And Alyssum saxatile. This is the first year it has bloomed. I think I would like it better if it wasn't exactly the same colour as dandelions >:0/ But it smells pretty!

Hope everyone had a nice long weekend. It started raining here yesterday afternoon and continued all day today. I did manage to get a few pictures before the wet weather set in.

Love everyone's pictures! It's been a cold, dreary weekend here, but that seems pretty typical for May long. We had a yard sale on saturday, and there were a few flakes of sn** coming down. Oh well, it's not the first time I had to dig out my long underwear for the yard sale!LOL

Here's what's managed to bloom through the cold weather:

This must be an historic iris, because it came from my parents-in-law's farm. A very tough and reliable iris, and I love how the buds look almost black. Too bad I don't know the name.

Sierra, your pictures always make me drool uncontrollably!lol But really, I LOVE that second pic of the white ones. Do you have a name for those?

Don't tell me that I'm going to have to send you a video on how to do the iris dance, am I? ;^)

RE: Garden Pics- Week of May 20

WOW great pictures everyone!

Here's what's new & blooming in my gardens

This tulip came up out of no where and has different colouring then the other two that I have. Hmmmmm! LOL

This patch of Dwarf Irises are doing fantastic but my Standard Irises in another flowerbed are not doing so well (and have suspicious "dents" in the soil behind the patch.... Hmmmmm!)

I am wondering if this is the same as what Gil has? Star-flowered False Solomon's Seal??

This is some type of Spurge (?) that I got from a friend last fall. Not sure of the name.

This is Argyranthemum "Vanilla Butterfly" that I planted in a container yesterday. I totally LOVE this creamy colour!

Here's what I ended up doing with my "railing" containers. Mostly Impatiens, some Lobelia (fingers crossed on that one), some Ivy and some Silver Nettle Vine.

A foliage container I put together yesterday -- hoping it will fill in nicely.

I did a few more containers yesterday too so hopefully they will all fill in nicely!

RE: Garden Pics- Week of May 20

Ang, that looks the same as my False Solomon's Seal (thanks for clarifying that Sharon). I looked up the difference and real S.S. has paired flowers all down the stalk, not a bunch at the end like F.S.S. I like your railing containers, they're going to look great!

Sierra, I really like that white & green tulip too, do tell. Laurie, that sure is a nice black/purple iris!

RE: Garden Pics- Week of May 20

Laurie, I don't think drool is good for your keyboard.... :)

Those white tulips have been in my garden for years....this year they seem to have more green colour in them. All my records say is double late tulips. There was 25 white and 25 yellow. The yellows I posted a pic of last week. They are very fragrant as well.

Well you might have to teach me that iris dance...but from previous years....the iris in my garden don't bloom for at least another month. There are lots of leaves and they are looking good so far.

My new garden bed has room for several more iris. hee hee.

RE: Garden Pics- Week of May 20

I have been eyeing up a white tulip with a green streak running through them called Spring Green Viridiflora Tulip.
Could it be possible that this is what they are?

Check out the link from Botanus.

A couple more irises blooming today(sorry Sierra!)

First bloom on SDB Dragon's Den, and it polyed too. I wonder if this will be a common thing for this iris?
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

And this one I got from Brenda, who says she's given away loads of it to friends, so I've named it Brenda's Friendship iris.
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

There should be a couple more blooming irises in a day or two. The MDB's are done, except for French Wine, which is in bud, and the SDB's are getting into the act now.:)

RE: Garden Pics- Week of May 20

Shelley, i have "Spring Green" but it hasn't bloomed yet this year. I'm just going to post some pictures here so if it happens to be on Photobucket still, i'll add it here.

Things are still pretty slow in my yard with very little blooming yet. Also, my camera keeps telling me that my batteries are low even though they've been charged, so i haven't been taking as many pictures as i would otherwise. Do rechargeable batteries eventually run out? Bummer!

Here's "Spring Green" - found it right away:

This is a weird year. Spring seems to come and go. It's apparently going again this weekend. My annuals are going to burst their containers! :O

RE: Garden Pics- Week of May 20

Laurie,
"A couple more irises blooming today(sorry Sierra!)"

Okay, LOL!!! ....if you have any more iris that bloom before mine bloom......you have to send them all to me. Or maybe just send me some warm weather......there was a heavy frost last night......and even the fountains couldn't be turned on this morning, they were full of ice.

The spring green tulips look like singles to me.....the ones I have are doubles.

Are you talking about the bump or the fence, Verena ?LOL

I can't believe the snow that you have. I feel for your plants too. Hope it melts fast.

RE: Garden Pics- Week of May 20

I wondered if you got it too, Verena. It doesn't look like as much as I got up on my hill, but still way too much. It's just plain old nasty for this time of year.

RE: Garden Pics- Week of May 20

Wow Savona, look at the size of your baskets already, great job!

Verena, you're little guy is sure getting big, send him over here when he's finished weeding for you. What a cute house, are you building a picket fence?
BTW, you sure got alot of *white* mold in your garden! ;)

Sharon

Ugh, you got it too Verena... poor you. I was thinking the same thing as Sharon, Brayden's getting so big! What a cutie. :0)

Nice pics everyone!

Shelly, I was talking about the fence, but there are days... ;o)

Sharon, my little weeder-in-training is available on a 'work-for-plants' basis...but unfortunately there is no warranty for his work ;o)

Well our 'white mold' is all gone now, and today I was out painting the pickets for the fence. They're pretty fancy...a special spear head that takes 6 cuts and a bunch of sanding for each one...DH "It's a good thing I love you 'cause I'd tell anyone else to go..." ;o)

I'll post pictures when they're done and up. When it's all finished there will be flowerbeds on both sides of the fence all the way along, an arbor over the gate, and a 16'X8' deck at the front door (the cotoneaster is getting pulled). The house may be cute now, but you should have seen it when we bought it 3 years ago. The eves that were there were hanging off, it had old white (dented, paint dripped) aluminum siding, broken and cracked windows with rotten/peeling trim, and half of the seals gone, and a leaky roof. It's sure been fun seeing the results of all the work we've been putting into it (siding, roof and windows thanks to the hail storm last year :o) One of these day's I'll dig out an old photo from the first year we where here.

Hey Sharon, nice patch eh? That was just a a little bit of it... this stuff gets around. It has a meeting coming up with Mr. Shovel. Just going to knock it back a little and plant something else too.
