That picture of bleeding heart is amazing!

Here is a blossom on a Paw Paw (hope it makes fruit):

All gorgeous!
My buckeye has produced 2 seeds for the first time. How did you germinate yours?

RE: Spring 2010 Photos

Awesome! What kind of camera are you using? Those are nice Macro shots. Kudos.

I love the photo threads - thanks for starting one!

A cute little Flag Iris:

Here's my 'Hell Strip'. It looks great right now but will be horrid by mid-summer. It includes 'New Moon' Iris, Fleabane, and Blaze climbing rose:

RE: Spring 2010 Photos

heh.. I apologize for not labeling mine. They are all so common I figured they didn't need an introduction.
Esh - and that is an awesome shot of the paw paw.

RJ - It's a Pentax *ist DS. My first real camera was a Pentax K-1000 and I loved it so when I went digital I went with the Pentax. It needs to be cleaned but it is very user friendly and takes Pentax K mount lenses from the older SLRs too.

Transplanted (I still can't remember if it is Sandy or Shari I'm sorry.) :o/ - I still have the Angelina and Blue Spruce I got from your plant swap (I assume it was from your plant.) They will be happier in the rock garden than the pot they were suffering in I am sure. I have really enjoyed them though.. thank you!

Germinating buckeyes - fix up a pot of dirt in a one gallon container, about 3/4 full. Put the buckeye in the top and gently push down until it is just covered. Cover the pot with a little hardware cloth or screening to keep the squirrels out. Leave outside all winter so it can get rain (or water as necessary). It will put out a root over the winter and send up leaves in the spring.

Some from earlier this season..March 29th

Spring Cactus (from a slide show I was working on )

Hyacinth.. smells heavenly

Untended pond. Since this photo was taken the weeds are gone, the plants are actually planted and I have shoved a huge umbrella palm in there. Needs work still though!

Spring Star Flower

I have no idea what this is. Some kind of Spring bulb that I want to say starts with a P.

The Pink Lipstick strawberries are starting to fill out again. There is a nice big patch of them now.

RE: Spring 2010 Photos

Brenda, when you germinate your buckeyes, the screen on the pots is really important. I'm still finding buckeyes where the squirrels replanted my seeds a few years ago.

Great to see all the photos starting up again. Those were great threads. Aezarien, is that bulb a Puschkinia?


 o
RE: Spring 2010 Photos

Yes! That is what it is! Thank you lol. I knew it had a P, S, K, and A in it but couldn't put my alphabet soup together to remember what it was.

Having some issues here... used the wrong tag and can't edit the above post, plus it won't let me post 2x with the same subject line.

RE: Spring 2010 Photos

great pix, everyone!

iechris, to get around the whole can't post 2x in a row, just add another digit after the post subhead and you can post again. I really wish it would let you go back one you post a thread reply, but it doesn't.

RE: Spring 2010 Photos

Aezarien, What do you have planted in the first picture? Is it in Shade? Thanks!


 o
RE: Spring 2010 Photos

In the back are Shasta daisies and purple cone flowers. In the front are Cheddar pinks. That area gets some direct sun but mostly dappled sun all day. I just put them there and have considered moving them already because they can probably use more sun. The Shasta daisy and purple cone flower do well there but they reach high enough up to get more sun.
