Catching Up in Michigan (and frogs are here!)

We've had company for the holiday, so I've only been able to snap some photos but not post. Here's a few to start getting caught up:

DREAMCICLE SUPREME -- LOVE this daylily! I moved it last fall and it seems to have settled in happily.

AFRICAN GRAPE, my favorite and best-performing Munson:

SOUTH SEA SERENADE (I think -- I used to grow both South Sea Serenade and South Sea Enchantment, and the tag got mangled):

Photobucket

INTEGRATED LOGISTICS, a great performer from Hanson:

Photobucket

FIJI, with a nice large bloom:

Photobucket

CHRISTMAS CELEBRATION, a pretty bloom but not the best performer:

Photobucket

ETOSHA FLAME, another Munson that does very well here:

And the first frog of the season:

You have some real winners, Chris. African Grape is also a great grower here. Hard to choose a favorite but, leaving out the frog, I will choose Dreamcicle or Fiji. Looking forward to more posts.

Lovely! All of them are extra lovely. And The little frog is too cute. I can see why you love DREAMCICLE SUPREME, it is a stunner!

Hey, not fair! You've got frogs AND Integrated Logistics with petal pinching. Dreamcicle Supreme is a beauty. But it might make me go out and buy those orange creamcicles every time I saw it in the garden. Fiji looks really round and fluffy and more pink than orange. But African Grape is the most mouthwatering of all. (It's a good think it's almost dinnertime!)

Chris, love the little tree frog.. My Fiji didn't look as good as yours this year but this is the first bloom season at my house. I love ETOSHA FLAME.. That's my favorite...Ellie

DREAMSICLE SUPREME looks like it has great substance? It's a beauty. Think my favorite is SOUTH SEA SERENADE.

I like every one of your today's flowers! Especially Dreamsicle Supreme and Fiji.

All are beautiful! I especially like AFRICAN GRAPE, that one's been on my list for awhile.

Yesterday must have been the kick off for frogs in Michigan - I found a little frog nestled in a bloom of TUPAC AMARU yesterday, made my day. I was able to get a really good picture of him too. He was still there (or was there again) last night when I checked again.

I agree about DREAMCICLE. All of them look great. Nice pics.

You promised to mail me a frog last year. :( lol I hear them sometimes but have yet to ever see one. I like African Grape too-it's so hard to find true purples, they often bloom with a reddish cast here.

Thanks, everyone.

Dreamcicle Supreme is only in its second year, and yes, it does have nice substance and a decent amount of budding for a transplant.

Once the tree frogs show up, I usually find at least one each day. Sorry I forgot to mail you one, Lisa!

African Grape is such a great plant. Compared to most of the Munsons I grow, it's very vigorous. The color is steadfast and really doesn't have a red tint to the purple. I highly recommend that one.
