beyond and I love everything. I'm sorry I probably won't get your box out today. But Monday. Hope you don't mind.

Good morning everyone!

Please Sue and everyone else no rush on the mailing. I don't mind if this swap gets extended. Especially with the hot heat a lot of you have been having.

As my gramma would say, " the water's fine...lets just sit back and stay a while" :)

Sue, I just looked up some of your daylilies! Amazing box!! What kind of sedums did you receive! Wow! Frankielynn 14 extras! You did go above and beyond!!
