Last year somebody started a thread about desktop photos. Some of the scenic views were outstanding.

My wallpaper is a pic of my garden,before the freeze,of this year. I think it was 2005. Anyway,it wil never look like that again. Phil

Oh Phil, maybe it will come back for you next year. Aren't the roots still OK? With water and some nice compost maybe you'll be surprised. Hope so.

I have a photo taken the day before the deer broke through the net and ate my early daylilies and hosta flowers. But they didn't eat the hosta leaves (much), and left a few daylilies. Many hostas hadn't put up scapes yet, so at least for now I have those. But tonight, or tomorrow night, they may sneak back while I am sleeping. Stinkers!

Nancy,it looks pretty good,considering the freeze. I know it will be back,it is just stunted this year. I don't think any garden looks exactly the same every year. Phil

Hosta and of course at work More Hosta. It's kind of a conversation piece there. I have found a few closet hosta holics at work cause they looked at my screensaver and I found out they love hostas too. Pretty fun. I even gave a couple of them some divisions--got to enable a little! Now the cleaning gal saves me coffee grounds by the pail-full and she bought some hostas for herself. You gotta love that.

I usually have hosta or the daylily garden, but right now I have my son's swimming relay team which broke a pool record this month. The hosta ain't much to write home about this year, and I have only one daylily bloom left to go.

My desktops get pics of the cats.
My cell phone has a pic of my "June" hosta as a screensaver.

I have a picture of my husband and grandson. Grandson Kyle is trying to teach his Grandfather how to use power tools! Cute picture! My DH is not good with stuff like that!

It replaced my picture of my 'statue' hosta bed.

I usually change mine with the seasons and right now it is a picture of some large hosta leaves with water drops on them.

Ken that is a very cool piece of artwork. You have a talented little artist there!

Great driveway art! I love his use of color.

My desktop is my favorite subject ever, a photo of my DH and 2 boys.

I scanned one of our oldest's artwork for my desktop and it almost caused a disaster....

My hat is off to you, Papou! I can't imagine going out to count all the eyes on my hostas every year. I look for the first year or two, but once they are past a dozen eyes then I figure they are going to live.

Thanks for keeping up the great recordkeeping!

This is the photo that I currently have on my desktop, with Rascal and Arc de Triomphe in the background. (The deer ate the daylily and hosta flowers the next day.)
DH thinks it's boring, so I'm going to switch to some new OT lily hybrids. They are really bright.

I think that might have been me last year. I always find 'desktops' interesting.

Here's a screen shot of my current desktop...

This is what is on my desktop. A pic of my town, taken as the sun was coming up around 9-15am, one morning last december.

Really neat pics., everyone!! Right now, mine is the standard that comes with the computer. Hubby just reformatted it
and it's SO much faster now! I've been inspired to come up with a neat pic. for my screen, thanks to this thread and all
the neat pics. you've shown us! Thanks, Nancy for starting this thread! It's been fun!

By the way, ken--I think you have proof of that *black hole* in the Universe, I've been blaming everything on, lately!!

Great pictures everyone. I really like donnie's sunrise shot and the little artists and all the pretty hostas. This just made me realize that I don't have anything on my laptop right now. Stupid Windows crashed in January, and I never did get around to putting a new picture up. I had a picture of Colorado until Jan. I may put one up of the Black Canyon until Oct. when my first granddaughter is born. My DH has one of my bluebonnet pictures on his computer, and it looks pretty nice. Someday I may have a decent hosta picture to use.

Right now, it's a picture of my two year old son, Magnus, watching some koi in a pond at the National Arboretum in DC:

This has been fun to look at. I change my desktop daily if not more. Ninty percent are of hostas and gardens but occasional a pet or person or sunset picture finds it way there. Here is my current one. This is my neice who is a very talented photographer. She "dresses up" does her own makeup, lighting and is her own model. This one is with her cat Midnight and a vintage dress from a thrift shop.

The germinator, not only a cool picture, but a cute kid. Thanks for posting. Dan
P.S. can you say your name or nickname, I feel weird calling you the germinator.


 o
RE: So what's on your desktop this year?? Hosta, or other.

Dan,

My name is Matthew. LOLOL

I guess it is a little strange calling someone the germinator... Thanks for the laugh this evening.

RE: So what's on your desktop this year?? Hosta, or other.

Matthew, thanks for sharing your name. I couldn't say "the germinator" without saying it in an Arnold Swarchenegger accent in my head.:) Here's a laptop pic of mine, that I took this summer in Alaska.

I have had this picture as my desktop for at least the last year or more... It is a single-leaf picture of the hosta Rascal, as it pokes through the railing on my front porch. Sadly, Rascal is now on its "decline" for the summer... seems like it is always one of the first ones to start showing winter dormancy...

Buff

P.S. Sorry I haven't been posting much lately. Getting ready to deliver a baby in ~5.5 weeks, busy getting baby's room all set up, etc.

Hope everyone has been having a great hosta summer!

Buff's desktop... hosta Rascal

Your son is adorable. That picture makes me think back to when my 2 blond boys were so small and cuddly. They now tower over me. How did I get to be the shortest person in the family? (My daughter is also inches taller).

Much less blooming in the yard right now. A few late daylilies, phlox, japanese anemones, impatiens, roses and of course late hosta flowers. Waiting for the sedum to color up.

Current desktop photo is 'Final Touch' ...my favorite late daylily

The picture of Magnus is adorable and would definitely grace my desktop if he was mine. I also added "Final Touch" to my Daylily lust list - thanks Bunnycat.

Hosta have graced my desktop the past three years....however....once a proud mother, alway a...
Right now my 21 year old is on my Desktop. She was a good sport to dress up as a Beautiful Bee and skate with Kenny Bear (company mascot) at a free community event hosted by my company.
